New Wednesday Morning Qi Gong Group 

As the Monday morning Qi Gong group, (which has been running since 2000)  is full, I am starting a new additional group. 

           10.30 - 12.30 am Wednesdays 

           Each session will be £10 

           to include an hour of Qi Gong and guided meditation 

           followed by a chance to 'stay in the energy' and chat over a tea/coffee. 

           The main form will be Emei Shan, but other movements and forms may be included. 

            It will be suitable for complete beginners, or current practitioners.

Please Note : I ask that anyone interested in joining this group contact me to arrange a one to one session to assess whether this group will be suitable or you.  Cost of one hour Qi Gong instruction is £40. 

I established this formula after attending Qi Gong classes where the moment it ended everyone started dashing off to get on with their busy lives  - and  I found this sudden breaking of the peace that we had worked to create very counter-productive. So, I hosted a group in my own space and over the years we have all found this the best way to start our week, a place where we can give ourselves some time and space, share our news, discuss ideas and support each other. Although no Master would advocate coffee and biscuits as part of deep energy work, I find this blend of Qi Gong (esoteric) and staying in the group to chat awhile afterwards (practical and social) works wonders. 

A safe haven that makes us all feel so much better on every level!

The Qi Gong Group continues...

Now in its fifteenth year. 

If you are interested in joining a group here, or in one to one session to learn about Qi Gong practice, contact Ann.  


Past events include:


New Moon Ritual, Meditation and Sound : Monday July 8th 2013 ,

 7 - 9pm  £20

Limited places. These are small group sessions of about 10 people where we work with the particular gifts and qualities of energy being brought forward with each New Moon. 

The New Moon is traditionally a time to plant new seeds and encourage new idea to grow so it is ideal for working with the power pf ritual, meditation and Sacred Sound to break up old patterns and instill healthy new ones. When this is done with others there is a powerful group consciousness and witnessing that can help us truly embody the new qualities we have decided to create in our lives.

More dates will follow. 

One participant at the New Moon Ritual, Meditation and Sound  in May commented afterwards: 

"What an amazing Friday evening! A deep and memorable experience. Afterwards I felt very calm, almost serene.  What has stuck with me is this sense of power. I'm not necessarily thinking its mine, but made me think how we spend most of our adult lives suppressing this. "2012:
