“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 a month in the countryside in the Big Yurt at the Well Being Centre, Stone Cross. Come and join us on  SATURDAY, 18th January, 15th February,14th March 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.

These workshops explore the nature of Qi through the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine.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 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.
