DECEMBER 3 | HEART MIND AS ONE & HEART SPIRIT AS ONE

Heart Mind as One is very effective at calming the disposition. A calm disposition is the essence of human health. A calm disposition is empty; it has no cares. Qi is in harmony and the body is in balance. This qigong is both moving and non-moving. The physical movements are for cultivating qi. The inner stillness is to bring you back to the heart.

In the practice of Heart Spirit as One, the practitioner is brought to the experience of receiving the Love from which the universe was created and the Love into which everything dissolves. This sitting practice is both meditative and self-healing.

December 3rd - 17th, Wednesdays, 7:15-8:45pm at the AOMA Mind-Body Center, 4701 West Gate Blvd.
