An afternoon to shake off winter and move in the direction of fresh possibilities
Just as the crocuses push through the frozen earth we too will emerge from our winter’s slumber come springtime. Join Daniel Orlansky and acupuncturists Lynda Danzig and Ilana Margalit for a two-hour Spring Equinox workshop where we will shake off winter and move the energy in the direction of fresh possibilities. In Chinese medicine, spring is the wood element, ruled by the liver and gallbladder meridians. By allowing the wood element to flow through us, we acquire flexibility, and the clarity of vision to see our true direction.
Beginning with gentle breath work, meridian stretching and Qigong, students will finish in a restorative yoga position to receive an ear acupuncture treatment specifically designed to enhance the wood element, helping us grow to our full potential by balancing our energies.
The ear or auricular acupuncture treatment will last about 20–25 minutes. Ear acupuncture is based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem of the entire body. This idea originates from Ancient Chinese texts, and was developed more fully in the 1950s by Dr. Paul Nogier of France. The treatment offered at this workshop will use the points that calm the nervous system (Point Zero), relax the mind (Spirit Gate), and support emotional balance (the Auricular Liver Point).
This is the perfect way to spend a relaxing and nourishing Sat. afternoon. Bring family and friends.
