Awaken your aliveness and joy, transform limiting emotions and cultivate creative spiritual power.

This daylong workshop will be led by Master Mingtong Gu with a special appearance by James Baraz, Spirit Rock meditation teacher and author of Awakening Joy. Linling will join Mingtong in leading practice.

You will learn meditation, movement, and sound healing for emotional transformation, including activating the energy of the spine to increase flexibility and enhance alignment.

These practices:

* Awaken your physical body to its energetic potential
* Release pain and stress, and reduce anxiety and depression
* Strengthen your endocrine and immune systems

As a highlight, Mingtong will offer the teaching and practice of sound healing—an effective technology to heal fearful or negative emotions, especially at this time of personal and social challenges. We will move our spines and bodies to the healing sounds in a unified rhythm with hundreds of practitioners. This is a powerful opportunity to share this amplified resonance with a large group.

By tapping into this ancient healing technology, you will obtain powerful tools for self-healing. By achieving a deeper sense of wellbeing, emotional stability and balance, you are empowered to attract positive changes into your life. These practices enhance other mind-body-spiritual practices, and deepen your connection to universal healing energy.

This workshop will offer teachings as well as practice; the evening program will mostly focus on practice. Both day and evening programs are open to all; no experience is required. They are beneficial to everyone, including all ages and health conditions.

"Joy is not for the lucky few. It's a choice anyone can make. Joy is already there inside you. It is inherent in every one of us, an innate capacity, like the ability to learn a language or to love. As innocent babies we came into this world with a natural joy, and we can discover it again."
—James Baraz, Author, Awakening Joy
