Since the 1960’s Qi Gong, Taijiquan (Tai Chi), Gong Fu (Kung Fu), Meditation, Breathwork, and Yoga have become normal parts of modern culture for most of us in some way.
It is abundantly clear that movement, stretching, stillness, breathwork, and meditation are experiences that many people need to be happy and healthy.
Both Qi Gong and Yoga are embodied Spiritual practices.
Both call us to presence, connection, intention and peaceful abundance. Yoga, for the most part, focuses on Asanas, or fixed postures with endless opportunities for deepening subtleties of awareness and practice. Qi Gong also has this practice, although Qi Gong tends to focus more on repetitive, flowing and circular gestures, stretches, and postural rehabilitation. These repetitive and rhythmic opportunities help carry people into deeper states of relaxation and meditative awareness.
These symbolic and tangibly emotive movements are often combined into larger choreographed series of movements called ‘forms.’
In my experience, an “Embodied Spiritual Practice” is the same opportunity no matter what it is called.
