When body is relaxed and peaceful, energy will flow. When mind is still, it will embrace qi and strengthen the body. In the Chinese arts of health and longevity, qigong simultaneously cultivates a peaceful body and a peaceful mind. Physical health and mental well-being are closely aligned.

Begin your journey of health and well-being in Qigong 1 by learning six classic qigong techniques that relax the body and two postures of standing qigong that gather internal energy. Continue in Qigong 2 by learning how to guide energy through the body using Nine Self-Massage. Complete the program by learning Twelve Devas Tendon Changing - the most effective form of qigong used in repairing physical injuries and enhancing muscular-skeletal strength.

There are no requirements. If you wish to get started on improving your physical health and mental well-being, this program is for you.

Financial constraints should not be an obstacle to taking part. We have a generosity program. https://philadelphia.shambhala.org/programs/

Those repeating the program may do so at the supported rate.
