Shaolin Master's Fundraiser Ends in a Few Hours

This was posted a few months ago, but it seems that a reminder is in order, just in case there is anyone out there who intended to donate, but has not done so just yet.  The fundraiser for the Shaolin Master, Shi Xing Long, is coming to an end very soon.  There are only about 65 hours left.  So far $3000 has been raised,which is wonderful, but Master Shi Xing Long needs about $15,000 to restart his school.  The possibility of raising all of the money needed within the next 65 hours is slim, but every little bit helps and even a $10 donation will go a long way.  Master Shi Xing Long will continue working and saving money to restart his school and anything we can donate will allow him to open his school that much sooner.  Please consider spreading some Christmas cheer to the other side of the world this holiday season.  Let's show Master Shi Xing Long what Christmas is all about.  Thank you for your donations.

January 2013 Qi Gong Workshops in Amador County

In January of 2013 two, weekend Qi Gong workshops will be available in Amador County.  The focus of these workshops is to teach as many people as possible simple Qi Gong routines for health that have been used in China for centuries to maintain healthy, strong, flexible bodies. 

The first workshop will be held on Sat. Jan. 5, and will be focused on "Deer Qigong."  This form of Qi Gong is part of the "Wu Qin Xi" or "Five Animal Playing" Qi Gong set.  The Chinese developed the Deer Qigong routine to mainly focus on balancing and strengthening the kidneys, but many of the exercises are also good for balance; coordination; and back, core, and hip flexibility.

The second workshop will be held on Sat. Jan. 12, and will be covering the "Ba Duan Jin" or "8 Pieces of Brocade" Qigong set.  This set is very popular all over the world for its simplicity and the safe nature of all the exercises.  This Qi Gong set can really be viewed as a whole body tune-up, with exercises that help improve range of motion, strength the body, improve balance, improve circulation and balance the body's energy flow. 

More information about these workshops and their location, time and price of attendance can be found on the new "Workshops and Seminars" page.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
