Qigong...living it, breathing it, connecting within & in relationship with all life spontaneously with awareness, giving while also receiving, sharing in Chi while guarding the pureness of its expression. Whether one is new or seasoned in his/her practice of chi cultivation, we appreciate that Qigong is much more than our daily practice of relaxation, breathing & meditative exercise to eliminate stagnation, strengthen health & support graceful longevity. In its core is our joyful & persevering attention to sustaining Life in natural balance & harmony in our thoughts, behaviors, activities & all of the aspects of care---exercise, nutrition, work, play & beyond--of ourselves, loved ones & communities. This is the Qigong Lifestyle, embracing Life’s richness in each moment through centered mind-heart consciousness.
