Qi Gong with Hedwig
December 1 @ 4:00 pm - December 3 @ 2:00 pm$340.00 – $570.00
Join Hedwig for a weekend of Qi Gong and Meditation
Qi Gong (pronounced: chi kung) is an ancient Chinese practice of working with your internal energy, your aliveness.
Through gentle movement, standing postures, breath work and meditation you can uncover and skillfully work with your inner resources for health, vitality, strength, flexibility, joy, happiness, well-being, connection, fulfilment.
Within every one of us is a place that is full of energy, health, and happiness. This is our natural state, but we so often lose touch with it in our busy, distracted lives. However, a visit to this place of inner vitality and harmony every day, even through a brief Qi Gong practice allows us access to a higher level of energy. We then need less external things and feel more self-empowered that comes from inside of us.
Qi Gong has a strong connection with the natural world. We will tap into source energy from the earth, nature and the universe to cultivate more internal energy, elevate our emotions, create a calm, clear, intuitive mind, and a vibrant body full of energy.
What to expect:
- Learn about some foundational principles of energy and the essential principles of practice.
- We will practice during sessions of Qi Gong, breath work, walking meditation & sitting meditation
- Experience how powerful and joyful it is to practice together with others
- Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Mana Retreat centre with its supportive staff, nourishing meals, bush walks and stunning views.
