The Five Sacred Guardians
A Qigong and Meditation Workshop
Saturday, March 18, 2023
4:00 - 6:00pm GMT ( 5pm CET, 8am PST, 11am EST)

In Chinese mythology and qigong, there are Five Sacred Guardians of Earth and the Four Cardinal Directions. These are the Green Dragon of the East, Red Phoenix of the South, Yellow Snake of the Earth White Tiger of the West and Black Turtle of the North. Each of these animals guard the movements of cosmic and universal energy, and point us towards the possibilities of harmony with the cyclical patterns of creation and dissolution. Present since ancient times in Chinese Daoist texts, these later also became guardians of Buddhist dharma.

In this two hour workshop, we will explore qigong practices associated with each of these celestial guardians, and learn how an embodiment of these forms can help us cultivate and guard our innate qualities of goodwill, protection from negative forces, courage, health and harmony. After a short talk, we will learn five forms, one for each sacred guardian, and finish with meditation.

All levels welcome.

This workshop is offered based on dana. Dana is a Buddhist word and teaching that means generosity and support, and works on the idea of reciprocity. With my teachings, I will offer what I hope will best support, guide and nourish you in your practice. In exchange, you are invited to give an offering of dana that reflects the support, guidance and nourishment you feel you have received.

A suggested dana is £20-30, but please know that this is only a suggestion. If you are experiencing financial hardship, you are welcome to attend for less; likewise, if you have more financial means and the teachings have offered you something of value, you are welcome to offer more. I deeply appreciate your support, which allows me to continue offering my teachings in this way.

Here are some ways to offer dana:
