Water and Winter
The gift of Water is the security of living in touch with the bedrock of life. It is the confidence that comes from being in touch with our own resources, even if we’re not sure exactly what they are. Water is the rooted strength of a relaxed power that comes from truly resting in what we do know, surrounded and supported by what we don’t know, but which we can sense, in the silence, and in the dark. Winter’s challenge is to turn inward, and to look for that sustaining light in our own depths. To live, we do not depend on any outward sign of life. Let the whole world hibernate and grow dark — I hold this single flame inside myself, this pilot light, burning. We do not need the outer light. We carry the light within.
About the Emails
Would you like to get a daily reminder about winter, with suggestions for simple exercises and practices that can help you receive the clarity and strength of Water more fully?
Starting November 30, you can begin to receive 30 days’ worth of Water integration emails, bringing you thoughts, images and reminders of how to immerse in the energy of winter and receive its benefits most fully. This one-month subscription will support participants in integrating Water practices and insights into their daily lives through reminders of practical ways to develop healthy Water.
There will be two emails each day: in the a.m. you will receive an email with a picture and text, suggesting a thought or practice for getting the most out of winter; and in the p.m. you will receive another email with an image to reflect upon and enjoy. For those who want CEUs, once the 30-day series is finished, you can fill in the worksheet and take the quiz to receive your certificate.
If you sign up for the emails after November 30 , your email series will start from the beginning within a few days.
