Cancelled Due To Covid

Due to the on-going unpredictable nature of these times during Covid, I have regrettably cancelled the course for this year. The course will run in 2022 instead. Please feel free to email me at: johannah@iyashi.com.au to express interest for next years course or other smaller one day or online training offerings I might organise for this year.

The Complement Channels

A Sacred Circle Experience

The Jade Purity School of Daoism stretches back 88 generations, right back to the beginning, right back into the source of our medicine- Daoism. Acupuncture is a spiritual practice, a practice that helps us heal the spirit.

The intention of this course is to help us connect back to the roots of this lineage, to connect back into ourselves, our own inner wisdom and each other. To manifest these intentions, the course will be facilitated through in-person Sacred Circle.

If Covid happens to restrict us gathering in-person the course will move online via Zoom, but still held in sacred circle.

Sacred Circle creates a sacred container where we come together as equals to learn, grow and share.



If Covid Restrictions mean we can’t meet in person for a Workshop, I will refund 100% cost of that workshop back to you. If you are on a payment plan a fifth the total cost of that plan will be deducted from the total. All workshops apart from the Pulse workshop will be transferred online and partial refund will be given.
