Qigong for the five zang: strengthening the five principal organs for health and wellbeing


Saturday July 9th 2022 10.00 am – 4.15 pm

with Peter Deadman

Qigong for the five zang: strengthening the five principal organs for health and wellbeing.
Drawn from Peter’s 30-years’ experience of qigong, this workshop will teach core qigong body-mind-breath practices (neigong) and then show how they can be applied to movements which work on the five principal organs of the body: the lung, spleen, heart, kidney and liver.

The workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced qigong practitioners and is ideal for acupuncturists and shiatsu practitioners with a basic understanding of Chinese medicine and the channels, although this is not necessary to benefit from the day.

A video of the neigong and the five zang practices will be made available to participants after the workshop.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing and flat soft-soled shoes. There will be a one-hour lunch break.
