A Few Words About Ancient Chinese Medicine - Thai Chi

Therapists in all ancient traditions around the world used the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, air - wood, ether – metal) to decipher the human organism. In the following seminar, the trainee will learn how via specific exercises - movements - practical - sounds and herbs, depending on the season of the year he/she may nourish or stimulate parts of himself/herself which are poorer in one or more of these five elements, and determine its vitality and health.

In the Retreat we will learn:

~ Analysis of the ancient symbols and their correlation with the human energy body.
Uncompromising 5 Elements.
~Energy anatomy: We will learn how energy moves within the human body, energy channels, and which organs it corresponds to.
~ Annual & Daily Clock: Seasons' Changing and its effect on humans.
~ Uranium Yin-Yang:  In the human body, five elements are expressed through specific organs and create the five entities or souls that exist within the human body. We will dwell more on the element of Earth, which is the time.
~ Physical exercises (Chi Kung & Tai Chi), breaths, herbs-food & daily activities compatible and favorable with the summer and autumn actions.
~ Healing sounds: A hidden insight from the Far East monasteries.
~ Anti-aging practices and regeneration of our potential through the practice of inner smile.
~ Eliminating internal dysfunctions and emotional negativity through an ancient practice.
We will also learn how we find our Ayurvedic type and the choices we can make depending on it, in nutrition, movement, environment, lifestyle, way of thinking (Hippocrates' healing agents to live lives full of awareness, happiness and creation).
