Awakening Higher Consciousness through Qigong practice

Learn Qigong practices to awaken higher consciousness within yourself. Learn to harness universal energy “chi”, learn to both cultivate it and anchor it into the here and now.

Three key points of this session: 

  1. Raising Consciousness is a daily practice that begins with you!
  2. Qigong practice can elevate consciousness and lead to spiritual awakening!
  3. Being Grounded can help you anchor higher consciousness here and now. 

My biggest dream for people leaving the festival and taking out into the world is that people leave with open hearts and grounded bodies with a willingness to practice BEING PEACE in the world!

When David was fifteen years old he was diagnosed with a severe spinal disease and told that he would be crippled by the time he was thirty years old. Unwilling to accept this fate, David began intensively studying Oriental Medicine, Medical Qigong, Martial Arts, and Meditation.

David learned how to cultivate and direct the energetic life force called Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through Qigong practice, David healed his spinal disease completely! David also found that his mood, his attitude, his outlook on life, and his intuition had all increased exponentially. He was drawn to teaching and sharing these healing practices and spiritual counsel with others.
