GONG
1. a metal disc with a turned rim, giving a resonant note when struck*
2. to work or exercise**

Physically, the accumulation of gong refers to constant improvements in balance, coordination, agility, flexibility, sensitivity, and strength or power. Mentally and spiritually, the accumulation of gong refers to improved awareness and confidence, and constant advancements toward realizing tranquility of heart and mind.
~Master Yang Yang

Qi Gong is led by Christina. Just fresh from California and an 8 day Qi Gong Taiji intensive with Master Yang Yang from China and now New York, we will enter into the amazing world of Energy Exercise and Meditation.
This is the most powerful form of active energy movement that I have ever practiced. And it is an amazing gentle and nurturing physical work-out.
Come experience a mini class. I’ll be teaching these regularly soon. This is your opportunity to step in and experience this powerful nurturing art form.

Come check it out and if you attend on Saturday the 1st, come to my lecture on Conscious Dying~ Living and Dying with Grace. Hope to see you there!

Conscious Dying~ Living and Dying with Grace

Shamanic cosmology views leaving this life as a sacred rite of passage to be sweetly and gently nurtured and held while our western culture has ignored, or denied, or simply not dealt with death as an essential part of living. Join Christina as she shares how her own experiences with death have provided insights into living: from the little girl asking mommy and daddy “where do we go when we die?” to the spiritual seeker asking spirit and ayahuasca to ‘Show me the way beyond death.” Come experience your own Life Review providing the opportunity to then say the unsaid ‘I love yous’ or the unspoken’I forgive yous’ and to address those places in our lives that are calling for attention.

Show Hours

IMG_4267the enigma

tossing and turning
you are
the enigma

so bright your light can be
so dark your shadow
it is said from wounds
comes compassion

your heart, it feels the world
it is what i felt when i met you
when we sat across the table
i saw your light

i didn’t know then the darkness
because I knew not my own

i have a confession…
i’ve been having an intense affair.
it’s been more than 2 years now.

i have slowly, ever so slowly, been falling in love,
with myself- for the first time.

it is my darkness, my shadow
that stares back at me, unwaveringly,
that has given me permission to love.
and it is your darkness that has revealed itself again and again.
fall in love with yourself please
say hello to your shadow
so that we may love again.
