What is Shiatsu? A Workshop with Julie Moore
Shiatsu massage is a wonderful form of deeply centering touch that provides an energy balancing experience. It is grounded in Eastern healing philosophies and methods that have been practiced for thousands of years, not your chair in the mall!. In a nutshell, Shiatsu is Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture) translated into bodywork. In it, the flow of energy (Qi) throughout the body is stimulated to encourage the body's own healing capabilities, maintaining health, stamina, and vitality in the body, strengthening the internal organs and preventing energy from getting blocked. By experiencing Shiatsu on a consistent basis, the mind and body naturally begin to recognize how balanced feels. One develops the self awareness necessary to sense and understand your own energy, find and maintain a sense of harmony and peace, thereby becoming the master of your own health.

In this workshop, Julie Moore will introduce to you the basics of Chinese medicine, which includes the 5 Element Theory and the 12 meridians and their primary functions. You will receive handouts to follow along with and take home. After this explanation, Julie will then demonstrate how Shiatsu is performed. You will have an opportunity for Q and A. Julie will also teach you a series of simple basic stretches and self care that you can easily do on your own that will enhance the flow of Qi through all 12 of the meridians you will have just learned about. Included in the handouts will be some very basic dietary information that can also help you keep your diet balanced within the 5 Element Theory.

Julie Moore has been practicing Shiatsu for 20 years and has studied with the Japanese Master Waturo Ohashi of the Ohashiatsu Institute and his protege Matthew Sweigart of Zen Shiatsu in Chicago, Il. Julie is also a Reiki Master under the tutelage of the internationally renowned Reiki teacher and author, Frans Steine. Her main practice is in Yellow Springs, Ohio. She has been a part of The Reiki Center in Columbus for the past 7 years and has recently expanded into the Greater Cincinnati area and is a part of the Bliss Heart Mind and Body Collective of Hyde Park. Julie's area of expertise is in emotional healing and helping her clients form a greater sense of self awareness by unlocking their subconscious and helping them to recognize self-sabotaging thought patterns and spiritual deficiencies that lead to physical, mental and emotional stressors which ultimately manifest as maladies. By attending the workshop, you will receive a $20 discount on your first scheduled treatment with Julie.

The extraordinary vessels help us to explore our relationship to ourselves and to the world around us.The Extraordinary Vessels access primordial fields of energy within us, and this effect is heightened during a group treatment where everyone is experiencing the same treatment simultaneously. Each participant receives the identical four acupuncture points to access one of the eight extraordinary vessels.

This event is suitable to people of all ability levels. Please bring a yoga mat for the gentle yoga portion of the program and we will also lay on the mats for the shared group acupuncture treatment at the end.

Living with Stones & Crystals in the 21st Century with DAK
Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 6:30 PM - 8PM
DAK has been consciously on a spiritual path since 1976. Egyptology and Patrick Flannagin's pyramid energy information were his first interests. Shortly after the Harmonic Convergence in August of 1987, he had a vision that he should provide stone tools for healing. He became interested in the Marcel Vogel methods, was inducted into the teaching Wolf Clan by Grandmother Twyla Neitsch of the Seneca Nation in 1990, and continues to collect and distribute stones wherever he is drawn.

This workshop is an introduction to using stone energies in our living and working environments, aiding in the protection from detrimental electromagnetics, aiding the health of our physical, mental and emotional bodies, and aiding the raising of our consciousness.

DAK will explain how these energies work, how to select and care for stones, how to clear and program crystals, and how to best use stones and crystals of all sizes.

Door opens at 6:30pm and workshop starts at 7pm
