Nature Meditations: Deepening into the heart of the Elements Retreat

‘When we pay attention to Nature’s music - we find that everything on the Earth contributes to it’s harmony’ Hazrat Inayat Khan

Nature is constantly speaking to us …. if we listen to it’s rhythm, it will bring us back to what is most essential and real within us. The Universe, nature, and our own being are made of the elements Earth, Water, fire, Air and Ether. When we deepen into these powerful energies, we understand ourselves and our essence, and come to know ourselves through the divine qualities manifesting within them.

Through meditation, dance, sacred ritual and contemplative time in nature, this weekend retreat will provide an opportunity to go more deeply within. By so doing, you have a greater capacity to accept yourself as you are, whilst simultaneously opening up to qualities or aspects you may not have been aware of in yourself.

The retreat is led by Marie-Helene Dalila-Boyle (Farzana) and Kim Paumier (Noor Alima), located in east Sussex (highwealdretreatcentre.com).

Vital Spirit Qigong Sessions

Vital Spirit Qigong (Jing Shen Qi Gong) an ancient Chinese spiritual way known as Internal Alchemy (Nei Dan) and Vitality Practice (Qi Gong). This holistic style of Qigong works with Yin-Yang, Three Treasures, Five Elements and Chinese Medicine.

This system of Internal Alchemy Qigong benefits body, mind and spirit: it rejuvenates, heals, transforms and develops your spiritual potential.

The aim of these fortnightly sessions is to access the spiritual, vital and essential resources you need. You also experience your inherent connection to the universe and nature which enriches your life and sense of wellness.

Vital Spirit Qigong Workshop
Jul
27
11:00 AM11:00

Vital Spirit Qigong Workshop

  • Events Room, Open Door, Church Twitten (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Vital Spirit Qigong is based on the ancient Daoist system of Internal Alchemy. In this

workshop we’ll focus on the classical Chinese notion of the Fire Element which relates to our

heart (Xin), spirit (Shen) and heaven (Tian).


Through meditation, visualisation, reflection and attunement practices we’ll engage with and

experience our spirit. By connecting to its heavenly reality, spiritual qualities such as

harmony, tranquillity, beauty, empathy and unity can pervade our heart. This leads to

increased personal and spiritual wellbeing, even a sense of oneness with all life (Dao).

As with all Vital Spirit Qigong events, we’ll work with sequences and practices to replenish

our energy and increase our vitality. We’ll also include Medical Qigong to heal our body.

Using specific postures, sounds, movements and breathwork we will improve our health and

overall wellness.


Amadis has practiced and taught Acupuncture since the 1986 and Qigong since 1990.

Nearly forty years study of Classical Chinese Medicine and spirituality informs and enriches

his teaching.

COST: £45 for the day. Concessionary rate available.

What will we be covering?

This is a circle of support for each other and for the earth, inspiring ceremony and regular shamanic practice in our local community.

Shamanism is a way for us to feel connected to a like minded community and be guided in practices, ceremonies, and stories. These can positively inform our lives, contributing to our own growth, health and the wellbeing of our nearest and dearest.

We will be sharing energy exercises that help us to stay strong and powerful.

When we can share our individual gifts and talents, our community is blessed and filled with wellbeing, harmony and balance.

The intention will be to journey to the upper, lower and middle worlds for guidance.

We will also be working with the archetypal energies of serpent, jaguar, eagle and hummingbird and working with the question 'How can we bring shamanic practice into our daily life’?

How can we walk with beauty?, 'How can we dream our worlds into being?'

Family Constellation Workshop

Family Constellation Workshop

Constellations are a powerful way to bring to light hidden dynamics and forces that unconsciously shape our lives.

Working systemically gives people an opportunity to see themselves in their personal or working lives within a much wider context than that which we are accustomed to thinking. By witnessing this work and finding our better place in a system we are able to create new energies and possibilities for movement where things were previously stuck.

The work made a dramatic difference to my life, which is what led me to train in this way of working. I wholeheartedly believe the more we can pay attention to ourselves and our own blind spots the more we can build peace in the world.

Despacho Ceremony

Come and celebrate the Spring Equinox by setting your intention in this beautiful Q’ero practice from the Andes in Peru.

What ideas or projects do you want to fertilise with the power of your life force?

A despacho is the ancient Andean practice of creating a celebratory ceremony to the mountains (the Apu’s), Mother Earth (Pachamamma) and other nature spirits in reciprocity, reverence and thanksgiving.

We will be blowing in prayers for ourselves, or family and friends and any wider communities or projects you may have.

It brings us into alignment with our personal intent, our group intent and immense gratitude for the earth.

The despacho ceremony will be offered by shamanic practitioner Ali Rabjohns, helping us dream a new world into being for our children’s children.

If possible, the despacho will be burnt on site.

Vital Spirit Qigong

Vital Spirit Qigong Sessions

Vital Spirit Qigong (Jing Shen Qi Gong) an ancient Chinese spiritual way known as Internal Alchemy (Nei Dan) and Vitality Practice (Qi Gong). This holistic style of Qigong works with Yin-Yang, Three Treasures, Five Elements and Chinese Medicine.

This system of Internal Alchemy Qigong benefits body, mind and spirit: it rejuvenates, heals, transforms and develops your spiritual potential. Posture, movement, voicework and breathwork sequences are combined to connect to your and nature’s vital energy (Qi) which benefits your physical health and general well–being. Meditation, visualisation and attunement are used to experience and realise your integral spiritual reality (Jing Shen).

The aim of these fortnightly sessions is to access the spiritual, vital and essential resources you need. You also experience your inherent connection to the universe and nature which enriches your life and sense of wellness.

For 30 years I have studied and taught various styles of Qigong, including Daoist and Medical Qigong. I bring insights gained through the study of Classical Chinese language and philosophy, as well as 30-plus years practicing acupuncture.
