Winter is traditionally the season of hibernation. Winter conjures up images of coldness, darkness, rain, mist and fog. It is a time of stillness and quiet, to move slowly and be more introspective. A time to rest, to meditate, and to store physical energy. During Winter the body’s qi will naturally move deeper into the body to nourish the interior and to protect against cold penetration. The cold and darkness drives us to seek warmth by rugging up and nourishing our bodies with warming comfort foods. It is a great time to cook a warming feast and gather with friends and family to enjoy it.
