The Art of Qigong", Deconditioning Your Mind and Reconnecting to Your Genuine Self
with DeVante Love
Nowadays, we are constantly bombarded with information and, yet, feel more lost and confused than ever before. This workshop makes the bold claim that the copious amount of information we are consuming is the source of the disconnection we feel from ourselves. When feeling disconnected from ourselves, we not only struggle to understand (yet alone process) our emotions. We also attract conditioning and begin to behave inauthentically. From an eastern philosophical perspective, we lose touch with our authentic mind, body, and soul.
This workshop will show us how to disconnect from the flurry of information around us and begin to undo the disingenuous conditioning put upon us. We will begin by examining authenticity from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy. Then, we will integrate these mental principles into the body through a guided TCM-inspired meditative practice, Qigong. Throughout the facilitation, we will feel and understand how information has conditioned our behavior and caused us to feel lost. We will also consciously reconnect to our authentic selves and leave the session inspired to continue fostering this connection.
