Sat. 25 March 2017, 8:30 am – 9:30 am AEDT
Qigong is pronounced chee gung, meaning cultivating energy. It is a body, mind and spirit system practiced for holistic health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.
Canberra Practitioner, Sunny Forsyth, has brought his Qigong practice to Canberra and is ready to make an impact on the increasing levels of stress in our modern society.
“After suffering a chronic illness myself whilst travelling through Asia I can honestly say that I know from personal experience Qigong works.” Says Sunny
Sunny tells how he caught a tropical mosquito borne illnesses that left him struggling to get out of bed in the morning, with no appetite, and chronic pain as he laboured to walk from place to place.
“It was this illness and spiralling feelings of despair that led me to an Ancient Chinese Esoteric martial arts practice called Qigong. After many months I had my life back with more vitality and wellness than I imagined possible.
“That’s when I knew I needed to ‘pay it forward’ and give others what was given to me." Sunny said.
After several years of training with some of the best teachers in Asia Sunny understands Qigong in depth and explains some of the benefits of this 3000 year old practice, “The foremost beneﬁt of Qigong lies in the relief or prevention of chronic health problems such as cancer, internal organ ailments, poor circulation, nerve pain, back and joint problems and general physical disease. It is also known for managing stress, anger, depression, morbid thoughts, and general confusion that prey on the mind and thirdly, for balancing oneself on a spiritual level.
“Yet Qigong is so flexible no one is excluded. The slow gentle movements of most Qigong forms can be easily adapted for the physically challenged and practiced by all age groups.” He said.
Sunny’s main concern for the modern world is the increasing statistics for mental stress. “We see the personal impact stress has on workers, their families and employers. Mental Stress Claims result in loss of productivity and long periods of absence, costing Australian businesses more than $10 billion per year and added pressure on our health system.
“Practices such as Qigong can help people manage these types of illnesses and bring balance back to peoples lives, thereby benefiting them, their families and ultimately Australia.” Sunny said.
Sunny is launching an introductory class in Qigong at Higher Function 23 Petrie Plaza, Canberra City, ACT on Saturday 25 March from 8:30am to 9:30 am.
