Please join Kathy for a 10-week experiential class in embodying the flow of energy that frees the expression of the Virtues and nurtures the integration of the Neutral Heart. This Qigong series is designed for people familiar with the Enneagram and who want to work with all nine energies within. Participants in this series will learn 12 Qigong movements: one for each center (belly, heart, and head) and one for each of the 9 types. Through these specific movements and breathwork, we will release stuck and contracted energy in 12 organs. These practices transform the flow of energy into its more natural state and help practitioners recognize higher states of consciousness. Emotional reactivity is alleviated and the cardiovascular, digestive, and respiratory systems reset, contributing significantly to homeostatic and neurovegetative regulation. Through practice, the immune system strengthens and practitioners cultivate profound skills that also awaken awareness of how to move up the Levels of Development. The Enneagram illuminates a connection between the belly and heart centers and the relationship between emotions and instinctual survival strategies. The more stress a person is under, the more their physical, emotional, and mental health suffer. Our resistances activate the passions and fixations, and we begin to miss the mark on how to relate to each other from the present moment. When our body’s tensions are relaxed through these movements, the present moment begins to unfold with more ease, reciprocity, and intuition. At higher states of consciousness, the Neutral Heart is the embodiment of the Virtues as lived experience, of the tenderness and kindness of Human Qi. These Qigong practices, mapped to the 3 centers and the 9 types, are an innovative and efficient path to deeper connections and boundless compassion. Consider Hafiz who wrote “Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.” Join Kathy for this unique series and make of yourself light! To keep the Qi field stable, registrants are expected to participate. (It is not a recorded-only offering.) However, it is understandable that students may miss one or two classes, so they are recorded and will be available for one year. Questions or to request a partial scholarship, email Kathy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please notify me if you need to cancel at least 24 hours before your session. Thanks!
