A spiritual discipline that cultivates body and mind offered exclusively at Shambhala Centres
Is your everyday life making you stressed? Relieve stress by participating in Qigong. Qigong (pronounced “chee gong”) is an ancient Chinese system of exercise and meditation that will make your mind and spirit calm and serene.
Qigong has the power to improve your health, enhance well-being and expand life. Developed by ancient Chinese practitioners, Taoists and Buddhists, Qigong is a spiritual discipline that brings harmony and peace into your life. Aside from achieving a calm state of mind and reducing stress, Qigong has many other health benefits, such as:
Well-being and improved health
Qigong works with your entire body, affecting all health aspects. While Qigong has been said to cure specific illnesses, the primary reason for practice is not just to add years to your life, but life to your years.
Clear and tranquil mind
Key to reducing stress is getting your mind at peace. A peaceful mind leads to a peaceful universe in which you can heal and transform others just through your presence. When you achieve a peaceful mind you will make better decisions and have the skill to know when to act and when to be still.
Advancement in Qigong is often accompanied by a variety of spiritual experiences. When the ‘Qi’ is abundant, clear and flowing, the senses perceive and are permeated by sweetness.
