WHAT IS QIGONG?
Qigong (pronounced “chee-GONG”) is a Chinese energy healing or energy balancing technique that has been practiced for over 7000 years. Qigong principles form the basis of all Chinese medicine. The base concept is that all Qi is intended to flow smoothly and continuously; to be in harmony and in balance with the Universal Qi: energy, air, breath, vitality, Universal force of life.
Qi: means energy, with life force, a blueprint and intelligence
Gong: means work, use, practice, transform, cultivate, refine
Qigong is a practice of learning how energy works in your body, and in relation and connection with the Universe. In Spring Forest Qigong, we balance and cultivate energy. When our energy is balanced, our physical, emotional and spiritual aspects are more balanced and we enjoy more robust health.
Spring Forest Qigong is a science.
It’s the study of the flow of energy in our body and in nature. When qi flows smoothly in the body, life is good and you are physically and mentally healthy. When the flow of qi is interrupted, energy blockages form and can lead to physical or mental health disruptions .
In a Spring Forest Qigong Practice Group, we meet on Zoom once a week for an hour. There is a teaching segment to the group and then we practice together, ask questions, and share our experiences.
