Healing Communication by Franco Santoro

Healing communication in this world involves a mere and ongoing exchange of unconditional blessings and forgiveness horizontally, amongst human beings. At the same time it implies releasing curses and grievances verticaly, towards those luminous dimensions which can transform them.

Once we start this process we simply keep confirming our blessings horizontally, while releasing grievances vertically. It does not matter how we refine and embellish our language. What counts is that the healing process takes place.

Once we learn to use language for this process, language will not be needed anymore. We will be the process.

I bless and forgive you and me unconditionally.

16th July 2017 from 7am – 7pm

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.”

– Buddha

Buddha already knew that the only path of liberation is the path inwards. Even when we seem to know about these things we often struggle to go within and reach out to the endless wisdom that is stored there. We stumble over our own inability to find the calmness and rest we so much long for. Often we even not aware that the right setting of location and people around us can enhance our spiritual soul searching or decrease it.

For this reason we thought it would be a great idea if we would offer a journey that can bring you together with like-minded people and take you to a place where you have never been before. Because we do believe that a journey on the outside can also trigger the starting point for a journey on the inside. So we decided to arrange a One-Day Bus Trip to Samye Ling in Scotland, the first Tibetan monastery in Europe.

Beautifully settled in the landscape of Scotland, Samye Ling offers a place of peace and tranquillity and enough space for your own thoughts. A guided meditation might be available on request with Julie, if you would like to have some assistance with your meditation practice.

Our Journey

On the 16th of July 2017 we will take you in a comfortable Minibus to Scotland. We will meet at 7am at Saltburn Square where we then will set of in the direction of Scotland. The journey will be about 3 hours till we reach our destination. You will have plenty of time to wander around the premisses, rest, reflect, meditate and have a look into the temple as well the café and Samye Ling Shop. We are aiming to travel back around 4pm but we are flexible about that and we will see how we go on. Bring your own packed lunch or buy some in the local café, in addition to that we will make a pit stop along the way where you get the opportunity to get some refreshments.

The One Day Bus Trip is £38 and only a non-refundable deposit of £20 will secure your space. The deposit is payable via Paypal to blossomofthesoul@gmail.com or via Bank transfer.

We will confirm via email when we received your payment. By paying your deposit you agree to our policy.

If you have any further questions or a medical condition that might can cause some problems for you during this trip, please let us know before the journey starts.

Are you able to walk for 2 miles as we planning a bit of a small mindful walk to the Buddhist Centre? If not let us know and we arrange transport for you.

Free QiGong Healing Event in Saltburn – A reflection

The Free Healing Event with QiGong Master Zhou Zhihao was very successful and our participants learnt a lot.

The event took place in the Woodland Centre in the Valley Gardens in Saltburn on a lovely Saturday morning. Luckily  we were able to do the first QiGong excercise outside and benefit from the natural Qi of the environment.

Zhou Zhiaho told us how important it is to practice QiGong on a regular basis to keep the meridians in the body clean and open so the Qi Energy can circulate freely. Any blockages or stagnation will automatically lead to physical or emotional as well as mental problems or illness. Everything is connected and QiGong and its practice teaches exactly that. Nothing happens separated from the other and we need to nourish our bodies with healthy food, keep them moving with exercise and do regular maintainance mentally.

We learnt on the importance of our emotions and what can happen when we get caught up in them. Therefore we should try to express but also balance them regularly before their imbalance can lead to serious health issues. The 6 relics were one of the healing wisdom teacher Zhou Zhihao had to share on this day. Each relic is a certain chant that helps to release blocked energy of the inner organs and releases what has been suppressed. Similar to chants we can find in Buddhism or Hinduism as well as other religious or spiritual practices.

Food in China is more than just something to fill the belly with. Furthermore in China the people know about the power that lies in certain ingredients, herbs but also vegetables and fruits. All of them carry a certain quality of Qi Energy and deliver a very important part to keep ourselves on track and in balance. Out of this understanding the 5 tastes/smells and energetic qualities were developed and play today a very important part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (more...).

In China people do believe that prevention of disease is more important than anything else, therefore people in China spend a lot of time and thought to prevent illness. This happens not only on a mental level with meditation but  on a physical by practicing Qi Gong, Tai Qi and other Martial Arts Techniques. Nothing happens by accident but everything is related to everything.

Zhou Zhihao taught us how to unblock meridians in our bodies and showed us several self-healing practices. For some of us that was most definitely a very strange and new experience but something we can do all by ourselves at home. Different than in our western culture in china a doctor gets only paid if his patients are healthy, which therefore means he will try everything to keep them healthy. Otherwise in our culture our doctors get paid even more when they offer us pharmaceutical drugs and other things that should cure our problems. Unfortunately side effects and other problems occur and  our western doctors don’t see the relationship of body, mind and spirit.

At the end of our day some of the participants received a free Moxa treatment which helps to clear the meridians. This technique has been known in china for thousands of years and is an important part of healing tradition in china. If you want to read more about a Moxa treatment please read here…

The traditional chinese medicine offers more than a few techniques to stay in balance furthermore it is a profound collection of outstanding healing and prevention techniques. All of them following the one goal – becoming immortal. If you would like to read more about Rainbow Tai Qi and how it can help to improve your life have a look here…

Qi Gong can also be used to heal others if you would like to learn more about this please look here…

A walking Qi Gong exercise can be seen here…

And here you can find an interesting documentary about Qi Gong…

The participant of the Blossom of the Soul Free Healing Event with Zhou Zhihao from China really enjoyed their day. This makes us happy as well…here is some of their feedback and some pictures too.

“Magic to see you n all too ⭐🌟⭐ Super day Thank you so much for helping organizing it and the invite. You still pinching and punching 😆😯😁xx” – Andrew

“Hi Julie, I enjoyed meeting Zhou, thought he was very humble and a real gentleman…” – Terry

“Hi Julie so disappointed that I wasn’t able to stay on Saturday, it sounded really interesting. Felt so much better once I got out in the fresh air…” – Ann

“Thank you Julie ♡♡♡♡ I had such a connecting time, a sweet venue, I felt safe and inspired. Xx” – Jackie

“What a great day…!! Thank you so much…!!” – David

Zhou Zhihao has been teaching Zhineng Qigong worldwide since 2014.


He runs Qigong workshops, retreats in the United Kingdom, China and Pakistan.

His students are coming from all parts of the world and appreciate his wisdom and compassion.

Zhineng Qigong

Zhineng Qigong literally means wisdom healing. It is a powerful system of healing that was developed by Dr Pang in the 1990s in China. The first level of Zhineng Qigong is lift qi up and pour qi down it teaches the student to heal, build energy and maintain/strengthen their own energy or Qi field.

Zhihao’s story

Zhou Zhihao was diagnosed with a malignant tumour in the brain at the age of 19. His family couldn’t afford an operation so Zhihao had to look for alternatives. He left his hometown unable to walk properly as he was in excruciating pain and made it to the Huxia centre in which he was introduced to QiGong. He practised solidly in the group qi field for 6-8 hours a day for three months. One day during practise he felt a snake slithering out of his head and a feeling of lightness. Tests revealed the tumour had gone.

We hope to welcome Zhou Zhihao again in Saltburn and maybe this time we will organize a 2-Day Workshop or a Residential Retreat. If you would like to stay updated then send us an email to julie@blossomofthesoul.org and we send you our monthly newsletter.
