Weekend with PHYLLIS D. LIGHT
October 25 – 27, 2019
Friday, October 25, 9:30am – 4pm
~ FOLK HEALTH ASTROLOGY
The Signs in the Heavens and the four elements have served as traditional guideposts for health and prosperity for centuries. The core principle of folk health astrology is based on assignment of the Signs to different parts of the body as illustrated by the Almanac Man. My grandmother use to say, “When the Signs are in the head, folks will be catching colds.” Or, “the Signs are in the feet, time to plant potatoes.” Understanding the Signs which are assigned to different body parts (based on the Zodiac) can help bring an understanding of constitutional characteristics based on the four elements.
These same Signs can also be used in planting and in other aspects of daily life. For example, to make hair grow, get the dead ends trimmed when the Signs are in the throat, gut, and knees. To harvest hay that doesn’t mold, cut the hay in the old of the moon.
Join Phyllis in a discussion of the body Signs, the four elements and their influence on the body. This is a really fun class and you won’t want to miss it! Bring your chart!
Saturday, October 26, 9am – 5pm
& Sunday, October 27, 9am – 3pm
~ OUR MUSCLES, BONES, AND SPIRIT
A whole new perspective of Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and other issues with Joint Pain
We…..move, walk, talk, dance, sing, turn, run, lift and work……….. Our muscles and bones are the foundation that gives us form and provides the locomotion we need to engage in our daily lives. We alternate between movement for work and movement for pleasure while seeking oneness with our bodies, mind, and spirit.
Join Phyllis D. Light for a unique look at the Musculoskeletal System……How we are connected, how we move, how we release tension, and how we can become at peace with our bodies. The class will alternate between lecture and movement as body awareness.
We’ll discuss the building blocks of the Musculoskeletal System, the different types of muscle fibers, connective tissue, and herbs, supplements and foods to help keep the tissues of the system healthy and strong. We’ll talk about Herbs for Aches and Pains and what to do when our locomotive system is injured or damaged with plantar fasciitis, backache, fibromyalgia, cramps, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and other such injuries. We’ll discuss posture and the effect that standing and sitting has on our internal organs. We’ll discuss the nature of fascia and how to keep it healthy, strong, and flexible.
This isn’t your typical class on the Musculoskeletal System……..Wear comfortable clothing and come prepared to learn…. move….. dance…. and breath….not necessarily in that order. We’ll embrace the four elements…. fire, water, air, and earth….and move with each. We’ll also stretch that most important muscle–the laugh muscle.
The class will be held at the Sacred Plant Traditions, Saturday and Sunday, October 26-27, from . Come laugh, learn, and move. It’ll be a great time.
9am – 5pm Saturday, 9am – 3pm Sunday.
