April 15th & 16th, 2023 from 11:00AM - 3:00PM MST
NEW Level 1! This workshop now contains the Five Elements Movements along with new language and new activation focus. You will learn a lot and love this new teaching!
In this NEW Spring Forest Qigong (SFQ) Level 1 Workshop you will learn techniques to help yourself heal, increase self-awareness, build internal energy and develop a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
Qigong means “working with Qi” (commonly known as energy). It is a science of using the breath, body, mind, and sound to Achieve and Maintain Perfect Health.
AUTHENTIC QIGONG COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING
Its deep roots set it apart. Spring Forest Qigong Level One – Qi Activation is not your standard Qigong practice class. Rather, it is comprehensive training fully encompassing the ancient science of Qigong. This training grounds you firmly in that tradition while helping you understand the mystery and secrets of Qigong Healing.
The NEW LEVEL 1 teachings focus more on Qi Activation and connecting with your body’s energy and the intelligence of the Universe to bring about deep healing of body, mind, and spirit. You will also feel and experience more connection to nature and the changing of the seasons.

This includes all Level 1 handouts and certificate. During this workshop, you will be introduced to Spring Forest Qigong (SFQ). You will learn all about qi (chee), how qi flows in your body, and how you can use qi to heal yourself and others. Your instructor will be me, Sue Crites, one of three certified SFQ instructors in Canada. You will enjoy a supportive healing experience. We will benefit from our collective energy. The best is you will learn lifelong tools and techniques to heal yourself. This workshop is in a Zoom classroom setting. Bring a pen and notebook!
This class will be held using the free software Zoom. You will be sent a link to join the classes, once you click the link, Zoom will be automatically installed to your computer (safe!).
