Hold Qi up Mariehamn [2006-01-28]

This season's basic course in Hold Qi Up in Mariehamn on the Åland Islands took place on January 28-29. Some 40 people spent the weekend learning or refining our excercises in a strong Qi field. The weekly practice sessions in Mariehamn are very popular, which is an contributing factor in the very good results seen there. The warm, loving and positive atmosphere, which one of the first time students pointed out, also contributes to the increase in the number of participants as well as the good effects of the training.

Some comments from the participants:

"This is my first course. I can feel that my hands, which are normally cold, are now much warmer. I couldn't bend my wrists backwards at all, due to a poorly healed inflammation, but now I can bend them almost 90 degrees."

"Since I took my first basic course, this is my second, my migraine has improved a lot and my sore sholders are also better. I used to have migrains up to four times a week, but now I've had periods when I have only one migraine attack a month."

"This is my first Qigong course and I already feel calmer."

"I've participated in one course earlier and now I sleep much better after having practiced."

"My circulation has improved. My neck is much better, but most of all I notice how much more positive I am mentally."

"This is my third basic course and I used to be a person who always did everything very quickly. Now I'm much calmer. Both my children and my colleagues say so."
