Summer is associated with the Fire element. The Fire element is connected with expansiveness, maturity and showing our true colours to the world, like a rose opening its petals to the sun. In the summer, qi flow is particularly sensitive in the Fire organs and meridians of the heart, small intestine, pericardium, or heart protector, and triple heater meridians, which cultivate joy, compassion and love. This practice can be done any time of year but is particularly strong in the summer months. It will help you feel the warmth, connection and openness of summer, and feed these qualities into your relationships and your daily life.
