Autumn Qigong (Cultivation of Life Force Energy)

With Yongin Kim
$20 with preregistration; $25 drop-in

Autumn is nature’s season of harvest and the beginning of the yin cycle.  During this time, we are invited to slow things down, to look within and open up to our inner wisdom.  This is a time to detox our body and our mind by letting go of any things, ideas and goals that do not serve us any longer and to clear some space for being in the now.

 Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Taoist philosophy, this workshop will guide the practitioner to align with the natural cycle and flow of life through gentle qigong movements for the organ systems, also known as "acupuncture without the needles." Autumn is associated with the Metal Element in TCM, and is connected to the organs and meridians of the lungs and the large intestines.  We will explore gentle qigong movements and organ massage using our voices and the vibrations from the Himalayan singing bowls specifically tuned for the lungs to prepare for this season of rest.

 All levels are welcome.  The gentle movements can be practiced seated as well.  Reserve a spot with Jan at bodygrace@verizon.net by Saturday, November 10 to receive the preregistration price.
