Qi Gong - Mondays on Zoom

Mondays
7:00 PM
Online
£0.00
--View Description--

Qi Gong has a powerful effect on the whole of the body and mind. Every exercise has an effect on the whole energetic system, allowing energy (qi) to flow freely. It is possible to practice Qi Gong with mobility difficulties – each posture can be adapted, and it is feasible to practice whilst sitting on a chair.


Much like Tai Chi, Qi Gong uses slow movement, tied in with the breath, to help move energy around the body.


This session is £8 to attend, or you can come along for a donation.


Any questions, please email: susie@pauseandbreathe.co.uk

Mindful Communication - 3-Week Course - Online

Thu 01 Dec 2022 - Thu 15 Dec 2022
7:00 PM
Online
£0.00
--View Description--

This 3-week course will focus on mindful communication - how we can bring a mindfulness focus into our relationships. If we practice mindfulness, what effects might there be on those around us? We look at mindful speech and deep listening, and consider how to bring these into our daily lives.


Our three weeks look like this:

Week 1 - Communication with Self - learning to listen to ourselves more deeply, which helps us to better connect with others

Week 2 - Deep Listening - listening is such a fundamental part of our communication with loved ones - but how often are we distracted, or trying to formulate our response? In this session, we learn to truly listen

Week 3 - Speaking Truly - when we speak from the heart we speak mindfully


The course is £25. Our Online Pause & Breathe Members get 20% off this price. Please don't let cost put you off, there are donation spaces if paying the full price is unaffordable.


This course is suitable both for beginners and experienced practitioners, although having some understanding of mindfulness will be useful.


You may wish to have a yoga mat handy to sit or lie down on for practice and a blanket and cushion for additional comfort. People sometimes find a notebook helpful, for personal journaling.


Please feel free to email me with any questions - susie@pauseandbreathe.co.uk.


Testimonials:

  • It was a gentle and heartfelt exploration of the art of communication
  • Some simple ideas which can make a massive difference
  • Susie held the space safely and knowledgably for the exploration of mindful communication
  • It was good to take the time to myself and learn to express some repressed feelings

Restival: A Day Long Rest Festival - on Zoom

Sun 15 Jan 2023
11:30 AM
Online
£15.00
--View Description--

So many of us struggle to stop. To be still. To do nothing. Yet we all know that our bodies and minds need to rest. We need to balance our busyness with stillness. Our days are so full that we cannot switch off at night, and sleep becomes elusive.


Restival is a full day dedicated to rest. We start before lunch, and will be having workshops into the evening. You are welcome to join us for as many workshops as you like. Our timetable will be released soon.


We have some incredible guest speakers joining us, including Karen Brody and Scott Moore. Susie will be the host throughout the day, she'll be offering the welcome and also a Yoga Nidra for sleep at the end of the day. Rest isn't just about stillness - we'll have some movement in the day, we'll hear about ancestral exhaustion, one of our guest speakers will be talking about Labyrinths, and how they link to rest.


We are keeping our costs low, we know that things are tough right now and we really want to offer this out in the spirit of giving. We have a sliding scale - £15 / £25 / £35 - just pick the level that matches what's affordable to you.


The workshop is held on zoom, it'll be the same zoom code for the full day, so you can pick which workshops to attend with ease.
