(Course Code: 50) This course is a highly experiential 8week Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation and the main components are participation and commitment. You wouldn’t expect to learn to play an instrument or a sport merely by reading a book on the subject, likewise learning to develop a meditation practice is no different than any other skill that involves both mind and body – practice is the key. Working as part of a group helps to encourage participation, intention and a collective energy which can have a profound impact on motivation, support and inspiration.
This 8week programme involves a blended approach that includes experiential exercises, formal meditation practices, mindfulness tips and techniques, and the realistic application of mindfulness in everyday life.
(Course Code 51/52) Qi Gong means “energy work”. There are many kinds of Qi Gong, which can be roughly paraphrased as the following: “A physically energetic exercise which has a specific physical or energetic effect upon a specific part of the body or mind, performed repetitively with the active participation of the mind.”
There are hundreds of Qi Gong “exercises”. All have the goal of powering up the body’s “operating system”, giving you more energy, releasing tension and stress, strengthening systems in the body, calming the mind, and so on. You don’t need any experience to do Qi Gong. Anybody can do it.
Class format: Warm up.
Main part: strengthening exercises, breathing exercises, energy movements.
Meditation: relaxation, focus, breathing.
