So a lot of people have been coming in to the clinic the past few weeks saying they are "extra tired." And are worried something is wrong with them. But that is completely normal for this time of year. In terms of seasonal movements, summer solstice (late June) is the peak of yang energy, and it actually begins to decline after that. Its lowest point of the year is winter solstice (late December). So basically from late June the expanding energy has been slowly storing and moving inward, and the contracting energy has been growing. The peak of the contracting energy (yin) is the winter solstice. So winter solstice is literally the most inward energetic of the whole year. That makes someone sleepy, and is completely normal! So sleep away folks, and feel good about it!
We also have these lovely 6-panel wooden Chinese screens for sale. Decorative and classy Asian flower and vase theme. These screens are amazing because they are just over 6 feet tall, cover a lot of linear space but can be folded for a small space. They are light and able to stand easily completely closed or almost completely open. Quite a rarity! $250 each. And we have one whose tops (the arch above the top flower) are cracked-that guy is $175.
The 4th annual holiday sale "Gifty, Thrify & Mostly Under $50!" is going on today and tomorrow at Good Shepherd Parish Life Center (75 Shepherd Way off US 421) in Frankfort. A lovely gathering of local artists and crafters selling their goods. And TLC's teas will be there! You should go.

Tea for Life!
We have 6 amazing teas for sale at The Light Clinic. They are all loose-leafed teas. All are true teas (grown from a tea bush or tea tree), while one is an herbal mixture. The teas are sold in these lovely tea tins and are accompanied by a tea card. The tea card shares the name of the tea, the country in which it grew and was processed, a poetic description of the tea and brewing instructions. Each of the five teas - Chrysanthemum and Goji Berry Herbal Tea, Golden Needles Black Tea, Sticky Rice Mini Pu'er Toucha, Green Jade Oolong and Tea Kuanyin Oolong- ranges from $9.00 - $12.50, while the ferrari of the teas, the Mayucha Sencha Supreme, is $32.00.
