Vienna workshop details

We are pleased to let you know about the Chinese New Year’s weekend workshop with Keith in Vienna:
Date: 28/29 January 2017

This workshop is suitable for all current students.

Important: The training hall has an immaculate parquet floor on which we are not allowed to walk on with street shoes, so please bring seperate (and clean) training shoes with soles that do not stain the floor (no black soles – except some of the black vivobarefoot soles apparently do not stain – please check!) and change into them once you get there, otherwise I might have to ask you to remove your shoes…

For those coming from abroad we will try our best to accommodate you with one of us, or help find suitable accommodation in the right area (air bnb or hotels). Please let me know accordingly as space is limited.

On Saturday evening we will be welcoming the Fire Rooster Year with a celebratory meal and the (almost traditional) fortune cookies with Roy’s messages – more details to come in a seperate email.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you will be attending the workshop and/or the meal : manhi.son@gmail.com

Thanks,
and wishing you all a happy new 2017!

A MESSAGE FROM ROY JENZEN

HELLO EVERYONE,

FIRSTLY, MY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO PUT TIME AND PROCESS ASIDE TO ATTEND MY RECENT WORKSHOPS THROUGH EUROPE. IT WAS A VERY GOOD SERIES OF ‘GETTING TOGETHER AND MOVING THINGS ON’ (CONTRARY, PERHAPS, TO THE GENERAL MOVEMENT THERE), AND I HOPE THAT INSIGHT AND DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THIS WONDERFUL WORK WAS THE OUTCOME.

IT WAS CERTAINLY THE INTENT, WHETHER IT BE A TIMELY RETURN TO THE ROOT OF OUR WORK, A MORE EMBODIED UNDERSTANDING OF THE NEIGONG, A DEVELOPING OF OUR LINEAGE-METHOD SWORD FORM INTO ITS COMBAT HERITAGE, OF BAGUA INTO ITS CONSTANT CHANGE PRINCIPLES OR OF A RARE 3RD DOOR LOOK INTO THE PROCESS OF NEIDAN, ‘SIMPLY’ THE REFINED PRODUCT OF SOUND FUNDAMENTALS AND EMBODIED NEIGONG SKILLS ..

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT MOST OF THIS WORK CAN BE FOLLOWED UP BY THE VARIOUS TEACHING STUDENTS OF OUR SCHOOLS IN EUROPE, AND KEITH (BRIGHTON, UK) HAS ALSO GENEROUSLY OFFERED TO HOLD DEDICATED WEEKEND WORKSHOPS FOR JUST THIS PURPOSE IN ALL BRANCHES OF OUR SCHOOL FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR, SO IN CZECH, GERMANY, AUSTRIA AND ENGLAND. I WOULD URGE EVERYBODY WHO UNDERSTANDS THE VALUE OF THIS TO ATTEND AS MANY OF THESE AS POSSIBLE – PARTICULARLY IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT JOINING US FOR OUR FIRST 9-DAY RESIDENTIAL EUROPEAN INTERNAL INTENSIVE NEXT MAY (2017), WHICH WILL BE OPEN TO ALL CURRENT STUDENTS, BOTH INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED. IT PROMISES TO BE BOTH INSIGHTFUL AND TRANSFORMATIONAL, NOT TO MENTION DEMANDING.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON COMING WORKSHOPS WE WILL SOON BE UPDATING OUR GENERAL WEBSITE, SO PLEASE GO TO THAT AS NEEDED : WWW.INTERNALINTENT.COM

MANY THANKS,

ROY

For the guys from Germany there are (beside driving) good flight connections

from Frankfurt to Prague or Vienna and
from Hamburg to Prague or Vienna, both 140 to 180 euros.

Then by bus or train to Slavkov via Brno (200 km from Prague, 120 km from Vienna, there’s also a direct bus from the Vienna airport to Brno https://www.studentagency.eu/en/ and an “almost direct one” with the same company from Prague airport).

We very much hope that there will be many of you who will find their way to the land of southern Moravia 😉 It will be worth it!
