Bringing in the Light of Winter

Rebecca Rice L.Ac., MSAOM Istock winter reflection

Winter is a time for spiritual and psychological reflection.


According to Chinese Medical Theory Winter is related to the kidneys, our deepest sense of self, our will and drive. The kidneys are the body’s fundamental storehouse of energy and vitality. This energy is influenced by genetics and the lifestyle we choose to lead.

Our creativity and the ways in which we engage with the world stem, in part, from the kidneys. Winter is a season for self -reflection at the deepest level of our being. The cold draws our energy inward to allow greater exploration of our spiritual and psychological depths. The introspection procured during this time can lead us into a vibrant spring, bound with life and self- expression and the implementation of new ideas.

So, what is your purest deepest drive? What do you need or wish to cultivate and contemplate for yourself as you marinate in the stillness of winter?
