It was special, better, more difficult and more exhilarating to practice QiGong in the air open, under the sky, with voices all around, insects making their curious dances in the air. We met at Volkspark in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin, at the Platz der Vereinten Nationen.

Afterwards, we lay in the grass, talking and making chains from the abundant daisies and clover flowers then, as the sun left the part of the park we were in, we took a slow walk around one of the most popular parks that is a more frequent spot for locals than tourists and other visitors. We were searching for the last spots of sunlight and found them. My photos are from “incoming” from Frankfurter Tor to the M6  tram lines along Landsberger Allee.

    • Honestly, the midges or little flying bugs were driving me crazy, but the teacher said…I needed more concentratation to accept those distracting sensations and still be able to concentrate on my breathing and movements. I said, “Yea, okay.” I was thinking of bells though….

  2. Ah yes, I do know what that’s like, very much as in meditation :) But thinking of bells sounds nice, helps to anchor attention!

    • I didn’t go tonight, was too tired, hot and dirty after work, but I really should make QiGong here. But maybe I will do it in the morning, since I keep waking up so early.
