Sometimes it can take a setback to wake you up to what is valuable and what isn't. I had been fighting an intense legal battle with devastating effects on my business and on my health. I had to face starting over again very late in life. I couldn't do much about the drain on my time and money; however, I could do something about the drain on my health. Thank God for qigong!
It helped me to reduce my stress and anxiety so that I could maintain a balanced perspective and inner calm. By using relatively simple techniques like longevity breathing together with more advance practices such as Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong, Opening the Energy Gates Qigong, and Taoist water method meditation I discovered in qigong a remarkable ally for strengthening and maintaining my health and overall wellbeing.
In November 2009 I was lucky to attend The Chi Rev Workout workshop in Basel Switzerland with Bruce. There I learned D&T movement 1, 4 and 5 and began practicing on a regular basis.
Since then - the really great thing is - that I do not suffer from springtime pollen allergies anymore. This is my 3rd year allergy free.
Recently I completed the online D&T course and I am now able to perform the full set of seven movements with ease.
