In today’s modern world, mind and body is easily untethered by stress, family, and work. With this challenge front of mind, COMO Shambhala at COMO Point Yamu, Phuket, will be running a six-night ‘Body and Mind’ workshop from 06 to 12 April 2018, led by Qigong Master Per Van Spall. The workshop’s holistic focus — one in a series planned for 2018 by COMO Shambhala — is designed to teach guests how to deepen their mind and body connection through disciplines such as Qigong, Tai Chi and meditation.
Master Per Van Spall is a Netherlands-born energy healer, of Chinese, Indonesian and Dutch descent. He is a certified master in the art of Qigong healing — a special branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine designed to unblock, free and balance chi, or ‘energy’. His deep understanding of both western rationalism and eastern spiritualism allows him to bridge the gap for those new to the concept of energy healing, making this a comfortable, supportive introduction to the mind-body connection. For those with more experience, this is a chance to deepen knowledge of these centuries-old disciplines in an environment geared towards healing.
The workshop will begin each day with exercises to energise the body, closely followed by a group meditation class, where guests are encouraged to listen to the stillness of the morning as they focus on their own breath.
Throughout the day there will be talks and gentle practice in Qigong, breath work and Tai Chi, interwoven with therapies available at COMO Shambhala Retreat, including massage, yoga, Pilates, and Ayurvedic treatments. There will also be one-on-one opportunities, subject to appointments with Master Per, where guests can focus on specific techniques they may want to explore at a deeper level. He will also provide guidance on larger life issues such as stress, lack of motivation or change.
