IMPORTANT: Zoom has updated their system for security. Zoom now requires that you register in advance for any meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. It is often easier to join the session if you check in first in your own zoom account.

Each week Amelia will create new links just for each of the two free virtual workshops that Saturday. These are measures to try to preserve privacy and security while keeping the workshops open to all.

Please feel free to circulate these links among relatives and friends who you feel might benefit from learning these easy and effective practices to lower anxiety and boost their health and healing.

Each session will include effective practices to cultivate mindfulness and meditation, increase your physical and emotional well-being, boost your immune system, strengthen your respiratory system and to help you let go of fear, anxiety and depression. Anyone can practice these techniques regardless of age.

If you practice them everyday, they will help you develop resilience to Covid-19. They are easy to learn. I will show you how to integrate them into a daily routine to achieve greater good health, clarity and inner peace in the midst of challenges.

Nurturing Our Spirit

with Yoga and Qigong

Amelia Barili

Workshop offered through Mount Madonna Center,

Santa Cruz Mountains, California

ONLINE

June 18-19, 2022

As the end of the Summer approaches, we get ready to harvest and store the energy we will need for the Fall and Winter months.

The healing traditions of India and China see Fall as the season of nurturing our Spirit. It is a time to release stagnant energy, nourish our courage and strength, and reap the fruits of wisdom and compassion, storing them in our body and mind, so we can beckon them when we need them. 

Drawing from the healing traditions of Classical Yoga and Qigong, as well as from the latest findings in the Neuroscience of Meditation, Amelia Barili will teach you mindfulness, heartfulness and bodyfullness to let go of what is stale, open yourself to new possibilities, gather and store vibrant Qi, boost your immune system, strengthen your lungs and heart, and harvest wisdom and compassion towards yourself and others.

In this workshop we will practice:

  • Acupressure release points and moving meditations from Qigong to work with specific emotions and organs for releasing old energy and increase wellness and healing
  • Powerful breath practices from Yoga to boost your lungs and immune system
  • Ways of gathering and storing Qi to face challenges with clarity and inner strength
  • Useful information from Neuroscience about how to befriend your nervous system and align your brain and heart
  • A prayer and a practice to cultivate and harvest wisdom and compassion.

These practices are easy to learn. They are recommended for anyone wanting to lead a healthy life and for counselors and health professionals assisting others in regaining their health.

AMELIA BARILI Ph.D. received her diploma in Yoga Therapy and Philosophy, 1972, at Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute, India. She is an internationally respected yoga teacher and a disciple of Grandmaster Yang Mei Jun, the 27th inheritor of the Taoist Medical Qigong system. A pioneer at integrating both wisdom traditions, she is also an award-winning faculty at UC Berkeley and the Osher Life Long Learning Institute, where she teaches youth and older adults a systematic embodied mind approach for personal and community transformation.
