Yi Ren® Qigong: Level 1 Part 1

Authentic Qi Cultivation for Health & Happiness

About Yi Ren® Qigong:

Yi Ren® Qigong (pronounced “Yee Ren Chee-gung”) uniquely integrates ancient Chinese mind/body/spirit energy cultivation techniques with modern science, using gentle meditative exercises to access and develop the body’s bio-energetic ‘Qi’ system for greater health, vitality, and self-awareness. This form helps the practitioner reduce stress, gain clear intellectual and emotional functioning, and improve physical energy and health.

‘Authentic Qi cultivation leads to exploring and realizing the True Self, experiencing True Love, and awakening True Wisdom within in order to live a healthy and happy life.’ ~ Cuan-Cheng Sun, Ph.D., Founder of Yi Ren® Qigong, Director of the Institute of Qigong and Integrative Medicine.

Visiting certified Yi Ren® Qigong instructor Jan Weedman is one of the most experienced instructors at the Institute of Qigong and Integrative Medicine (IQ&IM). San Juan Island resident Stephanie Prima, Yi Ren® Qigong teacher in training, will assist in the seminars and conduct practice sessions.

How to Prepare Quick, Healthy Meals without Recipes

 

Demonstration & Discussion: Saturday, January 8, 11:00 – 1:00 pm PST 

Life is hectic, and some days we simply don’t have time to eat the way we’d like to. Trying to cook a healthy meal is tough after a long day, and looking at long lists of ingredients or trying to decipher instructions is just too much sometimes.

In this class you’ll learn how to quickly pull together ingredients you have on hand to get some tasty, satisfying nourishment before you head out to the next engagement, or you get home late but still need to eat something. 

You’ll learn:

  • What makes a meal ‘healthy’
  • How to maximize your success
  • The pain-free way to quick prep
  • Coaxing out flavor for yummy meals
  • And……’Mystery Box’ – the most fun and creative part of the class

This class is suitable for omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans alike.

Cost: $45 p/p incl food

Location: Friday Harbor, WA (additional details mailed upon registration)

FIND YOUR CALM: Moving Meditation

Location: Island Arts Collective, Cannery Landing, top floor, first door on the right, Friday Harbor.

Description: You’re working in a stressful job, taking care of kids, aging parents, or all of the above. You’re helping out a few non-profits here and there, and fighting your unsettling anxiety and frustration with our country’s current political mess. It seems like you’re getting less and less done, feeling pretty worn out, and barely hanging on by your fingernails. Does that about sum it up?

I know what that feels like because I’ve been there. But I found something that has helped me improve my focus, my energy, my sleep, and my overall well-being. It’s moving meditation, and that’s why I created a class called FIND YOUR CALM.  The class includes discussion as well as exercises, and runs for 6 weeks on Mondays beginning April 17, 5:15 – 6:30.     

Yah, I know, you think you can’t meditate because your brain won’t calm down. That’s the point of ‘moving’; it’s much easier to reach that peaceful state when you’re focusing on the simple, gentle moves that I’ll teach you, and the sensations in your body. In each class session, I’ll give you simple tools and a short sequence of easy exercises that you can use on your own, anytime, anywhere.

In fact, once you cultivate the habit of slowing down with these simple movements and meditations, it feels so luscious, you’ll find yourself actually setting aside time to do it.  And with regular practice, you’ll learn to focus better so you get more done; prioritize to spend your precious time on the things that are most important in your life; energize your life force so you can get through the day without feeling depleted; and improve your general outlook on life. Moving meditation offers all the things that traditional meditation does, but I find it to be much more gratifying – but of course, I’m biased.
