Bruno leads and mentors co-leaders for practice groups. A typical practice follows guidelines from Spring Forest Qigong and recommendations from other Masters. A typical practice assumes some awareness of Qigong through SFQ Level 1 training, although teaching the basics is always done for newcomers.
The mind has the power to heal pain and to create joy. The purpose of a healing meditation is to tap in Loving-Kindness to use unconditional love, the most powerful healing energy. Bruno encourages participants to practice daily meditation as part of their normal healing journey.
How: A typical practice lasts 1.0 to 2 hours depending on location. A usual sequence: A gathering discussion, exercises to detoxify and activate the body’s energy, some active exercises, a specific topical meditation, and a final discussion. The practices are adapted to the qigong training and physical conditions of the participants. A practice session might be devoted to teach energy-based techniques new to the group or provide a place for in-depth discussion of an issue important to the group.
A person in a group can experience energy flows at a greater extent than when practicing alone, hence the benefit of group practices. Most group practices can only take place once a week and it is therefore recommended to practice alone every day the rest of the week, at the same time of the day if possible.
