Description:
A healthy body and clarity during meditation increase as energy flows more freely through the spine. On this day, we’ll learn five simple qigong movements that awaken energetic wholeness in the spine and the entire body. We will experience how awakening the spine through qigong is a valuable support and complement to mindfulness meditation. These qigong practices release spinal stagnation and open a profound circulation of energy. This promotes health, calm, and well-being in body and mind. Qigong and meditation bring bright wakefulness and concentrated, embodied presence that helps us discover who we are beyond our stories.

Used in concert, these practices bring a bright wakefulness and concentrated, embodied presence that help us discover who we are beyond our stories. Our spines, and bodies, accumulate energetic imprints and physical tensions that can cause pain and block the free flow of life energy. The radiant aliveness found through qigong combined with the wise focus of meditation reconnects us with the innate love, joy and wisdom of our true nature. No previous experience necessary.
