About Obelison

I am Marc Price, and 'Obelison' is my Worcestershire-based teaching and coaching practice. My aim is to support businesses and people to make a positive difference in this world, through three distinct paths:

  • technical teaching/mentoring/coaching (software, computing, and electronics engineering);
  • workplace wellbeing consultancy/coaching to minimise sedentary and posture issues; and
  • teaching/coaching Tai Chi, Qigong, and Meditation.
Although distinct, these paths are inevitably interdependent, as the philosophy and practices of Tai Chi and Meditation underpin all that I do. While the connection is obvious for the latter of these paths, some explanation is needed for the other two.

Since 1984, I have followed a career in Electronics/Software Engineering, and I have been teaching specific topics in this as a University Lecturer since 2014. A large part of this role takes a coaching approach to supporting people in their learning. Hopefully, no further detail is needed to establish my credibility to teach/mentor/coach in these fields!

However, in my spare time, I also pursued interests in the nature of Personal Reality, through studies in a variety of subjects. From 1999, my studies began to turn towards 'The Buqi System', which is based on a profoundly effective model of health that encompasses body, mind, and spirit. Tai Chi and Meditation are key components of The Buqi System, which I have been publicly teaching since 2008, and I found that it has valuable applications within my 'day-job'.

I found that the 'mind' aspect of the system is particularly useful in solving complex problems, which supported me in my work as an Engineer. Moreover, I found that the 'body' aspect, and its intimate connection with 'mind', gave me effective approaches to managing 'stress' through changing my posture, my movement, and my thinking. In turn, this further supported my approach to problem-solving in my work.

With Obelison, you can now apply this approach to your business, your staff, and your self. Scroll down for further details.

Do you and/or your staff suffer with one or more of:

  • high levels of psychological stress?
  • high levels of physical stress?
  • high levels of posture-related illness?
  • high levels of sedentarism (ie many hours each day sitting down)?

The Obelison approach is NOT 'Corporate Tai Chi', or 'Corporate Meditation', where we simply offer weekly in-house classes.

Instead, our aim is to address modern wellbeing issues within the workplace, (eg stress, posture-related illnesses, and sedentarism), through bespoke Programmes that draw on the underpinning philosophies and practices of Tai Chi and Meditation. Although weekly exercise classes may be a component, the more crucial parts of the Programme would be consultancy and coaching/mentoring to deliver the necessary changes.

One of the key concepts that this approach is based on is the 'Double Viscious Circle' model of physical and psychological stress, as discovered by Dr Shen Hongxun. This model exposes the relationship between risk factors of stress and illness, and points to how key foundational elements of Tai Chi and Meditation can be employed to mitigate them.

The Obelison Approach works on training the necessary changes so that they become embedded into 'muscle memory'. Click the 'Sign-up' button to receive further information and updates.
