Ancient Chinese Self-Healing Practice Weekend – Askamore Qi (pronounced chee)

Layout 1


Qigong is gaining much attention in the west due to its tremendous physical and emotional benefits.
There is much research which has already been carried out of the effects on ill heath from this ancient practice.
It’s known to be similar to acupuncture but without the use of needles. Instead it is done by using the breath,  a focused mind, active moments and through sound – accessing our own internal healing abilities by gentle exercises and meditations.
Elizabeth is currently carrying out research on the effectiveness of qigong energy balancing with senior army, naval and airforce officers at NATO Headquarters in north London. The feedback of ‘unbelievable’ ‘incredible’ and an ‘eye opener’ is among the commentaries  being recorded so far. Self evaluations of stress, pain and tension levels in the body are being reduced dramatically after a 20 minute session.
The issues which Elizabeth aims to address  on the Sunday may include:
heart conditions, migraines, back pain, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and thyroid problems.
People are encouraged to wear very comfortable clothing. If they wish to bring a soft shawl that’s recommended and to also have a bottle of water throughout. All of the meditations will be done sitting in chairs but if people choose to have a yoga mat, they can choose to do so but this is not really necessary.
This weekend is open to everyone over 18 – both male and female – booking details below.

On behalf of the Hope Cancer Support Centre I would like to invite you to come along to an information evening about our services at Gorey Library.

As the demand for our services continues to grow we want to look at the possibility of providing more support in the Gorey area.

While we are based in Enniscorthy, people come to us from throughout the whole county, so it is important that we reach out to the wider communities to let people know what we do.

We want to hear your voice and from there we will see what the needs are in your area.


Our service offers emotional/psychological support for anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis, those who care for them, and those who are bereaved. While we are based in Enniscorthy. Our support is available for all of County Wexford and its environs .

We would like to invite you to come along to our information evening in Gorey to find out about us and what we do
