Qigong is medical by its very nature. Qigong works by improving the practitioners’ immunity response, increasing self-healing and self-recovery capabilities, and enhancing self-regeneration potential. Science has demonstrated that humans can prevent 70-80% of the diseases for which they get treated. Qigong practice serves both a preventive and curative function. It is considered to be effective in improving many chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, allergies, asthma, arthritis, depression, anxiety, and addiction. Qigong practice also can put the body into a state of relaxation and regeneration. Learn about and practice the easy but powerful components of qigong, including movement, breathing, meditation, mindfulness, and self-massage. You can learn simple qigong to master stress and help prevent disease, and benefit for your entire lifetime. This workshop is based on Roger Jahnke’s best-selling book, The Healer Within. This retreat is suitable for all levels.
