PREREQUISITE: ST102: Qigong Meditation Basics 2
This course continues the course material from Qigong Meditation Basics 2.
Our goal is renew and refresh the material from Qigong Meditation Basics 2 and then to explore methods to awaken the healing light. We explore a qigong form for healing and more physical body qigong for grounding. All of these strengthen our physical body, our healing capacity, and open us up to a higher level of conscious awareness.
The theme of this class is: Awaken the Healing Light + Three Fires and Six Directions Form
After reviewing the basic methods of Qigong Meditation Basics 2 for improving our energy levels through breathing techniques and activating the three fires, we look to awaken the healing light. This healing light has the ability to heal the body, rejuvenate the brain, and also raise our consciousness to a higher level. We use this healing light in a variety of ways. We also learn a powerful healing form, the Three Fires and Six Directions Form. We also learn new ways to strengthen the physical body and improve our grounding with an some elementary exercises from Iron Shirt Qigong 1. The Awaken Healing Light material serves as the foundation for later material in Wisdom Qigong and the new grounding exercises serve as the foundation for later material in Iron Shirt Qigong 1, both of which are covered in Qigong Meditation Basics 4 + Wisdom Qigong + Iron Shirt Qigong 1 .
