Nourish through Breath

Love and Kindness Meditation

Zhan Zhuang

  • ‘Standing like a tree’ is a powerful internal practice where a static posture is held for a period of time.  Standing is an important part of Tai Chi and Qi Gong training and should be built up gradually whilst the body adapts, the legs grow stronger and the muscles start to relax.

The Inner Smile Meditation

The Six Healing Sounds

  • We can extend the Inner Smile meditation practice to include the healing sounds.  This ancient practice helps expel negative emotions from the organs, cleanse the organs and transforms them into positive emotions.  This can be a stand alone meditation or done at the same time as the inner smile.
