So standing practice is a cornerstone of my chi kung practice, something I have worked with on and off for 25yrs. There are times when I love it and feel I'm in a state of complete song, other times where I ache and struggle and wrestle with my mind. An encounter with a new client who had quite extreme Parkinson's shaking lead me to exploring how shaking can lead us to stillness.
I always find it really interesting to observe someone attending a Chi Kung class with me for the first time. I get to observe the relationship they have with their body. How they relate to it, how they communicate and translate what they hear into something they do, what are their listening skills like. It is a moment to observe their Karma's and the impact their choice have had on their structure, the story of their lives that is right there in how they use their bodies.
We know from the shift in the weather this week, that we are winter side of the summer solstice now, the descent down. It's slightly windy but bright and warm enough that we decide our Monday Chi Kung practice class at Centre for Integral Health will be in the Quarry park. Such an image to have us standing, while multiple zombies walk around being led by the magnet of the phone in their hands.
