Spring is here

This time of year we see lots of images of rabbits and decorative eggs which are associated with ancient Springtime festivals to the goddess Ēostre [pictured above]- where the name Easter comes from. 

So inspired, there are several Women's Qigong and Jade Egg workshops scheduled this season.
On the full moon, April 28 there is a free intro to Women's Qigong and Jade Egg just before the NuDan Womens Internal Alchemy Workshop where I will
 share teachings from Women's Nu Dan (Internal Alchemy) retreat I attended led by Master Liu He (Jade Woman Qigong).
Sunday, May 6 I am co-teaching an in-depth Jade Egg Workshop with Francoise Ginsberg at her Goddess Lounge in La Jolla.
Tri-City Recreation and Wellness Center in Carlsbad invited me to teach a Women's Qigong Workshop "Ancient Secrets of Feminine Vitality" as part of their Mothers Day programming on Saturday May 12.

We are so fortunate my teacher, Louis Komjathy a scholar and prolific writer about Daoism teaching at USD & Qigong teacher, leads a Spring/Summer Daoist retreat at Hidden Pine, Sunday May 5 the first of day summer according to the Chinese classical calendar. Qigong is rooted in Yangsheng "Nourishing Life", the Daoist longevity practice which we will experience at this retreat through meditation, movement & wisdom. He is even cooking us a healthy vegetarian lunch following the dietetics of the season! 

Every Spring at the last Saturday of the month, World Tai Chi Qigong Day is celebrated, where in each time zone around people simultaneously practice Taii Chi and Qigong. Doing our part, please join us at Hidden Pine April 28 10 - 11 AM for a Free Intro to Qigong and group class. All are welcome whether beginner or long time practionner.
Details on all these events below.

And that brings us into SUMMER!!! with scheduled dates for Summer Solstice practice, as well as Reyna and my first joint retreat at Hidden Pine.

Master Yuantong Liu returns to San Diego in July:
 July 5 - 9 for QiCorp Workshop & teacher training
July 10 - 15 QiFast Nourish Retreat. 
In preparation for his visit Reyna Lerma is offering a series of classes and workshops including a QiCore Workshop at Hidden Pine on May 19
If you are interested in this and teachers training, please contact Reyna.

 Enjoy the power of the earth renewed and rejuvenation of life enhancing practice of Qigong.
