Qi Gong and Mindfulness Workshop with Dr. Scott Greenapple

Qi Gong is a combination of movement, breath techniques, postures, and Mindfulness Meditation. Also known as movement meditation or as Harvard has called it "Movement Medication".

Most if not all of the benefits of Qi Gong and movement meditations are centered around cultivating our own mind/body and spirit allowing the body to self-regulate and help strengthen our own immune response and turn on the "healer within".

Qi Gong: Meditation in Motion with Dr. Greenapple

Walk Slowly by Danna Faulds It only take a reminder to breathe, a moment to be still, and just like that, something in me settles, softens, makes space for imperfections. The harsh voice of judgement drops to a whisper and I remember again that life isn't a relay race; that we will all cross the finish line; that walking up to life is what we were born for. As many times as I forget, catch myself charging forward without even knowing where I'm going, that many times I can make the choice to stop, to breathe, and be and walk slowly into the mystery (2002 by Danna Faulds - Published in her book "Go In and In: Poems from the Heart of Yoga") https://vimeo.com/473664435 Do You Need a Password to...
