Five Elements Theory Series: WATER

Would you like to learn how to apply principles of Taoism to simplify your life?

  • In these five workshops , we will dive into learning how to see through the lens of Five Element Theory to enhance our lives (sleeping, eating & socialising), work spaces & our spiritual practices.

  • These ideas enable individualising each person’s unique constitution and how to quickly spot imbalances and apply easy remedies.

  • Expect to learn a series of short exercises that you can do for yourself and your community, to create an environment for balance, nurture and thriving!

  • There is no yoga in these workshops, but be in clothing that is comfortable enough to easily move around your home.

  • The fourth workshop of this series is focused on the element of WATER [Black Turtle & Winter].

  • Water is the element of going within, the archetype of the black turtle retreats into their shell and meditates during the cold darkness of winter

  • This class features some of the ways we can spot water gifts, imbalances and stagnation in the face and symptoms. The bladder channel runs from the head, along the spin and down the back of the legs. The channel divides in several areas and altogether covers the Central Nervous System

  • This workshop shows us where the key-holes are on the bladder channel so that we can create a healthy balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system

  • The techniques learned can be done on yourself or with others

  • Every season we will be exploring the relevant element in the upcoming workshops included in this series

Meet Your Teacher - Jambo Truong

  • As a multi-disciplinary practitioner, with experiences of East-Asian medicine styles and a fascination with orthopaedic diagnostics, expect to experience a balanced approach of science and magick with Jambo.

  • Ceremony consists of honouring directions and using the archetypes from each to enable intent setting for the day. Songs, bodywork & meditation help to set the tone of the intent.

  • A Forrest Yoga Guardian, Jambo teaches the classical framework of Forrest Yoga and adds his unique approach of kinesiology to enable further understanding of the biomechanics and somatic experiences within the practise of yoga. An apprentice to Senior Shaman, Esther Lim for 13 years and has engaged in Taoist ceremonial practices from a young age.

  • Jambo's mission is to help others believe in their own personal gifts and he encourages the creation of a safe environment to explore and develop the ability to share those gifts. He believes in doing as many impossible things as possible and is a practitioner of dissolving useless and toxic concepts.
