Move, Breathe, Relax…
Come to Your Senses!
In “The West” we tend to focus on working out, when we exercise and seem to believe that there is no gain that comes without pain.
Our external approach to exercise ignores the internal, deeper, currents of our being, based on a paradigm that does not fully acknowledge the interconnected nature of things, including the mind and body. Far too often our lives are spent in “busy”ness. Interestingly, in Chinese language, the character for busy combines the characters for the heart …..and death! While this may not be an exact translation, it does indicate that if life lacks a reasonable balance of work, rest and play it isn’t good for health.
Qigong is a Chinese system of exercise which draws us beneath the surface of our overstimulated lives. You might say it is working in; a beautiful blend of exercise and meditation that makes the mind and spirit tranquil, improves performance in sports, and cultivates health, well-being, and longevity.
•* “complimentary” means free. While it is true that access to improved energy flow is freely accessible to all, I believe what was meant above is that Qigong practice can complement any other form of healing or exercise.
