“Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air, and you.” Langston Hughes
Summer is the season of the free spirit, of discovery, play, joy, and love. It is the season of the open heart. School is out, and we are on vacation; we feel freer, show more skin, stay up late at night, and laugh with our friends. The golden solar energy fuels our passions and liberates our minds and spirits.
Qigong is a practice that teaches us how to harness the gifts of nature and the seasons for personal growth and empowerment. Now in our class, we are going deeper to explore how our Qigong practice can support us to connect with and gather the elemental energies of fire to enhance our vitality and happiness.
One of the things I love about Qigong is how it helps us bring awareness to what is and isn't serving us. Excessive busyness, hastiness, stress, and taking on others' painful emotional states can all harm our hearts. We see this being reflected in the western medical understanding that stress and anxiety lead to elevated blood pressure, which over time damages our hearts.
Qigong for summer helps us pay attention to our internal and external environments to make sure we don't take on too much busyness and emotional excess. By learning how to direct our emotional experiences towards love and joy, we can celebrate the season in a fulfilling and meaningful way.
