The world of Qigong is amazing and so complex. I have so much to learn! I am excited and am exploring the Qigong Network on LinkedIn this week. So many knowledgeable people from so many different, but related, paths.
I read one discussion on “Hitting the Drum,” which is similar to what Brendan Thorson, my teacher, taught us. It’s a tapping and rubbing at the back of the neck. It’s also stimulating the GB and good for many reasons.
Of course, daily practice of exercises like the Small Universe (one of my favorites) are most important for overall, whole health. But, the tapping the back of my neck feels divine.
Taking time to read and learn about the history of Qigong, the variety of Qigong forms and practices is something I am enjoying. I want to share some of my favorite links with you. There are many, many resources in our communities and online for learning about Qigong. I will add more as I find them and please let me know if you have some to share!
“We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.
We shape clay into a pot
But it is the emptiness inside
That holds whatever we want.
We hammer wood for a house
But it is the inner space
That makes it livable.”
—Tao Te Ching
