2. Feng Shui x 2 Sessions
The principle behind feng shui is that all objects (living and inanimate) contain qi (or chi). Qi is a form of energy that is constantly moving and changing. The goal of feng shui is to keep qi flowing gently through your environment rather than running straight through it. If it becomes stuck or blocked, qi can hurt your environment. Learn how to use these principles in the environment around you.
3. Introduction to Buddhism x 2 sessions
There are many scriptures or canons, with long descriptions of Buddha’s teachings; over the centuries, these have been distilled down to simple guiding philosophies or ‘disciplines’, which are commonly practised in all Buddhist monastic communities. While these disciplines can seem slightly daunting to learn, it is worth taking the time to study his main teachings of The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Pathway, this is what we will learn in this section.

Sufism is the esoteric path within Islam, where the goal is to purify oneself and achieve a mystical union with the Supreme (named Allah in this tradition).

In this section, we will explore Sufi meditation techniques.
