What is Qigong?
Qigong is a Chinese form of breath, meditation and movement. Taichi, Bagua, martial arts are all forms of Qigong, and Chinese Medicine is born from Qigong.
Qigong comes from nature. It comes from observing, experiencing, learning from the cycles of nature, the inherent health, vitality and Way – or Dao – of the natural world.
As we are nature, Qigong is a system of healing and self cultivation; it aligns us back into our own inner harmony and wellbeing as mirrored in the web of life around us. It is a lifelong journey of discovery and evolution, and is a journey to good health, longevity and wisdom.
Qi means vital life energy. It also means information, and in some cultures is translated as joy. Gong means achievement, result, or cultivation. So Qigong (氣功) means the cultivation of qi, the cultivation of our vital, joyous life.
Qigong is the foundation, the soil from which I grow my wellbeing, happiness and vitality. It is the soil from which I grow my life.
I practice daily outside, as Nature is my greatest teacher and the Qi of life is infinite and abundant.
