QUIETENING THE MIND AND CALMING THE HEART MEDITATION
The Union of Three Hearts meditation is a seated, non-moving qigong which is a calming and nourishing experience that brings one a sense of peace and connection. Nine Turns is a practice of guiding the qi through your body while lying down. Circulating your qi in this manner can calm agitations within the body and mind. In the morning the emphasis will be on the Union of Three Hearts, and in the afternoon the focus will be on Nine Turns. Francie Shimaya has studied yoga, tai chi and qigong from the 1980’s. She has studied Sheng Zhen Gong with Master Li Junfeng since 2003 and is a certified Sheng Zhen Gong teacher. Since the practice is truly the key to opening the heart, the cultivation of a personal daily practice has been her main focus. In her classes Francie encourages and guides others to develop their daily practice. Please feel free to bring your own meditation pillow and mat.
