Accommodation for this course cannot be reserved through the Holy Isle web page.

The Qigong & Meditation Retreat Week offers space to breathe deeply, move, stretch and release through Chinese Medical Qigong.The gentle yet powerful movements of Qigong offer a direct and intuitive access to the deep wisdom of the body through which blow the winds of our habits, both emotional and mental. In stillness we immerse ourselves in peaceful mind and loving kindness meditations. Holy Isle will soon become a sanctuary for you and is where Sue spent a year in retreat – and it is somewhere to visit in your mind after returning to the hurly burly of every-day living.

‘Sue, you are such a joyous, inspiring and fun teacher. You gave space for us to find our inner child and find joy in movement. Perfect balance of Qigong and meditation.’

Accompanying us again on this year’s retreat is Shiatsu Practitioner Jenny White, who is offering shiatsu massage to participants to complement their practice in their free time. To reserve your shiatsu time with Jenny click here: Jenny Shiatsu about me. Holy Isle 2017.

The Qi Gong was, and continues to be, revelatory for me.

 As someone who has struggled with a gimpy lower back for years, some of the exercises and movements were reminiscent of what this osteopath or that massage therapist or this chiropractor had offered me before during previous flare-ups.  But I soon realized I was learning a spiritual choreography. An ancient, grounded body-wisdom that re-integrates the natural awareness of the body we have when we are pre-sentient babies with the actual muddled and stressed and overly cerebral body with which most of us go through our adult lives.  I loved it all instantly. 

The week is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. It is a wonderful opportunity to develop mindfulness skills through movement, relaxation and meditation practices that support the beginning or deepening of a life-long spiritual journey.

‘Sue has a rare gift of helping people transform their lives very powerfully and with great grace and dignity.’
