Chi Kung is an ancient method of of simple exercises available to modern people who want to improve their health and expand their consciousness.
Once you become accustomed to the calming effects of Chi Kung, your mind and body start to feel its effects just by forming the intention to take some time to practice. But beginners are generally intensely engaged in over-committed schedules to the point where, without some coaching, they arrive at a session with a racing mind and don’t begin to slow down until the class is almost over.
So, when attending ‘Chi Kung for Health at BIOM’ we offer the following suggestions to help you get most out of your Chi Kung experience: A few steps in the direction of ‘mindfulness’ that will benefit any practice you’ve undertaken.
– When you put on your coat or jacket to begin your journey to BIOM, take a moment to notice how you are doing it and what is going on around you.
– When you get in your car, pause momentarily before turning the key to again notice your surroundings and how you feel.
– Pay attention to being in the moment as you travel along the road.
– When you turn onto the road toward BIOM from the highway, turn off any music or radio and again refocus on being in the moment.
– As you turn into the drive to approach BIOM, allow your
awareness to expand into the Nature around you. Drive up the road consciously.
– As you park and take the path toward the door, be aware of your actions and steps.
– Before entering, sound the gong and receive its resonance to help you leave the world and worries outside.
– Come in, quietly remove your shoes, turn them toward the door, (a symbolic act, telling yourself that your mundane concerns, are not what you’ve come to address at your Chi Kung session); take a seat on the mat, and
– Feel Welcome.
