The first workshops of the year are open to new students, the group then closes for the rest of the year. Individual guidance will be offered to help you develop your own practice with some specific suggested homework. These groups support you to deepen your experience and understanding of Hua Gong Qigong through the exploration of the following aspects of Qigong practice:
Self Healing Form – waking up the circulation of Qi internally
Qi Ball – connecting, creating, moving with, dissolving into
Three Dantiens – cultivating the energy in our belly, heart and brain centres
Connecting to Earth, Sky and Human
Jing, Qi, Shen – the three aspects of energy and how to connect to them
Digestive Qigong – clearing and charging up the digestive organs
Central Channel – connecting and opening
Qi Field – sensing, clarifying, waking up
Sound and Mantra – to amplify the Qi
Sleeping Qigong – resting, internalising energy
Walking Qigong – strengthening and energising
Generally the mornings focus on cultivating Jing through physical/vigorous Qigong – we will be opening up our sense of grounding, waking up the connection to feet, loosening/freeing up our physical body and releasing stale Qi and ‘old information’. From this sense of being more loosened up, energised and embodied we can begin to develop the ability to connect directly to the subtle Qi energy, both in and around us, this is where we bring together the power of mind and body and learn how to open and let go into energy.
In the afternoon we develop this sense of awareness of body and energy with a more meditative approach, exploring the subtle energy of Qi through digestive Qigong, sitting meditation and standing forms. The meditation practice also helps us collect and open to the more bright and luminous quality of energy, known as Shen, which can be a very liberating experience connecting us to the ‘cosmic’ universal Qi.
Weather permitting we may also practice outside, connecting to the power of nature, trees and river.
