My qigong teacher, Jeff Primack, is bringing his mind-blowing four day Qi Revolution to our town, Chattanooga, Tennessee, from June 4th -7th, 2011! This is the energy-healing movement that has been a huge part of my own transformation and that I write about in my book, Guiding Principles for Life Beyond Victim Consciousness, in which I describe the process I use for bringing ourselves out of our “physical victim postures” and into right alignment with Source
I am a certified Level 3 Instructor for Supreme Science Qigong. It has been a regular part of my daily practice now for more than three years and I find myself more committed to it than ever. It is a deceptively easy, subtly powerful, and incredibly healing, practice that includes the accessing and harvesting of energy (qi) through movement, breath, and visualization to strengthen and heal the body and mind.
Below is a written description of Qigong that I found on SSQ's website: www.qigong.com.
Qigong is a 5000 year old energy art for strengthening the flow of life force & improving health. Its recent surge in popularity has been a result of Qigong’s fun and dynamic movements of practice. Magnetic energy fields are formed and created in a slow graceful manner. The Qi (life force) literally throbs and pulsates in your hands. Some say it’s the most tangible experience of the spiritual life force energy. It yields a strong “Qi Feeling” in minutes.
200 million people are practicing Qigong worldwide, but it wasn’t always this way. A long kept secret, Qigong was seldom ever taught outside family bloodlines and royalty in China. It gave women the ability to enhance“Jing” (hormones) and retain their feminity for far longer than the average woman. For men, Qigong practice allowed the accumulation of Jing leading to increased sex drive, higher levels of secretion of growth hormones, and extraordinary muscular endurance. This was very useful in war times. Qigong was passed down for thosuands of years from father to son and used by the military to build the body’s endurance. It is quite possibly the most powerful form of exercise on Earth.
Qigong is easy to do and learn, especially with our state of the art energy animation that we teach with. We show people where the “edges of the energy field” are located and this allows a much higher comprehension of Qigong. People are able to practice at a higher level with the recent advancements in audio/video technology.
Our bodies are adaptongenic. We root into the Earth and our legs grow strong like tree trunks. magnetic energy fills our arms. The arteries pulse with greater vigor. From a scientific perspective… Qigong does what no other form of exercise can do. While remaining in a “calm focused and relaxed state” – the body is exercising. This allows blood and Qi to move through blockages that normally cannot be crossed.
Qigong differs from traditional forms of exericse for 1 primary reason: Qigong boosts muscle and strength, yet amazingly lowers cortisol. This cortisol hormone (also known as the “stress homone”) is the enemy of longevity and breaks down muscle tissue creating inflamation in the body. Jogging and weight lifting actually accelerate the release of cortisol. Qigong enhances energy rather than depletes energy, For these reasons Qigong is a superior form of exercise and its healing power is well documented.
We believe Qigong is the most significant self-empowerment technique on Earth. It is based on the fundamental science of life. Regardless of a persons beliefs or cultural background, Qigong yields the same result – enhanced vitality, and a clearer relationship with the True Source of that energy. There is a miraculous universe of Qi within each and every human being. Qigong is the practice of becoming more intimately aware of the miraculous energy that sustains all of our lives.
Beyond the individual, we have discovered a way to blend our energies together with the power of our breath and focus. During our 9 Breath Circle, the group energy field is established and we send our Love to all of humanity and to the Earth herself. The experience is mind blowing and deeply spiritual. We believe that this exercise has the power to create peace on earth.
The benefits are endless.
The energy flows through your body…
