For this unique retreat we will be looking at the heart in Chinese Medicine – not only looking at what foods keep our Heart healthy, but what physical and emotional practices we can incorporate to expand love in our life and maintain a healthy body.

You will learn which foods reduce physical conditions such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugars together with how the emotional body relates to organ health, together with recipes to reduce anxiety, insomnia and palpitations.

We will experience the body through heart-focused Qi Gong exercises, stretches and acupressure points, plus meditation, mindfulness and mantra techniques that calm the mind and bring the Heart home for peaceful sleep and a loving joyful life.

You will leave feeling healthy, happy, rested and well-fed, with an understanding of how food connects to heart health and a happy mind.

The Heart in Chinese Medicine sits serene in the body supported like an emperor by all the other organs in the body. I have chosen my favourite recipes to keep each organ healthy and support the Heart, including:

– Green Beans, Wood Ear Fungus and Garlic (aiding blood circulation)
– Cacao Hot Chocolate (opening the heart for emotional bliss)
– Caper & Sundried Tomato dressing (aiding liver blood flow)
– Beetroot, Pear & Feta Salad (dilating the arteries to help blood flow)
– Lettuce Juice (a sleeping tonic)
​​- Rosemary Oil & Tea (circulation for fingers and toes)
Some of the ingredients are specialized to thin the blood or reduce arterial build up but most recipes are created using everyday fresh ingredients.

Even the healthiest people need to nourish and protect their Heart. This retreat will help you understand your body, interpreting its signals and clues to feed it what it needs, emotionally and physically to stay Happy, Healthy and in Love with life.
