Seasonal Qigong Workshop for the Spleen and Stomach

Sunday 9 September, Nano Nagle Birthplace, Ballygriffin

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine:

When life-force energy (Qi) flows freely throughout your body, which 

includes the organs, acu-meridians, and all the five elements, then the body is in balance. Anger, over-excitement, emotional stress, self pity, deep grief and fear, such negative emotions, can slow down or even block our Qi energy. In this case, one should seek to recover the balance of yin and yang (energies). It’s like a battery in a torch, if there is a bad connection between the positive and negative poles, the power doesn’t flow continuously, the light flickers and is weakened. Changes in the seasons affect our Qi (or “life Force Energy”), as well as our organs, emotions, and spirit in different Ways. The Qigong exercises in this workshop are designed to help adjust and balance our Qi energy in order to harmonise our body-mind with the seasonal change from summer to late summer/early start of autumn (Indian summer). This in turn, sets us up for a healthy autumn as well as having a grounded well-being throughout the “Indian summer”.

Image of spleen's locationOur spleen energetically controls the digestion and intake of foods consumed. As the stomach receives and digests food, the spleen transports the food essence.

It also plays a role in muscle strength, blood production, and water metabolism.

The healing sounds meditation for the Spleen and Stomach clear excess heat in the channels and organs, cooling the organ and body.

Emotionally this meditation releases unfavourable feelings (like worry), that may be embedded in our psyche. Clearing negative emotions allow the natural virtues connected to these organs and their season be expressed. E.g. Openness, as in being open to the spontaneity of life. Not how you feel life should treat you, but living in the natural reality of the present moment. This is living in the Dao.

There will be info on what foods physically nourish the spleen and stomach.
