Spring Expansion Workshop with James Foulkes

As the days become warmer and brighter, nature rouses from her winter slumber and looks ahead to the new growth of Spring. This is the season to plant seeds for a future harvest and determine our direction and action for the coming expansive months. Focused intent enhances our ability to envision possibilities and weave our dreams.

These seasonal workshops offer an opportunity to harmonise your body/mind with the cyclic rhythm of the seasons. Spring is the most potent season for cleansing and detoxification and associated with the Wood Element in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this workshop we are to focus on rejuvenating and invigorating the Organs and Meridians (energy channels) of the Wood Element – the Liver and Gall Bladder – and the transformation of their negative emotional characteristics…Anger and Frustration to Acceptance and Kindness.

The Wood energy of Spring is an expression of life and growth at its strongest. To balance the Yin nature of the gentle cleansing stretches and breathwork, we will explore a variety of dynamic sequences – expansive and opening movements with a vigorous and stimulating approach; embodying a surge of rising energy like the dandelion whose growing edge can burst through concrete if it must.
