“Qi” means vital or life energy, and “gong” means work or cultivation.An ancient word for Qigong, Guan, emphasizes that it is a path of observation. The forms of Qigong provide ways to access a powerful, gentle energy that has a profound capacity to heal and to create balance, or harmony. Classical Chinese medicine, acupuncture, taiji, and some forms of martial arts are rooted in Qigong. In these three sessions, Jennifer will share practices from the Emei Zhengong School as taught to her by Master Zhongxian Wu.
