Five Element Qigong & Meditation Weekend

Saturday and Sunday 24th & 25th July 7.30am – 4pm BST each day: Summer

The Five Element Qigong Form is a like having a helpful a map of our bodies, hearts and minds. It helps us to tune into the cycles of nature and mirror the movements, sounds, colours and energy of the natural world: its spirals, strength and fluidity. Being in synch with the natural changes of the seasons is healing. When we resist its movements we suffer, mentally and physically. In Chinese Medicine the primary focus is on the mind and the emotions and how imbalances there affect the physical body.
 
Qigong is a subtle form of health care, enabling us to practice preventative medicine, as opposed to sick care.
 

This is the fourth of a series of weekends based on the changes of the seasons. Now we move into summer. the element associated with this season is Fire. Fire is the place of the heart, the physical form of the heart and the energetic aspect: our emotions. During the weekend we will practice Qigong postures that help to strengthen the support for the heart, both physically and emotionally, and meditations to soothe and connect to the unlimited potential for loving kindness, joy and compassion of our hearts.

Qigong mirrors the flow of nature, keeping us connected to our source. Now is a great time to enliven and awaken our energy, celebrating our physical, energetic and spiritual bodies. Summer is the time of soothing our wounded and vulnerable hearts, establishing protection for them and allowing our infinite capacity for compassion, loving kindness and joy to flourish.

 
Come for both days – best – or either the Saturday or Sunday.

The practices of both Qigong and meditation go towards building our Wei Qi, or protective energy, our immune system. By tapping into the wisdom held in these Qigong practices we can utilise our energy sources and convert lethargy into vitality, depression into cheerfulness.
