Traditional Chinese Medicine on Grief and Cold

Speak Plainly

Jan 18 2024 • 24 mins

As the winter chill sets in, emotions can run as deep and cold as the season itself. I'm Al Medicine, your host, inviting you to join me on a personal journey through the stark landscape of grief. During an extraordinary cold snap in the Pacific Northwest, with nothing but silence for company, my thoughts wandered to the loss of my cherished dog, Key. This poignant exploration into the heartache of winter is not just about weathering the frost, but about thawing the ice that grief can seal around our hearts.

Amidst the solitude, I discovered the delicate balance between solitude and sorrow, and how rituals like funerals provide waypoints in our emotional recovery. You’ll hear how a simple Facebook post about my experience struck a chord with many, offering a glimpse into the shared nature of our struggles. As we traverse the cultural complexities surrounding grief and the natural rhythms that guide our healing, I extend an invitation for you to reflect upon your own unaddressed sorrows, finding comfort and growth in the courageous act of facing them.
