We offer techniques to empower self-healing and wellbeing using the tradition of Qigong as a pathway to this end.  The practices include teachings and a range of exercises joining physical, emotional and energetic elements to connect mind, heart and body.   Qigong is an ancient Chinese energy healing tradition widely practised and scientifically documented to improve health.   Exercises are simple and accessible, but provide a technique to circulate deeply nurturing life energy.  We also look at reframing our relationship to the challenges of life through connecting with the universal source energy.

Workshops and Corporate Training events offer an introduction to Qigong as an approach to wellbeing.  A range of different exercises including physical exercises, visualisations and sounds are used to offer a sample of this tradition.  Seminars are tailored to the focus of the organisation involved to offer the most relevant experience for participants.
