UPCOMING WEEKLY COURSES AT THE CHI FLOW STUDIO AUGUST 2021
Return to Vitality begins August 11th - September 15th, 6 Wednesdays from 9:30am-11am.
Vitality! That’s the pursuit of life, isn’t it? Katherine Hepburn
Zhineng Qigong Science teaches us that two factors must be present for vitality and health to return to the body. The first factor: There must be sufficient qi in the body. The qigong practice allows us to gather, harvest and eventually go beyond “sufficient qi” to ABUNDANT QI. The physical practice, both dynamic and static, is necessary in order to learn how to do this. We have not been taught this at school or by the society.
The second factor: Blockages, obstructions and stagnations that block the flow of qi and blood in the body need to be seen, opened and transformed to allow the free flow of energy to return. Whether physical or emotional, the information also must transform.
During these 6-weeks, we will focus on several specific practices to open the blockages,
transform the qi and allow a return to vitality. The support of the qifield in group practice is a valuable part of Zhineng Qigong. If you haven’t yet experienced the power of the Big Qifield, you are in for a treat. Alot of the “work” is done for you just by showing up.
COST $120 or if combined with Liver Qi Abundant Saturday course, $216
Liver Qi Abundant begins August 7th - September 11th, 6 Saturdays from 9:30am-11am.
“Is life worth living? It depends on the liver.” William James
I will be offering a 6-week course focused on awakening the all-too-common
stagnant, sluggish qi of the liver. Eastern wisdom has known, for a long time, the importance of keeping the liver healthy for optimum function of the body/mind. This has more recently
become relevant information in the west. The emotions of frustration, irritability and anger
are clear signs that liver qi is blocked and /or overheated. Headaches, digestive issues as well as skin disorders, insomnia, excess weight and bloating can also be connected with the liver.
It is considered the mother organ, and it is longing for our loving attention.
Zhineng Qigong science states that when there is sufficient qi in the body/organ, and the qi and blood are flowing freely, then health of the body/mind/emotions will return. So how to do?
During these 6-weeks, you will learn several gentle practices to facilitate the energy to flow well in this organ. You will also learn how to gather and harness more of the hunyuan qi (original, primordia life force) and how to direct it to any area of the body that needs support. Much of this practice can be done sitting. Simple dietary suggestions will be offered that can accelerate the practice.
The body is whole and unified, and we will not isolate the liver as separate from the body.
Therefore, we learn how to practice for the entire body’s health first. Then we can focus healing qi and information in a balanced way towards a particular organ or system.
IDEALLY this 6-weeks is attended in conjunction with the Wednesday morning 6-week Return to Vitality Course (beginning August 11th) to go deeper into the practice and learn more qigong principles. It can be seen as a weekly immersion, however If inconvenient, this is definitely a stand-alone course.
COST $120 or if combined with Return to Vitality Wednesday course, $216

ABOUT THE CHI FLOW STUDIO
The Chi Flow Studio had a magical beginning, truly manifesting out of a vision.
When I returned from a month long retreat at the Chi Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico October 2016 with Master MIngtong Gu, receiving my level 1 Certification for teaching Wisdom Healing Qigong, I continuously saw myself in a lovely small studio. Franco, my partner, kept reassuring me that our family room made a perfect studio and we converted it, happily teaching three 8-week courses from home. Still, I kept seeing myself in a more accessible area, with a chalkboard sign out the front offering pop-up qigong. Checking out commercial properties and the lease costs, I knew it wasn't viable as teaching qigong is nearly always a passion and a sense of life's purpose rather than a "new career".
My partner and I have a mutual friend who had a property on a most desirable street in East Fremantle, (as one student said "it's a groovy street"), and it had been empty for some time since his mother passed away from breast cancer. Knowing my journey of having faced the same challenge twice, we began talking about me using the premise until it could be rented out permanently. I got that chalkboard and began but renovations needed to happen and my friend decided we could give it a go. Down went the partition, Franco renovated beautifully and the vision manifested into a lovely clear energy space. As a tribute to his beautiful mother, it brings him and his brother great joy that this space will be used for healing and well-being. We know she is smiling as well.
The vision for the Chi Flow Studio is available for hire for the benefit of our awakening community. Any like-minded groups including yoga, meditation, mindfulness, women's circles, sound healing groups, can contact me for very affordable rates.
