A miracle has occurred. For the past few months, I have been practicing chi/qi gong (translates as “energy work”) a few times a week and it has absolutely been keeping me sane. I’ve been “trying” to create a regular movement practice for what seems like forever.
I find that the combination of breath work, movement, and energy work is just what I need to feel calm, focus, and be creative. It may be the first form of exercise I’ve ever done that I crave after just going 2 days without it.
You can find tons of qi gong videos on YouTube to try out. (Here are a few.) And I wanted to share that my main teacher, Steven Washington, is offering a course this month that I’m taking. I would love to have you join me. Here’s more about “5 Days to Peace” and his work.
Let me know if you try it and/or if you have/find any great qi gong videos/teachers to share.
