Come Practice Together!

 It seems that the days are going by fast as we ride this new year, don’t you think?

How have you been taking care of yourself? Did you have a chance to take an inventory of your life and start adding new and positive commitments to your own personal growth (mentally, physically, energetically, and spiritually)?

Sometimes thinking of what we would love to add to our lives at the beginning of each new year seems easier compared to the actual steps and actions we might need to take to get to the vision of ourselves we have for the future. That’s why when we join a practice group, there is a greater chance of us really “sticking” with the plan! We feel more inspired and pushed to give a little more of ourselves than if we were to get started alone. That happens because of the increased energy around intention in a group.

I understand that maybe not all of our community practices at Corpo e Alma Healing might be your cup of tea. However, if you haven’t tried any of them yet, I encourage you to give it a chance. A group practice of any form of energy healing and meditation magnifies the energy in the matrix of all individuals that are practicing together. It can form an energy field, if you will, of protection, strength, healing, and above all, unconditional love.

5 Element Healing Movements – Spring Forest Qigong

 

I will keep sending you our schedule for classes and any new special workshop I might be offering. Keep an eye on your emails. In Feb I will do a workshop (about 2 hours) on the opening of the heart and liver meridians, with guided sound meditation (Jonathan Goldman) and sound bath. All classes are online via zoom. If you would like to join us, please text me or email me (maria@corpoealmahealing.com) so I can send you the link.

Happy Holidays

This year of 2020 will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most challenging years for humankind in the modern era. A year when humans had to stop, rethink their way of living, their way of treating each other, their way of treating themselves, their way of treating the Earth. Some of us pondered, for the very first time, about unhealthy patterns in families, in communities, in societies, in countries. Wounds became more apparent and truly painful for many. There is a great read about that “Feelings buried alive never die…” by Karol K. Truman. And for so many of us on Earth the grief and sorrow have been really profound.

“…when you change your life, it isn’t to become the new you. It’s to become the real you- the one-of-a-kind diamond that will never exist again and can never be replaced. Everything that’s happened to you-all the choices you’ve made until now, all the ways you’ve tried to cope-it all matters; it’s all useful. You don’t have to throw everything out and start from scratch. Whatever you’ve done, it’s brought you this far, to this moment. The ultimate key to freedom is to keep becoming who you truly are.”  The Gift -12 Lessons to Save Your Life, by Edith Eger (a holocaust survivor).

The Age of Aquarius has begun! Let’s make 2021 the year we truly embrace with courage, determination, and strength all the challenges that may come our way! Let’s spread unconditional love and heal!

May the challenges be few, may our courage be as strong as never before, and may we keep reaching out to the tools from our toolbox: Qigong, meditation, prayer, mindful breathing, walking in nature, yoga, eating healthy, volunteering (whenever possible), TAT, and keep strengthening our inner energy.

I intend to be more present within our community offering more online classes, sound baths (I have the studio better equipped with professional microphones, lights, and incredible new crystal singing bowls that can make you transcend this world!) and private online sessions for Qigong healing and TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique) and when we have the ok from the state to reopen to offer energy massages again, I will! There were a few detours this year to care for the family, so it wasn’t possible to keep our practice consistent.

For those that have young kids or even teens that are interested in learning easy ways to get into meditation practices, and have better coping mechanisms, please get in touch with me. I have been offering a Mindfulness and Meditation class for kids (6-10 years old)-Finding the Magic Within- Tuesdays at 4 pm (Pacific Time).

I wish lots of love, peace and happiness to you and your loved ones.

Happy Holidays!

5 Element Healing Movement-Spring Forest QiGong

 

 

 

I have been introduced to Qigong practice several years ago. Spring Forest Qigong, in particular, enhanced all other forms of energy healing and movement I had learned over the years. Healing is a natural consequence of a regular practice. I was amazed by its simplicity and enormous power to move energy. So much so that I decided to complete all trainings to be officially a Practice Group Leader.

 

The simple act of bringing awareness to our bodies, these incredible “machines” created for us as a “vehicle for our awakening” (Buddha), is an act of self love and an act of love to our family and all those around us. The Chinese have known for thousands of years the secrets of the energy system that runs inside of our bodies, whether we are aware of them or not. They have known the wisdom of the 5 Elements in nature and their correlation to our internal organs. Nature and we and the whole Universe are not separate entities, we are connected in this matrix of energy. This is why each and every action taken in individual-level ripples, producing joy or sadness, happiness or sorrow, peace or chaos.

Master Chunyi Lin is the creator of Spring Forest Qigong. He is the author of the book “Born a Healer” ( I was born a healer. You were born a healer, too!) where he shares his amazing story of courage, healing, perseverance and unconditional love, and forgivingness (even for those who inflicted pain to him and his whole family during the Chinese Cultural Revolution and terrifying time under Mao Zedong’s regime). Master Lin’s mission with the creation of this Qigong technique, simple and very, very effective (I can attest that for sure and so many others too!) is “a healer in every home and a world without pain and suffering”. What an amazing mission, don’t you think?

Well, it is with great satisfaction that I will be offering the Spring Forest 5 Element Healing Qigong practice via zoom on a weekly basis and will share with you the incredible wisdom behind the practice and the intelligence of our inner Qi (life force, inner energy).

On this coming Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:30pm I invite you to a free Introductory class. Wear comfortable clothes, be well hydrated and be in a space where you won’t be interrupted for about 1 hour. Invite your friends or anybody that might need an “injection” of inspiration for his or her healing path or simply to feel more balanced emotionally, physically and spiritually. I can say so much about this practice, however the value is always on our own personal experience. Practiced in a group (even online) the energy is magnified, so we can feel the benefits even more.

Please,  send me a message via email:

maria@corpoealmahealing.com or via text (805)728-5573 if you would like to join us,

so I can send you the link to our zoom meeting. I might be able to do 10 mins of a calming sound bath to close our meeting. For the sound bath I suggest you use a pair of headphones to make the sound more powerful.

Looking forward to seeing you and guide you through a beautiful and strong experience!
