Foundations of Mindfulness Insight Meditation, Chi Kung and SHIN YOGA day retreat with Wilhemeena Monroe and Erin Taylor

When we are awake to the present moment we can fully experience reality, know truth and feel whole. Yet, we tend to waste our lives in painful cycles of craving, aversion and confusion, preoccupied with trying to think our way out. The practices of meditation and chi gong offer us a way to ground ourselves through sensing and feeling, opening to an awareness that is vital, profound and intrinsically free.

Chi gong is a powerful support for mindfulness meditation: relaxing the body, quietening the mind and helping to maintain awareness in the here and now.

This day-long workshop will include meditation, dharma talks and simple chi gong and yoga practices to balance and harmonise body and mind. It is suitable for all levels of health and fitness.

Erin Taylor teaches Insight Meditation in Wellington with the Original Nature Insight Meditation group, including Peter Fernando, Stephen Archer and Hugh Tennent. She explored different meditation traditions from her late teens in the 1970s and has practised in the Insight Meditation tradition for more than 25 years. She studied Zhineng Chi Gong in NZ and in China and taught it for ten years before deciding to focus on teaching meditation. Chi Gong had a powerful effect on her own meditation practice and she has recently been teaching the two practices together.
