from all over the world about meditation.

How do I meditate?
Where can I learn?
Why is it so hard?

Meditation is a deeply profound practice that will bring untold benefits
into your life if you persist in practicing.

Meditation can be challenging, meditation can delve into complexity, meditation can provide a pathway to the realization of immense spiritual truths.
However, at its most basic, it involves a series of simple techniques and procedures. These techniques help calm the habitual stream of thoughts that most of us live with, each and every day of our lives. By cultivating a more balanced, peaceful mind, one cultivates a greater freedom and happiness in one’s life.

Qigong (pronounced Chee Gong) is comprised of two Chinese characters – Qi and Gong.  Qi is often translated as ‘breath’, ‘air’ or ‘energy’, but with respect to Qigong it translates best as ‘life force’.  ‘Gong’ translates as a study, exercise or skill that is cultivated with patience and persistence over time.  Thus, Qigong can be directly translated as ‘life force cultivation’.

Qigong today refers to the set of practices that involve consciously moving Qi through the body to promote health, wellbeing, longevity, martial arts prowess and spiritual cultivation.  Thousands of different systems of Qigong have evolved over the centuries, focusing on these different aspects of internal development.  The ancient Chinese discovered this through their quest for immortality and spiritual enlightenment.  By quieting their minds and focusing in deep meditative practice they became aware of the movement of Qi within their bodies and were able to direct this Qi at will for health and spiritual effect.
