Qigong and Enlightenment

ZY qigong is a practice of finding our true self and connecting our true self to the universe. It’s not a practice that’s based on knowledge, but rather direct transmission from practitioners. Mark Frighetti will be teaching level one in a ZY qigong intensive, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., November 18 and 19.

Qigong is about leaving what is commonly known and opening our hearts to the greater mysteries of nature, thus releasing oneself to flow within nature. It is a practice that uses our physical body as our greatest gift and guide for self-empowerment and deep transformation.

It’s not about transcending from our daily life on earth but rather making earth one of our greatest supports and allies in this transformation. There’s a reason why human beings stand between earth and sky. Many ancient teachings say that with an incarnated body, we can reach enlightenment in a lifetime. While dis-incarnated, it may take a soul eons. This practice is through the body, not leaving the body or disregarding it. Staying grounded while opening the heart and flowing with nature simplifies this transformation.

Mark Frighetti teaches ZY qigong at Desert Milagros, 3438 N. Country Club, in Tucson, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. every Thursday. For more information, call 520-404-8745, email QigongMark@yahoo.com or visit ZYQigongAZ.com.
