14 days Qi gong retreat journey to Ubud, the mountains and ocean in Bali.
About the course and what you’ll learn and take away:
The Qi Gong that I teach is an easy to learn form of wholesome, deep, integrative meditative body work. It includes important elements to strengthen, balance and heal the human body/mind and our connection to the world. Qi Gong, the skill to work with and cultivate Life-energy, is an art that has developed and refined over 1000s of years and was proven many times scientifically for its power and many-fold benefits physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
I and people experience this as an awakening and resourcing tool and as great help in dealing with modern challenges and overcoming the alienation from nature, ourselves and others.
I would like people to have done at least 10 Yoga or Qi Gong classes and have a readiness to also engage in communicative practices that will help process and ground the work we are doing.
To give people a natural, positive and highly effective learning experience is very near to my heart, and I indeed see it as a gift and my vocation.
In this time you will learn and deepen:
- how to build your life-energy
- cultivate your deeper and higher states of being in an embodied way
- find a natural, healthy and strong posture and alignment
- get a more down to earth understanding of awareness, healing and energetics
- experience many facets of modern Qi Gong in a very daily life oriented and applicable way
- find and develop your hidden potentials
- instead of losing it, find a strong connection to your own energy and many ways to keep building it
- find more emotional clarity and long lasting well-being
- learn to bring Qi Gong, and more clarity and connection into your relations
There will be daily morning and evening practice sessions with parts in nature and parts in the Shala. Including a healthy mix of various meditation styles and cultivating free states of mind and heart, movement and wholesome energy work.
You may as many people enjoy the optional into sunrise meditation.
This course will uniquely weave together different Qi Gong modalities ,elements of Tai Ji and Yoga, and 3 Body work (engaging and integrating our physical,energetic and awareness planes), and communication tools and surprises like water practices and more.
This will be a ride of a creative and healthy process together and people report they love the surprising sense of trust they get in themselves and their experience.
