This course is inspired by juniper‘s studies in Chinese Medicine and the five movements that generate and create all life. Each element/movement has a powerful key to developing resilience. Unlocking the gift of each movement opens the way for the five movements to dance in your life. This is a dance to foster calm, flexibility, joy, nurture, and surrender. Get ready to get your alchemy on!
Why the five movements?
In Chinese Medicine, the five movements, the wu xing, form a circle that generates and maintains all life. Each movement is the mother of the one following, birthing and generating life in a continuous circle. When all elements are in their power, everything flows, creating a nuanced, playful, and powerful system of life. Looking at this generating cycle can give us profound insight into what is in balance and what needs more attention. In addition, this course explores the gift of each element for you to activate and play with in your life. Each element holds a key to resilience. Let's learn from the best – nature – in all her elemental glory.

💗 We grow together
五行小屋 The Five Elements House by Hao Hao
We’re here to create a safe place to live with intention and encourage our most authentic selves to shine. Here’s the best way for each of us to get there:
Be supportive. Encourage and support your fellow peers. No one here is looking for criticism, cynicism, advice, or judgment. (We can get those things on the rest of the Internet).
Share generously. This is a safe place to be seen. Your stories and experiences may be exactly what another pupil needs to hear today to solve a problem or seize an opportunity.
Be constructive. We’re here to push each other forward and lift each other up. Find ways to help each other think bigger, reframe challenges, and stay curious.
Don’t spam, promote, or troll. 30 Days of Intuitive Eating exists to help us learn and grow together. It’s not a place to spam, promote, or bully anyone else.
