This is the first of a series of five 6-week courses built to enrich your understanding and breadth of your internal arts practice. You'll come with me through an exploration behind the eastern philosophies that deeply link to our practices - but are overlooked due to our overfocus on the physical movements.
These rich practices are guides through life.
In this first course, we will begin by exploring the broader philosophies that become fluid guides in daily life. You'll learn deeper techniques for sensing qi, discover how our Western view of the nervous system deeply links to Yin Yang Theory, and explore meridians and acupressure points that link to the elements they represent.
This 6-week session focuses on Winter and the Element of Water.
In this session, you'll learn the Water Element's perspective on:
- Qi and the Felt Sense
- Yin-Yang Theory
- Trauma and Healing: East meets West the Kidney Organ System and the Brain Nervous System, Fascial Tissue
- Fear - The Driving Emotion
- Zhi - Our Spirit of Will
- Ting Jing - Listening Skill
- The Kidney Organ System
- Acupressure Points To Support You During Winter
Join me and a community of folks who are layering the philosophy behind taiji and qigong into our daily lives. You'll learn, laugh, experience and share during this 6-week course - the first in the 5 Element Course series!

What are these Elements?
At first glance, the elements in this theory seem to have little to do with our humanness, but the innate intelligence and poetry of this calls to the roots of our own existence.
Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal are the five phases or elements that represent a day, year, lifetime and teach us about our own internal health as it relates to the universe.
The Phases and Our Taiji
These phases give us clues to the balance in our lives. They show where we have stagnation in our bodies and lives because they reflect back to us when we are pushing too hard, (like at work) or when we are saying yes too often. Or when we're stuck trying to hard to make something in our lives different instead of allowing the situation to unfold.
They educate us to keep our lives in balance and when we don't, teach us how to get back to center.
These also appear in our taiji form. In the places we have pause. Where we lose our balance or get caught in trying too hard, or not hard enough.
Join me and a community of folks who are layering the philosophy behind taiji into our daily lives. You'll learn, laugh, experience and share during this 2-hour workshop - the first in the 5 Element series!
