In the qigong world, the morning hours are considered to be the “fresh breath of the day.” The air is clear and the world is awakening to all possibilities. The qigong movements in this practice will gently loosen your body, the meditations will center your thoughts as preparation for the day ahead, and the internal energy cultivation will enhance your mental and physical activities. For these reasons and more, practicing qigong in the morning may be the very best way to start your day. No qigong or meditation experience is necessary. The movements and sitting postures are always done within your comfort zone. This sequence of Buddhist Qigong practice is arranged as a journey from the outer world of muscle and bone to the inner landscape of equanimity and peace. This workshop will include selected standing and seated Buddhist-inspired Qigong exercises from the Eight Brocades, Bone Marrow Cleansing and Tantrayana practices. Participants will learn a three phase practice that includes External (waigong), Internal (neigong), and Esoteric (tantrayana) qigong methods for body/mind/spirit unity. Ron Davis has practiced and taught qigong since 1986. “Buddhist Qigong” is a comprehensive offering that establishes a somatic and energetic foundation for contemplative practice.
