Sue Hix, founder of Rosewell Shiatsu Centre
Once upon a time there was a child born in October to parents farming land in a small village in Lincolnshire. When that child grew to walking and following her father around the fields, one sunny afternoon in the long field she asked him “dad if God made man then who made God?” Expecting an answer she waited patiently sitting among the crop waiting to be hoed by the man. He stood for a long time leaning on his hoe and smiling. “well, what’s the answer?” Then he laughed as well as smiling and said “I don’t know and I don’t think anyone knows the answer to that.” The three year old child vowed to find the answer. The intelligence of the child was then shaped and encouraged by centres for learning until finally it was exhausted by such excessive mental conditioning. The instincts of the child led back to the simplicity of nature and the power of touch. These be essential factors in the practise of Shiatsu, which felt like coming home.
After many years of practise, many years of questioning, many years of living in the weather of life, slowly the clouds of conditioning allow the light to shine through and understanding follows increased clarity. The world of Ki comes to life ever more colourfully.
I say to you, my equal human partners that I value all your input. All that helps my soul grow brighter each day and one day I hope to find an answer to that question that so bothered me in the long field.
How can I say to you who I am without knowing myself?
I offer you snapshot experiences from 30 years of life in Shiatsu, Macrobiotics, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga and Meditation. Glimpses of the Ki world, which can inspire, transform and grow your Soul towards lighter times.
We can spend time practising movement in stillness and stillness in movement
I am ready for your questions.
First came to yoga and shiatsu in the late 80s. This followed with Tai Chi in the autumn of 1992, studying Yang Style Long form. In the late 90’s I studied with Christopher Pei from USA with his particular structural clarity. During his weekend seminars in Nottingham he gave is the reasoning and the common sense behind every detail of the form.
I went on to study Wild Goose Qi Gong with Michael Tse which gave a different emphasis to the movement of energy.
My next exploration was into Taoist Practise with Mantak Chia and Kris Deva North, work which developed the movement and circulation of Ki.
I learnt sword and sabre forms and single Fan form Tai Chi and then took up Ice Skating as a way of challenging the physical body in different directions.
I moved on to a significant study of Yoga with Stefan Cunnington from Romania, developing breathing practises and meditation work.
In 2014 I learnt Double Fan form Tai Chi with Mark Corcoran in Peterborough studying as a group.
Currently my new focus is developing equine healing therapy work.
I look forward to meeting you at the Rosewell Shiatsu Centre, a dedicated to the study of energy and healing.
