Workshop with Nick Strack
This workshop provides an opportunity to learn how movement and breath unite as Mind becomes still, and how Life Force (Qi) can be experienced and directed within the body through Mindful Presence and Calm Abiding in stillness and movement.
We will learn and use the well-known 18 Movement Tai Chi QiGong Form which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Relaxing into the repetitive movements, the body extends and withdraws in harmony with the breath. This is a wonderful form for paying mindful attention to the flow of the body, the flow of the breath and the flow of energy (Qi).
The Breath will be linked to our experience of Be-ing within the body. Using the practice of Deep Relaxation we “breathe” into parts of the Body, using our capacity for curious attention and inner kindness to hold and heal. Each part is honoured and appreciated. Stale energy is released and bright, fresh energy flows in.
Heaven and Earth Chi Kung unites the inner realm of the body with the outer field of Creation, principally the Earth and the Sun, the field of earth and water and the sweep of the Stars. All are brought together in a series of simple movements united with breath as your relationship with the Earth and the Stars, embedded in the body, brings light and joy singing within the realm of Calm Heart and Still Mind.
We finish with a Group Healing Meditation offered for all beings. You will find that all you have done in the Workshop is directed to this one end of compassionate abiding.
