CC-February 16, 2010 - Heart Balance Qi Gong
The Session Overview below is provided as a courtesy to those who prefer to read than listen, yet on each call additional insights are given which round out the subject.
Heart Balance Qigong Basic Exercises
This is a call that you will want to listen to in order to understand the simple exercises involved.
The exercises are simple to perform, some almost without movement except for breathing. Others are slightly more active.
The more developed exercises will be saved for another time when the video can be coupled with the presentation.
What is Qigong?
Qigong means "the movement of life energy". This "energy" (Qi) is the same as the energy that flows though the galaxies and solar systems, and vitalizes all life in existence. It expresses the spirit or soul within all. It is a significant component of the "Unified Field".
Qi is closely associated to the meridians in Acupuncture because they act as channels for the chi, but Qi is much more than meridian flow.
Qi circulates around and through the body similar to the ways that:
Qi is more subtle than these three, and therefore more foundational to overall health.
As our health deteriorates, life energy either diminishes or circulates erratically. Building the life energy through simple chi exercises improves the most basic foundations of good health - the vitalizing Qi that enlivens every organ, gland and cell.
Heart Balance Qigong concentrates the building of Qi in the heart. The principle is, since the heart energy is the governor, regulator and balancing point between all circulating energies of the body - both physical and energetic - by building chi in the heart, the balance of energy, and therefore health, throughout the body will be upgraded and maintained.
Much like physical exercise is required to move lymphatic fluids through the lymphatic system, Qigong-type exercises increase the circulation of Qi around and through the body.
How long do I exercise?
The exercises taught during this conference call will allow anyone, regardless of their level of health, to build Qi to high levels within 10 -15 minutes. Working at it longer is possible but noticeable results can be achieved within the first few minutes.
How are the basic exercises performed?
The exercises can be performed standing, sitting or lying down. They can easily be performed even by those who are hardly able to move a muscle - and with surprising success!
Listen to this conference call and enjoy the vitalizing power of Qi!
