How would it be to welcome yourself exactly as you are?
South Brent Village Hall, Devon
Saturdays October 30th, November 27th
10am-5pm, £60 per workshop
The group is open to new students to join and will close in January for the year. It is limited to 15 students to help co-create a sense of a strong and safe group field and also to allow for specific individual guidance. There are a few places available.
This is a retreat level exploration through the practices of Enquiry, Qigong and Meditation; a radical embracing of all aspects of ourself, the parts we like and the parts our mind judges as unacceptable. We are invited to welcome each moment just as it is, resting in our essential nature, opening to the power of life and living this in the ordinariness of our every day life.

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.
The practice of Enquiry in pairs explores various themes arising from our practice within an environment of Presence, stillness, and curiosity, helping us to integrate the depths of our being with the ordinariness of everyday life.
Weather permitting we may also practice outside, connecting to the power of nature.[divider]
