You'll learn valuable Taoist Medical Qigong self-care methods and healing wisdom to assist your personal growth, and help create sustainable well-being. March 20 is the vernal equinox, one of two points in the year when the Yin darkness of night is in balance with the Yang light of day.
In nature, the cold of winter (Yin-Water) is moving toward the heat of summer (Yang-Fire). Earth is reawakening to the warm moist growing power of spring in abundance. In terms of Women's Inner Alchemy, this is a special time for women to be open, gather qi from nature, and receive a personal boost of aliveness.

art and practice of good communication affects our everyday life – how we
relate with others and how we are effective in our work and in our personal

interactive and lively evening workshop, we will practice some key communication skills
