Spring is Growth... Are You Growing?

by John Stan | Mar 02, 2016

Spring is now upon us, with everyday gifting us more of itself and darkness shrinking in proportion on the clock. To me, those five minutes of extra light is a cause for celebration. And whenever I notice this, I find myself caught in joy, feeling grateful that the light is still out even at 5:45PM. I give thanks to the powers that be. No wonder our ancestors had big parties to celebrate this increase of brightness and renewal of life. Spring truly is a yearly miracle of nature’s rebirth.

In the last two newsletters I wrote articles (read article 1 and article 2) giving detailed instructions on cultivating our strengths* through practicing a technique I named “Qi Gong for the Yin Brain”. To those of you who have read the articles, I hope you’ve tried the technique yourselves. With regular practice of this technique, you should be experiencing the benefits of inserting this quick, self-empowering practice, and hopefully, be confident enough to teach it to your patients.

For those of you who have not read them, I encourage you to take the time to read the articles and try learning the technique. Even if you know lots of self cultivation techniques, learning more is like adding another colourful flower to your growing garden of delight! I believe the technique taught in the articles will add a new and fresh perspective to your practice and help revolutionize other self-cultivation techniques you’ve previously learnt. Feel free to contact me with any questions as I would be more than happy to answer them. 

With spring representing new growth, we here at Eastern Currents are growing with new products and projects. Click here to read more about our newest group of products featuring an exciting line of Ear Seed Self Care Kits. Also, remember to check our announcements for upcoming new courses in the fall! We hope to see you at one of them.

Wishing you all a colourful and delightful spring season,


*the five " Strengths” are creativity, playfulness, trust/love, letting go, and resourcefulness.These strengths are inherent in us and are just as available to us as our five stress emotions, which are: frustration/anger, seriousness/sadness, worry, hanging on, and fear. Without self-cultivation training, we just default into our stress emotions when changes occur. Practicing self-cultivation will help increase our ability to default into our strengths during times of change.
