Qigong: Better than the Gym for Balanced Health

Qigong is far superior to ordinary exercise for overall wellness.  I love physical exercise. I have practiced sports, hiking, and every type of fitness activity. However I always find qigong to be the greater system for muscle tone, strength, and overall health. Here are the reasons: Qigong encompasses the whole body, mind, and spirit. Qigong helps me relax and fall in love with my body. Qigong heals and detoxifies the body in miutes, infinitely faster than ordinary exercise. Qigong is more energy-efficient. It gives you boundless energy, far more than you spend doing it. Qigong is easier to do, more…

Do You Drink Enough Water? How to Absorb it

Your body needs water to live. All body functions require the presence of water. Your organs, circulation, energy flow to the cells, and even your thoughts rely on water. When there’s no water, there’s no nourishment, no releasing toxins, no joy, and no life! How much water do you drink per day? Start with 72 -80 ounces daily, drinking just 6-8 ounces at a time. Quality water is your #1 key to good health. Yep, dehydration drastically affects the exchange of nutrients across cell membranes.

Srijana is Celebrating Losar in Darjeeling

Srijana is in the Himalayas for Tibetan New Year! Festivities begin on the new moon Friday February 16th 2018, and last for several weeks.

Top 12 Acupressure Points to Optimize Your Health

The simple act of pressing these essential 12 points resets your body’s subtle energy layers, to allow health and wellbeing to flow more easily. Just a few minutes of acupressure on key body points unblocks your meridians. Use gentle yet firm pressure with either middle finger or thumb on these 12 points. Massage in a circular motion for 10 seconds, fell the Qi penetrating into the body, and breathe deeply. As you press, your brain releases endorphins, chemicals that calm pain and invite pleasurable feelings. Your muscles relax and blood flows more freely. As tension recedes, the body finds balance, and you’ll feel better. These are my 12 top priority points…

Common Diseases, Thoughts, and How to Heal Them

Are our thoughts linked in any way to our physical body? Can habitual thought patterns make our health better or worse? I recently saw the documentary HEAL, in which scientists and spiritual teachers discuss how the mind, beliefs and emotions impact our health. Some diseases have “no known cause”, such as Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, and Chronic Fatigue. I wonder where do they come from? What thought patterns are linked to them? If we can change the thoughts at their root, can we heal the disease? Louise Hays left us a legacy of tools to heal ourselves. One of my favorites is what she calls “The List”. Through her mindful techniques and…

Introducing Five Seasons Medical Qigong Classes

Five Seasons Medical Qigong is a total approach to health in body, mind, and spirit. You could call it a kind of meditation that penetrates, clears, and enlightens first the body tissues, then the mind, and finally the spirit. These three are ultimately inseparable.
