“The glory of God is the human person fully alive.” Saint Irenaeus of Lyons
To practice the internal arts of Tai Chi and Qigong with consistency is to feel more alive in body, mind and spirit. But what does that really mean?
In brief, because the practices of Tai Chi and Qigong focus on relaxing, restructuring, healing and renewing the nervous system, the body begins to harmonize and regulate, injuries and illnesses begin to heal and over time the practitioner experiences the benefits of pain relief, increased strength, flexibility and pure energy for more abundant living. The mind becomes more calm and clear, the effects of stress are dramatically reduced, internal awareness grows and your own unique talents and potentials are unlocked and begin to blossom. At rest in the heart of love and quietude, the spirit is free and joy becomes your dwelling place.
Tai Chi (Grand Ultimate) and Qigong (Vitality Cultivation) are currently enjoyed by more than 2.5 million Americans and have been called the slow, graceful path to health.
You may be asking yourself: Can I really feel more alive in body, mind and spirit and live my life more abundantly? Based upon my own personal experience and the experience of so many others—Yes, absolutely yes!
