Summer Qigong
with Dr. Ron Davis
June 10, 2017.  9:00 am - 3:00 pm. $60*
The Westridge Center, 1919 Fairway Dr. Bozeman.

Summer Qigong is about discovering the human Spirit. What really makes us different from other animals? Why is so much of our brain devoted to emotions and to speech? Why do we build temples, offer prayers, and seek the meaning of life? And what is it that comes awake in "spiritual awakening"? These are the abiding questions of human beings and the gist of Summer Qigong.

Summer Qigong is one current in the vast ocean of Daoist Qigong. Primarily focused on exercise, meditation and nutrition as a way to be naturally healthy, the purpose of the practice is summed up in this famous aphorism:

Refine Jing into Qi,
Refine Qi into Shen,
Transform Shen and Return to the Void.

Jing, Qi and Shen are the Three Treasures of human life, Essence, Energy and Spirit. JIng is your genetic code that determines how you grow and when your body will die. Energy is the force behind every movement in your body and mind. Spirit is what makes you a human being. When these three Treasures are fully developed it leads to being in the Void which is a state of complete peace void of delusions and suffering. Each treasure is intimately connected to specific organs, emotions, and seasons. Daoist Qigong practice changes throughout the year so that you can carefully cultivate each treasure when it is most accessible. This is natural health care at it's finest.

heart in hands jpgYour Spirit - the Shen - is expressed by the HeartMind, a unique blend of emotional connections and mental formations. Spirit is the part of you that goes beyond time and space to make unspoken connections, to be creative, to touch the divine aspect of all things in nature. Only human beings have a Shen - the good news is that this defining aspect can be cultivatied with meditations and qigong exercises.

Summer is the Supreme Yang season, that's why it's called the Fire Phase. Our Yang Qi naturally wants to go outward to join with all other energies in a glorious declaration of interdependence. However, this exuberance must be tempered by our Yin Qi which is best cultivated in meditation. The cool abode of the meditating mind is the best place to refine the fires of Yang Qi.
