Why Are We Always So Busy? How to Balance Yin and Yang

October 20, 2010 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Wednesday, October 20, 2010, 5:30-7pm
Greenstar’s Meeting Room
Amanda Lewis, L.Ac
The philosophy of Yin and Yang is the foundation of Chinese Medicine, both in theory and application. Learning to mindfully apply these principles as we engage in every day life can help us to feel more healthy, energetic, and in harmony with our surroundings.


So many of us feel chronically busy—almost as though we just can’t stop. Why is it so hard to really relax? From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, in order to maintain stability in the outer world as well as in the body, there must be a healthy balance of both Yin and Yang activities. For many of us these days, the dynamic is clearly more heavily weighted toward an excess of Yang, or habitual activity, which over time can lead to a significant depletion of Yin.

This class will explore the following questions:

• What are Yin and Yang?
• How did things get so Yang?
• The Importance of Preserving Yin
• How to Cultivate our Yin
