Summer Course 2 HQU Kvänum [2004-07-07]

Summer courses in level 2 are for those who have already participated in a summer course since before. It is getting more usual that participants ,even those who have not joined any summer courses before, participates in both level 1 and 2 to get 18 days back to back. This year many continued from level 1 to level 2, but there were also participants who came directly to join level 2.

The participants experienced the atmosphere as very positive. Everybody wanted to help others, and that felt very good. Kvänum is a calm little town and this helped the participants concentrate on the training. Even if most of the training took place indoor, we managed to do some outdoor training (that was much appreciated) and then Kvänum's exellent lawns suited us fine. An important part of the course was also the lectures and questions and answers with Su Donyue.

The dancing group 'BAM' during bellydance Every year in the summer course we have a cabaret (one per course). The atmosphere is very positive and happy in these shows where participants are responsible for the entertainment. They show both talent and joy when they perform with singing, music, dancing, and funny sketches. This year the cabaret got an additional thrill thanks to the grand piano that was at school. We also got a chance to experience bellydance.

Noteworthy is that the quality of the Qi-field has improved from year to year. The training quality has improved and the good results come more often, even for the participants who have been training for some time. The diagram below shows in percent how many of the participants who reported problems before course that got improvements during the course.
