Qigong for the Seasons: Spring Qigong
February 13–15, 2015
We are part of nature. When the energy changes in nature, it changes within us as well. If we wish to be naturally healthy we must stay in harmony with seasonal changes. Qigong for the Seasons is based on the Five Phase paradigm, an enlightened program for comprehensive health care throughout the year. Each class consists of qigong exercises, meditations, and dietary guidelines.
Spring Qigong focuses on liver health, qi enhancement, and cultivating kindness. This tumultuous season has rapidly changing energy. To stay in harmony with those changes we need to enliven the muscles and joints, release stagnant blood, and temper an overactive mind. You will learn qigong exercises for spinal flexibility, liver detoxification, and nurturing the Rising Yang Qi. Our discussions and meditations will focus on the virtue of kindness and its relationship to anger vitally important in spring. Suggestions for healthy foods and herbs for the liver will complete this exciting and comprehensive retreat for better health this season.
Ronald Davis, DC. LAc. Dipl Acu (NCCAOM) has dedicated thirty years to helping people discover their optimal state of well being based on physical integrity, mental clarity and nutritional support. As a chiropractor, he understands the critical interrelationship of physical form, physiological function and visceral health. As an acupuncturist, he knows that optimal well being depends on the essential flow of vital energy and blood throughout the body/mind. The integration of this knowledge with his extensive practice in medical qigong, meditation, and Chinese medicine has led to the development of a series of classes called “Qigong Through The Seasons” which is a comprehensive program of qigong, meditation and dietary guidelines that allows one to be healthy all year long. Dr. Davis is the creator of the popular CD, Guided Meditations For Summer, and is the author of the forthcoming book, Qigong Through the Seasons. thehealthmovement.com
