The well-structured seminars consist of breathing / movement exercises, self-massage and meditation.
We learn to use movement, breath and perception to sense and direct the flow of life energy.
In this way, energy blockages can be eliminated. When the life energy flows unhindered, inner peace, harmony and healing arise.
It was a very important holiday for me, with self-discovery and big, inner changes.
For the first time in my life, I am free of addiction.
Can you imagine what that means!
Dr. Jorgos Pappas
Core Subject: Qi Gong and Meditation
in 1993 he founded "ILIOHOOS - the school of simple life" - in Pelion. The guiding idea is to discover the omnipresent life energy and consciously use it for a better life.
The Seminarhaus Iliohoos is located directly on the beach on the edge of the small idyllic fishing village of Kalamos. Kalamos lies at the foot of a green hill with olive, lemon, and orange trees.
The mediated contents form an independent health program for everyday life.The courses take place outdoors in a quiet, dreamlike olive groves.The spacious seminar room (about 100 square meters) is built of wood.
Excerpt from the Qi Gong seminars:
- Breathing exercises in the style of Tai Chi / Qi Gong
- "The Return of Spring", a special detoxification exercise for the body
- "The silkworm exercise", collecting the cosmic qi and pouring out the seven chakras (the endocrine system).
- Taoist meditations that open the meridians of the body. They naturally lead to the special "Qi Gong Condition", a deep state of rest that contributes to well-being and holistic self-therapy.
- The formation of the golden light, a meditative exercise built on the theory of the "five elements" of traditional Chinese medicine and the Taoist doctrine of inner alchemy. His main goal is to produce the healing light in the lower Dantian (in the lower abdomen) in order to spread it throughout the body. This exercise detoxifies and revitalizes the internal organs while harmonizing the emotions. It is easy to learn and forms the foundation for advanced Taoism meditation practices.
- The Fundamental Exercise, a meditative exercise that opens the lower chakras of the pelvis.
- Hso Wan, "All Forgotten", a classic relaxation exercise of the Taoist tradition
- The little celestial energy cycle
- Self-massage of the face and head that stimulates the senses and revitalizes the internal organs; an excellent "cosmetic" for the face and skin.
- A special stomach and lower abdominal massage to strengthen the digestive and nervous system
- The theory of the "Five Elements" and their application in everyday life
- The "Six Healing Lutes"
