Qigong

Qigong meditation is an antidote to depression, anxiety, fear, worry, obsessive thoughts, sleeplessness, and many other symptoms. Many people suffer these symptoms as a result of their personal history.

In this day and age there is also much angst because of the economy, the political situation, ecological issues, and the rapid changes technology brings to our daily lives.

Through gentle movement, visualization, sound, breathing and conscious intention, this 5000-year-old practice restores the creative life force energy within oneself, which is necessary to heal the body and the mind.

The word, “chi” (also spelled qi) means the energy that creates and transforms. I teach a form of qigong invented by Dr. Pang Ming, called Wisdom Healing Qigong. Dr. Pang distilled this form of qigong to most facilitate healing.

He says: “it is the refinement of consciousness to enhance the state of chi in the body that leads to vibrant health, a harmonious body and mind, and an awakened spiritual life.” Through gentle movement, visualization, sound, breathing and conscious intention, this 5000-year- old practice restores the creative life force energy within oneself, which is necessary to heal the body and the mind.

In ancient Chinese, the word for the heart is “Shen,” which means heart and mind, which are not separated as in English and Western culture. In my experience, qigong restores the balance of chi in the body, which naturally opens the heart. This then brings one into a balanced relationship to love and life.
