Earthgym ~ The Power of Sticks & Stones – Saturday 4/13

Come play and connect with our Earth with simple Earth tools – sticks and stones! Earthgym taps into our childhood passions of using outdoor play to learn from life. It’s a movement way of learning from our habitat. Sticks and stones are powerful, alchemical training tools that awaken and strengthen our bodies and open doorways to aliveness, creativity & joy. From these states of being, the Earth’s immense Qi comes pouring into our biggest musing tool, our body. It’s super fun and a great addition to one’s yoga, martial arts, dance or other movement practices. Join us for this 1/2 day workshop on Saturday April 13, 2019 from 2:30 – 5pm at Two Rivers Yoga Studio in Carnation, WA.

The Power of Play & the Wonder of Wandering ~ Women of Wisdom Conference 2/16

Do you miss play in your life? Play is as essential for our wellbeing as sleep and in a culture that places high value on busy-ness and “productivity”, time for play, wonder and wandering are lost arts. Yet, these things, especially when done outdoors, fill our body with happy feelings, the abundant Qi of Nature, and the sense of awe and enchantment we were born with. They are keys to our creativity, aliveness and our soul’s purpose. Through simple qigong, outdoor play and a culminating quest , a solo “wonder wander” (with its roots in Chinese medicine), we will reclaim the power, vitality and joy innate to us all! Sat 2/16 from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.
