“When I first began taking classes in TaiChi and Qigong, my initial intention and attraction was to increase my ability to feel and sense and move energy. I was also interested in learning what appeared to be a healing practice or modality. After I had taken several classes, I was excited to see that both of these were happening for me at an even greater depth than I had anticipated. I had begun to gradually sense energetic changes and movement each day. I also found myself using techniques outside of class quite frequently.
What I experienced in class throughout the different practices was a growth of awareness and sensitivity to energetic activity in my body and around it. Some of the many ways I could describe feeling the energy is like warmth, pulsing, vibration, increase or decrease of pressure, expanding and contracting, magnetic, directed flow, tingling, and peaceful and calm. Each time we met and practiced, I noticed the ability to tap into the energy at a quicker rate. I cultivated a very strong and focused concentration to maximize the effect of any given practice, including cleansing, purifying, healing, or grounding. I also learned to use my intuition to communicate with what I was sensing in my energy body. An example of this would be either choosing the right practice for what I felt or focusing on a particular area of the body that felt stuck or stagnant. By the end of the 5th class I felt 100 times more clear and aware of my body and ability to heal myself.
Some of the many other benefits I noticed from this practice seemed to integrate into my other practices. I had increased awareness of my body during yoga practice. I have experienced greater levels of peace, wellbeing, health, and vitality. Increased ability to heal physical injuries and practice regular energetic detoxes. I have noticed quicker and deeper access to meditative states and an overall clearer more peaceful mindset. I built upon my knowledge of energy movement through breath and have a much stronger relationship with it now. With all of these benefits in just 5 weeks, I am looking forward to continuing the practice and opening up to even greater opportunity and capacity to use this incredible healing life force.”
