Qigong, also known as Chi Gung
Qi (chee) means energy (or life-force); gong means work (seen as skillful practice)
Qigong is a path that often starts with a person interested in improving their physical body. They want to have less pain, be more flexible, have better circulation, better posture, etc. As they learn qigong, their physical body starts to open, and they are better able to hold their alignments.
Energy runs through their torso as well as their arms and legs. Their organs, residing in their torso, is then affected. Many kinds of health improvements may develop. They may notice their stamina and mental focus increasing, their indigestion may be alleviated, and sleep may improve.
Then they might experience some inner work is beginning to occur. They may start to notice that their nervous system is not so reactive. This then affects their mood and general sense of inner peace. They may start to become aware of their place in the universe.
The path of qigong is unlimited.
