Bringing in the Healing Waters

The qi gong styles I teach are meditative, soft, and healing in nature. I use metaphors of nature sometimes to ground our practice to our ‘natural’ environment even if we are indoors.

Particularly when we feel tired, practice is a time to bring in the healing waters back into the body.

Nature, ponds, water, often are symbols of healing for us

… The droplet in the water

… The ripples in the bond
