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 January 4th from 7-9pm begins the Touch of Sound Journey 2019. We will focus on the Gallbladder Meridian- celebrating hope, courage, direction, and motivation! Rising out of the darkest part of the year into the light that illuminates our path. Having the courage and perspective to clearly see the direction to put our energy towards, and the impetus to move forward towards our goals! Not a bad way to start the year, eh?!
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. Ryan McLaughlin, L.Ac.will craft a unique treatment for you 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.
