The Nine Palaces correspond to nine areas of our lives which are:
Each Palace also corresponds to a different element in the Five Element system. By exploring each Palace in relationship to our lives we may have a little bit more understanding about our life’s purpose.
During the afternoon we will delve into this fascinating subject with the aid of Visualisations, Meditations & Yin Yoga shapes.
