    Wei qi & the Sinews

    The sinew channels circulate wei qi on the surface of the body. Their primary job is said to be protection but they do so much more. They are our interface with the world around us and they do indeed protect us from exterior pathogens and traumatic impact, but they also filter and mediate every experience and sensation that is introduced from the outside. They help us create a posture or demeanor that helps us feel safer in the world. They are responsible for the physical expression or our thoughts and emotions. The sinews carry the burden of having to react to everything outside of us before the other levels of qi engage. In this class we will explore how that reaction can become habituated and keep us in survival mode instead of moving fluidly in the world and expressing ourselves authentically.

    Day 1 will cover the theory of this system. Functions, indications for use and important points.

    Day 2 will be a practicum that provides exercises that deepen the understanding of the system, including: assessing posture through the 6 cutaneous zones, palpation skills, body-scanning mediations, simple “holding” hands-on techniques for freeing the wei qi.
