Summer Week in the Ardennes

August 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - August 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am

Summer Week in the Ardennes

Join us for a week of study, fantastic food, morning yoga and Tai Chi in a stunning house by a lake in Ardennes forest. Join school co-directors Oliver and Marijke plus international cooking teacher Karin Baank, plus yoga and Tai Chi teachers Lisbeth Haustraete, Herman Verrijcken and Nadia Meziane for a week of classes, the best plant based food, and time to enjoy the lake and walking in the woods. The main theme is Oriental Diagnosis – getting to know ourselves better, along with cooking, Tai Chi and yoga classes, plus an evening camp fire and singing. During the week we will help you on a journey of discovering more about yourself – the unique gifts and qualities you have brought into this lifetime, your fundamental character and life direction, your present health and the steps you can take to strengthen and rebalance for greater health and inner healing and wellbeing. There is a whole variety of Oriental diagnosis methods, that you can easily learn to use yourself, by looking at subtle (and sometimes not so subtle!) changes in your skin, face, colour, gestures and body language, through your voice, handshake, eyes hands and feet. You will learn how to develop your intuitive ‘seeing’ to read these signs to understand yourself better, and also to be able to help guide others towards greater health and happiness. Deeper methods look into your past, earlier in this lifetime and who you were in past lives, and into the future and the possible paths you can take.This can help you to attune more deeply with your soul path for this lifetime, and get on with the work that you came here to do!
