Originally from Yorkshire, Jason Barrick is a Qi Gong Instructor and meditation teacher. His teaching is informed by over 30 years of metaphysical exploration and 15 years spent in Asia, studying and practicing many forms of healing arts and meditation. These include Kriya Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Advaita Vedanta, Ayurvedic Massage, Acupressure, Thai Massage, Japanese Reiki, Kikko, Zen Buddhism, Vipassana, Qi Gong and Nei Gong.
In 2012, after a month in the Kriya Yoga ashram in Rishikesh, Jason happened across a Dharma teacher, the late Da Dennis Trisker. Within ten minutes of meeting Dennis, time and space conspired to enable transmission of the Dharma. Jason returned from this first Samadhi to find himself sitting in a restaurant, uncontrollably laughing, and seeing a tree for the first time.
Jason has been teaching Qi Gong and Energy Work for 11 years, and Meditation for five years. The insight gained from emptiness helps Jason demystify mysticism and gives a depth to his teaching. He finds Qi Gong to be a perfect vehicle for Wu Wei, or effortless action. By learning effortlessness in the physical dimension, we open ourselves to effortlessness in the mental dimension. It is by sitting in this state of mental effortlessness that Samadhi can arise.
Jason is also an industrial electrician and has experience as a college tutor. He has taught in a variety of settings, from the beaches of Goa, to the Himalayas, to the church halls of Yorkshire, to students of all different backgrounds.
