One of the beautiful aspects of Qigong is that, in addition to treatment being available, there are many (thousands) of forms that can be practiced by the individual that keep the energy body in right balance, good harmony, nice flow with a high quality of chi moving throughout. The forms that I lead are easy to follow and general in their application to an individual's wellness. They provide support for the organ systems, the connective tissue, the nervous system and brain. They also support our emotional body, increase our focus, help support the softening of false beliefs, and support any spiritual practice that we may have, regardless of tradition. Over time, the practice of these forms helps soften our natural transitions between expansion and contraction, bringing extremes into balance and restoring flow to our bodies, minds, and emotions.
Monthly Practice in the Park
I have long held a dream of practicing qigong in different parks throughout Oklahoma City. The time has come, and you are invited to join me at no cost. I will lead simple standing forms with the intention of not only supporting the circle, but to bring chi to the city and our neighborhoods. Because we are standing and outside, please dress for the weather (you want to be able to cover the back of the neck from the winds of Oklahoma). And, feel free to bring a chair to sit in if you are not currently able to stand for an hour. All forms can be modified to sitting and you may also just sit in the field and receive the chi. The parks and time will change but you can expect me to be leading qigong somewhere outside one Sunday morning a month. I will announce the place and time here on the website and in my newsletter (which you can subscribe to at the bottom of the page).
Note: Please leave any fragrance at home (as in, no perfumes please). This will give you an opportunity to experience that which is available in nature and also allows those who have respiratory challenges to practice alongside you with ease.
Those of us who have been practicing together find we are loving the Zoo Lake Park with water on one side and a sort of hill to our backs (if you face the water) so we are going back to this beautiful setting. Come join us, the birds, and the elephants as we cultivate our chi and leave a little behind.
