So today, on this meditation Monday, (almost Tuesday!), I’m going to introduce you to Qigong. What is qigong? Here is a quote from the National Qigong Association:
“Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention.
The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.
The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.”
Qigong is an amazing way to meditate if you find it difficult to sit quietly with your thoughts. It’s an amazing way to energize and relieve stress.
I have attached a short 7 minute Qigong video to help you get started.
