One Thousand Hands Buddha & Eight Treasures Qigong
April 16, 2011 - April 17, 2011$30 – $225
One Thousand Hands Buddha is a superior, spiritually healing Qigong method. This Qigong form was inspired by the symbolic positioning of Buddha’s fingers, referred to as “mudras” by Buddhists. It is a method that produces calmness and keeps the heart from “galloping away”, leading the practitioner into a state of silence and peace, a little at a time. This meditative Qigong form alleviates suffering, fortifies energy, calms the heart and helps the spirit attain wisdom. The method also helps fight stress and strengthens the memory.
Eight Treasures Qigong (Ba Duan Jin) Ba Duan Jin is one the four oldest and most famous Qigong methods in China. This form dates back to the early 12th century where it evolved as a popular folk healing practice. It was originally developed for monks practicing meditation to address the joint problems they developed after long years of sitting meditation practice. Eight routines of this form are designed to build strong bones, increase tendon flexibility, strengthen particular organ-energy systems and heal the seven emotions.
