Exploring the Wood element through Movement, Meditation and the Magic of Touch with Nick Neter and Louise Burt

Saturday, 27th April 3.30-6.00 pm

This is a new series of workshops exploring the 5 elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine through movement, meditation, breathwork, art  and touch.In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), five elements or five phases theory outlines the relationship between the different elements in nature and the life force, or “qi,” that flows through them. The five elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

The intention is to have a better understanding of each element as it occurs in nature during the year and how that  works in our bodies, hearts and minds. Using Qigong, Shiatsu, Meditation, Breath and Art work, we shall explore the channels that correspond to each element and learn simple shiatsu techniques to enable each participant to give a basic treatment affecting those channels.

The primal strength of the urge to live and grow is the characteristic of the Wood Element.In this workshop we shall be working with the channels of the Wood element the Liver and Gall Bladder, with emphasis on our life direction, the quality of our touch, the distribution of Ki throughout the body, the quality of the Hun (the ethereal soul of the Liver) and the emotion of anger.

Places are limited to 8 people and the investment is £30. We ask for payment in advance to secure your place.

        “Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” Osho

These workshops are proving very popular and are a joy for me to teach. I  now run these workshops once every two months in the countryside in the Big Yurt at the Well Being Centre, Stone Cross. Come and join us on SATURDAY, 11th May, 13th July,14th September from 3.30 – 5.30pm in the Big Yurt at the Well Being Centre, Stone Cross. We shall be exploring the power of the breath through gentle, flowing movements and stillness, connecting with our own energy and that of nature.

The ancient art of Qigong , derived from the Chinese “qi” and “gong” means working with the life force to develop vitality, strength, and wellbeing, is also a path to greater self awareness and understanding of our true nature.
Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and can be done by people of all faith traditions. With the practice of meditation the mind settles and a sense of ease, tranquility and joy arise. This can  lead to insight and wisdom.

There is tea and cake to share afterwards and  you are very welcome to bring something to share. Investment: £18.00. To book a place please contact Nick Neter on 07773061309 or email handswork@tiscali.co.uk. A non returnable deposit of £18 is requested to secure your place.
