Retreats – Online
The pandemic left many of us unable to travel and gather, so in November 2020 Lucia decided to offer a retreat online instead. In the UK this was the start of our second lockdown just after the clocks went back, and many people were feeling a bit down, so we offered a Heart Repair Meditation for Nei Gong course. We ran classes in the morning before work for six days, with a longer session on the final day that included unstructured creative time at the end. 17 people signed up, some with only Tai Chi experience, some with only Meditation experience, and some with none of either. This is how they found the course.
“I loved the way how class was structured: balance between info, background and practice. I enjoyed the level of your engagement with participants. As I am very lazy in terms of physical activity I enjoyed the fact that I was a part of a group, it motivated me to keep going.” S.M.
“I have made great progress connecting Qi and my lower DanTian into my moving Qi Gong and Tai Chi practice. It was very sudden, after the first day of Nei Gong practice whilst performing Qi Gong I suddenly connected the dots of breath, soft openness, and moving with the intention gently directing DanTian. Absolutely magical.” A.P.
“It was also good to join a community of students again! The “Break-out Rooms” gave a little opportunity to “meet new people” which is such a rarity these days and hear each person’s slightly different take on what you’d been teaching. A.G.
“It’s a great way to start the day, and I really benefit from adhering to a strict schedule and doing it with a group. It actually makes it more effortless. There was a feeling of openness and generosity about the whole thing – very nice.” L.T.
