Hi <<First Name>>,
A reminder to join our Thursday Meditation and Chat this evening 7-8pm Pacific Time. Zoom info is included below.
For today's chat, I will be introducing a healing technique from Chinese Medicine: Sun Moxa (or Heavenly Moxa 天灸). This is best done on Summer Solstice at noon in full sun (or the closest date and time available), and involves laying on your stomach with your back covered with loose moxa (not burning). This treatment prevents winter diseases - particularly those caused by cold elements - by tonifying the body with yang qi and warmth from the summer.
Those of you who read Chinese can access the original text by Dr. Qu Limin on this topic here:

If you are interested in learning about this and possibly try it yourself, have your pen and paper (or other note-taking device) ready!
