Calligraphy Yoga – Marriage of the Elements

April 2nd, 2019 by

In a time of deep fragmentation, disconnection, and dis-ease there is a misconception and over-complication of how to walk a VITAL, AWARE and EMBODIED way of life.

To re-connect we must break down the most simplistic elements of life: EARTH, WATER, AIR, FIRE, ETHER. Inside the marriage of these elements lies the secrets of life, the harmony of nature, stability, flow, adaptability, purification, and connection… A reorganisation, back to a natural way of being.

But before we look at the essence of HEALTH and VITALITY we must look at the essence of disconnection and dis-ease. The root of the sickness originates from instability, stagnation, rigidity, toxicity, and disconnection.

Through the Calligraphy Yoga system there is a reorientation that occurs within the physical and energetic bodies. This system inspires movements that originate from the center, and movements that expand from deep inside the cells. The emergence of vitality occurs in the trainings as people learn to relax (“relax” meaning calm, balanced, strong, centered, alert), sink the weight of the body and loosen the grip of tension in the belly and the fascia. Over time as we learn to soften, slow down and silence the mind, we formulate a deep communion and communication with our internal body, cells, organs, and the internal intelligence that breathes us alive. By changing the way we move and bringing emotion into our movement, we align with this innate intelligence.

The Calligraphy health system is an ancient echo of the potential of the human energy system. Developed by Master Zhen Hua Yang, this work is of vital importance for these times. In a time of extreme disconnection, dis-ease, and instability, this system inspires a flowering of the human energy system, revitalises communication with the cells, awakens life energy, and nourishes organ health.

Through this work, I have personally seen miracles of healing through subtle shifts in perception and the relationship to the body. Sciatica transformed in days. Vikings Disease dissolving. Trauma reorganised and severe illness sent into remission. The simple act of softening the belly has a huge capacity to transform the fear startle response, or trauma responses that all humans on the planet have embedded in the biology of the cells. Change the vibration of the cell (the 37 trillion cells within the body) and transform illness by changing your being. Begin to move differently everyday, like the water or the wind and begin a communication with the inside of the body. The momentum of energy that builds within is deeply transformational, shifting the relationship with stress and tension.

Change the tension in your body and awaken the vitality that lives inside you.

DIY Detox? – The benefits of a group setting for Body Cleanse and Detox

August 4th, 2017 by

“I have tried to cleanse on my own a few times at home and I always ended up quitting after a day or two…”


In almost every opening circle of the Body Cleanse Detox Program,  we hear this sharing from one or more of the participants. To hold a juice fast for yourself might not seem like a big challenge – that is, until you actually try to do it… Not only does it take a good deal of time to prepare the juices, but trying to complete the process while sticking to a work routine and warding off temptations brings many people to realize they cannot bring what they started to completion.

A group setting is a powerful tool. Sharing the experience with others supports us in our moments of challenge. A deep body cleanse will often bring to the surface emotions we have been avoiding for a long time.  Those toxins in our colon hold memories and experiences from our past and once they start moving, we are faced with those emotions. Being part of a group allows us to realize that we are not alone in our experience- finding support and supporting others through their process creates a safe space for healing to happen. Fasting makes us more open and sensitive. This sensitivity creates an intimate bond between the detox group members.


Our relationship with food is often a reflection of our relationship to other areas in our lives. Through holistic tools like movement, breath and group sharings, a body cleanse can expand into your emotional and mental body. If we dare to expose ourselves, we often find that we have more in common with each other than we think and that we can seek the support and help of others in order to move toward our own healing.


It is possible to do it alone, but it is so much more rewarding and enriching to share this process with others.

Natural life, healthy life

February 2nd, 2017 by

It seems like being “healthy” in this day and age is a complicated task.
The majority of the population is taking some kind of pharmaceutical drug to deal with different symptoms while others are finding alternative ways to take care of their health issues.
We are constantly preoccupied with our health, often spending lots of time and money while our efforts reward us with nothing but frustration.

A juice fast or a detox retreat is good way to support good health. Facilitating this process and seeing the positive changes it creates in people’s lives made me wonder what it is that the body needs in order to be healthy and in fact, what it means to be “healthy”.

It’s a known fact that today people are as much affected by stress, over-exposure to electronic devices and poor sleep as they are from the food they eat. I started noticing that spending a week in nature, where one can breathe clean air and drink clean water, walk barefoot, jump in the river or bathe in the sun, has as much a positive effect on body-cleanse participants as fasting and colon cleansing.
It is my understanding that “health” is the natural state of our bodies and that being in an environment where nature is present and alive supports our body to move into a more naturally healthy state. We have separated ourselves from nature, placing our trust in the food industry and the drug companies, forgetting the simple ways of nature. Reconnecting to that simple, natural way of life could very well be the first step into a new state of health from which better choices of nutrition and lifestyle can organically manifest in our lives.

PachaMama provides the perfect environment for us to heal and reconnect to our state of well-being, allowing ourselves to be inspired and touched by the balanced harmony that is nature.
Clean air, clean water, sunny beaches and the song of the birds are also great doctors this life has to offer.
