Sound & Sitting
We will have 4½ days to explore in some depth the mantra and single syllable sound work from the Official Lotus Nei Gong syllabus. We will be using a combination of Jing Gong (standing postures) and sound work to awaken various energetic areas of the body – to open and initiate internal vibration along various pathways. Alongside this we will utilise various exercises to support the opening and release through the spine so that the ‘stirring’ aspect of the sound work can clear out.
Working with Mantra, alongside our regular Nei Gong practice, can be hugely effective. Not only for the release of compressed expression issues, but to lead us into deeper states of meditation and consciousness.
I have included these days in our schedule for two reasons: firstly, because sound work in a group is a far more efficacious thing, and secondly because many of you have told me that because of where you live you rarely get an opportunity to practice. So here goes!
This retreat is not appropriate for complete newcomers to Nei Gong; it runs over 4½ days and the nature of working with sound, standing and sitting is deep and powerful. When you have become a little familiar with the way we work in the school, I hope it will be of benefit.
March 12th – 17th 2020.
