First Poetry & Qigong Retreat
8 wonderful people - women and men from different cultures, countries and industries - gathered for our first Poetry & Qigong Retreat at Gurk Abbey this past weekend. We got inspired by the landscape, the architecture and history of the place, and by beautiful poetry. We enjoyed practising qigong in the garden, sharing our thoughts, reflecting together and having lots of fun! I am deeply grateful that our first Retreat was such an enriching, inspiring and insightful experience for all of us. Today, I received a poem from Klaus. He agreed that I share it on my personal blog.
Hello Christina and all of you!
The menu of the weekend by the chefs Christina and Hermine was nutritious,
and we all together made it delicious:
the spirit of the group
created a magnificent soup,
the white, bright Qi
added loads of energy
and spicy herbs of poetry - we wrote some.
Altogether it was really wholesome.
This weekend was so kind,
it will stay for long in my mind.
