11 Jul Website News, Workshops Update, Term Dates
I am writing to you from the now ‘Events’ page on the Karuna website! It has evolved over the last few years, and it is now time to call it what it has become. ‘Events’ is a destination for workshop and class information.
First up: Workshops! Unfortunately, Emma and I have had to postpone the Mandala Drawing Workshop. It will now run on Friday the 12th August at 6:30pm. A reminder of what the evening will entail… Tea party, mandala drawing, and meditation. Time – 6:30-8:30pm. Cost – $30. Contact – me, Kristie, on 0410 704 413 to reserve your spot or if you have any queries!
Upcoming Workshop: Qi Gong with Jeni! The wonderful Jeni is my original tai chi teacher! In this workshop Jeni will guide the group through gentle Shibashi Qi Gong exercises, diaphragmatic breathing, and meditation. We will also practise recognising and sensing our own Qi, and the Qi of fellow participants. Qi can be described as “energy” or “life force.” Some experience their Qi when practising Tai Chi and Qi Gong as sensations of warmth, tingling, and wave like energy felt between the hands. It’s a very cool sensation! Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese healing, grounding exercise. The 18 Shibashi form, when practised regularly, can make positive changes in mind, body, and spirit. This style moves each joint and muscle, while also massaging the internal organs. From my own personal experience, I really love Shibashi. It is graceful yet strong, and a mindful moving meditation. Below are workshop details…
When – Saturday, 16th July (this weekend!). Time – 10:30am-12pm. Cost – $30. Contact – Kristie: 0410 704 413 … Jeni: 0414 280 951
