A session, that is part of the COMBAT SAD course explored the idea of balance and how to assess it in our every day lives, was hosted at Big Worle.
Rachel Stark natural health, wellness biohacker and eduhacker led the group in an activity that used the Yin Yang theory to help us see when we are in or out of balance and how finding balance can help us live a happier life.
The concept describes how contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
The group looked at what each side of the symbol can represent and matched up the opposite forces under the Black feminine Yin and the White masculine Yang.
Light against Dark, the Sun with the Moon, Heaven and Earth, as Above as Below, and Fire with Water were all some of the examples that were discussed as principals to look at areas of our lives that need to be balanced to for us to live in harmony.
In-depth conversations were had and everyone received a journal to help keep records of their thoughts, feelings and life events as a helpful tool to empty busy minds, so we are able too process the fast paced incoming knowledge and information we experience everyday.
We were reminded by Rachel that balance is one of the keys to a happy healthy life.
We are not Human doings, we are Human beings.
It was a very gentle session and we are thankful to Big Worle for making this all possible.
