Welcoming Yin time into the next phase of winter
In our Chi Gong teaching approach, with every flow, we are invoking a connection with our teachers’ teachers’ teachers… a long time line of respect, devotion. and gratitude.
This image comes to us from a great distance – time- and place-wise. This woodcut depicts the practice of a master opening the flow of the conception vessel, the river of yin energy in the front of our body. This woodcut has been identified to belong to the Ming Dynasty in China (1300-1600 AD). It is so inspiring to reach through time and space and connect with beings who passed this knowledge and it is humbling to think that we receive this wisdom and support its transmission into the future.
In the Chinese calendar, the highest yin period occurs around the winter solstice. Yin is the receiving aspect of our energy fields; in its absence or emptiness of chi, this season is a most receptive, transformative, and creative space, a time when we can extend our arms and gather what we need from the universe, the field of divinity, that we all are interconnected in profound ways. Bring in the light to the womb of your creativity to birth in 2016.
This master and teacher is in us when we open our flows and our gratitude to the teachings. I want to thank our teacher, Kay Hutchinson, for her compassionate and deeply connected transmissions to the roots of the chi gong ancestral tree. Thank you Kay!!!
Our fundraising campaign is still on. Would you take a second to donate?
We would be infinitely grateful.
With deep gratitude from our soul to yours.
El Tule Institute was created in October 2012 by Dr. Martha Perez, with over 27 years experience as an educator and eco focused life coach via Haitian drumming and dance spiritual traditions.
This collaborative center has evolved from the vision of a brick and mortar physical space to a virtual space for workshops, collaborative projects, educational presentations and technical art that encompasses music, movement, mindfulness, visual art, and a combination of modalities creating synthesis in new ways of expression. This shift in focus is in line with global changes resulting from the Covid 19 pandemic and need for social distancing.
