Colour- Meditation-Chi Kung/Qi Gong Classes.

Elemental Chi Kung is a progressive approach to chi kung that incorporates classic styles and philosophies with modern bodymind and energy concepts. The approach explores body and Chi awareness as a way to deepen into our internal Chi flow through movement, stillness, meditation, and breath. A creative space is sought to allow our essential nature to express itself and bring about transformation. The approach emphasizes the five elements as the foundations of Chi Kung.

Chi Kung is an ancient Chinese form of movement exercise that promotes the flow of Chi (vital energy) through the body.
It translates as ‘energy work’ in English and comprises exercises for stretching and mobilising the body and joints, breathing techniques, slow movement exercises, static postures, special walking methods and meditation. With time and dedicated practice an easy and effortless quality emerges.

Chi is the body’s vital energy which Chi Kung builds up to establish a physiological and psychological harmony. Most of the theory behind Chi Kung is common to Chinese Medicine with which it has a traditional link. Chi Kung is also associated with Taoist and Buddhist philosophies and practices, particularly Taoist.

Chi Kung generally does not have complex ‘forms’. Chi Kung movements are simple. Each action aims to move Chi in a specific way. The movements often take their inspiration from the movement of animals and nature and can look quite beautiful. Sometimes the movements follow energy channels in the body and sometimes they orient around internal organs or parts of the body. The aim in all the movements is to increase the flow of Chi through the mind and body.

(Ged Sumner.”You are how you move”.)

Chi Kung is a graceful and ancient system of maintaining one’s mind, body and spirit. 

……………………………………………………………….

 Chi Kung/Tai Chi application in daily life: Once we learn how to be grounded, relaxed and fluid in dealing with external physical forces in our practice, we can apply these principles to help us overcome negative inner forces, addictions and weaknesses by being grounded, relaxed, fluid and powerful

In the beginners course, emphasis will be on the alignment of the bones, pelvic rotation and movement, arms, legs and feet placement. As the students progresses, they will  have a deeper understanding of Meditiation, Chi Kung /Tai Chi principles and movements.

Practice equipment: Tai chi and Chi Kung does not require special equipment. Clothing should be comfortable and lose enough to allow free range of motion. When practicing on concrete floors, wearing shoes is recommended. The practice of Chi Kung release toxins and clears blockages from the inner organs of the body. Please bring a bottle of spring water to drink during the class to help flush out the toxins that’s released during the session.

After session care: Please listen to your body and rest when necessary and drink plenty of filtered/spring water to continue flushing out toxins. Practice regularly and eat organic food where possible. Avoid contaminating your body with shampoos, deodorants, shower gels etc. that contain harmful chemicals and toxins, read labels on everything! Toxins which we absorb through the skin is just as damaging to our bodies as any toxic food we ingest.

Qi (Chi) – A Scientific View.

Modern science tells us that the human organism is not just a physical structure made of molecules. Like everything else, we are composed of energy fields, Albert Einstein has provided the proof. We are moving our concepts out of the world of static solid form into a world of dynamic field energies.

Almost a century ago (1905) Albert Einstein totally turned the world of physics, which was based on Newtonian principles, upside down, when he proposed his theory of relativity. His equation E=MC² predicted that matter (as mass) and energy are equivalent, which made possible the atomic bomb; he also predicted the opposite; energy could be converted to matter. Physicists are exploring the edge of quantum theory and subatomic particles, and are “shaking up” our ideas of reality. It is now widely accepted that matter and energy are not separate, discrete states, but on a continuum from lower (matter) to higher (energy) frequencies.

This is precisely qigong’s belief for thousands of years, that matter and qi (energy) were transformable. That is when unorganised qi arrives in the body, an unwanted growth can result, when organised qi arrives in the body that abnormal growth will disappear, a basis of qigong healing.

This year, 2017, saw a very special visitor.

We had a fantastic 3 days with Ken Cohen and his Primordial Qigong training June 23-26. Bournemouth.

Thanks to “Conscious Living Events” for organising his visit.

It was like walking back in time to ancient China, to be entranced by Tales of Tea through the ages, as well as sample Ken’s very special favourite ceremonial blend of tea, not available in the UK. Very interesting and humourous talk!

Looking forward to Ken’s next visit!
