UNDERSTANDING Bad Stress Out "Inner Peace" ZEN QIGONG Health = A Balanced Flow Of Qigong The health of our body is dependent upon a clear, strong and balanced flow of Chi through the Sen Lines. Since qigong practice accomplishes just this, it should come as no surprise that the benefits of qigong (also spelled “Chi Kung”) practice extend to every physical system of our bodies, as well as to the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our Being. Physical Benefits of Qigong Practice: Qigong practice makes the body strong and supple. It improves balance, stamina and flexibility. It has positive effects on the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, and immune and central nervous systems. It tends to create smooth skin, and a pleasant feeling of deep warmth within the body. It increases sexual vitality, and allows our sleep-time to be more deep and restorative. Over time, qigong practice can reduce or eliminate chronic pain. It also has the power to reverse the aging process, and restore youthfulness. Emotional Benefits: The smooth and balanced flow of Qi created by qigong practice shows itself as a joyful, relaxed, optimistic and energized state of mind. While the emotional energies of anger, fear, anxiety or grief still may arise, they will be much less “sticky” – and be held and then dissolved within the larger field of joy, gratitude, acceptance and equanimity. Mental & Spiritual Benefits of Qigong: The abundance of clarified energy and mental stillness generated by qigong practice supports great mental clarity, and nourishes both intuition and creativity. As our intelligence becomes rooted in a connection to the inner body, it widens and deepens in increasingly wonderful ways. As we deepen in our qigong practice, we become aware of more subtle realms of Being, and begin to experience, directly, our interconnectedness with All-That-Is. As acclaimed cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz, vice-chair and professor of surgery at Columbia University and director of the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at New York–Presbyterian Hospital writes in his best selling book ‘Staying Young’: “Qigong allows us to cope with the day to day struggle of being human – it can help us stretch and stay loose and balanced in both mind and body.” On the Oprah Winfrey show in November he simply put it this way, "If you want to be healthy and live to be 100, do Qigong." He also added that Qigong reverses the aging process. Parts of P.K.Z.Q. are modeled off of the Mind-Body Wellness Program taught at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. The mindfulness based stress reduction meditation techniques come from Dr. Jongmae Park of Loyola Marymount University. During P.K.Z.Q., cares and troubles wash away. Replacing them are positive images, increased confidence and peace of mind. Near the end of each class the goal is for participants to attain the full ‘relaxation response’ and it’s that response that helps release the feel good endorphins. Why is this important? Endorphins encourage white blood cells and white blood cells help the body fight infection and disease. According to Dr. Benson, “repeated activation of the relaxation response can reverse sustained problems in the body and mend the internal wear and tear brought on by stress.” (Ref: Center for Women’s Healthcare, Weil Medical College of Cornell University.) "When the mind is trained, quieted, then room is created for our brightness, our True Self to shine through. The nature of True Self IS positive, loving, witnessing, unmoved in the moving. No positive affirmation can deliver the depth of contentment, of joy that already exists, that comes forward from True Self. The more we connect with it, the more it grows through us. In such an environment, the body has comfort, hurry sickness and chasing to 'fix' what we 'thought' we were collapses. The nervous system can finally rest - Stillness. From this place, the body will not easily fall prey to disease." - Hae Kwang Sunim "For optimal health, we need body and spirit, exercise (ming) and meditation, awareness of the inner world and the outer. In other words, health requires balance and moderation. The goal of qigong may be summarized as xing ming shuang xiu, "spirit and body equally refined and cultivated." Cultivate your whole being, as you would cultivate a garden - with attention, care, and even love." Please always come a bit early to secure your spot. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-seated basis. Pre-paying through the studio or on Meetup always holds a spot for you. Questions?

Ego 101 and Instructions on the skillful use of the Zen Scalpel that liberate us from so many judgmental, limiting beliefs.

It also addresses the ‘backward step’ to the boundless fundamental consciousness and freedom beyond the ego’s karmic pull. **Register Today **Please Register on Meetup as early as possible. Come enjoy the wonderful group atmosphere! *** Investment: 90 Minute Classes $15 About the presenter: The founder of ‘Inner Peace Zen Qigong’ Hae Kwang Sunim, has trained in Thailand and Korea and for over a decade, he has been conducting classes and workshops across California and Ontario. He is a fully ordained Zen Monk (Bhikkhu) and Vice Dean at (I.B.S.) which is part of Dong Bang University Korea. He received his ordination as Bodhi-Cari at Bo Kwang Zen Center Anaheim, his Samanera ordination at I.B.M.C. in Los Angeles, California and Bhikkhu ordination in Seoul, South Korea. About Pon Klie The P.K. practices taught in this ongoing class series is not another self-help tool. It's a clearing tool or Samurai Sword that cuts through and gets us beyond unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and mental processes. In unawareness, acidic thoughts can multiply, dissipate our energy and cause contraction on many levels. P.K. systematically trains the mind to be less 'Velcro' and more skillful at not binding to mind objects (especially unsupportive, judgmental thoughts). Conditioning is similar to the downloading of many programs into a mental computer. By middle age, people are saturated with downloads (i.e., mental connections made through past experiences as children, past relationships, work colleagues, parents and their related expectations, guru’s, etc., etc.). When hot topic issues become full in our neuro nets, the mind can even start to condition further on its own. However, with the Zen Scalpel, one comes to see the letting go process at a deeper level. They come to see what is behind conditioning, and that conditioning is empty of self. Through the skillful use of the Zen Scalpel, unsupportive conditioning naturally dissolves. Knowing the proper process is key and if one mentally grasps even slightly, the process becomes corrupted. By applying what you learn in this class, peace starts to take centre stage more and more. Learning how to shift perspective from what we call "Small Mind" to “Big Mind” and to peacefully abide from there is critically important for the nervous system (and healing overall). It's also the doorway to accessing innate wisdom and true compassion. With practice, the heart opens and addictions, ill will and cravings start to fall away. People from many different religious and cultural backgrounds study Zen & Qigong. It serves a great need. Ultimately, world peace can only be achieved if we first establish peace within our own minds. The body is a self-healing organism, so it's really about clearing things out of the way so the body can better heal itself. Over time, with this 2,500 plus year technology, the mind unveils its pure, true nature, perfect and boundless. "There is a bright pearl within me, Buried for a long time under dust. Today, the dust is gone and the light radiates, Shining through all the mountains and rivers." - Zen Master Yueh of Ch'a-ling With visual aids and practical language, Hae Kwang Sunim makes the most abstract teachings clear. These interactive classes "cut to the chase" and emphasize practical tools and the essential Zen teachings to bring peace and harmony back into daily life. Scientific research is providing ample evidence of the value of this ancient path in improving your health and quality of life. If you wish to go deeper and access a greater ability to live and love fully, join us and start making this class a regular drop in. All Are Welcome. *** Past class comments: "Excellent class - Hae Kwang Robert provided a wonderful and simplistic understanding of basic Zen, providing many answers, along with the practical tools of 'how to make it work' in my life...

The methodology is based on the ancient Eastern principles of Hai Palung (Energy Healing), Pon Klie Kwan Sow (Emotional Release), Meditation, Food Based Healing and the importance of compassion, gratitude, oneness, outreach and the need to support the whole person holistically - body, mind and spirit.

Come enjoy the wonderful group atmosphere! *** Investment: 90 Minute Classes $15 About the presenter: The founder of ‘Inner Peace Zen Qigong’ Hae Kwang Sunim, has trained in Thailand and Korea and for over a decade, he has been conducting classes and workshops across California and Ontario. He is a fully ordained Zen Monk (Bhikkhu) and Vice Dean at (I.B.S.) which is part of Dong Bang University Korea. He received his ordination as Bodhi-Cari at Bo Kwang Zen Center Anaheim, his Samanera ordination at I.B.M.C. in Los Angeles, California and Bhikkhu ordination in Seoul, South Korea. About Pon Klie The P.K. practices taught in this ongoing class series is not another self-help tool. It's a clearing tool or Samurai Sword that cuts through and gets us beyond unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and mental processes. In unawareness, acidic thoughts can multiply, dissipate our energy and cause contraction on many levels. P.K. systematically trains the mind to be less 'Velcro' and more skillful at not binding to mind objects (especially unsupportive, judgmental thoughts). Conditioning is similar to the downloading of many programs into a mental computer. By middle age, people are saturated with downloads (i.e., mental connections made through past experiences as children, past relationships, work colleagues, parents and their related expectations, guru’s, etc., etc.). When hot topic issues become full in our neuro nets, the mind can even start to condition further on its own. However, with the Zen Scalpel, one comes to see the letting go process at a deeper level. They come to see what is behind conditioning, and that conditioning is empty of self. Through the skillful use of the Zen Scalpel, unsupportive conditioning naturally dissolves. Knowing the proper process is key and if one mentally grasps even slightly, the process becomes corrupted. By applying what you learn in this class, peace starts to take centre stage more and more. Learning how to shift perspective from what we call "Small Mind" to “Big Mind” and to peacefully abide from there is critically important for the nervous system (and healing overall). It's also the doorway to accessing innate wisdom and true compassion. With practice, the heart opens and addictions, ill will and cravings start to fall away. People from many different religious and cultural backgrounds study Zen & Qigong. It serves a great need. Ultimately, world peace can only be achieved if we first establish peace within our own minds. The body is a self-healing organism, so it's really about clearing things out of the way so the body can better heal itself. Over time, with this 2,500 plus year technology, the mind unveils its pure, true nature, perfect and boundless. "There is a bright pearl within me, Buried for a long time under dust. Today, the dust is gone and the light radiates, Shining through all the mountains and rivers." - Zen Master Yueh of Ch'a-ling With visual aids and practical language, Hae Kwang Sunim makes the most abstract teachings clear. These interactive classes "cut to the chase" and emphasize practical tools and the essential Zen teachings to bring peace and harmony back into daily life. Scientific research is providing ample evidence of the value of this ancient path in improving your health and quality of life. If you wish to go deeper and access a greater ability to live and love fully, join us and start making this class a regular drop in. All Are Welcome. *** Past class comments: "Excellent class - Hae Kwang Robert provided a wonderful and simplistic understanding of basic Zen, providing many answers, along with the practical tools of 'how to make it work' in my life...

Class Benefits Include: Reduced stress level / deepening mind-body connection, improved blood pressure, massaging of all organs of the body, reduced anxiety and depression, relieving chronic pain, improved balance and coordination, improved sleep quality (such as staying asleep longer at night and feeling more alert during the day), strengthen mind awareness and inner peace, vitality, and everyday physical functioning. UNDERSTANDING Bad Stress Out "Inner Peace" ZEN QIGONG Health = A Balanced Flow Of Qigong The health of our body is dependent upon a clear, strong and balanced flow of Chi through the Sen Lines. Since qigong practice accomplishes just this, it should come as no surprise that the benefits of qigong (also spelled “Chi Kung”) practice extend to every physical system of our bodies, as well as to the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our Being. Physical Benefits of Qigong Practice: Qigong practice makes the body strong and supple. It improves balance, stamina and flexibility. It has positive effects on the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, and immune and central nervous systems. It tends to create smooth skin, and a pleasant feeling of deep warmth within the body. It increases sexual vitality, and allows our sleep-time to be more deep and restorative. Over time, qigong practice can reduce or eliminate chronic pain. It also has the power to reverse the aging process, and restore youthfulness. Emotional Benefits: The smooth and balanced flow of Qi created by qigong practice shows itself as a joyful, relaxed, optimistic and energized state of mind. While the emotional energies of anger, fear, anxiety or grief still may arise, they will be much less “sticky” – and be held and then dissolved within the larger field of joy, gratitude, acceptance and equanimity. Mental & Spiritual Benefits of Qigong: The abundance of clarified energy and mental stillness generated by qigong practice supports great mental clarity, and nourishes both intuition and creativity. As our intelligence becomes rooted in a connection to the inner body, it widens and deepens in increasingly wonderful ways. As we deepen in our qigong practice, we become aware of more subtle realms of Being, and begin to experience, directly, our interconnectedness with All-That-Is. As acclaimed cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz, vice-chair and professor of surgery at Columbia University and director of the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at New York–Presbyterian Hospital writes in his best selling book ‘Staying Young’: “Qigong allows us to cope with the day to day struggle of being human – it can help us stretch and stay loose and balanced in both mind and body.” On the Oprah Winfrey show in November he simply put it this way, "If you want to be healthy and live to be 100, do Qigong." He also added that Qigong reverses the aging process. Parts of P.K.Z.Q. are modeled off of the Mind-Body Wellness Program taught at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. The mindfulness based stress reduction meditation techniques come from Dr. Jongmae Park of Loyola Marymount University. During P.K.Z.Q., cares and troubles wash away. Replacing them are positive images, increased confidence and peace of mind. Near the end of each class the goal is for participants to attain the full ‘relaxation response’ and it’s that response that helps release the feel good endorphins. Why is this important? Endorphins encourage white blood cells and white blood cells help the body fight infection and disease. According to Dr. Benson, “repeated activation of the relaxation response can reverse sustained problems in the body and mend the internal wear and tear brought on by stress.” (Ref: Center for Women’s Healthcare, Weil Medical College of Cornell University.) "When the mind is trained, quieted, then room is created for our brightness, our True Self to shine through. The nature of True Self IS positive, loving, witnessing, unmoved in the moving. No positive affirmation can deliver the depth of contentment, of joy that already exists, that comes forward from True Self. The more we connect with it, the more it grows through us. In such an environment, the body has comfort, hurry sickness and chasing to 'fix' what we 'thought' we were collapses. The nervous system can finally rest - Stillness. From this place, the body will not easily fall prey to disease." - Hae Kwang Sunim "For optimal health, we need body and spirit, exercise (ming) and meditation, awareness of the inner world and the outer. In other words, health requires balance and moderation. The goal of qigong may be summarized as xing ming shuang xiu, "spirit and body equally refined and cultivated." Cultivate your whole being, as you would cultivate a garden - with attention, care, and even love." Please always come a bit early to secure your spot. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-seated basis. Pre-paying through the studio or on Meetup always holds a spot for you. Questions?
