IPEA Conference 2016
The International Polarity Education Alliance conference which was held at Charney Manor in the lovely countryside of Oxfordshire. England.
Wow that was my first IPEA conference. What an eventful weekend. Not knowing what to expect I arrived with an open mind and heart and I was not disappointed. The drive up to Oxford had been pretty scary as the rain lashed down and visibility became difficult, but, being typical British weather the rain stopped and in the blink of an eye the sun shone, but the rain followed us up from Wales. it really made a spectacle of itself with heavy rain and thunder…having so much energy in one place ..no wonder the heavens opened and the thunder came.
What a lovely place it was to stay in and the food was great…having to cater for all our different needs was handled well.
It was great to meet lots of lovely people from all around the world with great ideas on how to incorporate other aspects of holistic work into Polarity and vice versa
Polarity is part of every therapy. It is the heart of all therapies.
Thank you to everyone who gave a talk, giving us an inside into your use of polarity, this kept us talking for hours. It was midnight before we were going to sleep, then having to get up early in the morning for Yoga with Lea-ann Furphy ..which was fab… yes Lea-ann now I’m hooked. And thanks to Chris McGrath for making us be water molecules and running around the garden was so much fun ..until rain stopped play…again
A visit to Winston Churchill’s family home Blenheim Palace on Sunday afternoon alas was cut short as Elton John was giving a concert there that evening, but we did have time to look around the beautiful house and the gardens which were lovely.
Once again our table at dinner time let the side down as we laughed non-stop for almost all of the hour…I blame Lea-ann and Myriam Berger how could something go from Churchill’s pyjamas that were a lovely burgundy velvet onesie to rabbits …I just don’t know
The last day …a true feeling of sadness….from a gentle qi gong in the morning with Chris….. to saying goodbye to everyone was quite overwhelming
I don’t know of any other holistic therapy that has a gathering, That’s what makes Polarity very special.
Now where is the next one!!
