Taiji Shen Gong is a very rich and expansive mind-body practice. One aspect has a very clear purpose: to elevate your shen, your “spirit.” But also, the three parts, Heaven, Earth & Human, tell a story of Heaven and Earth coming together to create Human. Qigong helps induce a relaxation response that may positively impact your body’s natural healing ability and increase your sense of balance in a seemingly stressful world.
