About the Event
This retreat is offered to explore and experience Qi Gong in nature and deepen into meditation. We will learn to develop our ability to sense and nourish Qi, to witness our movements and deepen into the expression of Qi. A beautiful short Tai Chi form connecting to heaven and earth will be taught.
Qi Gong is a way to improve and maintain health. It is a form of exercise and vital part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its roots go back thousands of years; and different practices have developed according to the needs of times.
Until early 1900 Qi Gong exercises have been kept secret in China. Now various styles are taught openly worldwide, and research has confirmed its many benefits. Regular Qi Gong practise can support our wellbeing and health, and help to overcome anxiety and stress of daily living.
The course content:
- Standing and moving Qi Gong - (various sets: ShiBaShi, 8 Brokades …)
- Enhancing our ability to sense, build and harmonise Qi
- Gather and nourish Qi
- Practice free flow of Qi
- Enhance peace and calm from within
- Four direction Tai Chi (short form)
- Going inwards - sitting meditation
All levels of experience welcome.
