The history of Qigong goes back over 5,000 years and has its roots in the ancient shamanic practices of China.  Taoists and Shaolin Buddhists were among the first in the country to combine breath and movement to increase health all around the inner medicine wheel: heart, body, mind, spirit, and life force. For martial artists, qigong training is still credited as the basis for developing extraordinary skills, such as the ability to withstand blows and the ability to break hard objects because qigong brings energy to the surface of the body and increases circulation.

Qigong is classified as a “soft” martial art that can be practiced widely by anyone of any age and ability level.

Today’s guest is Diane Smith.  Diane is a sound healer and a certified Spring Forest Qigong instructor (Level 4) and Master Healer. Diane loves to share the gift of Spring Forest QiGong with others. She has witnessed the empowerment that it brings to others lives. Sound Therapy is also a practice that Diane is passionate about.   Diane utilizes Tibetan Bowls and tuning forks to enhance energy treatments.  She also uses her bowls in her SFQ practice groups. 

She offers a gift of meditation near the end - it's worth the listen. Enjoy the show!
