QIGONG WITH MISAKO
Misako is committed to creating an inclusive and multiracial Qigong community where each individual has the freedom to safely and joyously explore their unique relationship with Qigong.
WHAT IS QIGONG?
Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gong") is a gentle exercise and art form that can be practiced by anyone. As a foundational component of Traditional East Asian medicine (TEAM) for prevention of diseases and maintenance of good health, regular practice (even 20 minutes a day), can have lasting effects for physical, as well as emotional and spiritual well being. Combining flowing and stretching movements, breath work, visualization and meditation, Qigong harmonizes the mind and body, while clearing blockages to allow free flow of vital life force (Qi). When our Qi is flowing freely, we will have good health; When our mind and are spirit are peaceful, we can connect to the cosmic flow of the universe.
*Although all styles of Qigong can cultivate well being, Misako teaches medical Qigong through Ling Gui International Healing Qigong School. Medical Qigong is specific to addressing health concerns such as improving immunity and allergies, healing gynecological imbalances, strengthening tendons and bones, assisting with sleep, healing the brain etc. Medical Qigong routines are akin to prescriptions for a more targeted approach to health concerns, but they are still beneficial to anyone who practices them.
BLUE MOON MEDITATION
Friday, Oct 31st
Halloween is the Blue moon, the second of two full moons this month, which makes October more intense than usual. It is time to slow down and tune into our deepest selves. Let’s create a collective intention to get unstuck so we can move forward (through whatever we are facing). I will guide you through Qigong movements and breathing, followed by a short guided moon meditation...and then we will sit together in silence.
