Sinking Your Chi

We will continue to work with Essential Elements - the building blocks of all chigung and taichi movements - and this time we will focus on sinking chi and rising energy. Movements will be drawn from Taichi 15 and we will further refine the six movements of 'Gods Playing in the Clouds'. Beginners may join this class.

Spring Chi
9 March - 13 April (6 weeks)
Rising earth energy is drawn into the body to produce a springiness of motion. We'll use Taichi 15, movements from Shibashi and other means to experience the flow of chi through inner space. Beginners may join this class.

Opening to Chi
11 May - 15 June (6 weeks)
The Essential Elements include three particular dynamics of chi: circling/rotating, sinking/rising and opening/closing. In this series of six classes we'll focus on opening movements and in that way become more open to the flow of chi.

Summer Chi
Occasional outdoor practice announced by email to class members at short notice.

Autumn Sessions
7 September - 12 October (6 weeks)

Winter Sessions
9 November - 14 December (6 weeks)

Time for Change

Dates and details to be announced.

In response to the uncertainty of these times, and in conjunction with the online training programme 'Time for Change', Clive plans to offer a series of meetings in the UK, Finland or online.

There is a clear and urgent need to stem the rising tide of anxiety and mass insecurity. The solution is to be with what's happening in the knowledge that it is time for change and the new must come. But how can we submit to the imperative of change without suffering from pressure and stress? These meetings are intended to reconcile you to what's happening, to live with the pressure and yet be without anxiety or stress.
