The reason why I chose to teach six days for the Earth workshop is that in this highly political time that divides us it is urgent that we rally around the question of the Earth element as it teaches us how all elements needs to come together to create the world as Earth. It is the integration of one being with the universe.
Commentary on the I Ching by Hua-Ching Ni:
"The hexagram K’un Earth on Earth, is Receptiveness as a way to accomplish, continue, receive, follow, realize, shape and stabilize. It symbolize the feminine and motherhood, and expresses the self-balancing means harmonizing with all beings and things that are brought forth."
Commentary by Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée on Rooted in Spirit:
"Earth is the great purveyor of form, in which the gifts of Heaven are lodged. But even before speaking of form, we must introduce the form-without-specific-form that which bends itself to become all forms: the breath qi."
From the Secret Treaty of the Ritual Orchid (translated by Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee):
"The spleen and stomach are responsible
for the storehouse and granaries.
The five tastes stem from them."
So, the stomach receives all the food that is made up of the five tastes, and by the work of the stomach and spleen these same tastes will reconstitute my being.
As the peak of the Yang energy of summer is decreasing and we are about to start a new cycle of our life in the coming fall, we are in the perfect place to focus on centering and the Power of Intention.
This connects us to the Earth Element – it is a transitioning and ingesting time.
As usual the work will include C O R E M O T I O N Inner structure as a way to awake and align ourselves. We’ll then evolve into C O R E M O T I O N Contemplative Action for an individual and collective exploration of Earth in relation to the other four elements.
