Chi Kung

The word Chi Kung literally means Energy Work. It is a system of gentle movements, postures, breathing techniques with focused intent.

Chi Kung is designed to regain health, maintain health and increase vitality.

Diaphragmatic breathing is an important aspect of Chi Kung practice.
Breathing this way allows more oxygen into the blood, improving circulation and restoring normal ph balance which can only be maintained when sufficient oxygen is present in the blood.  This combined with gentle movements massages the internal organs, stimulating digestive juices leading to better digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Acidity and insufficient oxygen are the two primary conditions of imbalance causing cells to mutate.  We can use these techniques as "preventative medicine" in our daily lives to boost our immune system and oxygenate the blood and restore balance to the gut.
Some of the benefits are

  • improve physical health & wellbeing

  • improve emotional and mental health

  • reduce stress and anxiety

  • Strengthen the immune system

  • improve co-ordination and balance

  • increase oxygen levels to the blood, muscles and brain

  • improve bone density

  • When life force (CHI), the body's natural energy, flows harmoniously throughout our body we enjoy good health and peace of mind and a happier life.

 

Meditation

Consider how much of the time our mind is not at peace, is worried and plagued with uncertainty.  Through meditation our mind becomes quiet and tranquil. Through meditation our mind and body let go of worry, anxiety or any other mental activity.  Once we become tranquil we can observe the mind.  We should simply observe the thoughts arising but we need not become attached to them, focus on them or follow them.  Just release them like clouds on a passing breeze

and relax. 

Consistent practice will eventually lead to dissolving our hyperactive mind, leading us to a deeper level of stillness, peace and tranquility.

Tips for Meditation.

First prepare the mind, say to yourself 'I'm going to set a good intention toward my mediation to be successful.  'I relax and cast aside all mental burdens.'

When meditating if your mind wanders bring it back to the breath.  Focusing on the breath is best.  A relaxed healthy mind will create a relaxed healthy body.
