Welcome to Fun with Qigong

My First Post

Welcome to my blog about Qigong (also often spelled Chi Kung.) This is my first blog, and my first post. In the coming weeks, months, and years I will use this blogging form and forum to share many ideas and exercises about health and healing. The chief focus and medium for writing about living the good life will be through Qigong. Qigong, as I will write about here, is the art of gentle, energetic exercise leading to optimal health and happiness.
I have been studying and practicing this amazing and enjoyable movement art on a daily basis since 1994. (Well, almost daily. I have missed a few days here and there.) I have found Qigong to be a rich field of exploration, one of many rewards, many treasures to discover, uncover and shine up.

Over the years I have written and printed many papers on Qigong for my students, clients, and my own use. I have watched hundreds of videos,  and digested hundreds of books and articles about Qigong and related arts. I have written hundreds of thousands of words in my journals about health, healing, and Qigong.

I’ve been learning, collecting, practicing, refining, considering. I’ve saved up a lot of information and ideas and I am excited that I am finally going to begin sharing my thoughts to a wider audience.
Good Qi to you,
