ONLINE CLASS Qi Gong with Richard - Mon 1st June

The focus in this class is on sequences of postures and movements. These include more general forms such as the popular Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi, but also sequences relating to the development and health of particular aspects and parts of the body. It is not necessary to memorise the movements.

Through the regulation of body, breath and mind, Qigong practice promotes harmony of the The Three Treasures (essence, vitality and spirit) and so cultivates a deep sense of calm connectedness.

You can join Richard for this class via the Zoom app, which you can use on your computer/laptop or tablet. You will be sent the link once you have booked.

ONLINE WORKSHOP: Wood and Vessels: A Qigong Workshop - Sun 14 June 2020

This will be a workshop of two (closely related) halves. In the first half we will explore a sequence of movements and standing postures known as ‘Refinement Through the Element of Wood’. This is a study of our form in space. In the Daoist system the body is seen as consisting of five different complementary aspects, corresponding to the Five Elements. The Element of Wood relates to our physical and energetic form and structure. The focus will be on the major joints of the body, in Daoist alchemy referred to as ‘external vessels’: areas of the body where energy can collect, gather and transform.

In the second half we will look at a sequence related to the art of Baguazhang (Eight Trigram Palm), in which the focus shifts to organising movement in relationship with the lower dan tien and the body's axes.

These meditative sequences and poses are excellent for strengthening the joints, improving posture and “harmonising the Three Treasures” (jing, qi and shen). No previous experience of qigong necessary.

There will be a break for refreshments.
