This workshop takes the world renowned 8wk Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction curriculum and infuses it with the ancient practices of Medical Qigong.
Why would one add Medical Qigong to Mindfulness?
Well, mindfulness helps us to BE with the present moment as it is without trying to change it, giving us a better understanding of how to move forward with compassion. Medical qigong offers us various ways to respond to each moment with practices that help us to affect change with wisdom and compassion. So while mindfulness helps us to ACCEPT the moment medical qigong helps us to AFFECT the moment.
What is Medical Qigong?
Medical Qigong refers to the 5,000 year old practice of Chinese Energetic Medicine. "Qi" (pronounced "chi") means "energy" and "gong" means "the skill of working with." In this class you'll be guided through the use of posture, gentle movement, intention, concentration, visualization, breath work, and your ability to vocalize healing sounds to 1) purge the body of Qi that is no longer of highest service 2) nourish the body with fresh new Qi and 3) bring balance to the flow of Qi through the body.
