Year of the Water Snake
We recently hosted the 5 Animals retreat in Devon. Zhixing led us into a state of emptiness and liveliness with a very powerful vibrant, light and easy transmission.
The hall at times resounded to the sound of bird calls, or on the other hand the pin drop silence of the deer's careful advance. Guttural sounds and Qi accumulating exercises marked the Bear's entrance and the Tiger and the Monkey danced their own style to a tune of fitness and joy of life.
Meanwhile spring gales roared and buffeted at the windows, but we remained unperturbed by the world outside.
The message was one of letting go into the deepest relaxation and allowing the power of the animals to emerge in a playful vibrant spirit.
A truly empowering and liberating retreat known for its effects on good health and vitality, this will be repeated next year. Of itself it is a stand alone Hua Gong practice for fitness and vitality, and those who attended are urged to meet in practice groups where they can, and keep the spirit of this practice strong and vital in their hearts.
The Qi Calligraphy for this month is aptly entitled "Flower".A good way to tune into this energy is to imagine that the Calligraphy is looking at you.:
"This is the Chinese character for flower, pronounced HUA. Right now we are in the beautiful flower blossom season. With this image comes the best wishes to all who receive the newsletter for a blossoming life ahead".

These weekends offer the most updated Hua Gong methods and is the most regular Hua Gong class available. Over more than twenty years it has created a place to connect to and tune in to the cosmic Qi-prenatal life energy and information from which we receive life nourishment and spiritual inspiration.
Most of the discoveries through the way of Hua Gong on the human body and energy, on health and illness, on rejuvenation and longevity and on spirituality have been shared in these weekends.It provides the most detailed Hia Gong teachings on the fundamental level and represents the most updated Hua Gong transmission in terms of the "Qi field" (overall sensation or experience of the energy effects in the group), techniques and information.
Small Group Classes at the London Weekend
From a Learning aspect these classes provide a chance to receive the results or accomplishment of the Qigong practice directly through personal empowerment-the recharge of energy and information.
From a Health point of view it is an opportunity to receive a personal Qi treatment and to stay in the Qi field for a period of time to consolidate the good effects.
The benefit of personal transmission or Qi treatment session has often been experienced as being more beneficial than months even years of Qigong practice on one's own.
