Calendar of Events
Kumo is Moving
Beginning in March I will no longer be working out of the Multnomah Family Care Center. I would have loved to stay in the Village, but it turns out I will need to move down the street. I will now be seeing patients out of the Portland Wellness Center in Hillsdale. I am hoping to make this transition as smooth as possible. Please contact me if you have any questions. The Portland Wellness Center is located at 6274 SW Capitol Highway, Portland OR 97239. I will once again be in charge of my billing and scheduling when the change occurs. And so, you can expect the straight forward service I enjoy offering. The Portland Wellness Center is a well established clinic with multiple independent practitioners. I got a very good feel from the space when I toured and expect that you will all be comfortable with the switch.
I am honored to be participating in this great event. The next date is Sunday March 23rd at Tabor Space. Please follow the link above for more details. In a nutshell, this is a supportive community that puts on an educational event complete with amazing food, massage, acupuncture, and sound healing. Anyone whose life has been affected by cancer should consider attending.
1000 Hands Buddha 2014 Schedule:
I will resume teaching 1000 Hands Buddha in the Spring.
Below is a list of possible additional forms you may request when attending a class.
This is a brief standing exercise taken from two of the eight movements from 8 Treasures which help to strengthen and heal the digestive tract.
This is a third movement taken from 8 Treasures. It is also a brief standing exercise. This routine is helpful in clearing the lungs and chest of congestion and aids in stimulating the immune system.
This is a short standing routine that has many different names and interpretations by different qi gong schools. This form is powerful in treating anxiety and building patience by cultivating a strong and compassionate heart/spirit.
This is a brief routine from the Ling Gui International School of Qi Gong which aids in the storage and circulation of qi in the lower dan tian. It massages all the internal organs and raises qi to the head. Therefore, the form is useful for any digestive discomfort, tension in the chest, and/or memory loss.
This is a simple walking meditation that harmonizes the qi of all the acupuncture channels in the body. This form is excellent in treating fatigue from any cause and is especially helpful when recovering from severe illness.
This is a great event that I am excited to be participating in. If you, or someone you know, has been affected by cancer you should check out the link above. They are a great soon to be non-profit whose mission is to care for cancer patients, survivors and their families.
One of the teachings of Qi Gong is to be in tune with the world around you. One great way to feel this conections is to practice Qi Gong outside. For this reason, during the Summer I lead a class in Gabriel Park. The form I lead is Eight Treasures Qi Gong which is a standing form developed to gently strengthen the tendons and muscles. Though I usually introduce other short meditations as well. Please follow the link above for more details.
