Chi Kung for Activists
with Deva

This beginning class will cover a basic set of Chi Kung excercises for cultivating good physical and mental health. Chi Kung is an inner practice which bypasses the intellect working directly at the energetic level. It is excellent for transforming stress into vibrant presence.

The basic set of exercises include:

  • Nei Dan – a sitting practice with controlled breathing and visualization
  • Some simple standing and slow movement with connected breathing
  • Shaking Exercise for ridding the body of dis-ease
  • Five Organ Breathing (not covered in this class, but may be in a follow-on class)

Chi Kung, literally translated, means life energy cultivation. I consider it an essential practice in a society that teaches people to use their energy up whenever they have it, which leads to a chronic state of depletion. Chi Kung not only charges the batteries, but it refines the nature of the energy itself.

For the class, wear loose comfortable clothing and expect to be sitting straight backed for 15-20 minutes.
