Winter Qigong Intensive
with Dr. Ron Davis
Saturday, December 14
9 AM – Noon
This intensive class will show you how to keep your body and mind healthy this winter. You will learn qigong exercises for internal and external body fitness, meditations for calming the mind and gaining inner strength, plus foods and herbs for winter nutrition and prevention of colds and flu.This is a nice, comprehensive health care plan just for you.
Meditation is a major focus of Winter Qigong practice: How to get a handle on your internal chatter, how to open the energy circuits of the body, and how to rest in the peace of natural stillness. Meditation will help you enjoy life at a deep level of tranquillity and understanding.
This class will teach the basics of using Mindfulness Meditation in sitting, standing and walking positions to instill clarity and concentration of your mind. Daoist Meditations, like Seven Stars on the Microcosmic Orbit and Lake and Geyser, employ luminous and precise visualizatons that will enhance energy flow through the channels and reservoirs of your body/mind.
Qigong (chee gong) exercises use body movement, regulated breathing, and mental intention to nourish and circulate the Qi – the energy that keeps us alive – through body and mind. Internal Winter Qigong exercises, like The Bear Frolic, Kidney Qigong and Bone Marrow Cleansing will nourish the body at the deepest energetic level with intentional movements and precise concentration.

Some of the aspects of the Kidney Network are: kidneys and bladder, ovaries and testes, bones, spinal cord, brain, water, winter, fear, wisdom, jing essence, grains, nuts and more.

Ron’s statement of purpose is “I have practiced and studied many types of qigong and taiji since 1985. The benefits of better physical health and less pain, a calm and expansive mind, and finding a clear path to greater spiritual awakening have shown that the “qigong lifestyle” is a vibrant way to enjoy the limitless dimensions of life. I enjoy teaching others so that they may attain the benefits of these health-enhancing systems that will help them fully express their potential for good health, peace of mind and true happiness. My unending quest – for everyone – is to live in the blessing of well-being.”
