Time & Location

About the Event
The elements can be understood as archetypal energies, described by ancient contemplatives as observable patterns of the natural world. We, as modern humans, sometimes consciously or unconsciously, may act as if we are separate from nature. This creates at the very least disharmony and in the extreme, destruction, as evidenced in the environmental catastrophe that we currently find ourselves in. The advice of the ancients is to seek to understand ourselves as inseparable from nature and to look to her for guidance in creating harmony and healing in ourselves and our world. In this 5 week series we will explore the 5 elements of the Chinese philosophical system through Dharma talks, led contemplations, yogic and somatic movement, and meditation.
