One of my passions is embracing the richness of nature and allowing it to nourish me. Whether this is through seasonal eating, understanding the moon phases or getting insights into myself through the Chinese Five Elements. Life makes sense when I do this and this is what I love sharing with my clients and students.
This quote from Chief Seattle sums it up for me...
“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”
This is a two part freebie.
Part one is a simple and light-hearted quiz about the Chinese Five Elements and Intuitive eating. The aim is to help you get to know the 5 Elements and in particular which of the 5 Elements is showing itself for you at the moment. The Element that scores the highest may be what is referred to in Traditional Acupuncture circles as your Causative Factor (CF) i.e. the element from which all other imbalances originate, and if it is balanced it is the key to regaining balance and health.
There second part is called 'Food Super Powers and the Five Elements' and gives insights into the different aspects of food and nutrition and how these weave together with nourishing ourselves.
This freebie gives you insight into eating during the Autumn waxing moon phase; a time of nourishment and re-nurturing our bodies.
