Let's change the conversation away from the fear-based "breast cancer awareness" month October has come to be known for. Let's focus instead on ways to support healthy breasts in all women - even for those who may have already had breast cancer or are in active treatment. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) know that the three major organs which support healthy breasts are the Stomach, Liver and Kidney. Each organ is responsible for processing certain emotions -- both negative and positive. For example, Stomach processes worry and anxiety as well as balance and trust. When an organ is overwhelmed with unexpressed negative emotions year after year after year, the Qi of that organ becomes imbalanced and stagnant. In TCM, this energy imbalance and stagnation is considered the very earliest stage of disease.
One gentle, yet powerful, way to help move stuck emotions out of our body is through The Six Healing Sounds qigong. The Six Healing Sounds is a self-healing technique developed by Chinese Taoist shamans and sages thousands of years ago. They developed simple sounds and movements for each major organ in order to unblock stuck emotions and stagnant Qi (life force energy). This helps increase the Qi flow along that organ's meridians, balance the emotions, and restore health to the physical body.
Tonight, LinDel will give a brief overview of The Six Healing Sounds. Then, focusing especially on the Stomach, Liver and Kidney, she'll teach you a few simple Qigong movements (all of which can even be done seated). Once we begin the movements, Judith will weave in the sounds of her gongs and Tibetan singing bowls - with a different bowl or gong for each of the Six Healing Sounds. By integrating physical movements with sounds, you help bring the healing more deeply within. As we peak towards the end of the evening, Judith will bring us to stillness as we soak in the healing vibrations of her beautiful, rich gongs.
