Through gentle movement, visualization, sound and breathing practices, as well as conscious intention, the practice of Qigong dynamically restores the life energy and creative power within. As the underlying causes of life’s challenges are released and transformed, we reconnect with the universal source energy. We bring new and vital energy streams into mind, body and heart, and into the flow of life.
There are five secrets that make Wisdom Healing Qigong so effective:
1. Connecting with the ocean of light.
This is the source energy that is beyond your physical body, beyond whatever we are familiar with as life. It is an amazing gift, bringing us awareness and direct experience of a much greater presence of source energy.
2. Using your mind to bring this energy into your physical body.
This includes special methods — including Energy Meditation, Energy Movement, Energy Sound, and Visualization — to bring energy into the cells, into the bodily organs, and into the earthly dimension to activate, cultivate and train the mind-body’s capacity.
3. Learning how to connect with the collective energy.
As a group, we connect with the chi field — a vast field of infinite energy that connects all life. We tap into the capacity of the self and also the capacity of the collective. By tapping into the transmission of the chi field organized by the teachers before us, we access the cumulative energy of all practitioners and teachers, locally and non-locally.
4. Practicing consistently, joyfully and wisely.
To grow, we need to repeat a practice many times and receive new teachings that progressively deepen our understanding. The process of changing our old habits and establishing new ones requires repetition because it takes time and familiarity for our minds to accept the new patterns and learn to enjoy the practice from deeper understanding.
5. Connecting with your teacher’s blessings and teachings.
The teacher is not only sharing the teaching itself, but also guiding and supporting your practice. By connecting with your teacher you are able to receive the blessings and teachings in a deeper way.
