Finding Kindness Through Stillness & Movement – Practice Day
Finding Kindness Through Stillness & Movement – Practice Day – with Qigong
3rd October 10 – 4pm
with Jacky Seery
Join Jacky for a practice day of movement, mindfulness, kindness and self compassion, as we explore the spaciousness and softness of body through movement, mindfulness and compassion practice
What do we do to distract and soothe ourselves during life’s ups and downs? Sometimes we can turn to negative ways to soothe ourself. Instead, can we learn how to be kind to ourselves and use mindfulness, compassion and Qigong movement practice to bring a sense of calm and restore our wellbeing?
By combining body awareness through a compassionate body scan, being mindful of breath and body in our sitting practice and doing gentle mindful movements such as the ancient art of Qigong, we become more aware of the hidden language of the body and how our thoughts can impact the body. We will explore how it is to truly feel present and use sitting and moving practice to explore how we can soften and soothe our body, mind and being and allow everything to be just as it is instead of trying to distract ourselves.
By witnessing how we are, in our body and minds at any given moment we become equipped with new and necessary information required to become more mindful and respond rather than react to situations in life.
No previous experience is required for this course and the movement is very gentle and can even be done seated.
