Vital Qi Newsletter July 2014

Instructor's Corner

Summer-time can be especially stressful for many because there is so much to do like mowing the lawn, watching the kids, doing basic chores, family outings, family reunions and many other activities that are held during summer. It is important to maintain balance in your life. Stress can be managed with daily Qigong relaxation practice. Read our new article, "Stress Depletes Jing and Qi", and learn about what stress does to our bodies.

Qigong provides many tools for reducing stress and increasing energy to improve your health. I have benefited from many forms of Qigong. You can experience similar benefits too. The purpose of the Vital Qi Newsletter is to bring awareness to Qigong and to inform you of Qigong classes and products available at Inner Vitality Qigong. We also intend on covering other natural health related topics. We look forward to working with you and growing together as we cultivate inner vitality through the art of Qigong. Please feel free to share this newsletter with family and friends.

Lessons from the Tao Te Ching

In Chapter 7, the Tao describes Heaven and Earth as everlasting because they do not exist for themselves. It is because of their acts of selflessness (no ego) that allows them to exist forever. From their examples, the sages learn that by yielding, being selfless and letting go of their goals, they will achieve their goals.

You can read more about the Tao Te Ching here.

Chapter 7
Heaven and Earth are everlasting
  The reason Heaven and Earth can last forever
  Is that they do not exist for themselves
  Thus they can last forever

  Therefore the sages:
  Place themselves last but end up in front
  Are outside of themselves and yet survive
  Is it not due to their selflessness?
  That is how they can achieve their own goals

Lao Tzu

Qigong Tip

It is important to be in the present moment when practicing Qigong. Let go of the past and future. Just be still and feel the energy flowing in your body. The present moment is the only moment we truly have. Living in the present moment is the key to living a fearless and stressless life.

There are so many ways to be of service, like donating money, time, clothing, etc. One way to be of service is by opening your heart and your wallet and donating to the "American Red Cross".
