THE THREE TREASURES
When we walk in harmony between Heaven and Earth, we harvest the Three Treasures: loving relationships, prosperity and long life.
In this rich, day long experience, we'll nourish body, mind and spirit as we reclaim our ancient heritage and transfuse our city lives with sacred mystery and wonder. Expect to return to your life feeling truly alive, in touch and in tune with Holy Mother Universe, armed with the knowledge as well as many easy but highly effective practices to maintain that connection for Life.
Sacred Human - Eight Treasures Elixir Light Qigong
Our day begins with gentle chi energy cultivation exercise. Practiced in China for over 5000 years, Qigong movements increase vital life force and strengthen the body's natural healing abilities. This simple routine of standing stretches has long been known to increase wisdom, improve judgement, strengthen the ability to give and receive love, fortify courage and encourage the ability to act.

Sacred Sky - Celestial Meditations
As our afternoon wanes and the magical stillness of dusk approaches, we'll explore how our neighboring celestial bodies directly interact with our physical, mental and subtle spiritual energy to create health, awaken happiness and fulfill our human potential. Learn the unique ways that planets and star systems in our solar system interface with each other to directly shape our life experiences in personal and collective ways. Discover ancient methods for revitalizing the body, calming the mind, enlivening and protecting the spirit, by aligning ourselves with the generous presence of the healing celestial spheres.
Please bring a small, beloved object or two from nature to adorn our sacred learning circle.
