Stillness of Winter
As the three-day celebration of the winter solstice continues in the northern hemisphere, simple practices for health include massaging the kidneys, drinking extra water, and massaging the kidney Meridian (from the balls of the feet, up the inside of the leg, around the waist/Belt Channel to the kidneys themselves.)
Warm soups, root vegetables, and legumes are good to eat throughout the winter. In meditation and life, seek quiet time and a connection to the earth. Imagine the sap that is still inside the trees and the seed that quietly waits beneath the soil.
“The oak sleeps in the acorn. The bird waits in the egg. And in the highest dream of man, a waking angel stirs.” -Napoleon Hill
