In each of these short workshops we’ll begin to unpack the forces of Yin (Oct 18) and Yang (Nov 1) as a way to understand the groundwork for traditional Chinese medicine and qi gong.
Each workshop will have a larger focus on one half of the circle, but one cannot be in YIN without acknowledging YANG, and vice versa. As a group we’ll discuss how we experience these forces in the everyday as well as within, leading into simple qi gong exercises and meditations to access and cultivate the inner knowledge of these forces as desired.
