"Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky"
(Kahlil Gebran)

TREE TIME
Introduction to standing like a tree and the eight archetypical postures
"Tree Time" has the tree as it's central motif and aims for a communal movement rooted in stillness.
By way of standing like a tree (still chi kung or zhan zhuang), you will be introduced into the eight fundamental forces represented by the tree:

soil
seed
rooting
sprouting
verticality
spreading
branching
flowering

"Tree Time" is a still chi kung class, that will take place every other month, in the Amstelpark, offered in collaboration with De Meditatietuin.

It consists mainly in postural, energetic training, breathing and slow movements, practiced outside, in the context of the direct relationship with the trees.

This class is donation-based (minimum 5 euro) and open to everyone who wishes to nurture an embodied and heart-felt conversation with nature.

Program:
-10h00: arrival at De Meditatietuin
-10h10: we go outside to the trees
-11h00: return to De Meditatietuin, tea and sharing
-11h15: finish
