Introduction to Taoism, Five elements and Thai Massage in BERLIN
22nd – 26th November 2023
This course will be an introduction to Taoism and it’s influence on our healing when we live in accordance with the principals and laws of nature. Throughout the course we will learn about the therapeutic application of Thai Massage, in accordance with the five elements of Chinese Medicine. Each day we will focus on a different element and understand the internal organs, meridians, acu-points and practices associated with it and use Thai massage sequences to address imbalances there.
Water, Earth, Metal, Fire, and Wood make up the elemental system according to Chinese Medicine. We will explore the emotional body, pathological conditions, dietary nutrition & herbs, as well as go deep into elemental awareness with ceremony, meditation, movement, touch, qi gong and breath-work. In using the wisdom of the Tao with static and dynamic Thai massage, we can tonify and disperse energy, address deficiency and excess and harmonize the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.We will also focus on the energy centre around our abdomen and learn how to bring back core power and release built up toxicity in our internal organs. Our abdominal care is one of the key factors in exploring our deep healing journey and how to open the points around the naval for a global domino transformation for the rest of the body.
The course is open for everyone who is interested in deepening their knowledge and awareness of something that is greater than the physical body and for those who want to embrace this journey of self-healing in order to be present for others on the same path. Taoism is one of the most accessible gateways to the path of healing from within, as its complexity lies in the simplicity of the natural world around us. Come and join us if right now the social media matrix and industrialized consumerism is not helping you to evolve and become the best version of yourself, so that you may get back into balance and learn to live in today’s world with the ancient teaching principles of the Tao.
