Elemental Chi Kung is a progressive approach to chi kung that incorporates classic styles and philosophies with modern bodymind and energy concepts. The approach explores body and chi awareness as a way to deepen into our internal chi flow through movement, stillness, meditation and breath. A creative space is sought to allow our essential nature to express itself and bring about transformations. The approach emphasizes the five elements as the foundation of chi kung. The workshops in Chi Kung are an ongoing series that interested participants can enter at any point. The workshops can either be attended individually or as a whole series.
There are ten, 2 day workshops and an annual retreat and the overall intention of the workshops are to present Chi Kung as a way to open to a deeper and richer connection to the life force within the human system and within nature.
