It's Summer in South Florida and we hope you are all staying cool and dry. Frank Iborra wrote a note on the summer solstice and even though it has just passed, I'm sending it because it still has relevance in the future and relates to the upcoming study group. Following also is the information for the July events.

Today is the Summer Solstice which is the time when yang has reached its peak and yin begins to grow. This is considered in the Taoist tradition, the best time for people to control their vitality, so as not to over-extend themselves. The Summer Solstice is one of eight high energy days observed by the Yellow Emperor’s calendar.
This system of natural energetic cycles, as observed by the Chinese people over countless generations informs and guides us in regards to agriculture, daily activities, and spiritual cultivation. The Ancients through texts such as the I Ching, teach the natural energy cycles so that our intuition and natural instincts can evolve. This is one way to live in greater harmony and connect to the deep source.
