If you’re like most of my readers, then you want to heal, to feel fully alive, and reach your full potential in life. You’re interested in finding effective solutions to things like depression, chronic pain, anxiety, fatigue, and stress. Maybe you’re interested in mindfulness practices like qigong and tai chi, but there’s too little time, and so much information to sift through.

Maybe you feel like this reader:

It’s cliché, but I’m sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I’m in pain all the time, I’m anxious, and I’m exhausted. I tried yoga, but it wasn’t for me. I feel like qigong and tai chi might be able help me, but I just don’t know where to start, or if I’ll stick with it once I do.

If so, you’re not alone.

I Know How You Feel…

I know what it feels like to suffer from depression, anxiety, chronic low-back pain, fatigue, and massive stress.

For years, I struggled to find balance. I was in my 20s, I had just graduated from Columbia University, and I knew that something was wrong. At the time, I didn’t realize that it was clinical depression, and I had no clue what an anxiety attack was.

But I knew that I had back pain, and I knew that I was unwell, and so I started searching. I’m so grateful that I found qigong and tai chi.

What brought me out of the darkness was learning to let not just my body, but also my breath and my energy flow.

Some people don’t understand how a combination of movement, breath, and meditation can be medicine. But the ancient Eastern masters did. They understood. And I’m so grateful to them for passing these amazing healing arts down through the generations.

    I’m Anthony Korahais, and I used qigong (pronounced “chee gung”) to heal from clinical depression, low back pain, anxiety, and chronic fatigue. Today, I’m the director of Flowing Zen, an international organization with students in 48 counties. I’ve been teaching qigong since 2005, I’ve served on the board for the National Qigong Association, and I’ve helped thousands of people to use qigong for their own stubborn health challenges. If you’re ready to get started with qigong, there’s no better way than my best selling book, which comes with free videos and meditations. The sooner you read my book, the sooner you can start healing! Click here to see my book on Amazon. (Edit)
