Metal Element Workshop With Lorraine Hughes: Releasing Negativity

Lorraine Hughes

Lorraine Hughes, a registered herbalist and certified qigong instructor, will facilitate a Five Element Workshop focusing on the metal element, on September 24 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Dutchess Yoga, in Poughkeepsie.

“We will be integrating the energetics of the autumnal shift within ourselves through the Taoist phase (element) of metal,” says Hughes, owner of Empowered by Nature. “The lung and large intestine are governed by this seasonal cycle. We will explore this metal phase of the five phases through breath, movement and interactive lecture. We are able to be inspired only if we can let go of what does not serve us anymore from the past.”

According to Hughes, participants will benefit from the workshop because they will become more aware and in tune with who they are and how they feel in their bodies. In turn, this will optimize their journey on a more self-realized, authentic path.

Participants will be given a five element self-assessment test as a way to connect with their dominant element(s), says Hughes, who went on to stress the importance of the timeliness of this workshop. “In autumn, it is essential to ascertain what is most precious in our lives before we enter the deep yin time of winter.”

Cost: $35. Location: Dutchess Yoga, 1820 Rte. 376, Poughkeepsie, NY. Written registration is required. Text Hughes at 845.416.4598 or email her at [email protected]. For more information, visit
