A Conduit or Container?

submitted by: admin on 01/10/2015
Conduit vs Container   I believe that the underlying concepts and belief systems that we hold about life affect everything from the way a technique works to the actual physics involved in any action. The things we do in life do not stand alone.  There are no fixed rules that allow something to simply "happen" in an independent way. ...

A gift of life

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
Life has a most curious way of guiding us to the "healing" we require... which from my experience exists on so many levels... I just received an amazing email from an 80-year-old physician who just learned about our Qigong a few weeks ago. At that time he was in a worsening state of health and mobility that just seemed to be getting worse - and...

Acceptance

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
  Acceptance, what a trip! The core of so much of our angst... accepting new things can be tough for us.  ...we get so used to the way things have been... and get a false sense of security for this seeming stability. The Tao Te Ching talks of everything being in a state of constant change. Even things that seem solid are not what...

Action and Inaction

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
(from the Breathe Deep Qigong eNewsletter, August 2005)   ...With hurricane Katrina keeping us acutely aware of nature’s awesome power, many people are homeless, facing devastating challenges, and some have lost their loved ones. May we all hold healing intention for those who are in these situations. Understanding Qigong’s principles...

Body Movement

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
What makes a Qigong exercise "Qigong" at all is that it combines the components of breathing, body movement, and imaging.  I've covered "imaging" - the self-perception use if "Yi" or creative visualization - and breathing... so now let's look at how the body plays part in Qigong.   We practice Qigong to...

Breathing

submitted by: admin on 12/19/2014
  What makes a Qigong exercise "Qigong"at all is that it combines the components of breathing, body movement, and imaging. I find that people take breathing for granted and quickly forget the important role it plays in Qigong.  Sure, you can stay focused with your deep, diaphragmatic breathing while you are exercising and doing your...

Can I Practice Qigong After Back Surgery?

submitted by: admin on 12/19/2014
As far as Qigong practice after back surgery goes, the operative word is “gentle.” Be gentle with your moves, ease slowly into bringing your muscles and tendons back to where they were before the operation. The body can go into a protective mode after such trauma, and this, combined with the natural tightening of muscles and tendons after minimal...

Can Qigong Replace Standard Exercise?

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
What's A Good Workout? Yes, we believe (and studies support us in this) that a well-rounded Qigong workout is more beneficial than weight training and aerobics. The gentle cardiovascular and stretching exercises can do more for you to build your body than high-exertion workouts. The concept is that through slow movement combined with conscious,...

Change and Transition

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
  Change and transition are probably the most difficult aspects of our lives to accept. It is common knowledge that the top three sources of stress are 1) Death of a family member; 2) Divorce; and 3) Employment termination. Each of these is steeped in the challenge of change, bringing with them various levels of tension, sadness and frustration. Change...

Chaos

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
  Everything we do affects the world around us. Whether is it our direct action or our intention, Qi is shifted in the dynamic energy matrix that is in constant flux within and without us. Conversely, everything around us contributes to shift the balance of energy within our physical, mental and emotional/spiritual bodies. Through the course...

Courage to Let Go

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2017
  Life is always reminding us to "let go" of what appears safe and comfortable... Isn't that what Qigong ultimately teaches us? To remember our true nature and to not get attached to the "form" or physical outward expression of who we are.  For me, practicing Qigong helps me to remember these things... that my body...
