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

standing like a tree - the eight archetypical postures
The tree is the central motif of this one-day chi kung workshop.
Still standing chi kung, also referred to as the art of standing like a tree, promotes a balanced way of standing in between the heaven and earth.

By way of archetypical postures, we will explore in our bodies and get intimate with the fundamental natural forces represented by the tree.

8 essential postures: seed posture. root posture. trunk posture. earth posture. branching posture. spreading posture. bud posture. flower posture. 
8 essential themes: centering. grounding. verticality. stability. contact. balance. growth. expression.

Besides the postural training, we engage in partner work with each other and with the trees.
