Summer- and Winter Course Training in Gothenburg

The Winter and Summer Courses are two longer residential courses that we hold on a yearly basis. Every year we also offer addiitional training courses where we focus on the movements and practise learned on the longer courses. So we have "Winter Course Training" where we practise what we were taught during the Winter Course and "Summer Course Training" where we focus on what we were taught during the Summer Courses.

These courses alternate each year between Stockholm and Gothenburg. Last time they were held in Gothenburg where we practised in a very nice dance studio situated in Majorna. The studio was filled during a well-attended course.

Bring a Poster When Taking a Walk

Posting posters is one of the ways we use to market ourselves in the places where we arrange courses. Some participants who have practiced with us for a long time have told that it was a poster that first made them find European Zhineng Qigong. Click here to read about some of them.

Maybe there is an opportunity to put up posters where you live and practice? Talk to a teacher or contact person if you are interested, and you can get posters from them that you can bring when taking a walk!

 

Our Residential Courses

Some of our courses are residential courses where we eat and live together. The courses contain quite a lot of practise and since you leave ”the everyday world” you have the possibility to focus more on practising and consequently obtain better results. Since there is time for socialising, if you want to, several participants have found new friends. The possibility to combine holiday with practising is also very popular.


These are our yearly residential courses:

During the Winter Course in Karlskoga we mainly practise Shenxin Qigong and we practise a lot! We live and eat at Karlskoga folkhögskola. You can choose between a mattress in a dormitory or a single or double room. The Winter Course takes place in week 8 and lasts 6-9 days.

Spain
The training trip to Spanish Almuñécar is a combined training and holiday trip. We stay in a hotel with a sea view and practise on the beach in the morning to the background sound of the rolling waves. Half-day is practise and the rest is holiday. One day we arrange an excursion and you can participate if you feel like it. Due to the availability of space in the hotel family members are welcome to come even if they do not participate in the course.

 

summer-course-2019-training-hold-qi-up.jpgThe Summer Course
The Summer Courses are our biggest courses. Here we are a great many who live and practise together. We practise a lot but there is also time to meet new and old friends. The courses take place in Nossebro in Västergötland and they start on the Monday after midsummer. During Summer Course 1 we focus on Hold Qi Up and during Summer Course 2 we practise Xing Shen Zhuang. In all we can practise for 18 days running.

The Autumn Courses
Every year we arrange Autumn Courses in Finland as well as in Norway. Usually we arrange them as residential courses. They are four day long practising courses where we mainly practise Hold Qi Up. They are open for anybody who has attended a basic Hold Qi Up course.

Thinking of What to Pack for the Winter Course?

Very soon the Winter Courses is here and there are many who will take the course for the first time. With you in mind we have put together a proposal for a packing list that you can use to get some inspiration when it is time for you to start packing. We also gathered tips from experienced participants about things that might be good to bring.

You can get a copy of the list here.

 Karlskoga Winter Course 2019

A new semester begins!

We had a long Christmas and New Years holiday but now the training groups all around Sweden start their Qigong activities again. If you find it difficult to get started with your Qigong practice it might be a good idea to sign up for our weekend courses. Then you have something nice to look forward to and you get some help to spark your motivation. Though it still may be winter and grey outside, spring is not far away! While you long for the colours of spring you can have a look at these lovely embroidered Qigong shoes, hand made wool training carpet and this very practical crocheted bag for shoes. How clever and beautiful!

Give the day a Good Start by Practicing Qigong!

While some by nature have plenty of energy in the morning, for others that part of the
day can be very difficult. Due to the state of health one can experience problems with
everything from waking up, getting out of bed, stiffness in the morning, pain or bad
temper. Practicing Qigong can be one way of reducing the difficult things and instead
get a feeling of well-being in the morning.

 sommarkurs-2019-3-1080_1.jpgEuropean Zhineng Qigong teaches several
methods that are good to practice in the morning, but which to choose? We have
asked some of our participants about what they practice in the morning and in what
way it helps them to get a better start of the day. During the autumn we publish their
ideas in a short series consisting of three different parts. Earlier in the series we have
read about participants who start the morning with Hold Qi Up and with Easy
Care respectively and now it is time for a participant who has chosen to practice
Xing Shen Zhuang.

With Xing Shen Zhuang I can Handle any Misfortune
“Every morning after breakfast I practice Xing Shen Shuang. That method gives me
joy and strength. I feel as if whatever misfortune could happen during the day I would
be able to handle without any problems! I get a deep calm and strength. To me it is
an unsurpassed method for meeting every day. If I happen to suffer from a cold or
have some virus in my body I usually prefer to practice Shenxin Qigong or Hold Qi
Up instead.”

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

European Zhineng Qigong wants to wish you all a very merry Christmas! We hope that you all have a lovely holiday with your loved ones. Sometimes the Christmas holiday can bring different kinds of challenges, so it can be good not to forget your Qigong training to help you to stay calm and focus on what’s positive. Christmas can also be an opportunity to be extra kind and helpful. Wherever and however you celebrate Christmas we hope that you have a wonderful time and we’ll see each other when the semester starts again.

Merry Christmas!

Hold Qi Up in Alingsås, Bollnäs and Nybro – Nice Atmosphere and Many Improvements

Alingsås

This term we have, among other things, held basic courses i Hold Qi up in Alingsås, Nybro och Bollnäs. In Alingsås they held a basic course for the fifth time. The atmosphere during the course was nice and several participants said that they had felt calmness and joy. One group continues their evening group training together once a week.

Several participants reported that they had experienced improvements during the course, one participant said: ”Last winter I had an accident which led to my having one leg amputated below the knee. During this course I have managed to stand with my prosthesis during the whole of Hold Qi Up. It feels like a big step forward.”

Bollnäs

In Bollnäs the course was held in Björktjära skola. The majority of the participants lived in the vicinity but a few had travelled to the course. Afterwards several of the participants told about the long term effects of Qigong, e.g. more energy, less pain and better mental state in the ordinary life with less anger and anxiety.

Two participants also told of positive effects from this year’s Summer Course. One said: ”After this years Summer Course I have felt so calm and contented, in a very agreeable way.”

Another participant told: ”Since 2012 I have had to keep a check on my liver status because it was not quite all right. During this year´s Summer Course I kept wishing that they would be all right. After the latest check-up I got a letter telling me that the status was good and that I must not come for check-ups again.”

Below there are some pictures from the course weekend showing the vicinity. Read the report from the course here: https://zhinengqigong.eu/index.php/sv/kurser/kursrapporter/10764-

Courses in Nybro/Kalmar for Twenty Years!

It was a lovely atmosphere and good concentration during the practice of Hold Qi up in Nybro during the last weekend of September. ”We are soaking up a lot of qi for the autumn”, one participant said.
Twenty years ago we arranged the first course in Nybro/Kalmar and many of the participants have been practising for a long time. They meet each other during weekend courses, weekly training groups and Summer- and Winter Courses. Here are a couple of snaps from the weekend with the exterior of the place where the course was held – Nybrosalen in the building where the glass was cut in the former glassworks of Pukeberg.

The next is a person who practices Easy Care in the morning to get the body started.

Pain in the morning gets easier with EasyCare-practise

”I suffer from pain in my back, in my shoulders and in the nape of my neck. When I wake up in the morning I am very stiff and suffer from pains in one or several of my problem areas. It is hard to wake up feeling pain but fortunately I have learnt several small Qigong methods that I can use to get the body going. I start the morning by sitting down on a stool and practice fingertraining to get the circulation going. Then I practice two methods from the EasyCare-series: EasyCares for eyes and Combtraining. The cirulation is improving and the pains recede. These small methods also aids to prepare the body for more Qigong practise. I like practicing Shenxing Qigong in the morning because it makes the whole body more supple, particularly the shoulders, the back and the hips.”

Snaps From the Summer Course

Now, when the Nordic children are back in school and most of us have returned home from our vacations, it would be nice to remember some lovely summer memories. We can share a few shots with lovely summer memories that have been sent to us. We would love to have lots more!

Hold Qi Up in the morning makes my body supple and my mind calm

 ”I practice Hold Qi Up in the morning because it gives my day a very good start. It is a nice way of getting my body started and I feel good by starting the day by getting supple. If I am stiff and in pain it disappears by practicing. I also feel that I acquire balance by Hold Qi Up, my mind is calm. After practicing in the morning I can start the day in a calm and ordered way even if I am very busy. Practicing gives me a structure for the whole day. Even if there are lots of things going on in my life, and a lot of things happen, it is as if I have a basic calm with which to meet the day. Practice makes me happier. My dog also likes my practicing Hold Qi Up, she has noticed that I play more with her then!”

At the Office - Better Posture and Concentration when Practising Qigong


One of our aims when practising Qigong is to manage our everyday life better. Many of us spend a great deal of time at work, so coping with our work and preventing work-related injuries can be important for us.

One of our participants works as a consultant in IT and sits a lot at the computer. Through practising Qigong his capacity to concentrate has grown and his posture has improved. “It is much easier to focus despite intense periods of work with a lot to do. When it comes to my body posture I am now able to feel which way of sitting is better for my body and which is less so.”

He also claims Qigong has helped him when cooperating with others. “It is easier to see to the result of the group as a whole, when before I used to focus more on my own accomplishment.“

Meet the Autumn With Qigong Courses in Norway and Finland

During the 17th to the 20th of October European Zhineng Qigong offers the annual Autumn Courses this year in Oslo (Norway) and Pargas (Finland).

autumn-course-karis-lärkkulla-leaves.jpg


The Autumn Course is a four days long training course particularly aimed at you who have earlier taken part in one or more basic courses of Hold Qi Up. During an Autumn Course we go through the things you have learnt during the basic course again, we introduce some new things and we practice much more than during a basic course. To practice more during several consecutive days makes it easier to relax and to focus on practicing and this makes it easier to get better results.

 Höstkurs_Karis_2000px105.JPG

The Autumn Course has been created by European Zhingeng Qigong as a step between our basic courses and our Summer Courses of 9 and 18 days. The general idea is that the Autumn Course will make it easier to practice a little more before taking the step to enrol in the Summer Course. For some frequent Summer Course participants the Autumn Course has been the way there. 

autumn-course-norge-oslo-2018.jpg

In spite of the fact that the Autumn Courses above all are aimed at participants who have taken part in a basic course it also suits more advanced participants who want to repeat and practice Hold Qi Up. The mix of new and experienced participants makes the practicing powerful and gives a good foundation for helping each other correcting the movements. The Autumn Courses are also a good opportunity to meet fellow Qigong practicioners, to share Qigong experiences and to meet friends from earlier courses.

Höstkurs_Karis_2000px60.JPG

 
This year the Autumn Course in Pargas, Finland is a course with bed and full board which means that we both practice and live together. During the course in Oslo, Norway, the participants meet during the day and practice, exactly like a basic course. 

Welcome!

Qigong Training This Summer – put up Posters Together With a friend!

In many places where we arrange courses we use posters for marketing. There are many examples off students who started practising after seeing a poster. Click here to read about Madeleine and Johannes, two participants who started to practise thanks to a poster. They have now practised with us for many years and have had great improvements.

affischering-stockholm-juli-2019-6.jpg

Summertime is a great season for putting up posters. The upcoming semesters courses are planned but have not yet taken place and the warm weather is perfect for a pleasant walk. If you would like to give a hand and put up posters where you live, please contact a teacher or the contact person. 

affischering-stockholm-juli-2019-5.jpg

Putting up posters can also be a great social activity, something that the depicted qigong students in Stockholm agree on, they often combine posters with walks.

Summer and Qigong Training in Nossebro

For the 25th year in a row, the European Zhineng Qigong Summer Courses have started. This year, like many before, we are in Nossebro where we live and practice in the school’s facilities for 18 days. The Summer Courses are the best training we can offer and we focus on practicing and learning professional qigong methods. Several course participants have already reported that the training has improved their quality of life in different ways. These results include, among others, reduction of pain, improved sleep and an improved calm. Several people have also shared their positive experiences of community and good company during the course. This year we are over 170 persons who live a simple life here, eat well, practice a lot and socialise with each other. Here are some photos - from the training hall, from the trip some of us made halfway through course one and of our life here in general.
