What is the relationship between our own inner experience and the immense global issues we are facing, such as climate change? Do they have something in common?
What are the challenges of our times asking each one of us -- separately and together? Join us for a day to explore how the external events of our age, from issues of social justice to climate change, are inviting each one of us to better understand our internal world and what our unique role and contribution is in the world today as we embrace the reality of interconnection in our personal and planetary lives.
This will be an interactive day, with embodied practices, talks, discussions and small group dialogues. We will look at how our individual identity is also part of a collective identity, and how we each hold important clues as to how we can consciously move forward in this next important chapter of civilization.
Qigong connects the mind with the body and awakens us to the fullness and inter-connectiveness within and around us — imperative to balancing our busy and stressful lives lived mostly in our heads. In this workshop, Master Mingtong Gu will guide you on an experiential path uniting consciousness and energy—a union he calls “energy wisdom”.
You’ll experience the powerful ancient practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong, which combines mindful movement, sound, visualization, and meditation to reconnect mind, body, heart, and spirit with an abundant flow of life energy. Through meditative movement, pure consciousness practices, sound healing technologies, and direct transmissions from Master Mingtong you will explore Qigong for emotional alchemy, embodied healing, and spiritual awakening.
Qigong is a very potent energy healing modality you can use yourself that can complement and enhance any other meditation, energy practice, or spiritual tradition you choose. It is unique in holding embodiment as a goal, as opposed to transcendence as a way to reinstate the powerful, natural connection between your physical existence and your intangible essence.
During this workshop with Master Mingtong Gu, you’ll discover:
For Mintong Gu, "Everything is the expression of a single pure energy. All we must do is continuously come back to this state of oneness, and through this practice we also heal ourselves." Join us for this unique and powerful day.
