NOURISHING EXPRESSION: A COLLABORATION OF ENERGETIC FORCES
Fluid Psoas, Primal Gestures & Archetypal Qigong
A 2-day ZOOM workshop with Liz Koch and Sarah Byrden
November 12 &13- 9:00 am- 1:30 pm MST (note: we will have turned our clocks back in the US)
In this workshop, we will be tending specifically to the season and cycle of Autumn and the Metal Element in our bodies and preparing the ground for our passage into Winter and the Water Element, a time for profound replenishment, incubation and rest.
The confluence of our two bodies of work creates a unique alchemy and synergy. Together they touch, awaken, and nourish a deep longed for place, returning us to the truth of our fluid form, to the mystery, miracle, and intelligence of our human life. Weaving a thread back into the web of life you will leave this workshop with greater coherence, resilience, and sustenance having touched and played in the field of both origin and possibility.
When perceived through the living matrix of embryology, our Psoas becomes smart tissue, growing out of a vibrant, intelligent midline ~ the central axis. A Primal NeuroCore, Psoas is rooting tissue that emerges from the very core of our being and grounds us into the gravitational energies of life on earth. When reframed, healthy psoas is fluid juicy tissue ~ dynamically expressive and soulfully responsive.
The expression and exploration of Archetypal Qigong is a somatic participation in medicinal gestures that offer us maps, mirrors and potent energetic medicine. Through the forms we literally move our way into a conversation with the wisdom, resources, and deep memory of the archetypal world of patterns and stories that hold keys to our potential, integration, and creative power. Each form holds a different medicine. What is it to inhabit and cultivate patterns of surrender, protection, courage, hope, trust, eros, deep yin power, and yang beauty? Archetypal Qigong helps us meet the ever-evolving world by shifting us from mere ideals into a felt-sense inhabitance of life’s vital energies.
