Qigong and the Five Elements Series
Led by: Miranda Maher
From September 22, 2018 at 4:00 pm until October 27, 2018 at 5:30 pm at Dumbo
In the Taoist/Chinese story of our origin (super abbreviated), first there was “Wu” the emptiness that held all possibilities. Out of this arose Yin and Yang. Then there was a blooming of the Five Elements: Water, Wood, Metal, Fire and Earth. From Yin and Yang and the Elements, “the 10,000 Things” blossomed… meaning basically All Things. These Five Elements (and Yin and Yang) dance—in nature, in culture, in our bodies and emotions. Learning to see through this lens can deeply change the way we approach our life. We will get to know the Five Elements with our bodies and visioning using Qigong movement, Sound and Imagery. Each of the first five classes will focus on one Element. The sixth class with bring it all together and offer ways to start integrating this deep, powerful and pretty ancient viewpoint into your everyday life.
