Qigong & Meditation
To be comfortable in the cold, keep moving; To be comfortable in the heat, hold still;
To be comfortable in the world,
Stay Calm and Clear
Lao Tzu's Real Power as translated by Ursula K. LeGuin
Opening to Health invites students and clients to empower themselves in healing, energizing and deepening their connection to the body, mind and heart. A combination of ongoing classes in Qigong (Qi Gong, Chi Gong, Chi Kung) and Meditation, as well as workshops and private instruction are taught and conveyed in a non-competitive, compassionate environment.
Oliver Wilson has been enthusiastic about sharing and teaching practices that improve health and wellness since 1998. These arts have been a central part of his personal healing and health regimen. He hopes that you connect with something that feeds and fuels you on your path!
