Journey Through The Elements
April 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Feeling irritable, short-tempered, overextended, or stressed?
The stagnation of Winter takes its toll on the liver and gallbladder – two organs represented by the Wood Element that signify growth and rebirth in our lives. Emerge from the stillness of Winter and Spring into action!
Join us for this interactive 2-hour workshop with Dr. Christina Casado where we’ll learn the philosophy behind Traditional Chinese Medicine through the exploration of the five elements. This workshop is one of a five-part series that explores each element.
During this workshop, we will explore practical concepts originating from this ancient and comprehensive medicinal system you can apply in your daily life for balancing your mind, body, and emotions using the Wood Element.
Inspired by the Spring season, we’ll release stagnant energy to create space for personal growth, compassion, benevolence, and honesty. Be prepared to shout and let go of old frustrations that get in the way of your natural feelings of inspiration and freedom.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll create your unique vision for self-renewal:
- Wake up early one morning and watch the sunrise.
- Fly a kite on a windy day.
- Make time to walk in the woods on a sunny afternoon.
- Sow seeds with your bare hands.
- Stop resisting what you need to flourish.
- The possibilities are limitless!
This workshop is free to attend. Please RSVP as seating is limited.
