In the summer, the heart system is organ on duty and is helping to circulate your blood and lymph, support your hormones, thyroid, and small intestine, and stay emotionally balanced. The heart is also responsible for wisdom and spiritual transformation. It may or may not be summer where you are, but no matter what the season, your heart is working hard and will benefit from your love!

You do not need any qigong experience in order to participate or receive the benefits!

This will help you balance many of the symptoms listed above and also help you with wisdom and spiritual growth. We will encourage you to engage in these healing practices and we will provide support and accountability to keep you on track.
