In the Five-Element Acupuncture tradition, Winter is associated with the element of Water. Just as Water’s nature is to “go with the flow,” how can we become more adaptable, embracing the gifts of Winter? The true essence of the Water Element, and thus of Winter, is strength and endurance. Water has a will to survive in any form and the power to make everything else exist. Similarly, we must also have the courage and ambition to make it through the long Winter months, being patient and trusting that the warm Spring months of rebirth will follow.
