Eastcott Weekend Workshops
14-15 July and 22-23 September

Two weekend workshops where we'll work on accessing earth energy and solar energy to increase personal chi. We'll use various chi gung exercises, meditations and work outdoors.

At the July weekend I will introduce the primary 'conscious connection' that I usually only use in private sessions for healing and in developing individual consciousness.  If there's time we will start to investigate the nature of change and how consciousness evolves.

During the September workshop we will take the same process a bit further to look at the inhibitions that we impose on ourselves and how to consciously overcome them or adapt to inevitable change. We will investigate the cycles of change which affect us through what I call the dynamic of ‘fix and flux’.

A chi gung practice we can use to examine these themes is The Marriage of Heaven and Earth (from Bruce Frantzis).  I may teach this set at Eastcott in July/September, and am considering focusing on it at a third Eastcott workshop - perhaps just for a day - in November.  (Details to be announced).

Each workshop will be a complete experience and you don’t have to have been in July to attend in September or November.  But anyone who comes to all these Eastcott events will in effect be taking an ongoing course. (This plan substitutes for the four or five day chi gung retreat at Eastcott which I previously announced would take place in November.)

Circle

Eastcott Retreat

You can turn a weekend workshop into a longer retreat by staying more than one night. I will include a private session on Friday or on Monday for anyone who wants to dedicate more time for themselves. 

Eastcott is a peaceful place, poised on the side of a Devon valley. At my Eastcott events you can take a path down into yourself and discover new energy and personal resources. It's not just about learning some chi gung movements. You benefit from giving more time to the process.

A breakdown of standard retreat charges is here


Finland 2012


'I use chi gung to introduce a more conscious way of living. I teach ways of connecting with the real you — an intelligence, a power, a love shining. It is always there for you to know it and be it. All you have to do is make that conscious connection . . .'



August 25-26 : Weekend Workshop : Majvik

How to bring more life to your body and more clarity to your life.


We need to engage new energy to work with ‘conscious connections’. Practising chi gung produces the necessary vitality and stillness of mind. This weekend we will start to unlock the real you.

We will learn shibashi taichi and make the essential conscious connection from within your body to the power of the sun and the earth.

The 18 movements of shibashi taichi are relatively easy to learn and are designed to stimulate and distribute chi throughout the body. They are suitable for all ages and varying degrees of fitness and can be adapted and done seated if you have limited mobility. You should be able to go away from this course able to do most if not all of the exercises at home. You will get increasing benefit from daily practice (10 to 20 minutes) and right from the start you may be surprised by the impact that these gentle exercises can have on you.

I will also be talking about the ancient knowledge revealed in chi gung and why it is so relevant to the evolution of consciousness now. I will pass on some of the discoveries I have made through my own practice about the essential principles we need to apply in our lives if we are to participate in the ‘bigger picture’ of life on earth.

This is a two-day residential workshop at Congress Hotel Majvik, an excellent venue in wooded grounds on the shore near Espoo.

31 August - 2 September : Residential Course

Learn Dragon and Tiger Chi Gung : Connect with Change

 

Dragon And Tiger is a form of medical chi gung introduced to the West by the American Chi Gung Master Bruce Frantzis. Its seven movements stimulate the passage of chi in specific ways through the legs, arms and torso to disperse stagnant energy and free blockages and tensions.  Long-term practice develops flexibility and  agility - Dragon chi - combined with the grounded presence and power of Tiger energy.

I teach Dragon and Tiger after shibashi because you will benefit more from it if you already know what it is to raise your own chi. With Dragon and Tiger we can more consciously use the chi for self-healing.

This is a three-day course and continues the series of events held at the Sopukka Centre over the last three years.  Over that time we have investigated the two hemispheres of being, the three phases of energy, the five dynamics of consciousness and the eight energetic impulses of nature. The background to this has been an exploration of the way intelligence enters matter to generate consciousness; and I have touched on the way that our perception of change is vital to this process. All this has unfolded as we went along. It seems likely now that we can make a more profound connection with change, with what is changing at any time.  It is not hard to predict that humanity will soon be driven to adapt to the changes that are coming to the earth. Can we change ourselves consciously? Can we somehow facilitate a beneficial mutation of the human brain? Is it possible for there to be a collective change in the human condition?

This residential course will again be held at the Sopukka Centre.
