I’ve been a student all my life. When the opportunity first showed up a few years ago to start being a teacher, my inner voice shouted, “But I’m not ready!”
Turns out, I really was ready. That was one of many surprises along the way.
The most surprising thing I discovered about teaching was this: I was still learning.
In fact, I often learn more from my students when I’m teaching than I did when I was purely a student.
It was a question from a student that got me looking into herbal ways to cope with depression. That information was vital when I was dealing with the aftermath of deaths in my family.
Because I practice Energy Medicine, a lot of people ask me how to “fix” things.
The thing is, I can’t fix anything. However, I can teach you how to fix yourself.
And I can recommend two methods to get your energy flowing freely and keep your body, mind and spirit in balance.
QiGong (pronounced chee gong) is a Chinese “moving meditation” and a gentle, transformative practice to improve flexibility, strength and confidence.
Jin Shin Jyutsu (pronounced gin shin JUTE sue) uses light touch on acupressure points on your body to help relieve pain and stress by balancing and harmonizing your energy flow.
JSJ has been known to improve chronic conditions that didn't respond to conventional treatment.
Here are two opportunities coming up next week:
On Monday, February 17, a new 10 am QiGong class is starting at the Decatur Healing Arts ANNEX, 619B East College Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030. We will focus on internal organ health. We’ll also integrate QiGong and Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help to keep your Qi flowing and your body in balance.
There is room for a couple more students. Email me if you’re interested.
On Tuesday evening, February 18, I’m presenting an Introduction to Self-help Jin Shin Jyutsu from 7-8:30 pm at Antlers & Wings, 245 E Trinity Place #1210, Decatur, GA 30030. You will learn how to harmonize your body pathways using your hands as “jumper cables.”
Find out more and register for the class here.
I hope to see you at one or both of these events. In the meantime, here’s a simple Jin Shin Jyutsu exercise to help you find harmony when you’re angry. I call it “Putting your middle finger to good use.”
Here’s to health and harmony!
