Qi Gong (Chi Kung) is an embodied healing and spiritual practice that involves:
- Gentle and Rhythmic Movement
- Deep and Slow Stretching
- Transformational Breathwork
- Whole Body Relaxation
- Cultivating Awareness
- Meditative Presence
- Profound Immersive Stillness
With regular practice, most people reawaken a subtle ‘energetic’ awareness of their somatic, physical, emotional, spiritual, and instinctual experience.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong is considered to be the most potent form of healing!
This practice originated with the Indigenous people of Asia about 7000 years ago, as a form of healing, prayer and communion with nature.
At present, Qi Gong is practiced all over the world as a method of healing oneself and others, enhancing athletic and martial arts capabilities, as well as cultivating Spiritual awareness and a deeper connection with nature.
Also called Chinese Yoga, Qi Gong is world-renowned for its low impact exercise, gentle and scientifically proven health benefits. In the last two decades, the increased availability of instructors has made it possible for many people to cultivate this life-enriching practice and to transform their day-to-day lives.
There are thousands of different styles and lineages of Qi Gong. There are just as many purposes and unique intentions in this vast resource of practical wisdom.
This program combines modern Qi Gong and Trauma Theory with the original Daoist practice called Dao Yin.
This approach focuses on a gradual exploration of your instinctual embodied experience and vitality, your intuition and ‘energetic’ sense of the world, your relationships, and your existential journey of finding a balance of meaning and mystery in your spiritual life.
