Study Qigong

Qigong instruction focuses on helping the student achieve a wonderful sense of physical well-being, a calm mind, balanced emotions and a deeper sense of purpose.

Day-Long Workshop, Fire Lotus Zen Temple, Brooklyn, NYC: Using Meditaton and Qigong to Discover and Express Your Buddha Nature/Original Spirit– Saturday, July 22, 10am-4pm.  718-875-8229.

In Taoism, one meditates to “forget who you are,” to “return to your mother’s womb” to discover your true Buddha Nature/ Original Spirit that is given to you at conception and reaffirmed at the moment of birth.  This Original Spirit is a divine spark of the greater Tao, containing a spiritual influence from Heaven and a physical genetic influence from your parents–comprising your destiny for this life.  To work with this energy is to become a sage.

We will work with meditation to create peace and clarity in the mind, enabling us to perceive and efficiently work with the more subtle aspects of our Body/Mind.

We will learn the famous 8 Brocades of Silk to attain total health, a calm mind, balanced emotions, and an awakened Spirit.

Then the Taiji Qigong, a very sweet practice that expresses your Spirit.

And conclude with the 5 Elements Practice to balance your Physical/Emotional/Spiritual energies.  Unless your Body/Mind/Spirit is in harmony, you will inevitably experience negativity and illness.

Beginners are welcome!   Links and DVD’s of the practices will be available..

Spring Qigong Workshops at Tibet House, NYC: Using Meditation and Qigong to Transform Your Stress, Fear and Anxiety into Blissful Positive: Energy:  Saturdays  April 22nd, May 13th, June 10th–10am-5pm.  We will use Qigong to create a smooth flow of energy in the body,  Meditation to eliminate stress and tension in the Body/Mind, a “5 Elements Practice” to harmonize your Spiritual/Energetic/Physical bodies, and the “12 Taoist Rejuvenations” to create a blissful harmonious grace.  Then as any negative issues arise, you will be able to naturally transform them into a positive blissful energy.

Everyone welcome!!
