What is Contemplative Movement?

Contemplative Movement, as taught by Rosanna, is based on the Chinese practice of Qigong. Qigong's great appeal is that anyone can enrich their lives by adopting it into their daily routine--regardless of ability, age, belief system, or life circumstances. These simple movements enable people to feel and perform better due to higher levels of energy, stamina, and an overall greater sense of balance. Contemplative Movement can help you maintain your health, calm your mind, and reconnect you with your inner self.

What are the Benefits?

  • Improve physical strength and energy
  • Help relieve pain, illness, and physical problems

  • Aid in increasing longevity and overall good health
“To learn contemplative practice is to learn what we need so as to live truthfully and honestly and lovingly…”Dr. Rowan Williams

Psychoneuroimmunology

Psychoneuroimmunology is the study of the relationship between the mind, or psychological processes, and the nervous and immune systems. The meditation component of Qigong is an example of a "psychological process" that affects physical health and wellbeing. The moving meditation of Qigong lowers stress, strengthens the immune system, reduces chronic inflammation, and improves cellular metabolism and can be considered a "mind-body" practice or "mind-body medicine." Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical School and Founder of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine. describes the profound affects of the mind on the body and health based on his lifetime work as a cardiologist and researcher. Dr. Benson compares health and wellbeing to a three legged stool. The legs are pharmaceuticals, surgery, and self-care. Self-care includes nutrition, exercise, the relaxation response (practices to achieve the relaxation response include Qigong), and belief or faith. Benson is quick to clarify that faith as a psychological state is healing, regardless of its origin. Mind-body practices that elicit the relaxation response such as Qigong and Tai Chi have been used worldwide for millennia to reverse the detrimental physiological effects of stress.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR


“I have always been comforted by nature. Whether out trekking around on foot or driving through the pastures, I’ve never been disappointed by nature’s beauty. There was always something wonderful and new to see in God’s creation!

When I got older, there were less and less of those trips into that consoling space. Life’s responsibilities took hold and various kinds of stressors came into play. When I first encountered Qigong, it was a way for me to mitigate some of those stressors and work toward wellness. Along the way, I discovered that the practice is closely linked with the natural world and the cycles of nature, too. Becoming a participant in this beautiful and ancient tradition/practice has given me a greater sense of wellbeing and a deeper sense of my own spirituality. ”
