"The only thing constant in life is change." ... Rochefoucauld
We face changes every day. Breaking out of our normal routine and thought patterns can be stressful. Even changes that bring happiness into our lives can cause us to be anxious. Join us for a series of Life Transitions Workshops where presenters will share techniques in dealing with change and how to incorporate change into a happier, healthier lifestyle.
These are FREE workshops... everyone is invited!
In Chinese Medicine, energy travels in the entire body through acupuncture channels. Health occurs as a result of that energy coursing through the body in a balanced fashion. There are numerous points along those channels, where energy can be become blocked, stagnated or over stimulated, creating an imbalance in the body. Balanced qi is the key to health.
This special workshop will teach how to call the acupuncture points, through chanting, to create whole body health. The participants will learn point names, locations and chanting techniques that will call the qi energy to remove sickness and promote whole body health.
“If only my life were different, then it would be okay.” Most of us are on this unattainable quest to find something other than what we have, something that we think will please us more. What would it be like to experience contentment in your life, just as it is?
