If you're a health conscious, action-taking woman who would like to give herself the gift of a self-care weekend in order to learn simple methods to alleviate health issues before they ever become a problem - then join Janice Tucker for a mind calming, revitalising Qigong weekend of adventure!


2nd-4th February 2018


Learn quick and simple methods to supercharge your health so that you feel revitalised, relaxed and ready to take on the world!

ARE YOU STYMIED BY STRESS, ANXIETY, PAIN AND EXHAUSTION?

Do you often feel as though your mind is not your own?

No matter how hard you try, you have no control over the endless, random thoughts whirring through your brain? They're exhausting, right?...They keep you awake at night, impinge upon your waking day, create anxiety, stress and a huge feeling of overwhelm. Sometimes you feel as though your head could literally explode!

And what about your body?

Do you feel in control of it.... or does it feel heavy, draggy, tense, stiff and inflexible, sometimes to the point that you feel physical PAIN....

Do you worry about sliding down a slippery slope of physical health problems in the future with no way to stop the slide?

Sleep is an elusive butterfly...

Does this sound familiar?

It takes ages to go to sleep in the first place then I wake multiple times during the night and can't get back to sleep....when it's time to get up I'm then ready for another 3 hours in bed but instead I have to get out of bed and face into the day exhausted and anxious about how I'm going to keep it together to focus on my job, take care of my kids and get everything done without snapping at everyone I meet or collapsing through exhaustion...

Want to jump off the out of control roller-coaster?

"Fire-fighting" through the day is becoming a repetitive pattern - the new norm for you - and you haven't a clue what to do about it.....to the point where it's making you frustrated and maybe even depressed.

You feel like a hamster in a wheel just going around and around and not getting anywhere - only slipping into a state of more physical and mental exhaustion.

How terrible is it that you maybe can't even remember the last time you were brimming with energy or glowing with health?

SO, DO YOU WANT TO LIBERATE YOURSELF FROM THIS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE SITUATION?

JANICE'S SPACE TO RELAX QIGONG RETREAT INCLUDES:

The best quality instruction from Dr Janice Tucker who has been teaching Qigong since 2003

You will have access to more than 10 hours of easy to follow lessons over the course of the weekend. The video to your right shows students who learned an exercise called The Swimming Dragon in a previous workshop in less than an hour!

 

Free membership of the Space To Relax online course of Qigong lessons for one year (one video lesson per week for a total of 50 weeks!)

  • In contrast to free stuff out there which only tells you what to do, this course explains HOW to learn Qigong exercises in the BEST way possible for you, resulting in the biggest benefits to your health.
  • Each lesson builds upon the previous one so you accumulate your experience step by step. You are guided by me along an easy to follow roadmap which minimises the overwhelm created by some courses offering all their videos at once (so you don't have a clue where to start).
  • The emphasis throughout this course is on how to easily incorporate the methods into your everyday routine (rather than sitting on top of a mountain or standing for hours in a forest meditating!).

Two night's accommodation (Friday & Saturday) in a beautiful house in South Kerry including all meals (except Saturday night)

  • ACCOMMODATION: Rooms will be allocated to you on arrival and you may be required to share, depending on numbers, but all rooms are spacious, warm, bright and modern.
  • FOOD: The meals we will provide are Friday evening, Saturday & Sunday breakfast, Sunday lunch. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. Saturday evening's meal is not included in the price but we will book somewhere to go together depending on everyone's preference at the time.

PRAISE AND TESTIMONIALS FROM PREVIOUS WORKSHOP AND ONLINE STUDENTS

To help you decide if this weekend retreat is for you here are a few questions you might have before deciding embark upon this health-enhancing adventure!

  • What if I have never done Qigong before?

The Qigong methods are very easy to learn so are perfect if you are just beginning Qigong. The beauty of Qigong techniques is that they can be practised by anyone of any age or ability. You are guided by me every step of the way during the weekend so you can be confident that help will always be at hand.

  • Do I have to adopt a new religion or spiritual belief to do this?

Absolutely not. Qigong is simply working with the breath, mind and simple postures to restore your health - and everyone wants to be healthy, regardless of their religion or spiritual belief.

  • I'm worried that I might make a pain/injury worse.

Before embarking upon any new exercise routine you should consult your doctor. If you have back or neck problems especially, you may want to modify the exercises in consultation with your doctor. I provide guidance during the exercises for people with specific health problems (that's one of the reasons why it is important to be able to ask me questions) but keep in mind that it is important to work within your own limits. All of the Qigong lessons can be easily adapted for your individual level of ability.

  • I have attended courses and workshops in the past and often lose enthusiasm/motivation so how will this retreat be different?

Because the Qigong methods take only a few minutes to perform once you have learned them, they will be easy to fit in to your day to day life afterwards. Once you quickly start to notice the benefits this will be all the motivation you need. The emphasis is on integrating the lessons into your day which means it is much easier to stay motivated. Plus you will have one year of free membership to the Space To Relax online course of video lessons which will be delivered to your e-mail address once per week to keep you enthused!

  • I live in South Kerry. Do I have to pay to stay even though I live only a few miles away?

The idea of the retreat is that you can totally immerse yourself in the weekend, interacting with others during the and really giving yourself the time to learn Qigong without distraction. So, even if you live locally, the retreat is set up so that you let us take care of you and so that you don't have to leave your perfectly relaxed "Qigong State" overnight to go home and do cooking or laundry!

  • By what date do I need to pay to avail of the "Early Bird" rate?

The early bird rate of €295 is available until 31st December 2017. After that time the price of the retreat will be €349.

  • How do I pay for the retreat?

You can pay using the PayPal link below or you can e-mail me directly: janice@spacetorelax.com and I'll give you other options for payment if you prefer not to use PayPal.

  • What is your cancellation policy?

Because we need to reserve rooms which would otherwise be used on those dates payment is in full and non-refundable. If for any reason, we cannot proceed with the retreat (for example, due to insufficient numbers to run it) then you will of course be refunded in full.

"WHY SHOULD I LISTEN TO YOU?"

I'm sure you agree that having a teacher who knows their stuff is crucial to how much benefit you will get out of learning Qigong to balance your health.  Here's a bit about me....

  • After leaving behind my biology degree and PhD (primarily because I couldn't get a job when I moved to Ireland) I had to create a different path for myself (or risk falling into the depths of depression) so I studied to be a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner (having spent a stack of money on professional career advice - so worth it!). Having always wanted to help people this was the perfect vocation for me and my biology background certainly came in handy.
  • As a registered member of the Acupuncture Council of Ireland I have 16+ years of experience helping clients to relieve their pain and relax their minds so I've had plenty of time to figure out what works most effectively to bring your health back into balance.
  • I learned these proven and repeatable Qigong techniques at the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Guangzhou, China on 4 separate occasions, initially in 2000. This thorough training was taught to me first hand by 2 highly respected Medical Qigong Professors (Prof. Xia Shuangquan and Prof. Song Xinhong).....so I know what I'm talking about!
  • Hundreds of students in the past 15 years have trusted me to teach them Medical Qigong (Chinese breathing, relaxation, meditation and movements) to promote free flow of energy throughout the body in order to restore physical, emotional and mental health - so I've had lots of practice (I'm also a qualified schoolteacher and have been told I'm a pretty good at imparting knowledge!).
  • AND MOST IMPORTANTLY... I love making a difference to the lives of the people I work with. Showing people who are suffering how to make simple but profound positive changes to their life and health gives me such a buzz - and that's why I've been doing this for 15 years!

SO HERE YOU ARE, AT THE DIVERGENCE OF TWO PATHS...

TAKE PATH 1 - YOU DO NOTHING... and:

  • Your mind chatter and overwhelm will multiply
  • Your mood will continue increase on the grumpy scale of 1 to 10
  • Your energy levels will continue to decline
  • Your physical tension, stress and pain will debilitate you further
  • Your quality of sleep will continue to deteriorate
  • ....need I go on.....?

OR
TAKE PATH 2 - YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE AND DO SOMETHING TO HELP YOURSELF... Here's your NEW typical day:

  • You get out of bed in the morning and practice 10 minutes of Qigong. Immediately your mind is clear, calm and focused.
  • You feel energised and relaxed, ready to tackle the day head on, confident that you can take on the world. Your mood is upbeat, chipper, maybe even gleeful!.
  • Your energy levels have been catapulted through the roof! Your pain has subsided and your body feels loose, supple and relaxed.
  • You have an abundant capacity to cope and get all your stuff done in the day with loads of energy in reserve to pursue hobbies in the evenings and spend time enjoying the company of loved ones.
  • You go to bed knowing that your sleep will be blissfully peaceful and you will wake up the next day feeling like you are walking on air!

Pause for a moment and imagine how days like this will impact on your life and the lives of those close to you......

I'm sure you know from experience that any change takes a bit of effort - but the rewards often pay you back 100x over.

So which path will you choose?  Do you owe this to yourself?  You be the judge.

Any questions? Just get in touch with me: janice@spacetorelax.com.

THIS COULD MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSTANTLY FEELING AT YOUR WITS' END AS YOU (UNSUCCESSFULLY) NAVIGATE THE CHOPPY WATERS OF LIFE... AND SAILING SMOOTHLY THROUGH LIFE ON AN EVEN KEEL!
