At Ease In Mind And Body: An introduction to qigong (chi kung)

Teacher: Roger O’Neil
Cost: 2 days accommodation + R200 surcharge
Dates: Friday 16 October 2020 - Sunday 18 October 2020

roger o neilQigong (chi kung) is an ancient Chinese practice that boosts one’s health and longevity. Through gentle, slow and flowing movements, it integrates and harmonises one’s bodily functions and states of mind by eliminating static and toxic energy patterns. Qigong (chi kung) strengthens the internal organs and skeletal structure and encourages good posture. In this retreat Paul will teach the Healing Sounds Short Form - a set of gentle exercises that also uses sounds to cleanse and heal our major organs, and which is a lot of fun to practise. He will also teach the ancient Taoist qigong meditation for inner tranquility.
