Strategies 1: book

Yoga and QiGong have many styles and forms that teach connecting or returning to source, using body, breath, and mind regulations. Yoga source is called prana. QiGong source is called chi. Source is "ecstasy, our primordial state", D. Chopra. M.D;.; "something wonderful inside of you which you can open to." Ruiz "There is nothing more important than feeling good -- the connection to vibrational source." Abraham. "The only thing that can keep me from being aware of 'infinite source', is my mind." A. Moorjani

"The effects of each course becomes more profound as they accumulate through regular training". L. Johnson. Training balances the energies of ha and tha, the sun and moon, feminine and masculine, active and passive, yin and yang through regulation of body, breath, and mind. Training cultivates strength, endurance, flexibility and relaxation. Training is meditation in action. Wonderful experiences may evolve during training, the real value being in what happens after.

All offerings are a co-creative process; we are all ever expanding. The outcome for each individual has infinite possibilities.
