What is Higher Living?
Feeling empowered as a Master of your own Energy and your own life direction, - having the ability to easily and gracefully let go of negative, sticky and heavy energies, situations and experiences, while staying in your highest vibration, no matter what life throws at you
“Self-mastery and the consistent care of one’s body, mind and soul are essential to finding one’s highest self and living the life of omen’s dreams”
- Robin Sharma
Having Access to, and trusting in, your own inner self-healing life-force, your Qi:
Building a beautiful, loving and supportive relationship with YOUR body, NOW
Moving pain-free with grace, ease and spaciousness
Create a harmonious internal environment where self-healing occurs naturally - with no pills
Enjoying and find pleasure in movements that you and your body will crave
AND learning how to maintain this heightened state of balance for lasting health, joy and happiness, forever.
“You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we're not. We always have the power of our minds…Claim and consciously use your power.” -
- Louise Hay
Confidently making choices that support your highest vision for yourself, now and into the future.
"Every thought, action, decision, or feeling creates an eddy (a swirl) in the interlocking, inter-balancing energy fields of life. In this interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our private world improves the world at large for everyone.” - David Hawkins
Wiring in the habits that create an enduring foundation for inner stability and peace - beautiful Qigong practices, Visualisations, Meditations, Journalling activities and Energy Healing techniques that can take as little as 5 minutes per day.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act but a habit.”
Connecting with YOU and your true soul’s purpose and gaining clarity and confidence to take steps to realign your life to what lights ups your heart.
“When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It’s very Simple.”
Being Truly Authentic, Energetic, Magnetic and Alive - finding the confidence to own your unique beauty, grace and awesomeness and courageously connecting your heart to your voice.
“Live authentically. Why would you continue to compromise something that is beautiful to create something that is fake?”
- Steve Marabou
Does this sound exciting, AND a bit daunting?
Don’t worry… we begin at the beginning, first by making space in our lives by becoming aware of and letting go of those things that drain our energy, freeing up time and energy to focus on you and your highest vision for your life.
Great things start from humble beginnings.
" journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" - Lao Zi
These 21 Days have been intelligently curated to offer a potent catalyst, creating real and deep shifts that can take you on a new or enhanced path towards more joy, spaciousness and freedom.
Qigong literally translates as energy cultivation. Leonie, your teacher, specialises in the Calligraphy Health system developed by her teacher Master Yang. Based on a 3-dimensional model, incorporating three main circulations within the human body; blood circulation, mental/nervous circulation and digestive circulation, movements become alive with Qi energy. This energy can be held and controlled within us, by us, for our own well-being, vitality and motivation, or can be transmitted to others for the purpose of healing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Leonie's workshops are soul-driven, nurturing and supportive experiences, incorporating external practices (fluid and dynamic sequences to promote circulation of blood, oxygen and Qi - our energy source) - balanced with - internal practices (subtle breathing, meditation and visualisation calming the nervous system), combined with discussions and activities to challenge and motivate, leaving you feeling relaxed, empowered and inspired.
Each workshop is tailored specifically to benefit the modern Western Woman with space to explore and express yourself, connect with other like-minded women and be supported as you embark on a journey of personal growth and development . Leonie brings her passion, understanding of anatomy, breath work, meditation, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Philosophy, personal development and mind-body science to explain specific benefits of each practice. This includes effective practices to support entrepreneurs, business owners and corporate workers experiencing stress, overwhelm, depression and anxiety; online entrepreneurs, office and desk based workers experiencing body discomfort, back pain and joint issues; and professionals with sedentary lifestyles and related health issues. The wider benefits of Qigong including energy cultivation, hormone regulation, better sleep, improved concentration, creativity and organ function are also outlined during the sessions.
Typically Leonie's workshops involve:
Yin Energy Embodiment and Breath - Arrive in the body, connect with your Highest Self and harness the Qi
Yang Energy Body Wake-up - Warm-up the joints, preparing the body for more dynamic movement
Guided 3 Dimensional Qigong Healing & Cleansing Movement - Circulating Qi to each cell and organ in the body, while stretching & strengthening
Intuitive Movement - Free flowing functionally based movement for intentional healing, releasing negative emotions and connecting with YOUR intuition, authenticity and creative centre.
Relaxation - Integration, embodiment & reflection
Group discussion and powerful activities - intelligently curated worksheets, strategies, journalling and goal setting - harnessing group energy and accountability to take action between sessions - all while enjoying tea and a nourishing and healthy treat.
Meditation/Visualisation - Closing meditations paired with the focused theme for each session to powerfully ignite momentum and energy towards your action steps and goals for the week. (This can be done laying down or seated)
frequently asked questions
Q. Isn't Qigong just for old people in the park?
A. Qigong is for EVERYONE, at any age. My teacher started training 6 years old! Many older people practice Qigong because it is an incredibly sustainable and effective way to exercise and stay healthy, while being gentle on the joints. Leonie's classes are targeted at professionals in their 30's, 40's and 50's - expect some gentle yet dynamic sequences as well as more relaxing movements.
Q. How can Qigong help reduce physical pain, heal my injuries, regulate my hormones, help my digestive issues, heal my internal organs, help me sleep better, make me look younger, reduce my stress and anxiety AND help me gain clarity and perform better at work? This sounds like 'snake oil' to me!
A. Modern Western medicine often likes to compartmentalise the human body and frequently treats the area of disorder, or the area where disease appears, in isolation to the rest of the body. Whereas Traditional Chinese Medicine tends to have a more wholistic view of the human condition, and sees the root cause of all disease - physical, mental and emotional - as being stagnation - stagnant blood, stagnant energy, stagnation in your life situation and a lack of 'Qi', an imbalance of 'Qi', or an interruption in 'Qi' flowing smoothly. Just think of a stagnant body of water - it is so easy for bacteria, fungus and disease to form.
Qigong offers a systematic way to regulate and cultivate 'Qi', while cleaning out and shifting stagnant blood, oxygen and energy. This has an incredibly efficient and positive effect on ALL aspects of health, wellbeing and the human condition.
Q. Why Calligraphy Health Qigong? Isn't Calligraphy something to do with writing with a paint brush?
A: Unlike other styles of Yoga and Qigong, Calligraphy Health Qigong works with changing the physiology of the human body by increasing the production of 'Qi' or bio-magnetic energy in body. This is guiding the body’s chemistry through pathways known as 'meridians' to provide healing, health and longevity. Calligraphy Health Qigong works on the three main circulations in the human body (mental, blood and digestive), to produce an overall positive affect on a person’s health. Calligraphy Health Qigong movements are based on a 3 dimensional sphere. This exercises, stretches and cleans the body’s connective tissues and muscles in a much more comprehensive way than traditional static/flowing Qigong and Yoga postures.
Yes, Calligraphy Health Qigong received it's namesake from Asian brush writing. In the same way a Calligraphy artist moves his brush fluidly in one smooth consistent stream of characters, in the same way we practice Calligraphy Health Qigong in a flowing stream of smooth and fluid movement.
Q. What is 'Qi' anyway?
A. 'Qi', pronounced chee, means vitality, life-force or energy and is often translated as "air", "vapour" or "breath". Qi is the vital energy force that permeates the universe, animates a living organism and flows within the human body. Qi is essential for the smooth functioning of internal organ systems. In Yogic traditions this energy is referred to as Chiti, Kundalini and Prana. In. Japanese traditions this energy is called Ki.
Q. I'm not sure I believe in Qi or Traditional Chinese Medicine, will I still get benefit from practicing Qigong?
A. Absolutely! Many people practice Qigong to simply exercise their body and stay fit and healthy in a sustainable way that won't injure their joints. Qigong works for everyone regardless of your interest or beliefs. Your results will largely depend on how frequently you practice and learning the correct techniques.
Leonie has spent over 500 'live-in' hours training with her teacher, Energy Specialist - Master Yang, at his home on several occasions and has been awarded twice with the certification to teach Calligraphy Health Systems 1 & 2 and trained in teaching Calligraphy Health Systems 3 & 4.
