At it’s most simple level Qi Gong is a basic practice of following and staying present for the continuously unfolding and changing senses of life force energy as these changes move through you. We will be starting at the beginning in this Qi Gong class: Beginner’s mind.
Appropriate for those who have practiced Qi Gong, are practicing, and those who never have and/or want to begin. Beginner’s mind is always profound.
Qi Gong is an ancient system of self-healing consisting of gentle movement exercises that combine breath, slow movement, self-massage, and meditation to harmonize the body, mind and spirit. A dedicated practice can provide countless benefits including increasing calmness, reducing blood pressure, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, regulating the neruoimmunological system and enhancing resilience,strength, balance and vitality.
You can drop in or attend regularly. We will start each class with some foundational basics and then slowly over this series continue to learn the Hui Gong for the Heart Qi Gong form. We started this form in the winter quarter and are continuing. You can join in easily. You do not have to have attended the winter classes.
This standing Qi Gong form is known as Wisdom Qi Gong. This form focuses on bringing the heartmind to tranquility by cleansing. It replaces the train of many thoughts with one thought by using the mind to guide the Qi through the five solid organ meridian systems.
The intent is to wake up the spiritual qualities within the five solid organ energetic systems–the Shen (desire/knowledge) in the Heart, the Hun (imagination) in the Liver, the Po (animal spirit) in the Lung, the Yi (intention) in the Spleen and the Zhi (Will) in the Kidney. These qualities are what make a human a full human.
Not only is a physiological potent awakened but this primary essence evokes the power of pre-immunity. In that way self-healing is created by balancing yin and yang energy.
This particular Qi Gong can help to re-establish emotional equilibrium and maintain a sense of well-being. No prior Qi Gong experience necessary. Optional study book $15.
Embody the grace and beauty of balanced yin and yang!
