Patrick Dougherty • Thursday All Day
LOCATION: DIPLOMAT ROOM
Qigong, an ancient Chinese mindfulness practice derived from Taoist traditions, is a simple but powerful way of balancing one’s energy to reduce stress, promote good health, slow the aging process, and enhance emotional well-being.
The regular practice of Qigong opens up any blocked energy channels in the body and offers greater engagement and more profound connection with all life.
In this workshop, you’ll learn:
- The simple movements, visualizations, and breathing exercises of Qigong and how to develop your own daily practice
- How to use Qigong as an antidote to emotional fatigue, burnout, anxiety, depression, and a range of physical ailments
- How to enhance your capacity for developing alliances with clients by balancing your own energy and becoming more sensitive when others are out of balance
