Chinese Medicine Series: Living in Harmony with the Four Seasons - Spring
Do you ever wonder:
- Why do I feel good in certain seasons of the year and sick in other seasons?
- Why is my mood and energy affected by the weather and my environment so much?
- What does Chinese Medicine wisdom teach about health in relation to the four seasons?
- Can I better prepare myself for the changes in the seasons so that I would feel healthier?
In the 4 part Chinese Medicine series, we will discuss about why we get sick and how to prevent illnesses by being proactive in improving our vital energy (Qi) to support our Spirit (Shen) through the cultivation of our essence (Jing). Lectures will cover the topics of:
- What to be aware of and to avoid in each season
- Emotional and mental blocks that exist during each season
- Seasonal foods in Chinese Medicine
- Qi gong exercises to improve our Qi circulation
- Developing a healthy mind and attitude towards each season.
