Art of Masculinity

ArtofMasculinity
Have you ever thought of your life as a form of Art?  Modern men’s work has become synonymous with brotherhood exercises which test men’s bravery through competition and requirements to challenge one another but often leave out significant portions of a man’s life.  In this one day workshop we will explore themes like gratitude, intuition and creativity- topics which are often absent from the dialogue about men’s lives.  We will also explore the role that a man’s vitality plays in creating the kind of life which satisfies his own vision of himself… his own work of Art.
Atithi Brian Schock is a international teacher of Taoist Sacred Sexual practices and Tantra.  He lives in Athens, where he teaches regular Yoga and Qigong classes and is an avid student of Traditional and Classical Chinese Medicine.

5 Element Qigong workshop~ Transition Spring to Summer

Yijing1new

Yijing I is a celebration of the transition from the freshness and vitality of spring (the wood element) into summer, the season of full and mature expression (the fire element.) In 5-element theory the liver (wood) is a fresh, new, bud full of enthusiasm for life. For the bud to flourish into a thriving plant it needs careful attention in the form of water, nourishing soil and steady sunlight. In a similar way these forms nurture and attune human beings toward our most authentic expression, at our ripe moment.

This workshop will uncover the six essential qigong forms from the MogaDao repertoire that will bring us securely through this transition. We will discuss how the I-ching relates directly to these qigong forms and to our natural lives. Participants will practice and learn these six forms as a qigong hexagram.

***Please note that the final hour will be dedicated to refinement of the forms and tips on how to begin one’s own personal qigong practice at home.

Where: Χοροχώρος Dance Studio, Navarinou 6, Holargos, Athens

When: Sunday May 21st, from 12.00 to 16.00

Cost: 35 euros/ 30 for regular students

Qi Dance! in Cyprus

Qi Dance! Invoking Abundance

Saturday, March 11th from 6 pm to 9 pm

Karma studio B.M.S, Filanda Court, Larnaca, Cyprus

The session typically starts with a short set of archetypal qigong movements. Participants use these archetypes to attune themselves to achieve a deep sense of centeredness. To this authentic experience of oneself we incorporate carefully selected music. With gentle and attentive guidance participants begin to work with a transpersonal theme. The combination of qigong, inspirational music, gentle instruction and the theme forms a container within which participants safely explore themselves and their relationship with others.

At this time in the flowering of human consciousness there is a great need to connect with and to heed the call of abundance that flows through all of nature. Whether we observe the opening of a blossom in springtime or enjoy a relaxing meal with a close friend we must recognize these gifts of abundance with a grateful heart. Nature needs to give to us but are we open to receive?

In this event participants will have the opportunity to identify ways in which they block the natural flow of abundance and techniques for ‘attuning’ the physical body to the natural cycles of receiving and giving. And since abundance is attracted by energy, vitality, expression and movement, you can be sure we will Dance!

This event is open to all (men and women) regardless of level of experience, age or physical ability.

5 Element Qigong Workshop~ Mogadao 5-Phase Yang Tonifying Form

_DSC0086e-007

with Atithi (Brian) Schock

In qigong, as in life, we are subject to transitions. Qigong reminds us that as humans and as beings in nature we must move in accordance with natural cycles.

The Mogadao 5-phase Yang Tonifying form is a set of 5 qigong forms, which correspond to the 5 elements, as well as the 5 primary organs of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Individually, these forms respond to specific psycho-spiritual functions of the element/ organ pairing that are inherent in our human lives. Taken together, these archetypal movements form a comprehensive set designed to nourish, balance and vitalize the entire being throughout any yang period of year, month or day.
