Digestive health is the basis for radiant well-being, including our physical, mental, and emotional health. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) looks at the energetic balance of paired organs with the meridian system. Using particular tastes found in food and herbs and other combined techniques, we can maintain balance and tonification in these areas. Combining TCM with breath work, meditation, and gentle yoga poses, we can create an environment that supports our system and provides harmony in how we live.
Session Three: Fall Session: Lung and Large Intestine
Date: October 26, 2019
Location: Breath by Breath Yoga
The Lungs and Large Intestine are responsible for helping us let go of whatever we don't need (emotionally and physically). Sadness and grief are associated with the energy of these organs. Imbalances in these areas include: difficulty processing grief and loss, a weak immune system, allergies, asthma, shortness of breath, constipation, or dampness in the body, as well as weight gain. It can also show up as physical weakness, irritability, discouragement, and apathy.
A healthy, balanced system provides clear thinking, openness to new ideas, and good communication, the ability to organize and go internal as well as a strong immune system.
Elizabeth Spicher and Sandy Dixon will guide you through practices to help keep these meridians balanced. During meditation and savasana, acupuncture needles will be used. Tips and practices will be provided that can be helpful throughout the season. Come with comfortable, loose clothing and a notebook/pen.
This series includes 5 sessions, each tailored to a particular season. Participants can attend as many as they wish. Working through all five provides seasonal practices that act as a blueprint for optimal health and well-being.
Sessions include: discussion, acupuncture or acupressure, breath work, simple yoga poses, meditation tools, tastings, use of essential oils, and more.
