Yi-Ren Medical Qigong Level 2 & 3
Feb 24 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Yi-Ren Medical Qigong Level 2 & 3 @ Healing Circles Langley | Langley | Washington | United States

The Yi Ren system of Qigong is designed to support an individual in the exploration and expression of the intelligence and wisdom already within the body. During Diana’s cancer, Qigong gave her a way to check in with her body, remove stress, and increase her healing capacity.

Level 2 helps you activate the individual organ meridians and learn how they partner with other organs in the body. Level 3 helps you connect to both our innermost chemistry in the neuroendocrine system but also to energies outside of us. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll be able to feel–and how much better you’ll feel .

This class will meet on Mondays at 10 and will be taught by Diana Lindsay, certified instructor for the Institute for Qigong and Integrative Medicine.

This Level 2 & 3 class is for those who have completed Level 1.

Circle of Hosts
Feb 24 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Healing Circle for Men (Full)
Feb 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Healing Circle for Men (Full) @ Langley | Washington | United States

The Healing Circles for Men held here are based on the same agreements, philosophy, and general format that all of our circles share. For those of you unfamiliar with Healing Circles Langley, we provide a protected space where anyone can explore and engage in their own healing—and by “healing” we go back to the root of the word, “to make whole.” Healing Circles Langley is also rooted in the dual tenets that each person has influence over their own healing, and that influence is most effective when in a community of others.

Circles here are hosted rather led or facilitated, are peer-based rather than therapy-driven, and are founded on 5 agreements:

  1. We treat each other with kindness and respect
  2. We listen to each other with compassion and curiosity
  3. We honor each other’s unique way to healing and do not presume to advise, fix, or save one another
  4. We hold all shared stories in utmost confidence
  5. We trust that each of us has guidance we need within us and will sometimes rely on the power of silence to access it

Our tradition is deeply influenced by—and extremely grateful for—the PeerSpirit/Circle Way approach to circles. During most of our circles we typically make use of a talking stick or stone during sharing rounds, lean heavily on the campfire metaphor, often pause for silence, and frequently use poetry. We typically have no agenda other than expressing what’s on one’s mind at the moment and then taking it from there.

[Sorry! This circle is currently at capacity. If you’d like to be put on a waiting list we’ll try to fit you in when space becomes available or when a new Healing Circle for Men is being formed.]

Parenting through Difficult Times
Feb 25 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Parenting through Difficult Times

Parenting is a journey, taking us to peaks more beautiful than ever imaginable and to depths that test our stamina. Then sometimes, things get worse.

When our children (of any age) are hurting—whether from anxiety, depression, loneliness, or other circumstances—we hurt too. We can feel at a loss about what to do. Our hearts ache with worry.

Aching hearts need support. Join us in this healing circle, sharing our stories with other parents who get it, offering us comfort in knowing we are not alone.

This is an open, drop in circle, which typically meets 2nd & 4th Tuesdays, 10-11:30am, but there are exceptions. Please consult the calendar of check with the host.

Hosted by Diana Sandoval: Diana is a parenting coach, a racial justice trainer and consultant, and a longtime facilitator of groups. She believes in the power of listening, of being witnessed, and of sitting in community. She is the mother of a young adult.

Please contact Diana for more information at 206-819-0613 or via email at fredoval@earthlink.net.

The Poetry Apothecary
Feb 26 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
The Poetry Apothecary

“…Poetry has redemptive power for me, as it does for millions of people. Poems have provided life jackets to keep me from drowning, ballast to keep me from ascending to altitudes where there’s not enough oxygen to support life, and maps to keep me from getting lost in the wilderness….” Parker J Palmer

We will to stock up the shelves of our Poetry Apothecary with poems that comfort and heal.   Come and join us to help weigh, measure and distill poems for their healing properties so we can store each one in our apothecary. Our first theme was “aging”. Bring poems that have helped you, that perhaps have companioned you through the ups and downs of life.  In subsequent meetings we will collectively decide on other themes, such as loneliness, loss, overwhelm, wonder, the healing power of nature, despondency, fragility, forgiveness and inspiration.  We will mine the storehouse of poetic literature and we will also look at poems which you may have written yourself as a way of finding resolve.

Hosted by Judith Adams, Peter Martin & Gary Vallat.
