The Interconnection of Happiness ~ Our Lives Depend On It

I went to one of my morning spots in the backyard garden to begin my daily Qigong practice. This spot is in a patch of grass surrounded by our magenta pink rose bushes, two strawberry patches, one of our grandmother apple trees, three vegetable garden beds and our beautiful towering red maple tree with its rustling leaves in the early morning breeze. Usually at this hour, I enjoy the warmth of the early morning sun, but not today. It was already hot. The day before was “only” 88 degrees but the sun’s intensity, along with my looming dread for the unprecedented heat wave coming to the Pacific Northwest, even as I stood in the cooling waters of our local Tolt River, made it that much stronger. 

Earthgym: Primal Strength & Play

In this 8-part series, join Earthgym specialist and Qigong teacher Karen Joy Fletcher and Natural Movement teacher and Internal Martial Arts expert Nate Summers on a journey into natural strength, play, and power. We will explore natural strength, training with sticks and stones, wild movement, playfulness, spontaneity, and more! Between the two of us we have over 40 years experience teaching these modalities. And it’s SOOO FUN!! Classes start June 11!
