FREE EVENT ~ SACRED ENERGY OF CHI KUNG with Renate Geier
Wed, 12 October 2016, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM PDT
Learn more about spiritual Chi Kung, an approach to practice which results in the “Chi Kung state”: a focused awareness of existing fully in the present moment. Explore a new approach to integrating our personal connection to the Divine, our the bodies’ energetic systems, and the universal flow of chi all around us. This practice combines the sacred practice of prayer with an ancient system of postures, breathing, and meditation techniques to bring about more health, vitality, and joy.
Spiritual Chi Kung comes to us as a technology used by Taoists and Ch’an Buddhists to reduce stress, increase awareness, and live with a particular consciousness in the present moment. The term Zen, like the Chinese Ch’an from which it derives, simply means “meditation”. Despite its association with specific religious traditions, Chi Kung is not a sectarian practice. It is universal, and open to everyone.
The state of mind known as the “Chi Kung State” – an expanded level of consciousness that has been, understandably, the goal of many traditions – is popularly known by a variety of terms: enlightenment, satori, being one with the Tao, nirvana, or simply the outcome of meditation.
This event is open to anyone wishing to explore a new approach to personal energy systems, the universal flow of chi around us, and our personal connection to the Universal Divine.

A few words of student feedback:
On the night after my first introduction to Lotus Chi Kung, I dreamed of a beautiful tree filled with a bountiful of large blossoms. I felt this dream was foreshadowing the riches Lotus Chi Kung held in store for me, and through the last 5 years this practice has become an integral part of my life; helping me ground me in a way I had not believed possible.’ – KP
‘My Chi Kung practice shifts my tense and blocked areas of my body to a place where is it is soft and flowing, and my struggles in the outside world immediately start to shift and resolve.’ – CM
