with Diane Doiron

Calendar Jul 11, 2018 at 5 pm, runs for 7 weeks

Sheng Zhen Healing Qigong is referred to as Qigong of Unconditional Love. This form is practiced while sitting down. We will be doing Part 1, which is a 10-movement form called The Gathering of Healing Qi from the Universe. These 10 movements will help to squeeze out the murky and diseased qi (energy), and exchange the qi between the body and the universe. It will relax the internal organs allowing the qi to work more efficiently, and balance the qi to make it more stable and remain in the body. This practice improves the functioning of the cells of the body, especially the white blood cells. This form may be especially benefical for people suffering from chronic diseases. This form was developed by world renown Master Li, former coach of kung fu actor Jet Li and also China’s national martial arts women’s team.
