Sheng Zhen & Qigong Heart Opening Couples Workshop

Shen Zhen meditation is a method of self-healing, movement meditation, often referred to as “practices of Unconditional Love.” It is a state of being when a busy mind comes to rest peacefully in the space of an open and loving heart. When the heart opens, the mind naturally calms down, and one can automatically enter into a natural state of well-being.

Qigong is movement practice that combines the body, the breath, and the mind to balance your body’s energy, or Qi, creating a natural state of peace, calm and harmony.

In this workshop, our wellness partner, Edward Wiley, combines these art forms in a focused and intentional dance between partners, creating a heart-opening practice. Through these movement modalities, we practice self-healing, unconditional love, while being connected to oneself and each other, in a way that will open the channels of communications, improve listening, increase loving and promote healing. At the end of this workshop, you will have new skills and tools to begin your own heart-opening practice, with each other, allowing you to connect more intimately and authentically.

Edward has over 15 years of experience learning, practicing and teaching Aikido, Qigong and Sheng Zhen, combined with a passion to help couples dive deeper into their relationships in a new, fresh, and heart-opening way. Edward has brought his unique offerings to Soul Play, large group venues, as well as one-on-one custom classes for his clients.

You do not need any prior knowledge of meditation, Qigong or Sheng Zhen. A curiosity and openness to learn new things with your partner, will go a long way.

Bring a cushion to sit on.

SUGGESTED DONATION: $50/person ($100.00/couple) Each individual should register independently and note the name of your partner.

The workshop will be hosted in our community gathering space – the Tipi. It is a beautiful, transcendental space that will calm you, while allowing the space for learning, transformation and growth.

If you would like to stay after class, we will be hosting a potluck lunch at our main house, also on the property. If you plan to attend the potluck lunch, please indicate this on your registration.

PLEASE NOTE: We are offering Edward’s KNOT LOVE class in the afternoon – it pairs really well with this class. We offer a 10% discount for those who take both classes in the same day.

Extend your day and join in on the fun, while practicing your newfound skills into a fun and erotic way! To read more about KNOT LOVE: Shibari Couple’s Erotic Rope Playshop.  CLICK HERE for more info.
