The workshops in Chi Kung are an ongoing series that interested participants can enter at any point. The workshops can either be attended individually or as a whole series.
The overall intention of the workshops is to present Chi Kung as a way to open up to a deeper and richer connection to the life force within the human system and within Nature. In particular to listen and be aware of the subtle power of your health and become more aware of movements of Chi within your body and mind.
The workshops will teach the following skills:
A series of 10 workshops is offered as four day intensives covering a range of foundational material that represent a grounding in Elemental Chi Kung. Students are encouraged to practice daily and to study some of the basic literature in the field in order to gain a comprehensive knowledge of Chi Kung.
Each day will run from 10-5 and the last day 10-4 with a lunch and tea breaks. The day will be mostly experiential work following a series of Chi Kung forms and exploring the different aspects of the workshop theme
For those students wishing to deepen their knowledge of Chi Kung there will be some guided learning to study between workshops and for those wishing to teach, an additional set of studies along with supervision during the workshops.
