Please RSVP to save your spot https://qigongintensivechicago.eventbrite.com Join three teachers, who have devoted their lives to their passions, as we weave and combine our talents and skills in a day of movement, energy, devotion, and Tantric awareness, all designed to help us more fully step into our own empowered embodiment. First Peter Petersen brings his passion of a moving meditation from China called Sheng Zhen Qigong. For thousands of years people have captured the essence of these simple movements to maintain balance and to heal themselves mentally and physically. Qigong accelerates healing and has a positive clinically recognized effect on almost all physical symptoms. The Qigong movements helps heal the physical body and release stress of the mind. By moving your body, releasing trigger points, and stimulating your circulatory system, you literally become your own massage therapist. Simultaneously these movements help release negative emotions and memories that you no longer need and allow yourself to be much more present in your "now" so in a sense you become your own psychiatrist at the same time! Come learn how to build the foundation of being your own health advocate and enjoy emotional freedom and connection to all that is! Peter will then teach a style of movement that incorporates the dance of the 5 elements and Qigong flow merged as one. This experience will be guaranteed to put a spring in your step and a smile on your face! Next International teacher Eugene Hedlund brings his magic of Medicine Dance, which began his whole journey into a life well lived. In this special event. he will share this transformational practice of Tribal Tantra, where we discover those hidden gems of truth locked in our body/heart/mind/spirit and how we may give them breath, life and movement so that our true and authentic self may see and be seen. By embodying this ritual, we attune our body to tend toward our highest good while making space to step with clarity into what is next. Discover how the healing practice of Medicine Dance will help to melt some of the walls to giving and receiving that love within. Fall in love with yourself as the magic of your own intuitive spirit and higher self seduces you into a dance that could only happen once! Come as you are. All your ease, edge...dance in the body you have and take the permission to be expressed in your limitless self - ALL of you is welcome here. Finally let Monique Darling, workshop facilitator extraordinaire lead you on a journey of your senses How would you like to step into a world of acceptance, of sensation, a world where ALL of you is utterly and radically welcomed? How would it feel to be completely held, and have your deepest humanity plus your greatest divinity given a space to dance and to merge in sweet union? Monique brings years of devoted practice and teachings in the areas of acceptance, adoration, unconditional love (first of yourself, which then showers on all in your field), and sensuality/embodiment, (Giving yourself full permission of Heaven on earth in THIS moment, in THIS body). This will include a Puja that includes Tantric principles. A Puja is a prayer. In Tantra a prayer is a way of honoring and adoring the divine that dwells within each of us. The subtle sensual energies residing within our bodies are invoked, revered, and welcomed as honored guests at this feast of love. This puja will include sensual, and devotional connecting, not sexual. The entire event will be spent diving deeper into devotion, adoration, honoring the divine union between divinity and humanity, masculine and feminine, and especially sensuality and spirituality. Monique will lead you through partnered stations designed to take you through devotion, adoration, connection, and depth of embodied pleasure. In this unique experience you will find many opportunities to connect and enjoy other people's company throughout the day, but our intention is for you to walk away with a much deeper love for YOURSELF!
