At Ease in Mind and Body: An introduction to qigong

Teacher: Paul Dorrian
Cost: 2 days accommodation + R200 surcharge
Dates: Friday 19 November 2021 - Sunday 21 November 2021

paul dorrianQigong 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 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 peace and tranquillity.
