Beginning Qi Gong Meditation

Beginning qi gong meditation begins with sitting in a comfortable position.

You can sit with your eyes open or eyes closed.

Then simply breathe in and breathe out. You breathe in into to dan tien and breathe out from your dan tien.

The dan tien is an energy spot in the abdomen. It is located three finger widths below the navel. This is the center of gravity of the body.

Once you have established yourself in your dan tien, simply follow your breathing.

You don’t have to control your breathing. Just allow it to flow in and out naturally.

It is remarkable how similar this is to mindfulness of breathing. In fact, they are almost identical.

In Zen meditation, for example, you pay attention to the rising and falling of the abdomen.

You know what? It doesn’t matter what you call it!

It doesn’t matter how you do it!

It only matters that you begin a simple form of meditation by following your breath.

You can do it lying down.

You can do it sitting up.

You can do it while walking.

You can do it while doing the dishes!

Just do it!
