Autumn Begins - Time to Harvest the Qi

Where has the time gone? Summer is almost over. I hope you are enjoying this time of year. I had a very busy July with lots of happy family events, and finally have time to get this newsletter to you.

Back by popular demand is the Primoridial Qigong - Start of Autumn Workshop which is this Saturday August 6, the exact day when Autumn begins according to the Daoist calendar. The recurring movement in Primordial Qigong,  "Harvesting the Qi",  supports this energetic time of year. The form includes flowing exercises like in Taiji without the martial arts applications nor complex movement patterns.

The Fall Equinox Meditation & Healing Circle, Wednesday, Sept 20 includes special seasonal empowerment representing height of Autumn (rather than beginning as we observe in Western cultures).
Being International Peace Day, we will practice 5 Element Meditation extending our inner balance for world harmony.
Please invite all who would appreciate uniting with this powerful energy.

The Fall Equinox Intensive - Breath of Life, on Saturday Sept. 24 focuses on breathing practices relating to Lung Qi, energy of the fall, governing our respiratory system, immune system and connection of breath to awareness of Qi. Inspired by Mollie Thomas, senior Qigong student, we will practice ZBE (Zhineng Breathing Exercise) and Six Healing Sounds. Mollie just completed her second 100 day gong (consecutive daily practice) of these methods. 

Lung QI is associated with grief and the color white with mourning in Asian cultures, so it is appropriate we include a memorial practice to Master Liu Zhankui (Jane Jin's teacher) who introduced ZBE & Head Circulation methods, a powerful catalyst in deepening Qigong practice.

October is always busy being Breast Health Awareness month. I am giving a free lecture October 4 at UCSD Center for Integrative Medicine; and Women's Qigong for breast health series at Tri-City Wellness all during September and October.
On the day of the full Moon on October 15, is our Women's Qigong Workshop and free intro to Women's Qigong and Jade Egg practice.
This is an opportunity to experience the entire Nuzi Women's Qigong form in healing of the feminine body and psyche.

Please register early for these events as space is limited.

All levels of experience with & beginners to Qigong are welcome.

Looking forward to harvesting the Qi with you as we continue our journey together for optimal health, empowerment and inner peace.

With gratitude,
