Flowing Zen Qigong Beginners Workshop
Qigong has come to Bobcaygeon! In this workshop we’re going to start at the beginning. You’ll learn enough to be able to jump right in to our next weekly session beginning in May, attend those sessions on a drop-in basis or practice on your own at home.
Qigong can be thought of as the Grandmother of Tai Chi - and it’s easier to learn. Qigong is an ancient Chinese healing art composed of flowing movements that benefit both your mind and your body.
You don't need special equipment and no special clothing is required. All you need is a willingness to learn and clothing that you find comfortable and easy to move in.
Here are five of my favourite reasons for loving Qigong; I think you might like them too!
1 - You can be proactive about your health, taking what you learn and practicing in the comfort of your own home.
2 - Qigong is good for you both physically and mentally, working different areas of the body and helping to relieve stress and the emotional overloads of every day life.
3 - You don't need to carve a lot of time out of your day to create a daily practice - 15 minutes will do it.
4 - Anyone can do qigong - you don't need to have athletic ability.
5 - You are doing something that is excellent for balancing your mind, body and spirit - and It feels really good when you do it!
If you want to see it in action - have a peek at this short video by my teacher Sifu Anthony Korahais. In 97 seconds It does an excellent job of summing up some of the benefits that you may experience.

Reiki Level 2
Reiki Level 2 will review and delve deeper into the chakras, giving treatments, and lessons learned in Level 1. This is a wonderful time to share and ask questions about your experiences in using Level 1. You will learn the Reiki symbols, how and when to use them and have a personal attunement to Level 2.
There will be ample time given for hands-on practice using the symbols. Individual extensive workbooks and a certificate of completion are included.
The workshop will be held in the meditation room in my home and the address will be given after you register. We begin class at 9:30 and finish at roughly 5:00.
Upcoming Workshop Date: June 2, 2019.
