QigongDharma is the confluence of the streams of qigong and meditation – embodiment and insight. It is a pathway to radiant well-being and lends access to direct knowledge of who we are in the universal sense. Practicing QigongDharma empowers meditators with calm, clear energy, strength, and vibrant health – bringing peace to the body, heart, and spirit.
Radiant Heart Qigong embraces action and stillness, cultivating:
- Well-Being in all dimensions
- Ancient and Modern Somatic and Dharmic Wisdom
- Meditation and Integral Mindfulness
- In-motion practices that “presence awareness” through the elements of physical and energetic alignment for well-being and centered-grounded presence and balance in harmony
Radiant Heart Qigong teaches the continuity of meditation in stillness and in motion, using the modalities of:
- Embodied Mindfulness
- Natural concentration
- Centered Presence
- Compassion, Wisdom and Kindness
These initial and primary distinctions represent only part of the energetic and cognitive transmission. This is the practice of integrating embodied mindfulness, creating wholeness in meditative action with a quality of mindfulness that I call “presence awareness.” These teachings are fundamentally in harmony with the principles and practices of Buddhist Dharma and Daoist cultivation.
Qigong taught in this way is a dharma teaching in itself. The intersection of stillness and movement finds the fullness of expression in qigong meditation. Well-being, harmony, and bliss are brought into present direct wakefulness – the ground, the path, and the goal of Dharma-based qigong. These health and longevity practices have been developed in Daoist and Buddhist environments over the centuries.
The principles of harmony with nature, compassion, centeredness, and kindness are dynamically present. Learning and knowledge are now a matter of direct experience in embodied meditation. Healing and transformation are a matter of the skill of ‘letting go’ into the luminous intelligence of our true nature. Recognition of our oneness with all that is – is no longer a concept but a direct experience that arises simultaneously with our ordinary awareness.
