Tuesday was the Fall Equinox. We think of the equinox as a day of 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. It’s also a time when we transition from Late Summer to Autumn, from the time of the spleen to the season of the lungs.
It can be 80 degrees and then 60 degrees during this transition season. To keep balanced keep some of your Late Summer habits while incorporating Autumn’s metal energy activities, like meditation, into your schedule. We’re still in an outwards season but moving towards more quiet and inward moments. A way to do that is have a potluck and incorporate some hot spices to your foods.
Let us know what are some of your favorite Autumn activities!
There will be mini acupuncture treatments and chair massage by massage therapist Ed Goll.
Give away prizes include Dr. Lee’s self designed t-shirts and tote bags and a ticket raffle will also be underway, a basket full of Traditional Eastern Medicine treats.
We hope to see you there!
