Qigong for meditation workshop:

Through sitting, standing and mindful movements, we learn how to align the body to promote a relaxed alert state, regulate and calm the mind, meet and let go of blockages to presence and connect with emptiness. When we reach a ‘Qi state’ we are fully present, connected and receptive to our spiritual potential. We take this into our sitting meditation to deepen our awareness of our true nature.
These workshops are intended to gives us more time than a weekly class to explore principles of Qigong, try out some exercises, whilst still having time to generate a lot of Qi and meditate with it.

The workshops were initially intended to be day retreats, but as we are still online I am keeping them to 3 hours with a tea break.

What is Qigong 


Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of healing and energy medicine. Qigong is a powerful healing art that involves gentle movements, meditation and breathing techniques to cleanse, circulate, strengthen and ground our life energy.

It works with the flow of Qi (or Chi) our "life force" or "life energy" for healing purposes, purposefully working with the Qi flow so as to restore a healthier balance within and between the different functions of the body.
Qigong is one of the most effective self-healing method in the world; it is easy to learn, the only investment needed is time and the beneficial effects are cumulative.

Qigong originated in China thousands of years ago from shamanism, Taoism and Buddhism, traditional Chinese medicine and has close links with Martial arts and tai chi.


What it means

Qi means ‘vital energy’, ‘breath’ or ‘life force’. It's a concept from traditional Chinese culture. 
Gong means cultivation or mastery. 
Qigong therefore could be translated as ‘cultivation of vital energy’ or ‘mastery of your energy’.
