Vital Qi Newsletter October 2014

Instructor's Corner

Daylight is shortening and autumn has arrived. The energy of the lungs dominates this time of year. So take care to protect your lungs from the changing weather. Don't get caught off guard with the cooler days; stay warm. As we shift our attention indoors, it is the perfect time to deepen our Qigong practice. Read our new article, "Qigong in a Modern World", and learn about integrating Qigong into our busy lives.

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 8, the Tao describes the highest goodness like water. The actions of water are a metaphor for the Tao and life. It benefits many things without conflict. If we are like water, all life benefits and there is no need for competition and judgments.

Chapter 8
The highest goodness resembles water
  Water greatly benefits myriad things without contention
  It stays in places that people dislike
  Therefore it is similar to the Tao

  Dwelling with the right location
  Feeling with great depth
  Giving with great kindness
  Speaking with great integrity
  Governing with great administration
  Handling with great capability
  Moving with great timing

  Because it does not contend
  It is therefore beyond reproach
