Dearest friends, I hope you are soaking in the summer's vibrance. As an acupuncturist, during this season, I think about the sun's nature and its healing capabilities. In Chinese medicine philosophy, the summer is governed by the element of Fire and associated with the heart channel, its essence and interrelated fire channels: the small intestine, pericardium and triple burner.
Connect with spring energy - imagine your body with the same growth and vitality of the cherry blossoms
Peony invites you to a Gyrokinesis, Acupuncture and Sound experience offered by Paige Barnes and Maria Scherer Wilson. The intention of the workshop is to connect with the spring governed by the element of wood. In Chinese medicine the wood element opens you to the direction and purpose of your life, your imagination and passion and greater capacity to 'go with the flow.'

I began the process to earn an acupuncture degree from Bastyr University. I started taking prerequisite courses at Shoreline Community College - my first class being Chemistry 101. After spending the majority of my life as a dance maker, performer and Gyrotonic instructor, sitting and learning about Western and Traditional Chinese medicine altered my state of being and perception of the world.
