Featured Speaker

Going Into The Emptiness With Qigong

The ancient Taoist perspective is that everything in our world comes from the Emptiness and will eventually go back to the Emptiness. Do you wonder what is it like in the Emptiness? How can we get there with Qigong practice? Or, why would Qigong practitioners want to get into the Emptiness?                
In this talk, Chunyi Lin will explain why the Emptiness is one of the significant destinations for Qigong practitioners to reset and recreate their Qi; empowering you to use Qigong to greatly enhance your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
