Autumn’s Embrace: The Power of Letting Go – Metal Element Workshop
The seasons have teachings for us, if we have the wisdom enough to listen. Tuning into Nature’s rhythm, we can find answers to life’s meaningful questions. How do we move and adapt with the cycles of change? How can we let go as effortlessly as the trees release their leaves every autumn? How can grief free us into the poignancy of appreciation? How can we return our sacred reserves of energy back deep into the roots of our being, to restore throughout the stillness of Winter, only to emerge again anew and refreshed in Spring?
The 5 Elements provide a framework for understanding aspects of nature’s phases and how they are reflected in our own mind and body. According to TCM, Autumn is associated with Metal- the element of compressed earth that creates precious materials like gold, platinum, crystals and gem stones and governs our ability to breathe and be inspired, let go, release, find what’s most valuable and cultivate appreciation for all that is.
No requirements or prerequisites needed. Beginners and seasoned practitioners alike are invited to take some time to reflect on the aspects of this season and element to discover your own inner connection with its virtues and healing qualities for yourself.
