How do we practice residing in our center in the midst of reaching out? How do we harmonize the infinite beautiful energies around us with our own multiplicity? What can we do to cultivate tranquility and quiescence within, so that we may move through life's dynamic changes with a sense of being on a path of peace?

I would like to teach peace qigong as a method to provide participants an experience of embodied knowing that responds to the inquiries above. Qigong is a holistic practice that aligns mind, breath, and movement to restore vitality and clarity. Peace qigong is a form that will support Arise as a community brought together through shared intention, vision, and compassion. It includes a guided visualization that imagines each person's heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, connected to the heartbeat of all living beings. Participants will both reach out to feel connection energetically in the field, and draw in to harmonize that energy internally. This course will be appropriate for practitioners of all levels, including those who have never done qigong before. Teaching, questions and answers are possible, but practice that remains focused on direct experience without rational analysis may be more appropriate based on the desires of the group.

Workshop Description: Peace is within us, each and every moment. Please join me for an embodied experience that restores vitality, clarity, and peace through movement, visualization, and breath. Qigong is a simple practice of moving energy intentionally throughout your body and beyond, and requires no previous experience. In peace qigong, you will sense your heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, resonating with the heartbeat of all living beings. As you are guided through this form, you will experience harmonization of energies within and around you. This gentle method will help you feel centered and clear, and support our Arise experience by enhancing and uniting our shared intention, vision, and compassion.
