Qigong, an ancient Chinese energy cultivation technique, stimulates and balances the flow of chi, or “vital energy” through the body.
There are four major approaches to qigong training; the body, the breath, the mind and sound. This course will use all four with medical or internal organ Qigong, Daoist Qigong Internal Circulations and meditation. There will be an introduction to the basic meridian concepts, Yin and Yang and Five Elements theories.
This year the focus will be Medical Qigong or Vital Organ Qigong. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the body is treated as an integral system. The system uses energy pathways to link the organs and other human systems into a unified whole, making the communication and interaction between the parts of the body possible. The purpose of this qigong (or mind/energy practice) is to create self-awareness to strengthen the communication.
This Qigong session will also introduce Yin and Yang theory and Five Elements, in the context of creating balance or harmony in the body. We will learn a short and simple Five Elements Qigong moving set comprised of five simple repetitive moves.
There will also be a period of seated meditation practice in each class, learning both basic breathing, internal circulations and relaxation through Taoist qigong practices. This year we will begin to learn the Golden Light Qigong, Big Golden Light and Connecting the Soul Meditations.
The benefits of meditation are now being highly promoted in western society and documented benefits are well researched: see this link for 20 different studies https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/feeling-it/201309/20-scientific-reasons-start-meditating-today
Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi (and Qigong) now have proven what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi (and Qigong) also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind. The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi book has published all the protocol and findings.
These relatively simple qigong exercises and meditation are good for reducing stress, preventing illness, and enhancing overall health.
