Workshop Announcement

This month I will be teaching in a workshop on aromatherapy and astrology.  I am very happy with this opportunity that I am going to meet lots of new friends who share similar interests.  It is going to be an interactive workshop where I will give a presentation on an introduction to astrology with focus on the Sun sign, the signature oil of each sign and the safety use of essential oils.  After that I will comment on individual participant’s birth chart, recommend a blend of essential oil that they can DIY during the workshop and take back to their home.

The workshop will take place on Friday evening, 17th March in JGO Holistic Aromatherapy and Heath School.  Registration can be done here.  If you are living in Hong Kong, I very much look forward to seeing you!

The Spiritual Significance of Fire Rooster

Time flies.  I am lucky enough to be living in the part of the World where we celebrate both Western and Chinese new year.  Since Christmas last year my mind and body has been flying, enjoying the bliss of dissonance away from my day job.  Just like I am there and I am not really there.  It has been a good 2 months of trance state.  Chinese New Year to me marks the practical start of the year.  At this time all business is at rest.  Interestingly when Chinese factories cease production the rest of the world seem to just have to wait – like it or not. Let’s all have a short break, it is nutritious for our soul.

Rooster is a very popular spiritual symbol in Chinese culture.  The Rooster Spirit chases away evil spirits.  We assign the Rooster as a sign of the five important social and relationship virtues –  courage, kindness, responsibility, loyalty and confidence.

Roosters are the timekeepers of our world.  The dependability of Rooster at dawn gives the additional meaning of punctuality and constancy.  It is said that self-empowerment begins with the first brave step into the dawning of a new day.  At dawn, the awakening Rooster gives us hope, alertness and freshness for the day.

 

Goodbye 2016.  The past is the past.  It doesn’t matter anymore.  May the year of the Fire Rooster bring you the radiant presence of the Divine.   Wish you a prosperous, peaceful and happy 2017!
