EarthPrayers Qi Gong:
Saturdays, 9:00AM - 10:30AM Mountain Time,
Wednesdays, 5:30PM - 7:00PM Mountain Time
EarthPrayers Qi Gong is a contemporary Qi Gong inspired mythopoetic prayer on behalf of our world, ourselves, and all Life. It arises from my own Qi Gong practice and relationship to the wild landscape. It utilizes primarily adaptations of Qi Gong forms from the MogaDao Tradition as well as being influenced cross-culturally by Daoism, the western alchemical tradition, indigenous teachings, as well as by my many years of involvement with Joanna Macy and The Work That Reconnects. It is a response to and offering for this potent time of unraveling and reweaving we find our culture and world journeying through.
*This class is open to new students

Payment for Online Classes:
I have decided as a bow to the opportunity for positive change and adaptation the virus holds out to us, that I will offer my online classes as Gift Economy, a step away from Capitalism. Like many of you, I am out of work with both my office and studio closed and as such have no income, but we can take this time to explore how we support one another. You may choose to pay what a normal online class of this level of quality costs, or you may choose more, less, or even zero. I am offering these courses as a gift, trusting the generosity of participants to support me in developing and sustaining in-depth online learning journeys like these classes.
Contact me if you're interested at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to my weekly classes I offer a series of workshops to introduce and deepen the basic Daoist principles of Qi Gong as taught by the Lotus Nei Gong School.
I am also continuing a series of workshops that are a return to my roots and an offering from the emergent edge of my own healing, Qi Gong practice, and my explorations of how to align with, navigate, and hold these challenging times on our beloved Earth. These will include the Deep Earth Dreaming, EarthPrayers Qi Gong, The Work That Reconnects, and Plant Spirit Circles.
A note on pandemic pricing. half day workshops are offered at a flat fee of $45, however we are striving to support anyone who wants to access these practices. If you need to receive support you are welcome to offer as little as $15; if you are in a position to offer additional support to this work you are welcome to contribute accordingly.
