Weekend retreat – qigong and talks on living well and long

I’m teaching a retreat at a lovely old Quaker house in the Oxfordshire countryside on the weekend of September 9th to 11th.

There’ll be lots of qigong (focusing on the baduanjin – eight silken movements – form) plus talks on different aspects of yangsheng (the Chinese nourishment of life tradition).

We worked hard and had fun last year and I’m really looking forward to going back there.

Live Well Live Long – YANGSHEN – with Peter Deadman

A Weekend Residential                       £440

9-11 September 2022 (Friday evening to Sunday afternoon)

In September 2022 we are returning to the peaceful location of Charney Manor following last year’s residential to continue with the invaluable teachings outlined in Peter Deadman’s book, ‘Live Well Live Long’. This draws on the wisdom of the Chinese nourishing life tradition as well as the latest thinking from scientific research.

The weekend will be an enjoyable and potent mix of qigong and lifestyle education. Our guest tutor Peter Deadman will teach qigong forms (backed up by videos) as well as how we can cultivate our minds, emotions, bodies, and breath to increase health and wellbeing.

The event will be suitable both for beginners and advanced practitioners of qigong but a moderate level of fitness is recommended. There will be several hours of qigong every day, in addition to health and lifestyle talks.

Contact us on the Bookings page if you are interested in attending or reserve your place early with a deposit.

    Hi Peter,
    Can you tell me a bit more about the schedule for the weekend? Start time on Friday (I presume?) and finish time on Sunday?

      Hi Robert. Arrival time is 4pm Friday though I don’t expect much will happen till around 6. Finish time is 4pm Sunday, though last year we finished earlier -= maybe 2.30 as we decided everyone was full. Peter
