QI GONG WORKSHOP

The ASP proposes you an other evening session of Qigong in the month of March. Precisely the 21st of March at 20.00 always in the big room of the ASP!!

After the warm and enthusiastic response received during the first workshop the team wanted to give the opportunity to a second class. Thinking about the ones that missed it the first time but also the ones that really learnt and discover awareness or a bit of consciousness more about their selves.

INTRODUCTION TO THE WORKSHOP:

A calm and relaxed atmosphere, a large and warm room to move, the perfect moment to meet and connect not only verbally but also spiritually with other students like you, a cup of tea and an inspiring teacher that will introduce and guide you in the Qi gong practice.

Those are the elements that will characterize the evening. Qi gong is the perfect holistic system, with similarities with martial arts, to release your mind and body from stress and pressure of the daily life pressure. A method to gather and control energy in your life. It will help you to understand better your self and to balance the relation between mind and body through meditation. Everyone can practice Qi gong, a combination of breathing, posture and movements.

Come and join us in this experience and discover of yourself, be gentle and kind; take one evening for yourself and for your own health. You will be impressed of how much only one workshop can show you of what are your needs in this crazy, busy and fast forward world.

Our teacher Rosanne will lead you in the class and explain you the theory and the practical sides of Qi gong. With her simplicity and clearness learning and making part of you the lesson will be easy and playful. She is a pure spirit that like everyone of us felt the need to let go of the frenetic stress in her life at one point and found in Qi gong the perfect way to take care of herself both in a physical and intellectual way.

For the workshop you will need to wear comfortable shoes, your socks or even bare feet. The only thing that you need to bring with you is a water bottle and will to learn, grow and your open mind.

Practising Qi gong is so simple and so powerful. You cannot do it wrong. You can only do it good, better, or best.” ~Chunyi Lin

Don’t forget the date, we will wait for you the 21st of MARCH 2017 at 20.00 in KASTNJELAAN 22-E (ASP centre) to relax and find new energy together!!!

Board Game Night

DIXIT DESCRIPTION:

One player is the storyteller for the turn and looks at the images on the 6 cards in her hand. From one of these, she makes up a sentence and says it out loud (without showing the card to the other players).

Each other player selects the card in their hands which best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others.

The storyteller shuffles her card with all the received cards. All pictures are shown face up and every player has to bet upon which picture was the storyteller’s.

If nobody or everybody finds the correct card, the storyteller scores 0, and each of the other players scores 2. Otherwise the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3. Players score 1 point for every vote for their own card.

The game ends when the deck is empty or if a player scores 30 points. In either case, the player with the most points wins the game.

The base game and all expansions have 84 cards each.

Board Game Night

WAREWOLF DESCRIPTION:

Werewolf takes place in a small village which is haunted by werewolves.

Each player is secretly assigned a role – Werewolf, Villager, or Seer (a special Villager). There is also a Moderator who controls the flow of the game.

The game alternates between night and day phases. At night, the Werewolves secretly choose a Villager to kill. Also, the Seer (if still alive) asks whether another player is a Werewolf or not. During the day, the Villager who was killed is revealed and is out of the game. The remaining Villagers then vote on the player they suspect is a Werewolf. That player reveals his/her role and is out of the game.

Werewolves win when there are an equal number of Villagers and Werewolves. Villagers win when they have killed all Werewolves. Werewolf is a social game that requires no equipment to play, and can accommodate almost any large group of players.

BOARD GAME NIGHT

Once again our Board Game Night is coming back for the usual appointment with the ASP during Tuesday nights. In the month of March the selected date is the 7th at 20.00.

An occasion that the Deep Gang from Arnhem Student Point wants to give all the students in Arnhem and surroundings to relax and develop their creativity and spontaneity while spending a good time having fun and meeting new people.

We will welcome you in a cosy and warm atmosphere and propose you to play with us while having a cup of tea or enjoying a little snack. The night offers three different options but our team is always open to new proposals and ideas.

The possibilities are DIXIT, WAREWOLF and a new entry…the GIRAFFE JAR GAME.

If you are getting curious more and more about it and you never heard something like that is because this game is a neologism from our team.

It will consist in some simple steps and rules, easy to play, easy to learn and follow but also engaging both mentally and physically:

The players are going to be divided in groups and the single components of each group will be challenged by their own colleagues.

Speed is also a main element to achieve the first place but most important of all is empathy and open mind, capability to make connections and understand every little hint or cue from the others.

Starting from a random word written on a paper and hidden in a jar a member of the team is going to first describe it with other synonyms or words and then mime it to the rest of the participants.

Strange and funny misunderstandings will raise up your creativity and your laughter.

A friendly way to get to know how instinctively people think and how to be clear with your decisions and movements.

Qi gong beginners exercise

Intrducing our second evening of Qi gong Workshop, here a simple exercise to give you a little bit of the taste:

Flowing Qi

Start by sitting forward on the edge of the chair, with feet flat on the floor in front of you. With your feet rooted to the ground, imagine that your body is afloat. Let your head float above your relaxed neck like a float on the surface of water. To let your spine feel free, imagine a gentle sensation of someone lifting you from above, as if there were a string attached to the crown of your head. Inhale, and let the energy within you allow your arms to rise to shoulder height. On the exhale, return your arms to your sides. Repeat this several times, becoming increasingly aware of the energy within that propels the movement of your arms.
