A three year facilitators training course during which you will develop the sensitivity and ability to work with energy; the universal life force. We will learn the Tai Chi Long Form as well as Chi Kung, energy work, healing with energy and how to cultivate inner calm, peace and a greater connection to our soul forces. We all emanate a vibration which shows our inner state, if we want to become more responsible world citizens and assist mankind, we have to learn how to manage our inner world and outer being, the common link is energy. To work consciously with energy transforms the inner state into a more peaceful and harmonious vibration; this course will then lead to being able to facilitate this process in others.
“Transform Your Outer Reality by Transforming Your Inner Nature”
Energy is the common factor that links and permeates the whole of life, to work with energy and vibration is to work with the essence of life itself. Our peace, happiness and wholeness depend upon our vibration and the understanding of how to cultivate it. Sadness, fear and anger are also vibrational frequencies; through the art of internal alchemy we can learn to transform these energies for our growth and inner stillness.
In nature plants grow well if given the right conditions, sunlight, nutrients, water and oxygen in the correct balance. Human beings are the same, they need the right conditions to flourish and grow into their full potential. Sometimes we need to be ruthless and weed out what no longer serves us; sometimes we need to learn to accept and love our imperfections and bring them into the light to be healed.
We are a microcosm and whatever we do affects the macrocosm therefore we have a responsibility to maintain and cultivate inner balance. Through the interconnectedness of life our actions and even our thoughts have a ripple effect on the universe. When we understand this we realize how important it is to move from fear to love; from condemnation to acceptance; from lack to generosity and from anger to understanding.
The Moving in to the Light Course will assist this process back to a natural state of light, vibrancy and understanding. You will learn skills, techniques and tools for self transformation, leading to a more wholesome and natural existence, which you can then use to help to benefit others.
This course can be taken as a path to greater physical health, more balanced emotions, increased mental calmness and spiritual development. If you choose to take the path of personal radiance, none of the written work or assessments need to be undertaken and you can simply use the course for your own unfoldment.

That is Spirituality”
The essence of the course is the expansion of awareness into our true nature leading to a deeper self-acceptance, inner peace and stillness, which is already within us, waiting for us to access it.
The course is a unique and integrative course where we learn to use energy to bring about inner and outer transformation. Energy awareness expands awareness of that which is “hidden” behind the whole of life, helping us to have greater understanding of the natural patterns and rhythms of our own lives and of the nature which surrounds us. There is a natural wisdom in the whole of life, which is continually showing the way to balance and harmony. By connecting with these patterns and rhythms we then create this balance and harmony in our own lives.

“Peace comes not from the absence of conflict but from the ability to cope with it” (Anon)
Aspects of the Course
The earthly plane can be incredibly challenging and in order to get the most out of life we need to look beyond what is immediately present. A deep understanding of ourselves, of energy and of Spiritual truths helps to free us from the constraints of this world and move towards a richer, less limiting existence.
Chi Kung and Tai Chi
On the course we will learn how to harness the body wisdom through the harmonious whole body movement in the form of Chi Kung and Tai Chi. You will learn, warm ups, “Moving Standing Like a Tree”, the 6 Healing Sounds, The Golden Sun Series, 5 Elements Chi Kung, The 8 Brocades, The Bone Marrow Cleanse and the Tai Chi Long Form, to release the vitality, health and wisdom of the body.
Body Mind Link
We will examine the body mind which reflects our inner state of harmony and health. Sickness or injury is the body’s way of trying to get our attention to take more care of ourselves; this may be physically, emotionally or mentally. Mindfulness and self-awareness enable us to access subtle internal messages before dis-ease manifests. Conflict within the mind always registers within the body creating tension. We will learn relaxation techniques to release tension and to free the mind of conflict. Inner conflict and disharmony manifests on many levels:- Physically as disease or injury Emotionally as fear, sorrow or anger Mentally as worries, regrets, contradiction and confusion. All these manifestations offer us an opportunity for self-examination, reflection and healing.
We will introduce an integrative and innovative way of working with the charkas, and understand how the various movements and visualisations bring about greater harmony in the energy body. We will work with assisting the healthy flow of energy through the chakras thus helping the expansion of awareness and consciousness.
All Tai Chi and Chi Kung is a moving mediation and we will use the art of internal alchemy to assist the transformation that is an integral part of the course. Sitting meditation will be used to focus on the light and the opening of the heart to understanding, peace and compassion, thus allowing the love within to shine forth.
It is our desire and inspiration to bring out in to the world well trained and compassionate facilitators who work with the light. We intend to support and assist in whatever way we can to enable this process and to eventually create a team of “Light Workers”. These facilitators will not be limited to just the traditional Spiritual areas of life, but can take this light in to any area it is requested, be it industry, health, education or politics. For this reason the course has a solid firm foundation with attainable and understandable transformational tools.
