What we're about

A silent walk amongst ancient trees, in unity with nature and One self;
exploring practices in mindful walking, mindfulness, and Qigong.

Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is an eastern practice of gentle stretching, deep breathing, and sustained poses to facilitate the mindful connection of mind-body and nature.

The Nature Walk with mindful walking and Qigong (pronounced Chi gong) is to help us relax and connect more deeply with nature and within ourselves. We'll use the eastern practice of Qigong to build mindfulness of our mind and body. The walk will last for about 1 hour, starting with warm-up, then a circuit walk on the Heath with a few stops for practicing Standing Tree Qigong. There will be places to sit for a few of the Qigong stops. To be at ease and experience stillness and calm, most of the walk will be in silence at a fairly slow pace. As in any exercise, please take care of your health and stop if you don't feel well when walking or when practising Qigong. Qigong consists of deep breathing, gentle stretching and a few sustained standing positions. Dress warmly or lightly according to the weather. If you are likely to feel cold in your extremeties, wear light gloves and thicker socks as we will be standing still for Qigong. Wearing sunglasses will be fine and not hinder the flow of Qigong movement. Although the walk will not be vigorous, bring a bottle of water if you are likely to be thirsty. We will walk on the made footpaths with only a little off-the-path activity. Footwear such as walking boots or trainers for possibly wet and muddy ground would be advisable. If there is inclement weather that makes it impossible to do the walk, I'll let you know of any changes by mobile SMS text. Please meet at 9:30 am at the Petanque Pitch (on map here). Please don't mistake the Bowling Club (which is grassy and green) for Petanque Pitch (sandy pitch) as both are next to the tennis courts. We are meeting at the sandy Petanque Pitch as shown in the map shown.
