Embrace the changing of the seasons as we transition from Summer & the Fire element to Autumn & the Metal Element.  We’ll honor the growth and transformation of the most Yang time of year, enjoy the harvest and begin to turn inwards, continuing our journey towards the most Yin time of year.   As the leaves begin to drop, we too will keep what we need and shed the rest.

This 3 hour workshop will care for all layers of being (physical, emotional, spiritual) using the map of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Medical Qigong.  The practice will incorporate:

  • organs and meridians assigned to this element
  • how to identify where you may be emotionally out of balance with this element & how to find  balance again
  • practices to clean up, strengthen and regulate the energy body on all 3 levels using gentle qigong flow, yin & restorative poses, self massage, sounds & meditations
