  • Winter Solstice Taoist Meditation

    Winter Solstice Taoist Meditation

    £15.00

    Join us virtually on Zoom for an evening of nourishing breath work, Taoist meditation and passive qigong on the winter solstice 2022.  Learn relaxing meditation techniques using the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine to foster a calm state, slow the heart rate and settle the nervous system. Dip into the world of Taoist practices for health, happiness and longevity.

    In the Chinese calendar this is the time of absolute yin, known as Dong Zhi, with the shortest day and the longest night in the year. The yin yang symbol is a visual representation of the Chinese calendar, depicting the season changes. At the winter solstice the sun moves to the most southerly position of -23.5 degrees. It is a time of rebirth, where the days after begin to slowly lighten as we move forward into the winter season.

    In Chinese culture Dong Zhi is a time for festivities, family gatherings and a time for the farmers to prepare food for the upcoming cold winter weather.  As the winter solstice is the turning point, when the shortest day is left behind, this is seen as a time for optimism and celebration.  Join my virtual Tai Chi and Qigong community to celebrate this time of yin, optimism and looking forward.
