Part 1 in a series
Welcome to a new year, a new time and space to reflect on our past learnings and where we want to be, how we want to be, what we want to create, what we want to model and exhibit, where we will be to make our offerings, and dance our prayers into the space of manifesting into existence.
For us, we chose to go inside this season, to reflect on things like: Who I am now? What are my needs? What have I learned? How do I move forward with these learnings, and what parts of these learnings and growth will I share? What does the quitening of the spirit do to help us align with our purpose? And in what ways will we share this. Deep inside we find our answers, so we chose not to be too external (gathering gifts, socializing etc) this season, and took the opportunity to really dive in and reflect. We did a lot with our Qi Gong practice, which allows us to dive deeper into our inner world.
We chose to collaborate with each other on a painting to honor the dawning of a new day, the new Sun, the shifting of the seasons,
...Welcoming the new light as the days become longer.
We started this Solstice painting last year at this time to bring our family of artists together and...
We continued putting our Winter Solstice Blessings in to the painting this year. We added the Elk calling in the New Sun and the Bear, hibernating, dreaming deeply in the stillness.
Stay tuned as this Winter Solstice painting comes to fruition next year.
As we emerge from this sacred reflection time, we feel inspired by our ever deepening Qi Going practice.
So, to honor up the thousands of years old tradition of Qi Gong, we chose to create something special for you that we will be releasing around the time of the
Chinese New Year: February 1, 2022. This is a new moon.
Celebrations of Chinese New Year traditionally last for 16 days, starting from Chinese New Year's Eve to the Lantern Festival. In 2022, that is from January 31st to February 15th as a public holiday.
Traditionally Chinese Lunar New Year activities started as early as three weeks before Chinese New Year's Eve. Old-fashioned (mostly rural) folk start cleaning their houses from the 23rd of the twelfth lunar month (January 25th, 2022).
Here is our free offering to support you in creating the realization of your Vision for this new cycle.
