P 30 Western countries adopt Qigong as a sub discipline of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Qigong is a sub discipline of Traditional Chinese  Medicine and requires competent usage by the Qigong practitioner. The “Three Regulations” are focal point of learning: the regulation of body, breathing, and mind. While the first two regulations are easily accessible to our understanding, there is a need to explain the regulation of the mind. Regulation of the mind means all mental, emotional, and also imaginative and spiritual impulses.

Requirements and needs should shape postures and ways of movement. Dissipation of strength and energy through false postures should be reduced and breathing adjusted to natural needs. Regulation thus means establishing a process of learning encompassing all vital functions and everyday routines which is able to generate appropriateness and balance in every situation of life. 
Hence learning and practicing Qigong exceeds health  protection but can develop effects addressing a person’s life scripts and enhancing individual potentials. Making this accessible to oneself requires a longer training  process.

This workshop will use simple exercises to generate subjective body spheres which can create impressions described above.
