This class emphasizes deep, intentional breath for cultivating and moving energy in and through the body. The practice is profound and unique. You have a chance to harnesses the energy pulsating through the creation and make it part of you, experiencing this same pulsation throughout your whole body. Large amounts of Qi (Energy) will enter your body and create a vibration. Some will feel this very powerfully – like an engine, and others will simply notice a slight tingling. It all depends on your body constitution. I have only seen and had profoundly positive experiences.
So, let's go back to the basics and learn how to breathe.
A bit of history:
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine our kidneys and liver store energy. We also have an “Energy Bank Account” - the lower Dan Tien (2 inches below the navel). This all makes up our “internal energy”. When we find ourselves in a “fight or flight” situation (which is more often than you may think) the adrenal glands draw emergency Qi from the kidneys. We all have internal Qi, but some have a LOT more than others. A low internal Qi needs to be replenished or the person runs the risk of getting sick. There is also “external energy”, which comes from the air, sun, and food. We can take this environmental Qi and bring it into our bodies. Once external Qi is absorbed, it becomes internal Qi.
In ancient times, the Chinese did not separate the two notions of Energy & Breath (the most ancient Chinese character for the actual word “Qi” is similar to vapors rising up as steam). When we use the Breath Empowerment we take in large amounts of external Qi. Then, using special. To breathe we circulate this external Qi absorbing it into our organs and turning it into internal Qi. It is through the directed power of the mind, that the fresh air is converted into energy, thus enabling you to experience a real energy expansion inside.
“Where Qi goes, Blood follows”. This practice moves a lot of blood and energy with minimal body movement or stress. It opens up blockages in our bodies. Healthy people use about 60% of their circulatory system. When our Qi increases, this percentage also goes up delivering more blood to the brain and vital organs, thus clearing blockages throughout the body and improving our health greatly.
Other health benefits of the Breath Empowerment:
⦁ stimulates assimilation of nutrients, digestion/elimination, healthy appetite;
⦁ accelerates metabolism;
⦁ boosts immunity by reducing cortisol;
⦁ opens arteries for greater brain-based microcirculation;
⦁ enhances mental activity, focus, and concentration – Qi draws the focus and trains the mind;
⦁ helps us calm down, relax and become more peaceful;
⦁ improves results of hands-on healing, like Reiki;
⦁ deepens our connection to our spirit and Source of Life;
⦁ from a philosophical perspective it's believed to help develop human potential, reach higher awareness and awaken one's true nature;
