20 - 23 October 2023 - Hedwig Bakker

 Labour Weekend

Qi Gong (pronounced: chi kung) is an ancient Chinese practice of working with your internal energy.
Through gentle movement, standing postures, breath work and meditation you can uncover and skillfully work with your inner resources for health, vitality, strength, flexibility, joy, happiness, well-being, connection, fulfilment.

Within every one of us is a place that is full of energy, health, and happiness. This is our natural state, but we so often lose touch with it in our busy, distracted lives. However, a visit to this place of inner vitality and harmony every day, even through a brief Qi Gong practice allows us access to a higher level of energy.

We want to be able to take control over how we are feeling, by moving the energy and skillfully working with it to elevate our emotions, create a calm, clear mind, and a vibrant body full of energy.

What to expect:
- We will practice during sessions of Qi Gong, breath work, walking meditation & sitting meditation
- Experience how powerful and joyful it is to practice together with others
- Enjoy the beauty, tranquility of Mahamudra centre, its supportive staff, nourishing meals and rural setting


This retreat is suitable for people of all ages, backgrounds & abilities and no previous experience required.

Please note that parts of this retreat will be conducted in silence.
