Qi Gong (pronounced Chi Kung) is an ancient
practice of cultivating vital life-force energy in
the body; consisting of simple physical
movements, meditation, creative visualisations,
breathing exercises, sound intonation, and selfmassage to revitalise the body and heal your
spirit. Qi (Chi), can be used to enhance any
function, resolve any challenge, and to elevate
consciousness. Practising Qi Gong becomes
your own intention to become a part of the
emerging force for real and permanent vitality
and well being for yourself, your community and
beyond. Qi Gong has now been recognized as
a ‘standard medical technique’ in China, and
included in the medical syllabus of most major
universities in China.
Introductory course for beginners. Basic
techniques will be taught each week, in the
following order:
1. Drawing and charcoal
2. Drawing on coloured paper with a limited
