In this class we continue with advice provided by The Wheel of the I Ching Hexagrams designed by the great Daoist sage Shao Yong (1011-1077 AD), taking the second set of 32 hexagrams assigned to the spring and summer. The exercises for clearing and strengthening the organs of spring and summer are primarily oriented at the liver, heart and digestive system.
The spring time is a time of new beginnings, growth and expansion of possibilities, but to make room for the new we have to clear the old, therefore, the spring is a time for cleaning, purifying and planning so that the expansion which summer brings can take place without difficulties. The spring is also characterized by increased sexual activity where the energy of relationships intensifies.
Following the advice in the hexagrams for the spring and summer we will focus on the practices for strengthening the natural tendency for yin and yang to seek relationship through the power of sexuality as well as the nature of the obstacles we encounter in developing the basic and intermediate level of practices.
