The Water Element Winter time finds us deep in the water element, that mysterious time of transformation, rest, gestation and regeneration. The seeds are asleep buried deep in the earth preparing for the next cycle of growth, the sap is resting deep in the roots of the Maple trees. During this season, we learn how to tap into the wisdom of rest and deep listening to increase our overall strength, to move in alignment with the season as well as to tap into our great reserves of creative potential. We will explore the concept of the Zhi, the Traditional Chinese Medicine spirt aspect of the Water Element and how it relates to steadiness of energy levels, will power, feeling of safety and the mysterious meeting place between the forces of life and death.
Alchemical Yoga, invites us into relationship with the intuitive wisdom held within our physical and emotional being and in the regenerative cycles of nature. Whether we experience shoulder tension, back pain, tightness in the hips, anxiety, or knots in our stomach, tension can be full of creative potential which is waiting to be listened to. This practice invites us to change our relationship with difficult sensations. With compassionate inquiry, we will learn to pay attention to the root of holding patterns and ultimately to align with our bodies and emotions as our allies in life. Through a mindful consideration of both our inner landscape and outer environment; including the moon phase and the season, Living Maps Alchemical Yoga, explores the energetic maps of the body from the Yogic Chakra system, the Traditional Chinese Medicine Meridian system and the Five Elements seasonal cycle and wheel of regeneration. Through the practice of Traditional Yoga postures, Pranayama, Visualization, Meridian and Acupressure stimulation and compassionate listening, we will discover where we hold our energy into patterns of tension, and deepen understanding of our own natural energetic and creative cycles and how they connect to the larger picture.
