What Students Are Saying
Somatic Coaching with Qigong taught me much more than just how to do the practice itself. It was very insightful and rejuvenating to go through each body system, learn the bright and dark side emotions and feelings that each affect; and how to uplift them. The class expanded my ability to receive (gather) as well as to visualize my body and appreciate it ~ each individual system, major organ and the miracle of its connectivity. At MCS we talk that it all begins with us, and then we can take it out into the world. This class teaches us to recognize our positive energy within as well as that around us from the universe.
I had a superb experience in this class [Where Mind Goes, Qi Goes: Somatic Coaching with Qigong]. There is a universe to be explored when it comes to understanding somatic work. I just got more and more curious.
Where Mind Goes, Qi Goes: Somatic Coaching with Qigong shares the ancient wisdom of Qigong while coupling it with the modern power that is Coaching.
Where Mind Goes, Qi Goes: Somatic Coaching with Qigong introduces us to a simple yet essential practice for, in a sense, returning us to our bodies where we can really begin to sense the energy that we have. This is nourishing for us as coaches who often absorb and hold the energy of our clients, while allowing us to incorporate energy generating, diffusing, directing, and managing practices with those same clients. This class reminds us of the need to stay connected to our bodily wisdom–energetic as well as physical–and not get lost in our head.
