Five day retreat (over the Easter period)
Wed 28th March – Mon 2nd April
led by Yasokaruna, Tai Chi and Qi Gong practitioner
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller
You need to feel your heart energy with the whole of your being. To help us come into a more direct experience of our whole being, including the heart, we will be working with Qi Gong movements and the stillness of meditation.
Qi Gong movements work with the physical body and the energetic body. Grounded in our physical body we can work to release blockages in our meridians and allow energy to flow freely within, and into and out of, the body.
We cannot force this kind of relationship and it’s particularly true with the heart. Creating space and a sense of openness we can allow the heart to reveal itself. This is also a beautiful practice in ksanti, patience.
Setting up the most supportive conditions for ourselves is important. Please feel free to bring along any readings, poems, photos, drawings etc. that hold a heart connection for you.
The movements of Qi Gong are suitable for everyone and can easily be adapted where needed. No previous experience necessary.
