WHRC invites you to learn QiGong for healing amidst the horses at the Wild Horse Rescue Center.

In this workshop you will learn moving styles of QiGong, breathing techniques and the basics of medical QiGong application with the horses at the Wild Horse Rescue Center.

QiGong is a very S-L-O-W series of movements, quiet mindfulness and slow breathing. With roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts and philosophy dating back to 2700 BC, QiGong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance energy or qi/chi. QI is the “Leading Force” behind blood circulation and feels like a PULSE. During Qigong practice people report sensing a powerful blood flow into their hands and feet. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) states that virtually every disease is caused by lack of blood to organs, joints & extremities.

Medical QiGong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. As with the other “Branches” of TCM, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures.

Animals respond in a favorable manner relating to the slow movements of qigong. Horses in particular contribute and recognize the exchange of the electromagnetic fields exchange between them and humans. Gentleness of spirit is communicated and felt immediately making your experience with any animal 100% more improved. Your observation level is heightened, your energy level is positive which forms an encouraging platform for the animal’s trust. Animals can detect slight levels of impending danger from other species not just through body language but through involuntary body mechanics. In QiGong your body language is not threatening, but fluent and flowing; your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure are all slow, and controlled. In moving slow not only do animals respond favorably, but you have a greater awareness of the “energy” that surrounds YOU, of the animals, people and environment. You can “feel” it, and harness its force to charge your body and

Learn to apply these techniques with the horse residents at the ranch. Watch how your electromagnetic field parallels each horse and watch how their muscles respond immediately to the Qi from your hands.
