Tai Chí Qi Gong – SHIBASHI

2nd movement: I open my heart

The body part of our existence has largely been neglected in the past, and still is for the most part of modern life. And yet, without the body, we would not be here.

I love to introduce my daily practice of Tai Chi Qi Gong, to show you how the energy of the breath connects us to the body, to the earth and the spirit (Heaven). 

Qi is the Chinese word for ” breath and life energy “. In the Taoist mindset Qi would be the ” power of the air “, by the Greeks, it is ” Pneuma “, which is more than just the breath. The Christian church uses the word “Odem” for the breath of God. You see that breathing is not just an organic action; it is the link to the source of life.

Qi is the force that transforms all processes in the body into vitality. It keeps us healthy and connected.

And gong simply means practice. Gong is the movement, the rhythm, and the discipline. “Gong” is therefore the more strenuous part. And as you know: no pain, no gain. No really, there is no pain. The movements are fluid, light and harmonious. Everybody can practice it; there is no requirement of a certain physical condition. There is no age limit and no restriction due to health issues. If it is too strenuous for you to do the movements standing up, you can do them sitting down as well.

I understand Qi Gong as a meditation practice.

For me the 18 movements, which are also called Shibashi, are the key to my health. I practise every day and feel strong, balanced and vital.

Shibashi is poetry in movement as well. Each movement has a poetic name and is linked to a part in the body. The poetry enables me to imagine the movement and feel the image in the body. Movements are called for example “Wise women offering peaches”, or “Gazing at the moon”’ or “Flying with the geese”.

Before I go too much into the poetry, I would like to say some words about the benefits of daily practice: Medical staff in the East as well as in the West recognises the benefits of a daily routine. A regular practice releases stress and increases energy, vitality and helps to heal degenerative and chronic diseases.

There are millions of practitioners in the East as well as in the West, North and South who successfully treat diseases ranging from hypertension to psychological malfunctioning with Qi Gong.

As I am a qualified Shibashi teacher, I offer group sessions and individual session equally. If you would like to start a Shibashi meditation routine with me, please send me an email: info@gunhildlorenzen.com
