This page updates seasonally to show only the next upcoming session)
Do you suffer from coughs, colds and Lung problems?
Do you crave some time to be quiet, to pause and reflect?
Is the past a source of sorrow, not of inspiration?
As nature dims her Summer lights, this evening of Qigong and Tibetan Bowls will help you to embrace Autumn's energy of stepping back from the busy noise of life to pause, catch your breath and reflect.
At this time of year, nature's inward-drawing calls us human beings too to turn away from the expansive abundance of Summer and to look back with self-honesty at the past.
Only if we make this time to reflect, can we discover the precious lessons of what has gone, however painful. And have the chance to refine our lives back to what truly belongs to us, shedding what does not.
Thus - with our life ever-more aligned with who we really are - we sow the seeds for a more abundant future as nature's seasonal cycle continues to turn.
This evening of movement and sound will shift our focus from the Summer's Heart to our Lungs, where Autumn's energy of refinement, of sorting the pure from the impure, is felt most strongly within us.
If your Lungs don't eliminate well, they get congested and you end up suffering coughs and colds, losing vitality and may find yourself wallowing in heavy, constricting feelings of sadness and sorrow.
Our Autumnal Qigong practice - aided by the resonance of the Tibetan Bowls - will help to clear and strengthen your Lungs. Able to breathe freely without collapse, you can then enjoy Autumn's inward-turning as a gently supportive hug and fully reap the benefits of this precious season.
Do join us for this evening of relaxing and harmonising practice.
Open to all - men and women of all ages.
No experience is needed.
What to expect:
Qigong - gentle 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, small blanket (if you like, but not essential).
About 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.
- Doors will close at 7.30pm, so please arrive in good time.
- If you are paying in cash, please bring the right change. And don't forget to pay.
- Please sign your name in the book (even if you have been before). Thanks.
