WHAT IS QI GONG
Qi Gong is a holistic movement and meditation practice that connects us to the natural flow and healing potential that is embedded in our body and cells. it is based on sequences of movements that are traditionally viewed as a good for cultivating and balancing the qi (chi) or "life energy".
According to Taoist, Buddhist, and Confucian philosophy, qigong allows access to higher realms of awareness, awakens one's "true nature", and helps develop human potential.
“Sheng Zhen" Qigong is called the Qigong of unconditional love. it has a very beautiful and gentle quality of energy and of movement. The practice of Sheng Zhen creates a deep state of inner peace and a feeling of love and harmony with the universe. It opens the heart, strengthens the body, and calms the mind.

WHAT IS SINGING BOWLS MEDITATION
In the Sound meditation we let the sound and vibration of the Tibetan bowls wash through our body and senses, while sitting or lying. the vibration goes deeply into the tissues, and allows the cells to relax and rejuvenate on a very deep level.
The rich and multi layered overtones of the Metal bowls, harmonise the different dimensions of our being and brings us back to our true essence which is peace.

WHAT IS AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT
Is a practice in which participants start in a comfortable position, eyes closed to sense their inner body-mind processes. They then wait for stimuli to arise within them, and follow each impulse expressing movement or sound. individuals move through the space entirely free from any direction or expectation. This allows people to explore psychological processes as they arise into kinaesthetic responses of movement or sound.

"When the movement was simple and inevitable, not to be changed no matter how limited or partial, it became what I called 'authentic' – it could be recognised as genuine, belonging to that person.”
The movement becomes 'authentic' when the individual is able to allow their intuitive impulses to freely express themselves without intellectual directive, as opposed to movement initiated by conscious decision making – a distinction which may appear clear, but practically a challenge. Individuals simply pay attention to what they feel at a sensory level, since "the core of the movement experience is the sensation of moving and being moved.” (Mary Starks Whitehouse- developer of the method).
