The Energy of Autumn

Today we began our Qigong practice at Alice Keck park. In Qigong we pay close attention to the energetic aspect of each season and how they correlate to our vital organs. In his book “Chi Nei Tsang”, Mantak Chia writes:

“The spleen, pancreas, and stomach are the organs through which the earth element functions. Operating like a switchboard, it is in the charge of absorbing, forming, and transporting the energy and chi from food. The earth produces food, and so its energy is the energy of Indian summer or harvesttime. In almost every land and culture, this is the time for assessment, reflection, planning and preparation. This is when we feel the first chill of autumn, which usually makes us momentarily ground and stabilize ourselves so that we can make sure that we are prepared for the coming winter.”
