    Weekend Workshop

    Join me in Ryde on the Isle of Wight for a Qigong celebration of the summer solstice 2024. Learn to release physical tension and balance the heart-mind through mindful movements, breath work and Taoist meditation.  In the Chinese calendar this is the time of absolute yang, known as Xiàzhì, and marks the beginning of summer with the longest day and the shortest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The summer solstice is the 10th solar term in the Chinese lunar calendar, beginning on the 21 June and continuing for 15 days.  In ancient Chinese culture Xiàzhì is a time for festivities, family gatherings and a time for the farmers to pray to the god of agriculture for a fruitful harvest, and a time to honour their ancestors through worship.  Come along to our studio in Ryde to celebrate the sun sitting over the Tropic of Cancer where it becomes the “upright pole with no shadows”.
