NewsNews in Chinese Calligraphy


My dear Qi Gong friends:

In  this  May  newsletter, I would like  to  share some tips  to  improve your  health  and remind you to join our Spring Qi Gong/Tai Chi events (see attachments). Also I would like you to help us promote our upcoming events and help more people to attain good health and happiness. In addition, I would like to invite those who have completed the beginner course to attend  our ongoing Saturday drop-in class. Practicing Qi Gong in a class setting makes it easier to remember the correct movements and allows  you to learn more  advanced methods which are even more powerful in improving your health. Practicing  Qi Gong with  others  who  are on the same path makes the healing  energy from the group much stronger.

In  mid-March, I was aware  that  many  people  were sick with  stomach  flu in Toronto  and Ottawa. One of our  practitioners in Toronto  caught  the  stomach  flu from  her mother  who  lives in a nursing  home  which was later placed in quarantine. Her daughter  and her boyfriend became  very sick for over two  weeks. She tried  all her resources to heal it, but  nothing seemed to help. I showed  her how to channel  the fire energy to  strengthen  the  Stomach  and  she  was  able  to recover in 4 days.

According  the five element  theory, the Earth element (with stomach and spleen) is weakened or constrained by the Wood element  (with Liver) which is very strong in Spring. That is the reason many people get stomach flu  in Spring. The Fire element  strengthen the  Earth and thus improves Stomach complaints.

Since Qi Gong  is a self-healing  practice, a body  and mind   training, it places  a great  amount of  impor­ tance  on controlling emotions and having  a peace­ ful   lifestyle.   It can  help   you  manage   your   stress and release unwanted emotions, improve your  con­ fidence,  wisdom,   happiness,  energy,  and   immune system. As result  it  has the  power  to  heal  most  of our  health   complaints  and  provide  benefits   for everybody. It can improve performance for workers, teachers, students, job seekers, sport  practitioners, professionals and health service providers. Qi Gong training provides  you  a calm  mind  with  wisdom, happiness   and  a  positive   mentality  with   plenty  energy  and  confidence to  help  you  to  make good financial  and daily decisions. It is an excellent tool  to  manage  your  unbalanced emotions and help  you  to  maintain good  relationships with  the people  around you.

The Spring  issue of Tone Magazine  has an article (see attachment) about  my treatment of a person who  was in  a coma  for  11 days. It  illustrates  the healing power of Qi Gong.

Finally I would like to remind you that we celebrate World Tai Chi and Qi Gong Day at  the  McNabb Recreation  Centre on Saturday  April  25, from  9:00 to 10:00 am, Join me in learning  Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Kung  Fu techniques to  cultivate our  energy  and vital life force.
