Gratitude & Healing Meditation, Qi Gong Form

Thursday Nights, 9.00pm – 9.45pm,  5th Nov – 17th Dec

This night time meditation is designed to help us relax, release and surrender to what is.  No matter what is going on in our life we always have the option to let go of our worries a little, sit into our trust and connect with our inner knowing, support and guidance for a more peaceful way of living.  

We will begin the session with Primordial Qi Gong form.  Primordial Qi Gong is a series of gentle movements that gently recharges you with full body movement and deep breathing.  During these meditation classes we will cultivate this practice which you can do every night to relieve stress, anxiety, overthinking or ‘monkey mind’, fear, negative thoughts or feelings and so much more.

Before bed is the perfect time to deeply relax the body and mind, allow them to release any worries or stresses before we settle in to a good nights sleep.

What one student has to day about the practice:

‘I love this practice so much, it helps me see the big picture when I’m worrying about something and I can usually just let it go and know that things will work out.’
