Chinese Meridian – Earth : Inner Groin of Happiness

Earth is the transition from Yang masculine energy to Yin feminine energy, and it holds the space between the expanding growth of Spring, active offerings of Summer and the inward, cooler, mysterious Fall and Winter seasons. In the way that both nourish and feed us emotionally and physically, Earth that feeds mind body and soul is the same as Mother who supports, nourishes and cares freely and abundantly.

The patience and compassion that comes with mothering takes time, and Earth energy may also need time to develop self nourishment and inner compassion. The more we can support our inner Earth, the more we also support the inner Mother who nourishes and feeds our creativity, compassion and connection.

The Stomach and Spleen act in this same way to nourish our bodies, and have the energy to help us process thoughts and feelings and begin to physically and emotionally "digest" our mental food. This session is deep hip openers leading to Hanumanasana
