Qigong Practice Spring Transition (Super Moon)
March 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$30 – $35
Dr. Jennifer Johnston continues her Qigong Classes
Qigong is an physical movement practice that activates and unlocks the body’s potential to heal itself. I teach Wu Ming Qigong. It is one of the most powerful healing modalities used to create better body & mind balance. When Qigong is practiced consistently it can help to balance the mind-body connection, resolve physical and emotional issues, and even deepen one’s connection to nature.
With its deep impact on the body’s energy, Qigong has been used for hundreds of years as a foundation for healing. Practice allows energy to be stimulated at a cellular level as deep physical changes are initiated. In fact, people are often stunned by unexpected shifts in their health and emotional states, especially when the outcome was not part of their primary focus for the practice. Once the body’s energetic wisdom is stimulated the possibilities are endless.
From a natural healing perspective, a full moon represents a powerful energy which unites every living being on Earth. The full moon is Nature’s way of achieving better balance for our physical and emotional well-being. A Super Moon takes place when a full moon is near its closest approach to Earth. This means that the healing power of the full moon is intensified during a Super Moon.
The moon relates to the water element and the winter season, which makes this event especially powerful. So in the days surrounding the March Super Moon, embrace the essence of the water element – be peaceful, sit quietly and rest, and stay warm. Please take time to observe this incredible Super Moon on March 9th and stand in the healing power that fills the sky.
Winter is drawing to a close, but cold temperatures are still around. Do you want to play outside or stay inside in your warm pajamas?
When winter arrives, Nature begins to prepare for the cold – trees lose their leaves & birds fly south. Cold temperatures slow everything down. Nature enters a period of hibernation in order to have enough energy for Spring growth. Our bodies follow the same path as nature. We must rest in Winter so our energy can emerge healthy and strong in Spring.
Spring begins in the midst of what we consider Winter. Think about the Daffodils popping their heads out of the ground. The temperature is still cold, yet a flower has bloomed. Energy has already pushed upward and outward to create new life. Within you, there is the same energy moving up and outward.
Deep imbalances are often seen during these extreme shifts in temperature as physical and emotional symptoms. Discover how to maintain balance and create deep health during seasonal times of transition by practicing Qigong and incorporating simple healthy habits.
