LEARN SACRED CHI KUNG ENERGY PRACTICES TO PROVIDE HEALING FOR THE MIND, BODY & SOUL…
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 ongoing new series, introducing us to “Chi Kung state”, 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. This series offers a complete system of postures, breathing, meditation and healing techniques complemented by the sacred and powerful practice of prayer. Join us for this new series and experience how this level of Chi Kung practice supports your growth and evolution into the Self.
In the Sacred Lotus Chi Series you can expect to:
Expand your energy, relieve stress and chronic muscle tension;
Heighten awareness and deepen your connection to the universal flow;
Open the heart connection to yourself and others;
Experience the state of emptiness, oneness with the Tao;
Live more in the present moment, and feel the aliveness of our natural state of existence.

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
