Qigong, an ancient Chinese self-healing art, includes a series of gentle, focused exercises for the mind and body. The system combines slow Tai Chi-like movements, breath work, static postures, self-massage, visualization and meditation to enhance the flow of qi—vital energy or life energy—throughout the body, increasing overall quality of life and improving flexibility and immune function. The practice of Qigong enables the honing of the usually scattered mind into a focused mind, helping to rediscover one’s natural energy, harmony and wholeness—Qigong as portal to Awareness.
Quote from Kabir (1440-1518) One Hundred Poems: “Be strong, and enter into your own body; for there your foothold is firm. Consider it well. O my heart! Go not elsewhere! Kabir says: Put all imaginations away, and stand fast in that which you are.”
You are invited to participate in this Qigong session as a beginner or as an experienced practitioner. You will be introduced to some gentle, simple postures and movements, and the evening will conclude with a short period of meditation. The session, in addition to standing, can also be practiced sitting on a chair.
