The Meaning of Yin and Yang
Take a look at the Yin/Yang Symbol at the top of this page. It’s a representation of how the energy of the cosmos is balanced. There’s the Yang light side of the symbol, and the dark Yin side. Both sides have a bit of the other side in it. This represents the constant change of Yin to Yang and Yang to Yin.
Start By Becoming Aware of Stillness
Reclaiming The Yin is a new way of presenting very old information. It’s a year-long opportunity to study, experience, and rebuild the quiet and creative side of yourself; that part of you ancient Chinese wisdom called - ‘Yin.’
We start by becoming aware of the stillness in nature that still exists around us, despite the din of news and noise that has become a constant presence. As we become more aware of the stillness around us, we’ll become more aware of it within ourselves - while learning new ways to make this ancient understanding a part of everyday living.
Entering into the flow of Yin ...
We begin in September ... at the time of Autumnal Equinox, when Yin energy is increasing in the northern hemisphere. We’ll follow its evolution through the entire year by looking at a different facet of Yin each month, particularly how this energetic force affects us physically, mentally, and emotionally. We’ll also pay close attention to the effects Yin has on our day-to-day activities, or what a poet from the past described as: “chop wood, and carry water.”
