Finding the right form of meditation can be quite challenging at times; some people are able to get in to the right set of mind by just listening to meditation music and to the sounds of nature, but for most it is crucial to investigate and try different forms.
One of the most sought after forms of meditation in the world is QIGONG.
Qigong is part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originated in China more than 4,000 years ago; the word QI means “breath, air” but also “life energy”,“life force” and the word GONG means work.
There are very many forms of Qigong practiced in the world and developed though thousands of years: sitting, walking, lying down forms and each one of them handed down from one generation to the next. In Qigong the practitioners learns how to guide the Qi, their life force in their body so to make it circulate and flow.
QI GONG FOR BEGINNERS
Substantially, in practicing Qigong you will discover a wonderful type of meditation through gentle, smooth movements. It provides a great tool for quieting the mind, feeling fully present and “in sync” with your body: this is the fundamental healing power of Qigong.
HOW ABOUT NEW AGE MUSIC DURING THE PRACTICE?
Often the right meditation music can help you a great deal in setting the pace and is conducive to the process. Like learning any form of meditation it is fundamental to be driven and have the right guidance. I found that having the right teacher, a community of supportive practitioners and creating the right environment, including your favorite meditation music, or appropriate Qigong music, is the key.
