About the event

Through this session, meditation facilitator Sophia Bourne will guide us in to movement through QiGong - an ancient Chinese energy cultivation and moving meditation practice - so that we can open, expand and integrate our physical, emotional and energetic body before we move freely into a dance. 

The meditations and forms will be drawn from Five Element QiGong  - Wood and the associated element of Spring. This element relates to creation, beginnings, initiation, activity and expansion. It emerges from the darkness of winter and the water element with potential and possibility. 

Through this practice, we will establish healthy, deep roots in our physical form, connecting to our inner rhythms and centre, so that we can move outwards into dance with a solid, spacious foundation. 

After the QiGong movement meditations Temenos founder FX10K will lead us into a free form dance with a carefully curated soundtrack designed to support deep somatic listening. This will be followed at the end by a gong and sound healing performance from Kaja Kippenberg.

Sophia is a movement and meditation facilitator and bodylistening practitioner. She believes that practice is about opening the doors to our sensitivity and aliveness and meeting whatever is present in our bodyminds. Her approach encourages students to tune in, and respond, to their internal worlds, with presence and spaciousness. Sophia believes that by moving in synchronicity with the natural world, we can better understand the needs of our individual and collective body. She is deeply influenced by qi gong and daoist philosophy, alongside somatics and yogic practices. To find out more about her work or to contact her directly find her on Instagram here.

FX10K started DJing over 30 years ago when he was 15 and has a deep love and appreciation for music and movement. He has DJed all over the world and has a vast music collection that spans musical genres.
