Quiet The Mind • A Qi Gong Moving Meditation with Wesley Salter
Through deep breathing, relaxation & slow flow, we will bask in a ‘timeless presence’ and celebrate a profound state of mindfulness.
Quiet The Mind is a 2hr Qi Gong workshop exploring mindfulness through movement. With the intention of calming our ‘Monkey Mind’ [Buddhist term for the mind that is restless & overwhelmed] we will explore tension-releasing stretches, graceful moving meditations & nature-inspired standing postures, all harmonized with balanced breathing. This unique practice allows us to achieve a clear direction of our attention to the magic of the ‘Here & Now’.
Qi Gong, often referred to as ‘Tao Yin’ or ‘Taoist Yoga’, is a powerful ancient Chinese practice based on the premise that the human body is an energy system. Once guarded as a secret practice, Qi Gong practitioners mirror the movement of nature to awaken the flow of Qi. The intention of this practice is to cultivate BIG Qi [Life Force/Prana], prevent disease, and to promote a long healthy life.
