Longwater Workshops

  • half day (typically 3 hours)
  • full day (5-6 hours incl. time off for lunch)

5 Seasons Late Summer to Autumn - Shropshire

Sat 7th Sep 2019 10:00 am - Sun 8th Sep 2019 1:00 pm
Sat/Sun £70 - Sat morning £40
5 Seasons Late Summer to Autumn - Shropshire

Five Seasons Qigong: Transition and Integration - Late Summer into Autumn

We continue our popular series of 'immersion' weekend workshops that span the year and its seasons. Discover and embody ancient practices that were created to naturally resonate with the energies of the Earth through its annual cycle.

This year we have decided to present the Late Summer Qigong workshop with a transitional 'Late Summer into Autumn' theme. The natural world has been affected by the very challenging summer this year and is currently in a seasonal transition. The 'Chinese Element' predominant in Late Summer is 'Earth', which is also the element of transition for all of the season changes throughout the year. A key focus of this workshop will be on using and integrating Earth energy into mindful movement, to centre, stabilise and to stay in balance through transition.

Sat (10am to 4.30pm) / Sun (10am to 1pm). Cost £70 for both days / £40 for the Sat Morning session only.

On Sunday we offer an in-depth workshop where you can deepen your study, as well as review and practice what we learn on the Saturday - see details. You do not have to attend this session but it is included in the price.
