Group Acupuncture and Percussive Journey
Join Ryan McLaughlin, L.Ac. and Benjammin Lee on the first Friday of each month reclaiming the relationship with your body while harmonizing with the season in a group healing circle.
Following the art and wisdom of Chinese Cosmology, we invite you to join us for an embodied exploration of the Chinese Medicine organ networks- through acupuncture, percussive sound journey, meditation, song, and movement. You will have the opportunity to deepen your relationship with yourself- one organ at a time. Each month a different organ and acupuncture channel will be featured, felt, and loved.
Friday, March 1, we continue our journey and exploration with the Lung meridian. The wisdom within the Lung meridian assists us in maintaining a smooth flow in times of transition. Would you like more support in transitioning from old habitual patterns to new ways of being in this world? Or getting dialed in with a spiritual practice that will be of service to you each day? Perhaps you would like to set a rhythm to breathe your goals and visions into the external world- bringing the breath of your Spirit into material form informed by close relationship with the Empress/Emperor of the Heart.
On a physical level, deepening your relationship with the organ network of the Lung assists in strengthening your respiratory system, immune system, boundary setting, skin health, and moving through grief patterns- old and new.
Acupuncture in this healing circle will provide opportunity to attune to the present moment through harnessing the stories and wisdom held within the acupuncture channels- this month focusing on the Lung channel. Ryan McLaughlin, L.Ac. will craft a unique treatment for each person using pulse diagnosis to open the doorway into supporting your unique constitution.
The room will be filled with the sweet vibrations of Benjammin Lee– an active percussionist in the Portland music scene- as we journey into the exploration within. Treat yourself to an evening basking in the finer nuances of sound that will be informed by the stories within the Lung meridian.
