Heart of Summer

Heart of Summer: A Focus on the Heart & Kidney Meridians with Jackie Szabo & Dr. Allison Creech

Sunday August 23rd 2-415pm $65 ($40 for teachers & trades) 10% off for members

CLICK HERE (under workshops)

Using acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, asana (yoga postures), guided meditation & other energy release techniques- with a specific focus on the heart and kidney meridians- we’ll support you as you release blocks in these systems in order to achieve balance and harmony through your whole body. The Heart and Kidney meridians are associated with the emotions of love and fear in Chinese medicine and they work together to vitalize and coordinate your experience in life.

Heart Meridian– joy & love. A balanced heart meridian enables the ability to both give and receive love and experience joy.  The Fire of the heart is invigorating- it promotes mind-body health and coordinates the functioning of all other systems in the body.

Kidney Meridian- energy & essence.  The kidney represents the “gate of life” and provides the energy for all of the other meridians.  It is represented by the Water element and it nourishes, fuels, and cools the body.  When the  kidney meridian is balanced, we move with strength and fluidity and are grounded in our being.

Balancing these two opposites with this type of work will create a deeper sense of love and joy while keeping both feet firmly planted on the ground. You will leave feeling energized, clear, focused, open and light.

yoga asana/pranayama + acupuncture + craniosacral therapy + guided meditation
The energy of spring is about growth, action, and moving forward with clarity and purpose. It is represented by the element of Wood and is held in the body’s Liver and Gallbladder meridians. When Wood energy is balanced, you have clear vision and feel empowered and energized to reach your goals.

The Liver is the most important organ for the movement of Qi and Blood in the body, and it is negatively impacted by anger and other unexpressed emotions. If you are irritable or easily stressed out then there’s a good chance your liver qi is out of balance. The energy of the Gall Bladder meridian has to do with courage, decision-making, and determination. It also supports muscular strength and vitality in the body. Both meridians play a key role in digestion, with specific emphasis on detoxification and the quality of cellular nutrition we are able to receive.

The energy of Spring stimulates movement and provides an opportunity to move forward from a point of harmony, creativity, and insight. We will work with the seasonal energy and the Yin/Yang of the meridian systems to help remove blocks and stimulate the free flow of Qi in your body. You will leave feeling energized, relaxed, and inspired for the season ahead.
