Food can affect how you feel and how you feel affects the food you choose so by using Traditional Chinese Medicine you can use your body’s clues such as cravings, emotions, colours and times of day/year to understand what is going on inside your body. We all have to eat, now you can understand what you are eating and why you chose the foods you do.  This course is about understanding unconscious desires for certain foods and understanding the emotional aspect of food.

 

Conscious Body Class

Thursday’s 1pm till 2pm      

€4  @  Greenside House, Cuffe Street

These new classes are about body awareness, meridian stretches and self shiatsu points.  Each week we will add to the sequence of stretches and self shiatsu so that you have a method of keeping the body healthy, emotionally and physically by understanding the meridian system of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The term ‘meridian’ describes overall energy distribution system and helps us to understand how basic substances of the body (Energy, blood and body fluids) permeate the whole body.  Simply put, a meridian is an ‘energy highway’ in the human body through which chi energy flows.  Meridians exist in corresponding pairs and each meridian has many acupuncture/acupressure points along its path.

“Acupressure” is one of the latest buzz words in health and wellness. It’s easy with no needles. It’s been used for thousands of years to relieve pain, release stress, and treat a range of ailments, from stomach problems to headaches.  It can lower blood pressure and boost the immune system. It can ease insomnia and reduce anxiety.   The best part about acupressure is that it requires no fancy equipment. Only the power of your very own hands.

Good Food – Good Sex Cooking Day

Saturday 21st January – 11am-3.30pm  

sushi

The foods that enhance sexual energy and improve sexual health usually relate to the kidney, as it is the organ that controls hormones and reproduction. It is the Kidney/Bladder’s function to make the most of our constitutional energy. It is responsible for providing the basic impulse toward life, the ability to grow, to reproduce and control healthy stress levels.   Physically this concerns the adrenals, hormones, bones and our very marrow which out of balance can mean issues with water retention, thyroid, diminished hearing, frequent urination, reoccurring bladder infections, night sweats, menopause, loss of libido and osteoporosis.

Learning easy to cook recipes specifically for these organs is a great way to nourish, heal and support this aspect of the body.  

The flavour for the Bladder and Kidney is Salty and as Pythagoras said ……“Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea”  It is essential to learn and use healthy recipes with this flavour

On the menu is:

  • Simple Nori Sushi Rolls with dipping sauce (strong bones, hair & teeth)
  • Dulse Seaweed & Feta Scones (mineral balance)

  • Caramalized red onion and Seaweed quiche (counteract exhaustion)
  • Oat & Buckwheat Pancakes (balance hormones)
  • Chilli con Barley (anti inflammatory)
  • Traditional Lemon Barley Water (perfect for reoccurring UTI’s)
  • Black Sesame Grapes (raising libido)

The cost of the day is €75 – couple booking €140 and includes all food cooked and eaten on the day

The day will run from 11 am til 3.30 pm and is hosted in the light and bright kitchen at the Hunky Chunk House.  There is plenty of parking and the Bayside Dart station is a 2 minute walk away.
