Let food be your ally 5-part course to make better food choices using Yin and Yang and the Five Elements. By observing Nature, the ancient Taoist sages developed systems to align what is inside (e.g. our bodies) with what is outside (e.g. the universe around us). Through this process of becoming so harmonious with the Universe and its rhythms, they came to realise how much we all are Nature's own sons and daughters, with full rights to exist when and where we are, like the trees in the forest or the fish in the sea. All of these creatures are not busy conquering the world, manipulating others or trying to rationalise all they can see or feel. They are simply, being trees and being fish. By reconnecting with a life that is aligned with the rhythms of the Universe (the seasons, day and night cycles, moon cycles, etc) we too can get closer to just being Human, allowing for the expression of the wonder of love, empathy, awe and kindness, as well as cognition, thought, social connectedness and introspection. All of this is made easier if our biochemistry - namely through food - is supporting our human journeys rather than adding resistance, rigidity or inflammation. In this 5-part course, we will explore: — The Yin & Yang way to nutrition — What are the best foods for our individual body type — Food Yin & Yang in our day-to-day Western diet — Introduction to the Chinese Five Elements as a way to make better food choices When integrated in our lives, these ancient and pragmatic ways enable you to: * Embrace the patterns in your life right now and learn to dance with them, rather than forcing yourself on them (through opposition or neediness). * How to strengthen the patterns that nourish you. * How to reverse patterns that are unhelpful to your development … through food, lifestyle, habits, thoughts, practices and even what language you use when you talk to others and, more importantly, how you talk to yourself. "Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny." — attributed to Lao-Tse, a Taoist sage from 2,500 years ago. This is the basis of all my work, which I offer to you in this course. Who is this course for? Anyone who wants to eat and live more deliberately, in greater harmony, and is looking for tools to do so. No prior knowledge of Taoism, Traditional Chinese Medicine or oriental philosophy is required.

I have had health problems lately. My skin is dry and cracked. The cosmetics didn't work. Can your service improve my health?

Thanks for your question Marc. Yes, recipes are provided. Still, this is not a cooking course, but instead focuses on our relationship with food, how to navigate ingredients and our lifestyle, while having a system to develop greater awareness of our body and surroundings to make better, more harmonious choices.

This course serves, not to prevent or cure, but to provide you with tools to have a more harmonious relationship with food and make better choices for yourself. Of course, a more harmonious diet is well known to support our complete well-being.

Hello. Could you please tell me if your course includes recipes? Cooking is something difficult for me, so it's easier to rely on recipes.

Healing your gut can help prevent skin problems, but I'm also curious to know if this method can. Please let us know. Thanks
