Next Gen Qigong
Through the simplicity of sharing the Qi, you reinforce what you already know: that we need to practice to have that restful-alert resilience. Noticing with slow natural awareness through the breath and the meaning behind the movement, you can embody healing moments. In the spirit of defining what is a healthy hospitable environment, nurturing Qi can be a gentle call to action, to move you beyond knowing the message behind the movements, to being part of THE movement: one where you are the lead energy supporting your healing environment.

The Way of the
individual sessions or small groups by arrangement on-line and on-site in Great Falls, Virginia
In connecting with the horses we reconnect with ourselves and nature to bring us into balance, similarly to the healing art of Qigong. A session of qigong with the horses can help assess moment-by-moment awareness as we experience sensory integration to bring us physical emotional physical or spiritual benefits in addition to relational awareness. The horses connect with you as relational sentient beings and to offer their energetic support and insights.
Qigong, sometimes called moving meditation, is a mind-body practice that enhances vitality and calmness through the integration of posture, body movements, breathing, and focused intention. We will do simple qigong movements to aid in relaxation, centering and to increase our sensory awareness as we connect with the wisdom of our bodies and the natural wisdom of the horse.

Way with Words,
Sounds and Images
Part of the Imprint Initiative: an arts and health educational initiative.
Words, sounds, and images all serve to uplift us. During this open studio time, we create space to lead with the heart, and lead with the heart to create space. We wait for the way to open for that moment of pause. Through wu wei, or effortless effort, we tend to the healing spirit and give ourselves time for creative compassionate care.
We will begin with a contemplation, reading and/or prompt and a short moving or still meditation practice, which is all completely optional. This is your time whether it is geared towards a contemplative pause, or a creative, prayerful or meditative silence. Quiet the mind so you can journal, make music, art, pray, meditate, or read to help you uncover a healing moment, a sound, word, image, phrase — what wisdom is calling you this moment?
