International photographer and film maker Serena Stevenson takes you on an emotive story journey that combines the 5 body elemental Qi Gong exercises, for opening the Qi (life force) in each vital organ and the art of being present with photography. The camera acts as a tool to bring you to the awareness of your body through your emotions.

Good health can be maintained by regular checks with your body through your feelings. Your body feels out of balance when life meets challenges, to connect with your body awareness means listening to the messages of discomfort and comfort.

Qigong (pronounced chee-gung) is an ancient art of transformation thought to have originated as a form of dancing more than 5000 years ago. ‘Qi’ means breath of air, ‘Gong’ is a general term meaning work or self discipline. Hense term ‘Qigong’ translates as energy exercises.

These exercises are soft and gentle, anyone can learn, no special equipment is needed. It is a perfect form of self-health care and reflects the Chinese Philosophy of looking to nature for healing. 5 Elemental Emotion Qigong focuses on the 5 Yin organs of the body.

Serena has been one of Splore's official photographers for over 12 years. 2018 sees Serena  giving Splorers the opportunity to participate in a uniquely designed creative healing workshop. With her passion for emotive meaningful story telling, the balance of being present with a photographers heart, and eyes, this workshop will be a truly memorable experience.

Please bring your phone or camera to the sessions.
