Chi Time is a show about how to manage your personal energy, to de-stress and recharge  using time-tested movements, meditations and sound. 

The discussions and meditations shared on the show are around the varying manifestations of Chi, with health and wellbeing as a main focus. Chi, or Qi, is the animating principle behind everything we do or be.

It's an invitation to come into your Chi Time, giving yourself to you, to nurture your relationship with the natural energy that underpins everything you do.

Referencing Qigong energy cultivation methods, you can learn how to develop your personal power to manage the overwhelm of stress, tension, fear and anxiety with an attention to what is real, what you can trust and how you can increase your spiritual awareness from nourishing the physical vehicle, body, which houses your spirit on its earthly journey. 

Practically, you will uncover ways to transform the old, create space for the new and raise your frequency as an inspiring, integrated being of co-creative love, colour, shadow, sound and light.

Guests range from international Qigong teachers to sound healers, musicians, writers, facilitators, film directors, storytellers and more, all offering ways to help you cultivate your healing power, nourish your creativity, optimise healing for best health and a harmonious life.

The show is seasoned with tracks chosen for their mind-altering sounds and message, including favourite tunes from guests.

Chi Time is hosted by Clara Apollo, a UK based Elemental Qigong teacher trainer, intuitive energy mentor and co-founder of OneQi, a hub for Qigong teachers in the UK.

    Qigong is a Portal to Personal Power - Dr Roger Jahnke

    Qigong is a Portal to Personal Power - Dr Roger Jahnke

    Dr Roger Jahnke is a doctor of Traditional Chinese medicine, the director of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC) a mind-body research and training centre for teachers and practice leaders who has contributed to research in many respected medical journals.

    It is a congenial honour to be in the presence of Dr Jahnke once again, he first visited us on Chi Time in May 2020 talking about de-stressing and deepening your being with Qigong; https://youtu.be/NkHcSaes_Ho

    Dr. Jahnke's message is simple and empowering: The most profound medicine is produced within us, through the balance and harmony of physiology, mind, and spirit. It's all all about how you presence yourself in the Now, in your power and being. Topics shared are:
    Wu Wei and what that actually means
    Knowledge and intuition 
    Cultivating the 'garden of your being' 
    Yoga, Qigong, shamanic dance, trance dance 
    Finding your own practice * Accessing the Alpha state 
    Taking refuge in yourself - becoming uncontrollable by outside forces
    Operational definition of Qigong - 4 baskets of practice 
    Process to experience these 
    Creating new patterns of health full behaviour 
    Democratising Qigong to make accessible to more people

    Dr Jahnke is a key spokesperson for Tai Chi and Qigong outside of China, has worked with the ancient shamanic roots of these arts, done research to define the evidence base to leverage the credibility of mind-body practices like Yoga & Qigong across all populations and institutions.

    He has distilled the essence of Qi/Prana in his widely revered books; The Healer Within and The Healing Promise of Qigong.

    Crystal Qigong with Glastonbury's Lui Krieg

    Crystal Qigong with Glastonbury's Lui Krieg

    Explore how working with crystals can help activate your inner cultivation techniques and yes, power up your Qigong.

    With Glastonbury’s ‘King of Crystals’ Lui Krieg.

    PROCESS FOR ACTIVATING CRYSTALS INCLUDED

    Weaving Qigong with high vibrational medicine has always been of interest to me. 

    Here we hear how from travelling to the East from his home in Germany, Lui found a freedom lifestyle suited him well and the magical journey that enabled him to be introduced to crystals and their power. 

    He shares wisdom about;
    * The ethical mining of crystals
    * How they grow in the earth over thousands of years, readying themselves to be 'birthed' into the light of activation
    * The range of properties of the Quartz crystal
    * Exploring experientially, he invites us to consider the new Mudra crystals to hold between thumb and forefinger when meditating
    * How to prepare crystals for programming
    * Growing the connection with your favourite ones
    * Energy hygiene with crystals - some to share, some to keep personal 

    Playing us his new mantra-inspired tune 'Within' Lui explains how lockdown was a spacious opportunity for him to explore music and deepen his relationship with crystals.

    I invited Lui onto the show to talk about crystals at this autumnal Metal time of the year in the UK, as this has strong links with the Qigong practice of distilling of the bounty of the year so far, activating ones own discernment and exquisite preciousness within. Too crystallise ones being and nourish the lungs, large intestine and skin. 
    More links with Qigong present themselves as the interview unfolds, especially during the live preparation and activation process. I could hardly speak!!

    Healing Chronic Health Disorders - with Harun Rabbani

    On this episode of Chi Time Harun Rabbani returns teaming with statistics and wise comments on the crossroads we are at for climate and personal energy, including topics like;

    * Self-responsible lifestyle choices boost health in support of creative right action.

    * Promoting self responsibility for personal health and that of our world by being in deeper connection with nature.

    * Responding not reacting to situations lets us take ownership and responsibility for our place on planet, and not rely on politicians.

    * People who are called to qigong, know their energy matters to them, more than being on social media for hours a day!

    * Scary STATS on screen watching time, indicates how we can retrieve more 'me-time/chi-time' to do more what you would like.

    * METAL ELEMENT considerations - discernment, where we place our attention, energy flows

    * Large intestine framing dantien centre of balance. Power of presencing self in the belly, the centre of gut intelligence..
    How does it feel to be in contact with this centre of balance?

    * Our planet is a reflection of the state of us. Boom! Back to why self responsibility is key.

    * IMMUNE SYSTEM - STATS Gut biome creates 70% of our  immune system. How can this affect our mood?

    * SOIL - depletion of soil fungicides with farming methodology 
    How have we collectively depleted ourselves? 

    "The Need to Grow' film cites improving of soil quality of top importance.
    https://grow.foodrevolution.org 

    * TERRAIN THEORY - Dr Robert Young says; "A fish only as healthy as water it swims in."

    * A plant won’t get infected unless it is diseased. It’s not about feeding the plants it’s about feeding the soil.

    * CHRONIC HEALTH DISORDERS - Medication and surgery cannot get rid of these, it’s a LIFESTYLE SYMPTOM, therefore a personal choice empowerment possibility. 

    * Jerusalem artichoke features.. why?

    * What helps with grounding, as well as Qigong? 
    Gardening. Doing this helps reduce inflammation, when connecting to nature and soil

    * The power of the fungal network web beneath soil top. Trees communicate via fungi.

    I ask; "Is what goes on under the ground here, similar to what happens with us in meditation?"

    Also contained are fun facts like how does Harun, who loves to cook highly nutritious and flavourful meals, describe a supremely tasty one?!

    Working with energy, alongside diet and practicing Qigong on a consistent basis will help us become fitter, happier, healthier people. This, unsurprisingly, creates a fit happy healthy planet. The future is in our hands - and hearts.

    Lung strengthening with Metal Element Qigong & Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    Lung strengthening with Metal Element Qigong & Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    LUNG HEALTH
    What can I do to strengthen my lungs? Elemental Qigong - and it's easier than you may think!

    Qigong helps to encourage Qi to circulate in the blood, without taxing the lungs.

    Listen to two qigong teachers, author Mimi Kuo-Deemer and your host Clara Apollo sharing their experiences of how the Metal element helps access deeper lung health, including; 

    * Qigong breathwork - observing, inviting breath to deepen and steady the pace

    * Elasticity of lung tissue - smooth, silken-like, the ease of the breath

    * Running & swimming increases the heart rate which can over tax the heart & stimulate the sympathetic nervous system

    * Qi-moves unblock and promote optimal qi-flow which does not tax the  lungs, rather nurtures them

    * Lengthen & relax approach stimulates qi-flow, called 'pandiculation'

    * Circular and spiral type movements encourage the qi to move through the blood

    * Challenge of qigong is to become more fluid-like, embodying the strength of water

    * Lung tissue is fine and delicate, it's alveoli edges are like leaves 

    * Asthma, covid lung tissue easily damaged leads to stroppy and hardening of tissue 

    * Qigong reminds lungs of their true nature to receive and release air calmly

    * Long, slow, even, deep, refined breaths stimulate the parasympathetic
    nervous system

    And so much more as we unpack the mysterious Metal Element and what this could mean for you to recognise your treasure within.

    A simple breath awareness suggestion is made for you to try.
