Summer is the season of the heart according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is the season to step into your joy. An important teaching of Chinese medicine is that there is a seamless continuum between the body and the environment around us.
In Five Phase Theory we have entered the cycle of summer, the time cycle, of greatest Yang, and this season is also called ‘Fire’. All cycles are manifestations of the movement of Yin and Yang, and the seasons are no different. The time of Yin in autumn and winter is a time of resting while both spring and summer are Yang seasons. Yang represents growth, expansion and outward movement. Spring begins this movement of growth, and summer takes over to allow growth to expand to its fullest. During summer we stay healthy trying to mimic this Fire/Yang movement of nature, yet we want to be mindful, to not overdo things. Both too little and too much divert us from harmony. Thus with Qigong practice we work to balance the Yin and Yang.
