“You should face east when practicing qigong!!”
If you’ve been doing qigong for a while, then you’ve probably heard this from a teacher or two. Or perhaps you read it in a book along with some other crazy qigong rules (like the no-sex rule).
Or maybe you heard that you should face south instead of east. I mean, one of my teachers even told me to face north!
Well, which is it? Or does it even matter?
That’s the subject of today’s Walk & Talk. I’ll discuss the importance of the direction you face while practicing qigong. I’ll also give you a simple way to make sure you’re always facing the right direction during a qigong session, no matter where you are!
Best regards, Sifu Anthony I’m Anthony Korahais, and I used qigong to heal from clinical depression, low back pain, anxiety, and chronic fatigue. I’ve already taught thousands of people from all over the world how to use qigong for their own stubborn health challenges. As the director of Flowing Zen and a board member for the National Qigong Association, I'm fully committed to helping people with these arts. In addition to my blog, I also teach online courses and offer in-person retreats and workshops.
