THE PURPOSE OF THE RETREAT
As we have all been affected by the disruptive influence of the Covid pandemic of 2020, this retreat will focus on the health benefits gained from practicing Qi cultivation.
Within the Ziran Qigong system are practices to cultivate, harmonise and strengthen the Qi.
This retreat is an opportunity to gain greater awareness of your body, health and capabilities:
With continual practice, this will bring balance and wellbeing as your body, mind and spirit are harmonised.
- Develop a deeper awareness and sensitivity of Qi and its presence - initial training in Qigong is about sensing Qi.
- Cultivate Qi - further training increases the volume of Qi clearing the pathways and channels through which it moves.
- Potentially harness and use Qi - when levels of Qi and the controls on its functions become high enough an awakening of movement through the body ensues.
During the retreat, you will be guided through movement and form practice to gain an experience and understanding of Qi.
Each days activities will focus on physical training for the body and somatic exercises to still the mind to create a strong connection with heaven Tiān (天) and earth Dì (地).
