How would it be to welcome yourself exactly as you are?
This group meets online and is open to new students when we meet in person once again hopefully from June 12th onwards
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.
When it is possible to meet in person the group will open to new students, and meet on monthly Sundays at Ibsley Village Hall, Hampshire, government guidelines permitting.
In person dates at Ibsley Village Hall, near Ringwood, Sundays 10am-5pm, cost £50.
June 13th, July 11th, September 26th, October 31st, November 28th
The group is limited to 12 students in person to help co-create a sense of a strong and safe group field and also allow for specific individual guidance.

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]
