Harmonious Living Through the Guidance of Nature

Harmonious Living Through the Guidance of Nature

Do you feel differently during different seasons? Do you prefer one Season over another? Do your physical, emotional and mental states of being shift from season to season?  The Chinese view these cycles that we call seasons as  ‘phases’ or a ‘movements’ of energy.  Because human beings are an inextricable part of nature, as with the Seasons, we also experience these energetic movements within ourselves. How can we work with the inherent and ever changing cycles within ourselves and our world to cultivate deeper balance in our health, relationships and place in the world? What does healthy and balanced mean? We know it’s going to be described differently by different people, but in the broadest sense it’s a sense of harmony, well being, and inner calm.

Join Eric Hartmann, L.Ac. in a day of playfully exploring all this. We will look at Chinese Medicine from the Worsely 5 Element perspective and delve into what it means to gain insight for ourselves into a healthy and balance life.   By looking through the cycles and lens of nature: Winter, Spring, Summer, Late Summer and Fall, the associated five elements of Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal, and the linked virtues within ourselves and society: Wisdom, Kindness, Orderliness, Faithfulness, and Appropriateness we can expand our inner knowing and further this innate quest for a harmonious place of body, mind and spirit.  

Regardless of what body/mind/spirit system one practices, or if one is new to this exploration, the natural law of the 5 Elements can deepen our awareness of ourselves and our health.  This informal and interactive workshop is bound to deepen your connection to Nature and to your inner Nature!

Wuji Qigong, Tea & Song
Jun
2
to Jun 3

Wuji Qigong, Tea & Song

Wuji (Primordial) Qigong was created by Zhang San Feng, a Daoist master and legendary  800 years ago, in the Wudang Mountains. This ancient magical Daoist qigong form combines circular movement, breathing and visualization, stimulating the flow of qi (vital force) for health, longevity and spiritual opening.

By working with the primal energies of the five directions and the qualities of each—(East: The Green Dragon, South: The Red Phoenix, West: TheWhiteTiger, North: The  Black Turtle and Center: The Yellow Dragon)—the practitioner is performing an energetic ritual that has been done for hundreds of years. The movements, done in a circling pattern, guide us into a powerful and primordial state of grace and healing. This class is open to beginners as well as experienced students of Qigong and will include basic Qigong theory, movement, Daoist cosmology, Daoist stories, music and healing meditation. And, of course, Tea! 

Solala Towler has been teaching qigong for 28 years. He has been the publisher of The Empty Vessel: The Journal of Daoist Philosophy and Practice, since 1993. He has had 12 books on the Daoist arts published and has recorded four cd’s of meditation/qigong music. In addition, he is a founding board member of the National Qigong Association and leads tours to China to study Qigong and Meditation with Daoist teachers in the sacred Wudang Mountains.
