Do you struggle to re-emerge in Spring?
Do you feel instead lacklustre, stressed or hopeless?
Do you suffer from hay fever or allergies?
The seasonal shift from Winter's stillness into Spring's re-emergence can for many people be a tricky time in nature’s annual cycle. Join us just after the Spring Equinox to smooth your own energetic transition into this phase of hope, vision and vigorous growth with the help of Qigong and Tibetan Singing Bowls.
As the days lengthen and the natural world emerges from regenerating dormancy and bursts back to life with the vibrant spectacle of Spring, we too expect to feel renewed and rearing to go. But this is often not the case and many people find it hard to get their own motor started again after the cold, damp Winter.
We'll use the beautiful sounds of the Bowls and the movements of Qigong to harmonise any imbalances creating a reluctance to re-emerge, so we can flow smoothly and positively into our own Spring.
Do join us for this evening of relaxing, invigorating and harmonising practice.
Open to all - men and women.
No experience is needed.
What to expect
Qigong - lying and standing movement, breath and focused awareness.
Stillness - to bathe in the sounds of the Tibetan Bowls.
A relaxed, friendly and unintimidating atmosphere.
What to bring
Yourself in comfortable clothes.
Friends (but let us know).
A cushion or small blanket (if you wish, not essential).
Why we run these workshops
These Qigong and Tibetan Bowls workshops happen four times each year (at Solstice and Equinox) to honour and align ourselves with the seasonal shift.
They are run by me together, with sound healer Nick Tischler.
Nick also hosts monthly Tibetan Bowls sound baths at the same venue, often working with healers from other disciplines. See the Self-healing With Sound and Movement Facebook page.
We started the Qigong and Tibetan Bowls sessions because we find that, by bringing together the gentle movements of the ancient Chinese art of Qigong (related to Tai Chi) with the beautiful sounds of Tibetan 'Singing' Bowls, we amplify the deeply healing powers of each.
We wish to share these benefits with other people who are looking for new ways to nurture their own health and wellbeing.
Each of our sessions is a healing moment in itself as we bathe ourselves in sound and movement, which open up energetic blockages as they draw us away from our daily cares towards the sensations of our bodies.
It is also an opportunity to deepen our understanding of how to use sound and movement to self-heal at home.
Points to note:
- You can do the Qigong movements sitting on a chair, if standing for long periods or getting down on the floor is a problem for you.
