We may have heard that mindfulness can help improve our wellbeing and reduce stress, anxiety and low mood. But what is mindfulness and how does it work? For anyone who is interested to find out more, probably the best way is to try it out for ourselves.

This 'taster' session will last about one hour and will include a chance to try a short guided practice; information about the background & theory of mindfulness and opportunities for discussion and questions. Annie will be available for individual queries after the session.

Anyone who is interested in further exploring the benefits of mindfulness for themselves will be able to find out more about Mindfulness Courses starting the following Wednesday in Lewes: see website for more details.

Please go to the 'Tickets' link below to register, free of charge, for this taster session.

For general information about who we are, mindfulness and all our events and courses, see our website www.lovemindfulness.co.uk.

If you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch on info@lovemindfulness.co.uk or 07795 562483.

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.
