In this unique workshop you will learn how to apply Qigong principles, which train the mind in self-healing, with the specific intent of releasing excess & unhealthy fat; mental, emotional and physical dis-ease; or any conditions that impede optimal health and happiness.

0-2In addition to learning Qigong practices to release excess weight and dis-‘ease’ with Master Liu, you will also be taught about the importance of connecting to the earth to eliminate inflammation in the body, as well as Energy Balancing Exercises pioneered by well-known author/healer/teacher Donna Eden. Maryna Allan, an Eden Energy Medicine Licensed Practitioner, will teach these simple exercises to improve the immune system, enhance metabolism and reduce the stress response– all which support health and weight management.

Students will also learn about proper nutrition and be able to take part in the preparation of our organic, whole, natural foods menu.  A focus on the benefits of juicing, vegan & raw cuisine, as well as gluten and wheat free options will be explored with Trine Bietz – food guru and yoga instructor trained in holistic healing at the Optimal Health Institute in San Diego.

Los Angeles Qigong Workshops at Be Energy Center:

Cultivating our Sunshine Mind:  Sunday, September 8th, 3:00-6:00pm ~ $50.00

This workshop will introduce participants to Zhineng Qigong.  We will focus on two primary practices: “La Qi” and “Eight Phrases”.  La Qi  a simple method where one opens and closes the hands to cultivate Qi for a variety of reasons.  Eight Phrases is a very powerful healing mantra that Master Pang feels is perhaps the most effective qigong method created. Both are easy to learn and done primarily in a seated position. Recordings of these practices will be available for practice.

An Introduction to Losing Weight through Qigong Meditation: Monday, September 9th, 11:00-12:30pm ~ $20.00

  We will focus on how one can use “La Qi” in order to visualize fat cells releasing from the body.  La Qi  is a simple method where one opens and closes the hands. While the movement of the hands is integral, more important is the focus of the mind to create an improvement in our health.  La Qi can be used to dissolve not only fat cells but also any cells or conditions that are unhealthy.  Ideally, to be successful at weight loss or releasing illness, one must practice consistently and intensely.  However, you will have a simple technique from this class to begin a practice with.
