The way of Chi Kung
The way of Chi Kung translated means: the way of energy management. For Chi Kung students, this implies a lifetime of opportunity to observe, discern and follow the flows of energy in and around the body with consciousness. Personally, this energetic flow of life brought me to Bowen this July as I was looking for a quieter, healthier place to live. Not only have I chosen a most pristine location, I’ve been very touched to see how this is reflected in the quality of people I meet.
With 20 years of experience teaching Chi Kung, I inquired to see how my new community would respond to an offer to learn basics skills in this teaching. I was pleasantly encouraged by the Bowen Island Community Recreation to let islanders know that I’m here and that I'm eager to share my skills with energy management.
The way of Chi Kung is to follow the flow of consciousness through standing postures, gentle movement and open breath. For someone who appreciates change, with practice there is great pleasure in observing the energetic shifts and experiencing how these correlate with an increase in vitality and presence. There are three main categories of Chi Kung with thousands of variations. For the beginner, I recommend the gentle and practical entry level with easy postures that build stability, vitality and flexibility. I’ve seen students achieve great success with the basics. It’s all about how we do the work and the quality of presence we bring to the moment.
