Event description
Join this "hands on" workshop to learn all about Qigong and to personally experience the power of genuine, high-level Qigong

About this event

What If...

What if you could be more relaxed and less affected by stress?

What if you could overcome illness?

What if you could have more energy and zest for life?

A clearer mind and better focus?

What if you had the ability to bring the best version of yourself to everything you do?

What if you could bring more happiness, flow, and ease into your life?

Now, what if you could start to develop these kinds of benefits by performing a simple practice that takes as little as 15 minutes a day?

The practice in question is the ancient Chinese art of Qigong (Chi Kung), and more specifically high-level Qigong. 

It’s natural to be skeptical that benefits like this can come from such a small investment of time, and the only real way to find out for yourself is to experience it.

We invite you to do just that and join us for a Qigong Workshop to find out more.

What is Qigong?

Qi (or chi) is life force energy and Gong means “art”. Qigong is the art of developing energy, particularly for health and vitality, longevity, expanded awareness and spiritual cultivation, irrespective of race, religion and culture.

There are hundreds of styles of Qigong, because the term “Qigong” is used as a collective term for various energy training arts. Throughout Qigong history, early medical professionals developed energy for healing purposes, Kungfu practitioners for combat efficiency, Confucian scholars for mind expansion and Buddhist and Taoist cultivators for spiritual growth.

Qigong can also be practiced at different levels. Low-level Qigong is practiced at the form, or physical level only. Mid-level Qigong is practiced at the energy level, and high-level Qigong is practiced at the mind level. Form, energy and mind are considered the “three treasures” of a human being.

We teach high-level Shaolin Cosmos Qigong, which is much more than graceful physical movements. By practicing at the mind level and training form, energy and mind simultaneously, it becomes a profound and effective energy training system.

And it is by training at a high-level that it is possible to achieve results like restoring the body’s own innate healing ability, developing resilience to stress, increasing energy levels, improving mental clarity and leading a more enjoyable life!

The best news is that you can be a complete beginner and still train in this high-level art – you just need to show up at the workshop!

What Can Qigong Do for You? 

By developing skills that cleanse, build and nourish energy, and through regular consistent practice, students have the potential to realise extraordinary benefits, such as:

  • Restoring the body’s own innate self-healing ability
  • Developing robust physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health
  • Cultivating vitality and zest for life
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Becoming more resilient to stress
  • Eliminating toxins from the body
  • Increasing levels of presence and awareness
  • Feeling happier
  • Enjoying a clearer mind with better focus
  • Bringing the best version of oneself to anything you do
  • Being able to relax more deeply
  • Enjoying better quality sleep
  • Living longer while remaining active and healthy
  • Developing agility and flexibility
  • Experiencing more joy, happiness, inner peace, and freedom

We’re not claiming that all these benefits will be realised from this workshop, or the foundation skills 12-week course, though improvements in these areas are absolutely possible in 12 weeks. By gaining some fundamental skills and training high-level Qigong, and with regular practice, these kinds of benefits are genuinely possible.

By comparison, if one only trains at the form or physical level, much of the potential of Qigong is lost. It might lead to better blood circulation, looser muscles and some degree of relaxation, which would be comparable to gentle physical exercise, but it would fail to achieve the profound benefits of overcoming illness, achieving health and vitality, greater energy levels, resilience to stress and so on.

How Does Qigong Work?

Simply put, Qigong generates energy flow that clears energy blockage in the body.

What is energy blockage?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) talks about the concept of energy pathways in the body called meridians. When a person is healthy, energy flows harmoniously throughout the whole body. When these energy channels become blocked it creates an energy imbalance that can lead to the body’s systems receiving either not enough or too much energy. This impacts the function of the body’s systems and as a consequence, sickness and disease can ensue.

How does energy become blocked? 

There are many reasons, for example physical injury, emotional trauma or mental distress.

Good health is your birth right 

It is actually natural to be healthy. The human body is an amazing ecosystem that is constantly healing itself when working properly – just look at how scabs form after a cut.

By practicing Qigong and clearing energy blockage, the body’s innate healing system is restored, energy flows harmoniously and natural health returns.

As more energy is built and stored, this leads to feeling more energetic, full of vitality, with a clearer mind and greater presence. Excess energy is stored in the meridians, leading to greater vitality and longevity.

Enhanced energy levels also lead to expanded states of awareness and presence.

The benefits gained by practicing Qigong are a direct result of the quality, volume and smoothness of the energy flow throughout the body.

Join Us for this Experiential Workshop       

If you are curious to learn more about this incredible energy art, come along to our workshop and enjoy a taster session, where you will be introduced to this simple yet profound practice. The workshop is primarily EXPERIENTIAL, and you will be practicing Qigong as you would in a class setting, as well as learning about the history, philosophy, breadth and depth of the art.

Qigong does not require any special clothing or equipment. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing and flat shoes and bring some water to stay hydrated.

This workshop is completely FREE.

What People Are Saying

“I did Tai Chi and Chi Kung for a few years twenty years ago and went along to the day workshop with Matthew just because my friends were going. I wasn't expecting anything special but how wrong could I be! Within a few minutes of starting the exercises, I could really feel the chi. It just resonated with me in a way it hadn't done when I practiced before - if it had been this good then I'd never have given up. It's a few months since the workshop and I'm still practicing a few times a week at home before work. I can't wait to do another workshop with Matthew.”

- Jane A

“Matthew has a natural way of teaching, with an ability to demonstrate the movement and ensure everyone on the workshop gained the knowledge and skills to use it in their daily practice. I found using the practice as part of my daily routine, gives me balance and calmness around me, which is a perfect way to begin the new day. He also focused on some different movements within Qigong to help us with our own physical issues, which brings focused energy healing every day.”

- Lorraine

“Matthew is a wonderful teacher. Somehow, he transmits his enthusiasm whilst being peaceful and calm, so much so that I now practise at home every day.”

- Caroline
