60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday: Qigong to Calm the Mind and Prevent Dis-ease.
by Diane Wyzga | April 27, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello, Paris, France!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Monasteries established by my teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Buddhist monk are not just places for mindful walking and dharma talks. Blue Cliff in New York – like its sister monastery Deer Park in Escondido, California – offer self-help practices like Qigong.
Given the influence of COVID many teachings have gone online with YouTube sessions. One I enjoy is called Blood Cleanse Qigong offered by Brother Insight. If you click here (in the Episode Notes) you can take part in the 20 minute 9 movement set designed to help generate good circulation, calm your body and mind, and perhaps prevent dis-ease.
May the merit of this practice benefit you and bring you peace.
NOTE: You can apply this 20 Minute Daily Routine in the Morning or in the Afternoon.
Practice this Set of Qigong barefooted and repeat each movement 21 times.
There are 9 movements in this Set of Qigong:
1. Activate Hands and Legs
2. Open Arms
3. Hands Folded, Body Curving
4. Hands Upward and Backward
5. Slap two knees
6. Two Hands Clap the Nape
7. Tap on the Top of the Head
8. Hands wash Two Ears
9. Flap the Soles of the Feet
