Aung Medical Qi Gong & Intuition

With Dr. Steven K.H. Aung, CM, MD, OMD, PhD

July 22 - 25, 2021

Realign your vital energies with Qi Gong, an ancient Chinese wellness practice of breath-work, concentration, and movement.

Gain a greater appreciation of yourself, others, and the natural environment through experiencing the gentle, relaxing, and rejuvenating aspects of traditional Qi Gong. Learn the four basic breathing techniques and practice them along with concentration and posture/movement exercises. Harmonize your Qi (vital energy) with phonation methods using natural sounds produced by the body.

With stabilized and sharpened concentration, learn how to assess Qi and medical conditions in a hands-on approach to heal yourself, others, and the environment. Practice Qi Gong in the natural wilderness of Hollyhock’s forests and beach. Everyone is welcome.

The time I spent with Dr. Aung at Hollyhock is among one of the warmest memories I will carry forward in my life. The combination of mental, physical and spiritual training was practical and inspiring, all at once. He is truly a Qi Gong master healer and to participate in his workshop is to give yourself the gift of healing. – Theo Lamb, 2016
