Harmonizing emotions with holistic methods of Chinese Medicine and psychology

 

Anger - restlessness - overthinking - sadness - fear

3 day learning and somatic experiencing workshop teaching you how to embrace yourself with loving connecting presence.

The framework of this workshop is the Five Element model, which is the basis of traditional Chinese medicine. Complementing the western linear thinking about health, Chinese medicine thinks more in patterns, systems and energy flows.
It is another way of understading our body and emotions and to learn how to become friends with the sensations and feelings we have.  

Illness does not occur as a thing separate from the rest of a person’s life. A human being is a system, and each symptom/illness is part of the wider ecology. 
Psychological symptom (such as anxiety) is part of the wider ecology of the person’s mind, including their metaprograms, values, life metaphors etc.

The Five elements model comes from the Taoist teachings. It applies to all natural systems and it teaches of the nature of energy conversion in the world around us and within us.
It gives a framework of understanding the flow of Qi within the human body and its mutual effect of the psyche. 

Emotion is E-motion, Energy in Motion. When we allow our emotions to be felt, The non-judgemental awareness and sensing of our emotions allow energy to move and transform, leading us towards health and our true potential. All the risen tensions can calm down once their cycle is finished. This helps our Autonomic Nervous System to regulate, our stress hormones to be in balance and brings us into homeostasis and health.

 

When we feel each emotion fully without making a story up about it, but simply allowing the somatic and emotional sensations to be felt, we find that every emotion can be transformed into something valuable. 

Emotional wealth comes from the wisdom of the experience, when we push down feelings we not only end up feeling terrible anyway, but also rob ourself of the important realizations that would shape and grow us into our fullest potential. Plus suppressed feelings by years may cause serious chronic diseases. 

We invite you to our 3 days workshop to learn the framework of the 5 elements and get useful tools to balance all five through body practices and conscious thinking and feeling. 

 

It is a learning and experience based workshop, where we dedicate half day to all five elements. 

For the mental processing we learn a bit about the element, then get somatic experience through movement; Tai Chi, Qigong, pilates, massage, we are going to learn acupressure points for self massage, 

 

 

and also on the last day we have a 4 hour breathwork workshop with cacao. 

With all five elements we learn about the connecting emotions and understand how they could be healthily transformed “recycled” for building material of a healthier you.

 

During the day we serve foods that is specifically designed by our star chef to support and balance the element we are immersing in. It includes, delicious welcome drinks, freshly made healthy snacks and dishes. During the design of the courses we considered most major food intolerances and special diets to keep it easy and safe and mouthwateringly enjoyable for everyone.
