Wild Edibles Walk
Friday, 11am-1pm, EarthWays, Bending Tree
We are surrounded by a plethora of medcines and wild foods every day. During this walk-shop we’ll find and learn about some of the plants on the land and Camp Timber Trails and talk about identification techniques. We will also discuss sustainable harvesting and re-generative life style. As we go we’ll take time to listen to plants and learn to speak their language.
Chinese Five Elements For Healing And Chi Kung
Saturday, 11:30am-1pm, EarthWays, Bending Tree
The Chinese Five Elements are a tool that we can use to interpret and understand human health and the world around us. In this workshop we will explore the Chinese Five Element Theory through interactive lecture and Qi Gong. We will learn how to observe the Five Elements in our daily lives and how they can be utilized to guide us along our path. Other aspects of this workshop include, balancing human health conditions with the five elements, the elements of healing plants and five element permaculture: how to use the five elements for design.
Intro to Tai Chi
Sunday, 3-5pm, Yoga Beach
Tai Chi is a great way to stay healthy and offers a wonderful life philosophy. In this workshop we’ll learn some basic techniques for unlocking the flow of energy in our bodies. We’ll go over a small Tai Chi set and play with partner drills such as internal push hands and sticky hands!
We’ll cultivate chi together while becoming deeply rooted and connected with momma earth!
I look forward to seeing you there and practicing together!
