Event description

Description

In this 3-day silent retreat, we blend qi gong with sitting and walking mindfulness meditation, taking the time to pay attention to our actual experience as we sit and as we move. When we do this we feel more open, grounded and alive. No matter what is going on in our life, in our thoughts, or bodies, mindfulness offers the opportunity to genuinely relax and let go. The retreat is suitable for beginners and for those experienced in mindfulness and/or qi gong.

Qi gong is designed to improve the flow of energy (qi) in the body, create vitality and concentrate the mind. The qi gong practices we will practice include qi gong warm ups, qi self-massage, a beautiful moving form, the six Taoist healing sounds, and more. These will be practices you can take away and use at home to relax and vitalise your body and mind.

We will begin each morning with stretches and meditation before breakfast, and finish each evening with a qi gong "sounds" practice to relax the organs of the body and to prepare for sleep. There will be time out for reflection, walking, writing and resting. The meals are vegetarian.

When you buy a ticket you will automatically receive the link to a page welcoming you and giving you more information about the retreat. If for some reason you don't receive this, please e-mail me on rachel@theartofmindfulness.co.nz
