We are especially excited to offer treatments and a special weekend with Lindy Ferrigno, ABT (NCCAOM), CI (AOBTA), LMT.  Lindy is truely amazing.  Gonzo and I have been studying with her for over 11 years.  We continue to bring her to Portland because we get the most amazing Shiatsu treatments and teachings for us and our GroundSpring community.  Lindy's Shiatsu is more than meridian work.  Her hands will work on and off the body.  My favorite quote from my friend with MS is, "I can actually walk after a Lindy session". 
Lindy also leads individual sessions Chakra Development (2 hours), DNA Activation (2 hours), and Quantum Soul Retrieval (4 hours).  These seated, guided visualization sessions are quite amazing and life enriching.  Lindy will provide treatments in Portland, OR during the week of 8/11-8/15 at GroundSpring. To schedule, please call the clinic at 503-244-1330.  Lindy's hourly rate is $125.
Lindy will be back in September for a 6 or 9 hour workshop on DNA activation.  Scroll on down for more information!

Jade Body Qigong
with Joanna Flores, LAc, ABT 

Jade Body Qigong is a wonderful qigong form from the Liu family which focuses on the health of the entire spine.  Movements are based on those of cranes, turtles, and even dragons.  Anyone with adrenal burnout, spine pain, sleep disorders, or emotional instability would benefit from this form of qigong as the heart and kidneys get strengthened.  The form takes about 30 minutes to do on your own.  Classes run one hour to incorporate questions or additional meditation. 
If you are interested in learning this form, please reply to this email with your preferred days and times. 
Activate your DNA for Health and Happiness
A workshop with Lindy Ferrigno, CI (AOBTA), ABT Dipl. NCCAOM, LMT 

Lindy Ferrigno has practiced Shiatsu in the United States and Europe since 1975.  She studied with Japanese masters both here and abroad, and holds a Diplomate of Asian Bodywork Therapy (NCCAOM).  Lindy is nationally recognized for her skills as a teacher of Shiatsu.  She is a certified instructor of the AOBTA and established Shiatsu programs at acupuncture colleges, community colleges, and massage schools in five states, including the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.  She also brings to bear a broad perspective in the therapeutic arts gained from training in the indigenous medicines of the Celtic, Cherokee and Shinto healing traditions, as well as understudying with osteopaths, acupuncturists and chiropractors.  Lindy practiced in New York, Munich, Germany and Portland, OR before moving to Charlottesville, VA, where she now lives.
In this workshop, Lindy will give you information about the physical DNA and its virtual counterparts.  She will then guide you into Beta and Theta brainwave states from which you will learn to command the activation of your DNA's potential on all levels of being.  This process may be done sitting in chairs or lying down.  Therefore, we invite all levels of mobility and flexibility to participate.
DNA holds the Divine Blueprint of perfection within us.  It monitors and manages the growth, repair, rejuvenation and termination of every cell in the body.  It is the regulator and timekeeper of each cell's biological clock.  DNA Activation returns purity and health to every cell in your body.
- Improved health; strengthened immune system; better sleep patterns; more energy

Practitioners of Quantum Shiatsu will find this personal experience of DNA Activation beneficial in their further studies with Pauline Sasaki.
