Classes will restart at The Clophill Centre on the first Thursday of the month.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of one of our long studying students, Mary Hawkes. Mary was an excellent student, who not only trained regularly and attended classes and seminars in all of the locations in Bedfordshire, she also travelled far to train with world renowned teachers. She is survived by her sons Alec and Peter. Everyone at our class have fond memories of Mary's gentleness, as well as her natural talent for the martial aspects of the arts, despite being over 80 years old.
In the new year Mir will be offering sessions in RomiRomi, MiriMiri, tradtional Maori bodywork. Details will be posted soon.
We have finished our Qigong, Meditation and Bagua classes for the year and return to Clophill on January the 6th at 7pm. We're welcoming new students of all levels to join us.

We are pleased to announce that Mir's Qigong and Bagua instructor has released his excellent "5 Keys to Taoist Energy Arts Online Course" which is now available through his website, http://www.circlewalking.com. Mir believes that this online course is one of the best introductions to the arts available (as well as studying with any Energy Arts instructors) and that it will give anyone who is searching for authentic and deep training, the answers they are looking for. Mir has studied the system and been studying with Paul since 2001 and is happy to recommend him and any of his teachings (seminars, classes etc.) to anyone with a sincere will to learn.
