Food n' Mood: Winter wisdom from Chinese medicine

Thursday, January 19, 2012 - 23:00 to Friday, January 20, 2012 - 01:00

Bracing for the Winter blahs? Dreading the dumps? There's hope!

Come to a free seasonal "Food n' Mood" workshop with Pauline Sok Yin Hwang. Chinese medicine offers time-tested wisdom for rolling with the punches, going with the flow, and balancing yourself through the different seasons. Winter is the season of the kidney-adrenal system, a critically important foundation for the whole body, how we flourish, and how we cope with stress. Learn to use Winter to nourish and rejuvenate your kidney-adrenals, and yourself.

Bring: your dinner - take-out, store-bought, home-cooked, whatever. (Don't worry, you won't have to share it with anyone!)

You'll leave with: helpful recipes, tips, meditations, and a newfound appreciation (or at least tolerance!) of Winter.

Cost: Free

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
