Event description

Description

Replenish your reserves with a three-day residential mindfulness and qi gong retreat

Mindfulness, the art of accessing the power of the 'now', is a wonderful means of calming your body, stilling your mind and cultivating joy and wellbeing. So, if you have the tendency to lose yourself in stress, overwork or over-thinking, or would simply relish time for balance and restoration, join me at the lovely Aio Wira centre for a blend of mindfulness meditation and qi gong practices centred around the theme of self-compassion. Qi gong is a wonderful Taoist system designed to improve the flow of energy in the body, create vitality and concentrate the mind. There will be time out for reflection and walks in the beautiful native bush as well as delicious vegetarian meals and access to a sauna and spa.

We will begin each morning with stretches and meditation before breakfast, and finish each evening with a qi gong "healing sounds" practice to relax the organs of the body and to prepare for sleep. There will be time out for reflection and to walk the beautiful native bush tracks, as well as lovely vegetarian meals.

Please note that, for participants, this is a mostly silent retreat, apart from the first evening, the last morning, and an hour's circle discussion each day.

The retreat is suitable for those with or without experience of mindfulness or qi gong.
