This course seeks to explore Qi Gong as one of the four pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qi Gong refers to various ancient Chinese techniques of self-healing. These include movement, meditation practice, and martial arts, that are known to generate good health, balanced emotions, and quality of life. The practice of Qi Gong is especially relevant in today's modern world as a means to relieve stress, release negative emotions, and to help overcome life's difficulties. As a holistic system of bodywork, mindfulness, and meditation, it instills good virtues to the practitioner, allowing one to have a better experience of life overall.
