The Energy of the Heart is classified in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as the Emperor of the Emotions and is ascribed the metaphor of The Fire Element in the WuXin or 5 phase theory - the basis of TCM.

Balancing of Heart Energy is so very important as

"the Heart Spirit ensures that whatever consciousness, intention, volition, thought, reflection, and self-awareness exist within the large composite Spirit intersects and "clicks" with the world of time and space"

Dr T. Kaptchuk OMD

Whilst open heartedness is an attribute that we all respond to - having strong & free flowing Heart energy can be difficult if one is undergoing excessive energies of fear, worry and anger.

  • Slide 1
In many cultures & religions the open Heart energy is expressed in paintings & sculptures - think of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Open Heart Energy of GuanYin and in expressions such as Buddha compassion, big heartedness & so many others.

Stanford School of Medicine's Center for Compassion has conducted much research that shows the beneficial effect of Compassion on our Mind & Body.

"The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body.

The electrical field as measured in an electrocardiogram (ECG) is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain waves recorded in an electroencephalogram (EEG)."

HeartMath studies show this powerful electromagnetic field can be detected and measured several feet away from a person's body and between two individuals in close proximity."

Heart Energy flowing in a balanced way has a direct effect on all aspects of one's being as evidenced from both traditional Heart QiGong training and in more modern scientific evaluation.

"Research has shown that the heart communicates to the brain in four major ways: neurologically (through the transmission of nerve impulses), biochemically (via hormones and neurotransmitters), biophysically (through pressure waves) and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions).

Communication along all these conduits significantly affects the brain's activity.

Moreover, our research shows that messages the heart sends to the brain also can affect performance."

  • Workshops
Qi Gong/Energy Skill is the ancient system of Vital Energy Cultivation developed by Chinese QiGong teachers over many thousands of years. It is the fundamental aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine which works on harmonising the Qi/Energy flow of the Organs (ZangFu) & their associated Meridians (JingLuo) through Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, QiGong & TuiNa.

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.

This workshop is open to all & suitable for all levels.

We look forward to you joining us!
