The Five Element Series
Time & Location
What to expect
Come to 5 workshops this year (Spring 2019 - Spring 2020) so as you move through the seasons you gain an understanding and embodied awareness of The Five Elements and the Twelve Principal Meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It will bring a grounded and holistic perspective to your health, giving you stretches, qi-gong movements, herbal remedies to take into your daily life. As well as experiencing up to 5 shiatsu treatments and a range of other therapeutic practices from creative talented practitioners to help shift blockages or tonify imbalances of energy in you.
Certain faiths and schools of thought begin the year on the Spring Equinox. Energetically it makes sense, as spring signals birth. This Five Element workshop series was launched shortly after the Equinox with the first workshop on the Wood element that is associated with Spring. Each of The Five Elements are linked with different meridians - from the Twelve Principal Meridians. They will run throughout the year, approx one workshop a month.
At each workshop you will receive hands on shiatsu treatment and acutonics sound healing from Joy Rose that will be focusing on the meridians corresponding with the elements. The name of a meridian does not always correspond to the literal organ in the body, but more broadly the quality of Qi that is flowing along that meridian (energy pathway). Come along to the workshops to find out more!
