A Chinese perspective: In Chinese thought, summer has been associated with the color red, the sound of laughing, the heart organ, the fire element and a red phoenix bird.

The Chinese were also great believers in balance. So to celebrate the summer solstice as the Chinese philosophers did, you might …

Stand facing south, considered the direction of time in ancient Chinese philosophy. Just stand for a few moments and honor the “southness” of summer.

Balance your fire element. Go swimming in a cold, dark pool or stream

Wear red!

And get ready for our next Gallery Exhibition, “Simply Red!”
