Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — The Chi Center brings the exciting opportunity to learn the powerful teachings of Wisdom Healing Qigong direct from Qigong Master Mingtong Gu to a new part of the San Francisco Bay region when it presents “Awaken Your True Vitality: A workshop with Mingtong Gu on September 25, 2011. This popular event will be held at the spacious Craneway Pavillion with its stunning waterfront views, overlooking the San Francisco Bay in the Marina District of Richmond.
Master Gu, who was recently awarded World Qigong Master of the Year by the World Qigong Congress, adds “In China, Qigong is an essential practice for vitality over a whole lifetime and these wise teachings are only recently reaching the west. I trained all ages at the largest Qigong medicine-less hospital, teaching and deepening the skills that spark vitality, joy and wellness.” Master Gu will bring his extensive master skills to lead these same teachings and trainings for the Craneway Pavillion audience. Qigong is a universal practice that complements and deepens yoga, acupuncture, and other wellness and consciousness programs.
While today’s modern world brings great benefits, it also includes great stress and tension. People are being compromised in their vitality and wellness, and it not only slows their ability and interests, it can lead to crushing insomnia, depression and illness. Founded over 5000 years ago, Qigong training uses gentle movement, meditation, visualization and sounds to open the mind-body connection to revitalize joy and wellness. Master Gu will focus his teachings in this workshop on awakening vitality. Each person who attends can learn the skills to expand vitality anywhere, anytime and at any age so they reclaim their energy for their work, to help their community, to enjoy their life.
The workshop event (11am-4pm) is for Beginners to Advanced and costs $50. Participants will learn the teachings and movements of ancient Qigong, as practiced in China at the world’s largest Qigong medicine-less hospital. Master Gu will also lead everyone in a practice to begin to spark vitality. Each person will learn an easy, take-home practice for continuing their vitality on their own.
