Stop the flow of words
Open the window of your heart
And let the spirit speak.
Medicine Body Workshop is based on somatic movement and TCM to experience our body and mind in the present moment with all our senses, exploring the wisdom of energy medicine and creation.
This is an opportunity to dive into a process of direct feeling, sensing, and perceiving through heart energy, where we can bridge to a deeper sense of creation and healing within.
In TCM, the heart belongs to the fire (light) element. Heart energy is an engine, pulsing with the breath of life to communicate between the mind and the body, guiding one’s life purpose by manifesting dreams, expressing oneself, and connecting to consciousness and the higher self.
In our soma, heart energy radiates in our eyes and materialises through our hands. Its quality is warm, joyful, transformative, and transcendental.
The spirit of the heart is called “Shen,” which means inspiration, insight, awareness, and compassion.
When Shen is balanced, we are connected to clear speech and vision, good sleep patterns, self-expression, and awareness. When unbalanced, we feel cloudy thinking, a lack of eye contact and confidence, hyper-vigilance and paranoia, trouble relating to others, panic, and disturbed sleep patterns.
In the workshop, we will explore heart energy by working with a sense of touch, vision, and silence, experiencing it through felt senses. We will open a process of cultivating heart wisdom, such as
We will work with slow movement, sensory practice, drawing, and writing to translate our inquiry process, and work as a group and in a partnering format to support each other’s journey.
