What is dryness, and how does it affect us? Dryness is more than just a physical consideration; dryness also powerfully influences our spirit. External dryness first affects our Lung and our relationship to atmosphere. This intimate relationship to the sky has a strong effect on our sense of majesty, humility, significance, and insignificance. Internal dryness reflects the reservoir of the Kidney and our relationship to hiddenness and depth. Our relationship to mystery and our sense of ancientness are put to the test in the presence of dryness, such as we find under the vast skies of the desert landscape in New Mexico.
This recording is a provocative, evocative exploration of the experience of dryness in the human spirit. It is an excerpt from an herbal lecture in New Mexico. No knowledge of herbs is necessary to appreciate this transmission of our majestic and ancient connection to moisture, in its presence or in its (seeming) absence.
