Conscious Connections with Clive Tempest


Crowcombe Court Winter Retreat 2018

The Perception of Chi : The Connection

Crowcombe Court, The Quantocks, Somerset, UK
Weekend Workshop 3 4 February 2018

Two winter days in the grand setting of a Georgian mansion in lovely grounds at the foot of the Quantock hills. You can come as a day visitor or you can stay from Friday to Monday either in the South Wing apartments or in one of the luxurious suites in the main house.

There will be chi gung and nei gung exercises, talks and dialogues to develop a finer perception of chi and use it to integrate the physical and the psychic in you. The purpose of making a conscious connection with your own chi is to overcome the psychological factors that cause you to feel alienated from others, separated or divided in yourself. Through perceiving the field of chi that you inhabit, you discover your sixth sense. You make the connection to the true individual that you are and then consciously connect with the presence and love of others.

The first stage in developing the perception of chi is identifying it in your own body and in your energetic field. The second stage comes with the realisation that you're not just perceiving chi but it is the chi that is doing the perceiving. Finally, the connection is made between your chi and universal chi, your inner space and outer space.
