Winter – a time of inner reflection and renewal

Winter is traditionally a time for being indoors; cosy and snug. It’s a time to go inward and reflect, and to ‘build’ our personal wisdom. It’s a good idea to revive this tradition, especially in these times of so much uncertainty and rapid change.

Taking time out for some inwardness and restoration during winter is really an opportunity to prepare oneself for a vibrant ‘blossoming’ in the spring.

Don’t forget the body’s special needs as it copes with the cold weather. In some cases this can be the extra air pollution caused by smoke from fires. This is especially important for people with TB, as has been emphasized with World TB day on the 24 March 2017.

This issue offers many ideas to consider for winter inner reflection and renewal.
