• Qigong and Mindfulness Workshop with Liam Thomas & Simon Haves.

    Qigong and Mindfulness Workshop with Liam Thomas & Simon Haves.

    Saturday 8th December 2018. 2 to 5pm. Contribution – £30

    In this 3 hour workshop we’ll go on an experiential journey into the Art of Mindfulness, weaving together the practical tools of Meditation and Qigong.

    Drawing on several thousand years of Chinese wisdom, Qigong offers gentle yet powerful movements that focus on cultivating and circulating our essential life energy (or Qi). We’ll explore techniques to loosen tension and become more grounded in the physical body, before working with aspects of healing Qigong that focus specifically on energizing and centering our whole being. Liam Thomas has been studying Qigong for 7 years, and recently certified as a Qigong teacher with the Shiatsu School, Bristol. He has taught Qigong in both community settings, and as part of longer retreats.

    Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present moment without judgement. Practising mindfulness can help you to live with the day to day stresses of life. It also supports the development of

    self awareness and compassion. To foster these qualities, Simon will guide you through practices such as body scan, awareness of breathing, and meditations on compassion. Simon has been practising Mindfulness since 2010 and has taught mindfulness to a wide audience including youth workers, educators, LGBTQ young people, plus his regular group in a local barber shop! He qualified as a Breathworks Mindfulness teacher in 2017.

    Maximum workshop capacity 8 people. Please book in advance to reserve a place by contacting Liam at [email protected] or phone 07547 885016. We look forward to welcoming you.
