Our June retreat in Southern California will focus on bringing jing and shen together, wherever you are in your reproductive years.
According to Chinese medicine, regardless of age, fertility is the proper combination of jing and shen.
Jing is essence, governed by the kidney system of energies (water); and shen is spirit, governed by the heart system of energies (fire)
Life comes from the combination of essence (water) and spirit (fire). When we are younger, we have more essence; as we age we have more spirit. The older we are, it is more essential to nourish essence with tonics, diet, rest, herbs, acupuncture and exercises that increase blood flow to the reproductive organs. But because of the percentage of shen as we approach our perimenopausal years, its even more important to attend to the spirit.
Nourish your spirit, and live the passion of your own existence first. Only then can you provide adequate essence for another.
