Eight Pieces of The Silk Brocade
Saturday and Sunday 27th & 28th November, 7.30am – 4pm GMT each day
“…thousands of illnesses vanish into dust.” – the last line of the Eight Pieces of Brocade poem.Also known as “Ba Duan Jin,” The practice was developed by General Yue Fei about 1000 years ago in China. It was originally created to help warriors become stronger and heal for battle, but soldiers soon realised that it was effective far beyond the battlefield. Not only did the practice give the soldiers greater physical strength, but it increased their focus, resilience, and sense of internal peace. The practice contains eight separate movements (or pieces) that practitioners use to work with various energies and meridians. It can be completed in 15 minutes. The eight movements help you redirect and protect yourself from negative or toxic energies that come your way… so you can maintain peace of mind even in the face of negativity and stress. .
In this weekend workshop exploring the “Eight Pieces of the Silk Brocade” Qigong Practice you’ll learn
- How to Activate Your Qi,

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.
