  • Winter Solstice Workshop 2023

    Winter Solstice Workshop

    £15.00

    Qigong & Meditation Live on Zoom

    Join me virtually on Zoom for an evening of nourishing breath work, relaxing Qigong and stillness meditation on the winter solstice 2023. Learn relaxing movement and stillness techniques to foster a calm state and release physical tension. Dip into the world of internal cultivation practices for health, happiness and longevity.

    In the Chinese calendar this is the time of absolute yin, known as Dong Zhi, with the shortest day and the longest night in the year. The yin yang symbol is a visual representation of the Chinese calendar, depicting the season changes. At the winter solstice the sun moves to the most southerly position of -23.5 degrees. It is a time of rebirth, where the days after begin to slowly lighten as we move forward into the winter season.

    In Chinese culture Dong Zhi is a time for festivities, family gatherings and a time for the farmers to prepare food for the upcoming cold winter weather.  The winter solstice is the turning point, when the shortest day comes and goes, a time to celebrate this time of yin, optimism and looking forward. Join my virtual Qigong gathering to celebrate the return of light.

  • Summer Solstice Meditation Workshop

    Summer Solstice Meditation

    Join me on Zoom for a session of nourishing breath work on the summer solstice 2023. Learn to relax the mind and release physical tension through breath work and balance the heart-mind.  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 my virtual classroom to celebrate the sun sitting over the Tropic of Cancer where it becomes the “upright pole with no shadows”.
