Tai Chi and Qigong
At this series of events we will work with Daoist philosophy in practice. Peter will introduce you to fundamental exercises from Tai Chi, Qigong and Zhan Zhuang as practical ways of working with the principle of Wuwei.
Wuwei is a Chinese concept meaning meaning “non action” or “effortless action” and points to a harmonious way of relating to oneself, others, society and nature. Working with Wuwei is about becoming still, noticing and moving with what is there, rather than trying to force anything. It is being silent so that one can hear nature speak. It is being open to feel other people.
Learning to move effortlessly in this way is quite difficult. Not because it there much to learn, but rather because you need to let go of a lot of assumptions and preconceptions. Thinking that you have understood it is not enough – the understanding needs to pervade your body-being.
We will work with the tensions between being relaxed and firm, how not to meet force with force and the idea of effortless action. This is a good way to get an introduction to Tai Chi and Qigong, a way of getting more in touch with the principles of Tai Chi and Qigong if you have experience or a way of connecting to the idea of effortless action in your life in general.
This is an introduction event. Introduction events are meant as an offer to people who wants a slow and safe way of entering a new practice. At these events our facilitators take extra care to guide you.
