Exciting news related to Qi Gong and Tai Chi had been published from many of our presenters, here are two from one of our Symposium speakers and presenters Dr. Roger Janhke’s newsletter:
“Recently, the Mayo Clinic and the University of AZ received a $3 million NIH grant to study Tai Chi Easy — specifically – for cancer, because it is such a well-designed approach to Tai Chi and Qigong for the Mind-Body effect -- healing, stress management and personal empowerment.”

Here’s recent evidence on how Tai Chi slows aging!
 
A study published by Cell Transplantation reported people who perform Tai Chi had a rise in their cluster of differential 34 expressing cells (CD34+), a stem cell important to a number of the body’s function and structures.  

Qi Gong (Chi Kung) is the Art and Science of Living. It has scientific base. 
It is a powerful system of healing and life energy (Qi) cultivation from the Ancient Chinese Tradition. Qi is the vital life force that flows through all things in the universe. Gong means work, or sub-conscious ability that is cultivated through steady practice. Gi Gong is one of the most approachable practices of mindfulness available to everyone, at every moment. Qi Gong forms use breathing techniques, gentle movement and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the Qi. By integrating physical postures, breathing techniques and contemplative thoughts, Qi Gong practice leads to better health and vitality and a tranquil state of mind. 
Our modern world poses many challenges to our cultivation and maintenance of Qi. Constantly living in a stressful state, the sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight response) becomes the norm with shallow, rapid breathing and quick heartbeats.  Depletion of Qi can impact digestion and elimination, leading to insomnia, and impairing other vital daily functions, thus affecting our wellbeing. When we engage in daily mindfulness practices like Qi Gong, Meditation, or Tai Chi, it activates the parasympathetic nervous system, enabling a relaxed state in which the body can heal itself and establish new neural pathways conducive to health. As vitality improves and energy flows freely and in rhythm with the universe, gradually symptoms alleviate and disappear. There are many forms of Qi Gong, each emphasizing a unique form of rejuvenation and cultivation of this vital life force.
Many Doctors have created effective programs for treating, healing and renewing their patients using mindfulness (eg. John Kabat-Zinn’s MBSR program, Dan Siegel at UCLA, Ron Siegel from Harvard, Jeffrey Schwartz M.D., Norman Doidge M.D., Marty Seligman from UPenn, etc.).  The symposium will introduce the alternative approach of Qi Gong and Tai Chi. Please join us for this landmark event with the masters.
I look forward to welcoming you here.
