SEASONS OF THE BREATH:

 ZOOM ONLINE HEALING CLASS SERIES FOR SPRING

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the season of spring is connected with the Wood element.   Like the rising of sap in the trees, the Wood energy rises upward in all of nature  as the life force pushes up from the cold winter earth, and new life is awakened and flower buds begin to push through.    The Wood element is powerful, forceful and determined as the wind, and yet also flexible and resilient as tall bamboo swaying softly in the breeze.   So, springtime is a dynamic time of movement, activity and change – throughout  nature as well as in our lives.

To be in harmony with nature’s energy and rhythm during spring, we need to be careful of excessive tension and pressure build up in the body-mind which produce hyperactivity, heat, blocked energy and emotional volatility.  Overwork and over-activity need to be balanced with relaxation and down time in order to protect yourself from chronic stress, fatigue and burn out, and to restore mental and emotional clarity and harmony.   It’s important to go for regular walks in the greening power of nature and take in the vital life energy.   Exercises that are supportive to body-mind wellbeing include gentle stretching, loosening up and softening  the muscles, discharging accumulated tension and slow movements to keep your energy circulating smoothly and harmoniously. 

It’s also an optimal time to spend some “soul time” in silence and solitude, to allow in some new inspirations and creative ideas that you’d like to plant in the coming months ahead.

During our Spring Seasons of the Breath Healing Classes, we shall cultivate skills that nourish and tonify the body’s over-all vitality, relax and calm the restless mind, ease tension and stress, transform irritability and anger into positive emotions, and help us connect with the divine Source of healing.  

Our classes will include transformational movement and breathwork (qigong), meditation, TCM theoretical background, and self healing massage.

SEASONS OF THE BREATH:

 ZOOM ONLINE HEALING CLASS SERIES FOR WINTER


In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the season of winter is connected with the water element.  Its power is deep and yin.  And like nature in her resting period, this is a time of inwardness, reflection, quietude and rest.  

To be in harmony with nature’s rhythm during winter, we need to gather our energies, replenish ourselves, build up our vital qi (life force), and stay warm.

It’s also an optimal time to spend some “soul time” to connect with the richness of our inner world, to see what needs clearing out and what can be newly seeded in our lives.

During our Winter Seasons of the Breath Healing Classes, we shall cultivate skills that nourish and tonify the body’s over-all vitality, calm the restless mind, transform anxieties and fears into positive emotions, and help us connect with the divine Source of healing.  

Our classes will include transformational movement and breathwork (qigong), meditation,  self inquiry, and self healing massage.
