Winter Solstice Workshop


Qigong & Meditation Live on Zoom

Join me virtually on Zoom for an evening of nourishing breath work, relaxing Qigong and stillness meditation on the winter solstice 2023. Learn relaxing movement and stillness techniques to foster a calm state and release physical tension. Dip into the world of internal cultivation 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.  The winter solstice is the turning point, when the shortest day comes and goes, a time to celebrate this time of yin, optimism and looking forward. Join my virtual Qigong gathering to celebrate the return of light.
