What Should I Practice Today?

If you’ve learned many different meditation, qigong, breathing, and movement practices over the years, you may be faced with the problem of trying to decide what to practice each day.

In this episode of Qigong Radio, I’ll show you a framework for thinking about your different modes of practice and show you the single most important goal of an energy arts practice, regardless of the mode or specific techniques.

Specifically, we’ll look at:

  • Your spectrum of practice.
  • Bill Ryan’s helpful rule: your mind moves your chi and your chi moves your body and vice versa.
  • The pros and cons of a sitting breathing practice.
  • How to use light movement to prime chi flows.
  • The benefits of looking for larger practice patterns.

In this episode, I also recommend that you check out Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford if you want to learn more about seasonal practice.

    This was a very helpful reminder in how to specifically balance the mind/body flows during daily practice, and then how you then put it into larger overall patterns. Thank you!
