Guest Blog: Self-compassion

Our guest blog this week is from Kat, a uni student from Gippsland who we know through softball… and was rapidly converted to knitting! Kat is studying biomedicine and hoping for a career in research, and aside from sport and crafting she also enjoys science and playing music.

This week she writes about self-compassion.

How to be more Yin

The concept of Yin comes from ancient Chinese philosophies, where the understanding is that all things exist as inseparable and contrasting opposites. Yin represents the feminine, the colour black, earth and water and is about transformation. Yin provides spirit to all things and peaks at the winter solstice.
Yang is masculine, white, fire and warmth; yang is about creativity and activity and peaks at the summer solstice.
