Qigong: Our Summer Practice
In summer, the Qi (energy) that was stored in the lower body during the winter, then rose during spring, continues to rise upward and move outward. We want to be social, engage in projects, and be in Nature.
In Chinese medicine, this season corresponds to the Heart. Just as our physical heart needs to be nourished, so too our spiritual Heart desires to be nourished- to connect with something greater than ourselves.
Most qigong consists of three aspects--movement, breath and the mind--in varying proportions. After you’ve learned the components of the Summer practice, you can create your own program to fit your schedule and lifestyle.

Kirk Norby graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Performance. He began a regular practice of qigong in 1989, and has studied Medical, Daoist and Buddhist qigong, Daoist meditation, and self-massage from teachers based in and outside the United States.
Since 2015, Kirk has been practicing a system of qigong exercises, meditations and dietary practices that help the body adjust to seasonal changes. He enjoys the flexibility and variety of the program as well as the sense of well-being he experiences after his daily practice and throughout the year.
Kirk’s goal is to support other people who want to discover the benefits of these practices.
