The Retreat Venue - Abbey House, Glastonbury.

The main rooms of Abbey House look straight down the ruined nave of the famous Glastonbury Abbey, built on the most ancient Christian site in England and which for hundreds of years was a religious house famous throughout Europe.

Abbey House enjoys a stunning 4 acre garden set on the North East side of the 26 acre site occupied by Glastonbury Abbey. The gardens are very special with an unusually wide range of trees and shrubs, including a fully grown healthy Elm and a Fortingale Yew; quiet seating areas where you can sit undisturbed and watch the wildlife, and around the perimeter of the garden there is a Prayer walk with a largely all-weather path.

Special Access to renowned Glastonbury Abbey is a perk of staying at Abbey House.

Qi Gong Training

Qi Gong or Vital Energy Skill is the ancient Chinese method of energy work involving various practices aimed at stimulating the flow of Qi in the human acupuncture channels & following the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Combinations of meditative focus, breathing methods, movement & stillness techniques are all aspects of QiGong, by interacting with & manipulating the Qi within our bodies as well as interaction with the multitude of Qi fields around us, one can achieve an abundance of Qi flow resulting in relaxation, health, rejuvenation & vitality.

In Classical QiGong theory the 3 DanTians/Elixir Fields are important energy centres located within the human body:
The Mud Pill Palace - Upper DanTian/Elixir Field - within the Brain Centre
Crimson Palace - Middle DanTian/Elixir Field - within the Heart centre
Sea of Breath - Lower DanTian /Elixir Field - within the Abdominal cavity

XiaoZhouTian the Little Heaven Circulation (DuMai & RenMai extraordinary vessels) connect all the Yin & Yang Qi meridians of the Human body (as used in Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)). "Little Heaven" circulates Qi around the human torso. ChongMai (Penetrating vessel) links the 3 DanTians/Elixir Fields as well as to XiaoZhouTian the Little Heaven Circulation whilst connecting the Human Qi field with the Earth's Qi field below & the various Qi fields of the Cosmos above.

Training during this Retreat will include:

-Vital Energy/Qi cultivation in the 3 DanTians
- XiaoZhouTian - the Little Heaven Circulation
-Embryonic breathing Skills
-Linking and harmonising with the Michael & Mary Leylines.
-Standing & Moving QiGong methods from TienDiRen (Heaven, Earth, Man) , BaDuanJin (8 Silk Brocades) & YiJinJing (Tendon Muscle Exercises)
-Seated still & guided meditations from BaDuanJin, 18 LuoHan
-ShaoLin Dhyana (still meditation)

The Qi Gong training will be held both indoors in the Main Chapel & the Cellar Chapel and outdoors in Abbey House Gardens & Glastonbury Abbey (weather permitting).

The Lucid Light Experience

Controlled by patented software, The Lucid Light Experience uses a combination of flickering LEDs and constant light to stimulate the brains’ alpha waves and produce an optical experience, which is entirely unique to the viewer.

The Lucid Light Experience produces effortlessly and without long hours of practice:

• Quick and sustained deep relaxation

• The feeling of being outside one’s body

• Spiritual or transcendental experiences

• Being beyond time and space

• “Deceleration”

• Enhanced joy of living

• Increased learning aptitude and achievement potential

Developed by Dr. Dirk Proeckl, a Neurologist and Psychologist, and Dr. Engelbert Winkler, a Psychologist and Psychotherapist, the kinetic light device stimulates neurotransmitters that facilitate harmonic patterns of the frequencies in different parts of the brain, which are usually only attainable after practicing meditation for many years.
The Lucid Light Experience creates a sense of deep relaxation, dissipating the sensation of time and space, allowing the viewer to experience different dimensions of the self.

You are welcome to choose which training sessions you participate in. allowing you the opportunity to enjoy the retreat centre, local Glastonbury Tor, Chalice Wells and the surrounding countryside.

No previous training experience is necessary to take part in the various training sessions and they are suitable for all levels of fitness.

You will leave this retreat feeling rejuvenated, vibrant & full of energy.
