Qigong - Chi Kung
OUR AUSTRALIA DREAMING EMBRACES
a modern approach to Qigong (Chi Kung),
NOT as some mystical practice or cult,
but as ANY form of exercise,
controlled breathing and relaxation training
to work and develop skill through
mind-body focused energy
in order to promote
better health and wellbeing where
a modern duty-of-care and
safety are paramount.
Our GENTLE WAY
of practising Qigong (Chi Kung)
assists in all aspects of participating
in our Tai Chi Qigong classes
and Gentle Way of Self Defence classes
in learning strategies of relaxing and
ENCHANCING the POWER OF THE MIND.
The spelling Tai Chi and Chi Kung
is the Wades Giles and
Taijiquan and Qigong
is the so-called phonetic Pinyin spelling.
The efficient use of energy combined with an effective way of learning any martial form, movement, sequence or application whether for health, relaxation or self-defence. Our heuristic, mirror-method of learning how to effectively copy and follow provides the rationale for our Tai Chi Qigong Freestyle Form and solo practicing a non-standard form or sequence of movements as a means to create an awareness that focused practice does not have to rely on remembering a specific choreographed sequence such as the standard Tai Chi or Qigong form, Karate Kata or Pattern.

Don’t be a slave to any predetermined sequence.
Let the freestyle sequence of slow and controlled deflect anxiety and stress,
training your mind to find a rhythm and pattern that neutralizes anger and pain
reflected in the rear-view mirror of life.
Be motivated through the discipline of sustained effort, drills, repetition with focussed practice,
don’t become a victim to rage in life or on the road and hooked on speed.
Go with the flow, more power to you!!
