The Fire of the Heart
The Qi of the Heart is classified in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as the Emperor of the Emotions and is ascribed the metaphor of The Fire Element in the WuXin or 5 phase theory - the basis of TCM.
Balancing of Heart Energy is so very important as
"the Heart Spirit ensures that whatever consciousness, intention, volition, thought, reflection, and self-awareness exist within the large composite Spirit intersects and "clicks" with the world of time and space"
Dr T. Kaptchuk OMD
Whilst open heartedness is an attribute that we all respond to - having strong & free flowing Heart energy can be difficult if one is undergoing excessive energies
of fear, worry and anger.
In many cultures & religions the open Heart energy is expressed in paintings & sculptures - think of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Open Heart Energy of GuanYin and in expressions such as Buddha compassion, big heartedness & so many others.
Stanford School of Medicine's Center for Compassion has conducted much research that shows the beneficial effect of Compassion on our mind & body.
Heart Qi flowing in a balanced way has a direct effect on all aspects of one's being as evidenced from both traditional Heart QiGong training and in more modern scientific evaluation.
This workshop will consist of Traditional QiGong practices to open, unblock and balance the Heart Qi and can be utilised for the following:
- Desire to feel more grounded in & connected to & through the physical body
- Emotional disharmony affecting thoughts, moods & actions
- Agitated or restless mind
- Physical injuries, aches & pains
- Post surgery or medical intervention rehabilitation
- Pre surgery or medical intervention strengthening
- Increased Qi/Energy flow through areas that feel blocked, stagnated or weaker than others
- For the sheer joy of experiencing more Qi/Energy flow through your Qi/Energy matrix and the associated awareness & experiences
Qi Gong/Energy Skill is the ancient system of Vital Energy Cultivation developed by Chinese QiGong teachers over many thousands of years.
It is the fundamental aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine which works on harmonising the Qi/Energy flow of the Organs (ZangFu) & their associated Meridians (JingLuo) through Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, QiGong & TuiNa.
Combinations of meditative focus, breathing methods, movement & stillness techniques are all aspects of QiGong, by interacting with & manipulating the Qi within our bodies as well as interaction with the multitude of Qi fields around us, one can achieve an abundance of Qi flow resulting in relaxation, health, rejuvenation & vitality.
This workshop is open to all & suitable for all levels.
We look forward to you joining us!
