We will meet at the South end of the lake at the park bench that is just to the north of the stadium bleachers. We will then walk a little to the SE on the walking trail into a grassy area directly next to the lake to begin our practice.
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, and vitality.
You can drop in or attend regularly. We will start each class with some basics and then slowly learn The Three Circles Form for aligning with a healthy balance of yin and yang energy. This is a form I learned while in China.
Three Circles Qi Gong is a powerful healing Qi Gong form that I learned from one of the Daoist Masters I studied with in China, Master Wan Su Jian.
This simple form can be practiced by anyone. It aligns with the idea of three as a number of new possibility. The three circles are the circle of Sky or Yang energy, the circle of Earth or Yin energy and the circle centered in the human heart. Practicing this beautiful form helps bring harmony, peace and calm.
The summer season is aligned with Heart energy in Chinese Medicine. Opening your heart fully to allow the depth, breadth and subtleties of Life is easily aligned with during these warm summer months! Learn how to embody the natural strength of your human system!
Life is an interconnected web of constant changing energy. Active yang movement landing in receptive yin movement and circling around again. This intersection moves through us each and every moment of our existence.Arising naturally from this dynamic intersection is the human heart’s incredible capacity to include all of life with compassion and love.
This beautiful form supports the time of year when full flowering energy outwards is innate. No prior Qi Gong experience necessary.
