Norcross, GA (PRWEB) April 17, 2011
LIU International Shaolin Institute invites health and healing conscious people world-wide to join the Mass Chan Meditation, Tai Gong Exhibitions and Workshops conducted by Grand Master Shi DeRu. One of his Meditation for healing and social harmony will be at Piedmont Park in Atlanta on World Tai Chi-Qi Gong and Healing Meditation Day, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM on Saturday, April 30th, 2011. This is a global health & healing event which will unfold across the planet, beginning in New Zealand, it will spread time zone by time zone across the globe through the U.S. and over 70 countries across 6 continents.
Along with him, his top instructors of various Shaolin Institute campuses in Mobile, AL; New Orleans and Thibodaux, LA, will teach the beginning level Chan (Zen) meditation & Tai Gong which will instigate and echo the Qi of human consciousness of healing, peace and harmony, at Cathedral Square in downtown Mobile, Audubon Zoo on St. Charles across Tulane University in New Orleans, Pelpier park in Thibodaux, LA, as well as China. This health and healing wave will be an opportunity to promote peace and healing worldwide.
Participants will learn calming and peaceful mind, adjusting breathing, empty mind, and experience total tranquility, sense of lightening, floating, releasing and enlightening. “You forget, let go all the past and present and refresh yourself with new life and a new way of living” as expressed by the Master.
According to Susan, the chief coordinator of the institute, following the Master, participants will learn to breathe, stretch in various postures to relax the muscles, tendons and ligaments, and balance and circulate Qi to improve mental and physical harmony as well as communication. Instruction will also include a few basic techniques of Shaolin Yijinjing & Eight Pieces of brocade (practiced for 1,500 years) to balance and channel Qi (energy), so as to calm and cleanse the body and mind to release stress and improve overall healing.
Tai Gong, said the Master, is a combination of Tai Chi and Qi Gong based on ancient Shaolin Chan and medical exercise therapy practices. It focuses on Qi (energy) empowerment and body/mind cleansing, as well as Qi redirecting. Tai Gong redirects, unblocks and balances Qi on the right path in the meridian channels and within the organs for wellness and healing. It helps to improve calmness of body and mind, opens the Qi flow, re-channel the Qi, mobilize Qi and increase energy levels to strengthen the functions of organs, ligaments, and muscles. The circulation of Qi from the circulating motions of the body, limbs, joints and organs, improves the transportation of oxygen, energy and nutrients for healing bodily functions. Tai Gong will help each individual to bring the body and mind communication into reality.
“Tai Chi…” as stated by the Harvard Medical Press, “might well be called medication in motion”. Researchers at Harvard University found growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Combined with traditional treatment, Tai Chi appears to be valuable for several medical conditions such as: anxiety, depression, back pain, arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Parkinson's disease, sleep problems, and stroke. Participating in Tai Chi may also help to boost the immune system and improve respiratory-circulatory function.
