Spend a day experiencing an element with all senses

Using the Five Elements to Restore Health and Inner Balance

For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has taught us to live a life in harmony with nature and the five elements: a life following the flow of the seasons and in contact with life energy. The theory of the five elements is a dynamic and fascinating model of the world. The more I study it, the more compelling I find it.

How can I integrate the theory of the five elements into my everyday life and strengthen my natural rhythm?
The theory links each element to feelings, emotions, organs and meridians (energy pathways in the body). These deeply affect the flow of energy in our body. Traditional Chinese Medicine sees them as both important illness factors and strong healing powers.

In an intimate group, you’ll learn about the five elements theory, on which shiatsu is based. The seminar series is unique in that it introduces you to each element in depth and allows you to experience the five elements with all senses. No previous knowledge needed.

Seminars will be held in the respective seasons and therefore present a wonderful occasion to welcome each season’s individual energy.

Sunday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

– meridian stretching exercises
– shiatsu and qigong exercises
– small body journey / meditation
– self-massage
– cooking and eating according to the five elements

– €350 for all five element seminars

Live in each season as it passes;
breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit,
and resign yourself to the influence of each.
Let them be your only diet drink and botanical medicines.
