Restoring Natural Harmony
with Qigong Master Simon Blow
Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September 2013, Cygnet Tasmania
Qigong (Chi-Kung) is an ancient healing system that has evolved over thousands of years to help improve people’s quality of life; it is a part of the holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The dynamic forms and inner meditations help regulate the meridian system, and this releases stress, increases health and longevity and develops spiritual perception and awareness.
‘Qi’ (Chi) is the energy that draws the blood though our body, the clouds across the sky and the water through the ocean. Qi is the energy of life; it is the vital energy that permeates all living things. ‘Gong’ means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. Literally, Qigong is a way of working with the energy of life.
The art of Qigong consists primarily of meditation, relaxation, physical movement, mind-body integration and breathing exercises. There are thousands of different styles and systems either done standing, moving, walking, sitting or lying. Tai Chi is one popular style.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, good health is a result of a free-flowing, well-balanced energy system. Ailments both physical and emotional can occur when Qi flow is blocked or impeded, causing imbalance and dysfunction in the body’s energy system. With regular practise Qigong helps to cleanse the body of toxins, restore energy, reduce stress and anxiety, and help individuals maintain a healthy and active life
Guigen Qigong is a Chinese Medical style of Qigong and is featured in Simon’s new Book/DVD Restoring Natural Harmony. Guigen translates to ‘returning to the source or root’ to the primordial energy from which everything emerges. Learn simple flowing sets of movements which stimulate the different organ meridians of the body, Spleen, Lungs, Kidney, Liver and Heart which correspond to the five elements, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire.
Simon Blow was accepted as a resident student at the Xiyuan Hospital in Beijing in 2004 where he worked in the Qigong department as Dr Xu Hongtao’s person assistant. Dr Xu is the founder of Guigen Qigong and is a specialist Qigong doctor with over twenty five years of experience working with the Qi energy. With regular practise Guigen Qigong will help purge and strengthen the body’s energy system.
