Meditations and Chi Healing classes.

The meditations practiced here are designed to promote a good understanding of the Mind, Body, Spirit connections that are the basis of the tuition for those wishing to heal themselves and others.  These classes have run for some 20 years and about 1,000 students have attended over the years.

The Chi-Do Chi Kung class on a Thursday evening starts at 7.30 to 9.30.

Meditation is an intrinsic part of all Tai Chi & Qigong. The health benefits are immense & every class has some "Mindfulness" content.

Students are taught fundamental exercises that promote the easy flow of Chi energy throughout the body, following accepted pathways which may be defined as 'Meridians' in Traditional chines Medicine and Shiatsu.  This is a unique form taught only to students of Chi-Do Healing arts, created by Master Tony 25 years ago and taught to over 1,000 individuals over the years.  Within this form, students learn how to balance, how to ease such as arthritis, frozen shoulder, falls prevention, aid prevention of back injury and rehabilitation.  The energy is balanced between the various organs of the body and a sense of well being is generated that often leads to lifting of mood, any tendency to depression and other conditions.

Students are taught the essential of breathing, the many different ways of breathing using the chest, abdomen, cyclical breathing and how to take goodness to all parts of the body and mind.  This often results in a lowering of blood pressure, relief of circualation and immune system problems.

Whilst the tuition is predominantly Taoist in the approach, Western Alchemy of Water, Earth, Air, Aether and Fire are incorporated as well as TCM.

The training is conducted in a friendly group of about 10-12 people, some of whom have been coming here to train with Master Tony for 15-18 years.  His approach is to allow freedom through the building of Self Confidence, a sense of belonging and support of a group of really good people.

The standard meditations are Breath, the Chakras, "Grassy Hill" and "The Five Elementals".  These forms are a path to enlightenment and the ability to use Chi energy for Healing Oneself and others.
