QiGong is a Chinese mind-body-spirit practice that is gaining popularity in the Western world. In this session, Ann Duvall, M.A., NCC, LPC (bio below) will introduce us to Qigong and how it can be used to enhance self-awareness and deepen a spiritual practice. According to the ASERVIC competencies, professional counselors should be familiar with the most common spiritual frameworks and recognize their role in human functioning. You may decide to integrate some of the exercises we learn together into your daily life for self-care or to deepen awareness of this embodied spiritual practice.
While Ann will lead everyone in this moving meditation, it is optional. Qigong is highly adaptable for all levels and we will be doing both seated and standing Qigong, but you can remain seated for the entire practice. If you are interested in participating in the experiential part of this event, you may be more comfortable in loose clothing and flat shoes.
(MCA & MASERVIC members, reach out to Dr. Maya Georgieva at maservic@MDCounseling.org to request your special registration code.)
Ann has been exploring traditional Chinese medicine and Qigong since 2003 after feeling the “qi” from energy meridian work through acupuncture treatments. After decades of study and meaningful experiences in the expressive and healing arts, Ann enjoys sharing the Qi through designing wellness programs that support personalized health through Qigong, meditation, self-care and other mindful practices. She has taught qigong, mindfulness and integrative wellness in schools, universities, integrative health care facilities, assisted living centers and corporate wellness programs. When she isn’t teaching, Ann sees individual clients as a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Spiritual Director.
