SunDo & QiGong: What's the Difference?
Thursday, August 22 - 6:30-8 PM
Nei Gong Moves from the Inside Out;
Qi Gong Moves from the Outside In.
The emphasis in SunDo practice, which is a type of Nei Gong, is on developing the core energy at the center of the body, and then, opening this core energy outward to energize the peripheral energy lines (meridians). At high levels of Nei Gong practice, the Qi of the body, mind, and spirit integrate to become one. The whole person then functions in the manner of a single huge cell, with all its Qi pulsing in unison.
Qi Gong, on the other hand, concentrates on working the more superficial energy lines first, and then, with energy moving through these lines, ultimately affecting the core energy. In this sense, Qi Gong is similar to acupuncture, which also manipulates the peripheral energy through the meridians to bring about changes at a deeper level.
Join us for a discussion about these two types of energy healing practices. Try both techniques and judge for yourself the benefits each one has to offer.
This talk & discussion are part of the SunDo Open House series where instructors share their knowledge in an informal session of inquiry and insight. The talk includes sitting and walking meditation. SunDo Taoist Healing Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping create a more compassionate and healing society.
