Sundays, 10 – 11a
There as many styles of Qi Gong as there are types of Yoga. What makes Gift of the Tao (GoT) a unique form of Qi Gong is its nonlinear approach to spiritual growth and the practice. Rather than a rigid outline for progression in the system, GoT adapts to your particular needs and works. This ensures every session will be beneficial and suited toward integrating your Body, Mind, and Spirit.
This style makes use of Shamanic State Shifting, with each move in the series aimed at getting one to feel and shift into a particular vibration. These states compliment and balance each other, as well as have application in your healing practice with whatever modality you use. In experience, GoT is dancing with Spirit, going with and relaxing into the Flow!
The complete set of GoT Qigong uses dynamic movement patterns to work out the entire body and energy field. This helps improve energy flow and raise your frequency for improved health and awareness. The end result is a expanded and balanced state of being.
In this one-hour introduction to Qi Gong, Link will begin with first discussing the basics of Qi Gong during warm-ups, as well as the prevalent misconceptions about this powerful practice.
You will learn how to navigate this broad field of spirituality, as well as discuss the importance of daily spiritual practice for embodiment, aiding you in both accessing & developing your physical intuition.
