2013 Introduction to 1000 Hands Buddha Schedule:
This course will begin on Saturday 10/19. Class will meet on Saturdays through the end of the year at 4:30pm except for November 30th. I have structured this class as a drop in meditation and so there is no problem if you can't make every class. After practicing 1000 Hands Buddha there will be time for questions and then I will introduce other short forms, including a walking Qi Gong style. Please follow the link above for all the details.
Below is a list of possible additional forms you may request when attending a class.
This is a brief standing exercise taken from two of the eight movements from 8 Treasures which help to strengthen and heal the digestive tract.
This is a third movement taken from 8 Treasures. It is also a brief standing exercise. This routine is helpful in clearing the lungs and chest of congestion and aids in stimulating the immune system.
This is a short standing routine that has many different names and interpretations by different qi gong schools. This form is powerful in treating anxiety and building patience by cultivating a strong and compassionate heart/spirit.
This is a brief routine from the Ling Gui International School of Qi Gong which aids in the storage and circulation of qi in the lower dan tian. It massages all the internal organs and raises qi to the head. Therefore, the form is useful for any digestive discomfort, tension in the chest, and/or memory loss.
This is a simple walking meditation that harmonizes the qi of all the acupuncture channels in the body. This form is excellent in treating fatigue from any cause and is especially helpful when recovering from severe illness.
This is a great event that I am excited to be participating in. If you, or someone you know, has been affected by cancer you should check out the link above. They are a great soon to be non-profit whose mission is to care for cancer patients, survivors and their families.
One of the teachings of Qi Gong is to be in tune with the world around you. One great way to feel this conections is to practice Qi Gong outside. For this reason, during the Summer I lead a class in Gabriel Park. The form I lead is Eight Treasures Qi Gong which is a standing form developed to gently strengthen the tendons and muscles. Though I usually introduce other short meditations as well. Please follow the link above for more details.
