Tai Chi!

Shadowy movements at dawn in the park, neither dancing nor fighting though to me it looked like both. My mother danced with Margot Fonteyn and enrolled me in my aunt’s ballet school but I retired at five, so no competition for Billy.  The fighting came later, first at school whacking Fatty Barnard across the ring under the smiling Irish eyes of Father Paddy Noonan, then my chum James to win the Army Garrison title in Malta before being KO’d by a Marine in Hong Kong. Karate in my forties to get fit after a hernia op but longer recovery times sparring with teens and twenties retired me after four stubborn years.

Learning the Way of the Hidden Masters gave a sense of reality to this ancient art emulating the heroes of yore, the warriors, the fighting nuns and monks. Master Ho explained it can be practiced at any age, for health, to enhance our protective energy-field, to strengthen our physical and energetic immune system, to connect with higher and lower forces on the spiritual path, for self-defense, or simply to harmonies with our environment and alleviate the effects of stress.

The double-helix spirals reunite the Yang and Yin forces of creation, to ebb and flow throughout the meridian network, feeding the organs that sustain our life. We open and stimulate the meridians, the energy-flow channels, enabling the bio-electro-magnetic force, Qi or chi, to come on full charge as we do the slow graceful form.  Healers and Martial Artists improve external Qi-projection and internal rooting. Meditators develop the rootedness to keep safe when practicing kundalini or astral projection in the higher meditations.

Tai Chi comes to us as a gift from the past, a way to create our own tranquility: “to keep our cool when all about us might be losing theirs.”

Do you want to learn? 
Then come on by our first Tai Chi training  starting this Thursday 13th February, 7 to 8.30pm at Psychosynthesis Trust, 92-94 Tooley Street, London Bridge SE1 2TH – 2nd Floor, Room 32.  You can Book Your Place Now!

The shaman, as ‘mediator with spirit’ is chosen by spirit and called by humans when healing practices such as herbs, massage, acupuncture or allopathy have failed. If the sickness prevails, Shaman finds out from Spirit what healing the soul needs for the body to be whole again. Everything is a gift and a blessing, for everything is Love, and gratitude and thanks must be given even for hurt and pain. Then harmony can be restored between soul and body.

Come along and learn more: 8th February, 7pm-8.30pm, Carlton Primary School, 196 Grafton Road, NW5 4AX.

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Shamans

The Year of the Dog begins with a bang – or should I say a shout?  Don’t want to crow about the 10,000 Likes on our Healing Tao facebook page, but certainly happy about the feather in our cap from Tai Chi Teacher Training in Portugal!

Meanwhile, just 4 weeks to go to one of our most exciting annual events: the 4-Day Introductory Workshop on the Secrets of Taoist Shamanic Healing, 23rd through 26th February, ancient wisdoms relevant even today in our frenetic modern lives, as shown by feedback from previous years:

I loved this shamanic healing course. It reminded me of how powerful we really are in the world. There are so many ‘other’ worldly shamanic tools available to help us. I loved the Cosmic Qigong- Hands of Light… I felt my intuition and psychic abilities being fine tuned. Anamarta and Kris were amazing teachers – fully present and sharing their extensive experience of healing and of many different traditions, enriching the teachings. I would love to do the workshop again! MG, Dublin

Secrets of Taoist Shamanic Healing workshop was another step forward in my Life, a great and favorable experience. Kris and Anamarta were really good shamanic guides and teachers. Here, I reaffirmed that I have a really good intuition overall, I learnt more about my inner Self and tools to protect it. Totally recommended! Elena, Edinburgh

Come on by and find out for yourself!  Plus, there’s a Talk on the 8th February.

Chi Nei Tsang – Hunter or Quarry?

Chi Nei Tsang, like the shamanic rituals, captures the deepest of the human emotions. It touches the heart, is captivated by the lungs, goes deep into the liver, magically opens the door to living life in the present through the spleen, and gathers the sensations of ebb and flow through the tides, the kidneys.
Whether you want to be a practitioner, or simply use it to enhance your life, come on by.
This weekend, 7th and 8th October, 10.30 to 5pm, Kentish Town Studio, 141 Kentish Town Road NW1 8PB.
