Healing Qigong in Two Parts:
Gathering Healing Qi from the Universe, and
Processing Qi in the Human Stove
All qigong is healing, that's the first thing to know. But this particular set of movements, done while seated in a chair, make it even easier to focus on opening the chest, opening the sides of the body, and opening the heart.
Beautiful arm and hand movements add to the bliss of this qigong form, and stimulate the flow of qi throughout the body. The gentle movements elevate the spirit, while deep, slow breathing triggers a relaxation response in the body and helps reduce stress. Read more and see videos about this form here.
This workshop is open to all levels - beginners welcome. If you're brand new, it's a great place to start. If you've done this qigong before, it's a great way to go deeper. Peter Van Buren will be co-teaching with Pamela.

Sheng Zhen means “Unconditional Love.” Pamela Tanton has been practicing the Sheng Zhen system of qigong since 2002 and teaching it since 2004. Certified to teach by Master Li Junfeng, the founder of Sheng Zhen Qigong, she has studied with him for 15 years, completing many 10-day teacher training sessions with him all over the world—Germany, Norway, Croatia, Hawaii, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, California, Texas, and Baltimore.
For Pamela, qigong is a beautiful practice that brings a sense of well-being, deep relaxation, and a feeling of connection to Oneness. However, she believes it’s important not to be too serious about it either!
The phrase, “Enjoy your practice, enjoy your life” is a cornerstone of the Sheng Zhen Qigong philosophy. Pamela’s classes place an emphasis on having fun and doing the movements in a way that feels good to your body.
