5 Rhythms Energy Healing and Cooking Workshops


Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that we are surrounded by energy fields which help us achieve balance, health and harmony in our lives.

The basic principle  is that all things can be divided into 5 elements or phases: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.

Most of us are familiar with these elements as they relate to feng shui, acupuncture and chi gong, but the same principles are also applied to foods and physical healing.

Each element has a corresponding season, organ system in the body, color and taste and emotion associated with it.

Learning to eat according to the 5 elements can help us balance our energy, nourish particular organs and achieve optimal health.

 Once each season, I will be offering a comprehensive class on the corresponding element.

We will dive deeply into the ancient traditions of strengthening the organ systems associated with each element. We will use tools from Eastern medicine, energy medicine and spirituality in addition to food.

These classes are for you if:

You are seeking to deepen your knowledge of traditional cooking methods
