Take a Look at Last Year’s Forum Four
Class Schedule, 2019
This year our focus is on the Five Transformations of Energy, This system of approaching balance is ingrained in thousands of years of traditional Chinese medicine. It’s one of the most important tools in holistic health, governing everything from time of day to season to organ function to health and personality by explaining the natural shift of energy called yin and yang. The bottom line is the integration–oneness–of all phenomena, visible or not.
Each day at Forum Four we will focus on a specific energy to view its natural balance and influence on health.
