Nervous system, in Chinese, translates as “the Pathways for Spirit.” When our nervous system is healthy, resilient and robust, we may weave a more intimate connection with the Spirit, the Tao, or Life as a whole. 

The nervous system, as a living entity, requires regular tending, just like the flowers and vegetables in a garden. A regular practice where we allow the nervous system to regenerate and resource creates a stable foundation, like a rich layer of topsoil. Without that, the nervous system gets stuck in fight/flight/freeze mode, leaving us feeling chronically stressed, anxious, depleted, overwhelmed or shut down. 

How to cultivate an engaging, enjoyable and long-lasting routine of practice? What are the challenges and rewards? What’s the benefit of doing it with a community? 

In this Tea Time session, Joe will interview Spring and Angela MacLeod regarding practices. For both Spring and Angela, a regular practice has been crucial in their life-long journey towards wholeness. After the interview, the space will be open for group reflections and discussions.

Spring Cheng has been enjoying her three decades long experience of cultivating wholeness, including Qigong, Taoist meditation, martial arts, dance and improvisation, and contemplative art practice.
Angela MacLeod’s practices include mindfulness, self-inquiry, Taoist Qigong, Authentic Movement, improvisation. neuroscience-based nervous system regulation and resourcing exercises. She has extensively studied the Polyvagal Theory of the nervous system, Non-Violent Communication and Jungian work. 

In April, Spring Cheng and Angela MacLeod will co-host Qi Time, 20-min long practice including qigong, movement, mindfulness and nervous system regulating and resourcing exercises. and a variety of modalities. Qi Time will be offered four times a week. The series is free to attend. Donations are much appreciated but not required.
