Rubbo Art of Energy is the creative process of cultivating, controlling and expressing energy for the attainment of the profound. Within that, all of the arts can find true expression
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2008
The shift toward environmentally friendly--or "green"--activities is impacting where people are choosing to exercise. Rubbo Art of Energy, based on ancient Asian martial and healing arts with a modern understanding of profound systems of transformation, has offered its classes, workshops and retreats outdoors in parks, sacred sites and power spots since 1980, and has been international since 2003.
"You can fight climate change, get fit, healthy and happy and live an authentic, limitless and fulfilling life with the 'eco-therapy' of Rubbo Art of Energy," says Elizabeth Meloney, Program Director.
Green Exercise refers to physical activities that give participants the benefits not only of exercise but also of direct exposure to nature. A growing body of research shows that interacting with nature can positively impact health and well-being, relieve stress, promote concentration and clear thinking and actually increase happiness.
"Rubbo Art of Energy is the creative process of cultivating, controlling and expressing energy for the attainment of the profound. Within that, all of the arts can find true expression," says president and co-founder Donald Rubbo. "By emphasizing the importance of the mind in effecting change in body, mind and spirit, Rubbo Art of Energy is in the forefront of mind-body medicine."
"Rubbo Art of Energy focuses on transformative learning, the process of becoming mindfully aware of how and why assumptions have come to constrain the way people perceive, understand, and feel about the world; how to change these structures of habitual expectation to allow a more inclusive, discriminating, and integrating perspective; and, finally, making choices or otherwise acting upon these new understandings," says co-founder Cheryl Lynne Rubbo. "We believe that in order for our clients and students to change their meaning structures, beliefs, attitudes, and emotional reactions, they must engage in critical reflection on their experiences, which in turn leads to a transformation of perspective. And we know from scientific and medical research that when this type of work is done outdoors, the positive life-changes are much more profound and longer lasting. "
