|Excerpt: When Master Gu told me of the profound positive changes he has seen in his students over the years, I found it difficult to grasp how Qigong promotes healing. I began a full-day workshop in San Rafael, California, home of Master Gu’s Chi Center. When I started the simple, yet challenging pattern of movements and breaths, my body was flooded by a sense of both calm and exhaustion. My senses were elevated and I felt a heightened stiffness in my muscles but also a deeper awareness of them. Qigong activated a different state of being, a transition from a “fight or flight” state of mind to a calmer place. Perhaps it is in this other place where healing is possible. A place where the body can activate its own intuitive power to mend and correct imbalances.
