Focus of the Month - July

Prithvi पृथ्वी - Earth Element

Meaning

Translates to “earth”. The earth element is important because it is the grounding force in our lives. We need stable roots, a stable base in order to be able to grow.


Significance

Our lives, especially in big cities like Berlin, have become more and more individualized, we often live far away from our families and have an unstable surrounding. We keep changing jobs, homes and relationships and are therefore in a constant flow of life with very few grounding factors. We are constantly growing and moving but be are often missing a stable anchor that holds us from floating away. Stress symptoms are a consequence of very hectic lives that represent a lack of grounding in our lives.
