Qigong Qi means “life energy” and gong means “daily effort”; Qigong focuses life energy for different purposes, including self-healing. Zhineng Qigong consists of an easy-flowing series of movements combined with “intention” to gently open the power of the mind and heart to induce healing, cultivate wisdom, and balance our physical and energetic systems to invite joy into our lives.

Come and learn how to use journaling as a way to take control of your story again.
