what kapha season is good for...


This time of year it feels like I'm doing a lot of talking about the struggles of kapha season. These last weeks it's been a herculean feat to get out of bed in the am. Some days it feels like my digestion has ground to a halt. I can feel the moist-cold settling in, in many ways. But kapha season has its place in this natural cycle - because kapha is good at growing. A few weeks ago I got my new seeds in the mail, and they've been in the cool basement, seated in heavy, moist soil, under lights, getting their kapha on. And voilá! So in honor of these seedlings, I'm trying to recognize the positive attributes of kapha in balance - the solid foundation it lends, its stability, its ability to nuture. Here's to new growth!
