The interest in Taiji and Qi Gong started when I was 21 and has continued to be central since. I came to Scotland in 1993 to study at Glasgow School of Art, where I got a degree in Photography. I have lived, studied and worked in Scotland since. In 1997 I finished my apprentice training with Rising Dragon Tai Chi. At the same time, I also qualified as a Kairos therapist. Ever since I have continued learning and developing Taiji and Qi Gong forms, with various teachers. I have been a Mitra with Triratna since 2013 and have been on various retreats. I am interested in the importance of ‘embodiment’ or how body work can help us to be more present and alive. I am also very interested in working with energy and healing, as an aid for change.
Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
Qi Gong is rapidly growing in popularity as a practice which helps to generate more energy and vitality, and promotes self healing and inner harmony and can improve levels of health considerably. Many people benefit from having a movement practice to accompany and support their sitting meditation practice. Meditation is an integral component of Qi Gong, and they complement each other beautifully.
By combining the two practices, this retreat offers us the chance to deepen into our experience of both practices using the breath and focused awareness to deepen our connection with ourselves and others.
This retreat is suitable for complete beginners to meditation and Qi Gong as well as those who already have some experience.
This retreat will start on Saturday 28th Nov at 10:30am and end on Friday 4th Dec at 5.30pm.
