About the event

Join us in this retreat where we dive into ancient meditation practices, cold baths as well as intuitive ways of connecting to our inner resources.

Through Qi Gong, movement and Ice Bathing we engage with our system in a way that supports a peaceful mind and relaxed resilient body.

In this context, Qi Gong is the practice of following the bodymind-system's natural and universal ways of movement. Improving the free-flowing and effortless qualities of movement that are found in playing/dance and natural ways of moving. We share a selection of ways to enter into this effortlessness through exploring your own body's patterns and becoming more aware of the natural breath and movement already happening. How would it be to let go into what awareness can be, and see what happens?

Our wish is to create the perfect space to both rest in movement and feel renewed and refreshed through being more present with the body and its own flow and internal energy.

We will share ways of nurturing and calming the body and mind through restorative practices based on Qi Gong, dance and movement. This will also serve as a good foundation to meet stress and resistances in everyday life, and also prepare the body and focus to meet the cold, deepening the practice through an optional ice bath session every day. Participants are invited to join the bath every day and some of the practices will be preparing the body for this, although it is not compulsory to attend each day. The group is invited to provide support and encouragement for the ones taking the bath.

Ice bathing is optional each day of the week, as a supplement to the Qi Gong practices to open and integrate further through the body.

We invite you to explore a different kind of gathering of connecting yourself, softening into our bodies and spending a joyous time together.

As in Beatles famous words,

"Get back to where you once belong"

You can expect:

* Breathing deeper into your body and connecting to your body’s natural flow

* Moving every day

* Moments of deep stillness and softness

* Joyous moments with other people both in classes and and outside the scheduled sessions

* Becoming more “online” within yourself
