In episode #58, Mary shares a meditation from Kristen Neff's book, Fierce Self-Compassion. The meditation is titled, Breathing Yin & Yang.

In Ancient Chinese philosophy, yin and yang is a concept of dualism, describing how opposite forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world.

Yin represents grounded Earth energy: It is receptive, cool, dark, and tied to the moon, the oceans, and the shade. It is usually associated with feminine energy.

Yang represents the sun: It is light, expansive, and usually associated with masculine energy.

When we balance the opposing but complementary forces of yin and yang in our modern lives, we can achieve more vibrant and sustainable health.
