"Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky"
(Kahlil Gebran)

TREE TIME
chi kung & practices informed by nature
The tree is the central motif of this workshops.
Just like a tree, we explore how to stand in a balanced way in between the heaven and earth and we get intimate with the fundamental forces evoked by the tree's life cycle:

soil
seed
rooting
sprouting
verticality
spreading
branching
flowering

We engage in simple, ancient and nature-based practices, such as:

- still chi kung (zhan zhuang, archetypical postures for health)
- slow movement
- walking chi kung
- partner work with the trees

This training makes available:

- simple and efficient practices that you can take home and integrate in your daily life
- exercises that nourish your sensorial awareness, immunity, nervous system regulation, heart-conncetion, grounding and intimacy with yourself and the surrounding world
- orienting and connecting to environment
- exploration and play around what it means to be part of the web of life connecting all living beings
