Crystal Signing Bowl Meditation
with Dr. Darren Orr
Saturday, December 4th - 1:15-2:45pm
Join us for our monthly Meditation Class with Dr. Darren Orr, Doctor of Chinese Medicine in Medical QiGong Therapy, Daoist Priest, NCTMB/LMT Massage Therapist, Reiki and QiGong Master, Meditation teacher, Sound Healer
During the course of our life many emotional, mental and environmental factors interfere with the emotional and mental state of the body. When the body is vibrating out of tune or non-harmoniously, it is called dis-ease. The human body is the sum of many vibrations emanating from the organs, muscles and nerves. Vibrations spread in waves. There is no better medium for waves as water. The human body is 2/3 water. This makes it the perfect medium for the propagation of waves. When a singing bowl is played, they call on the body memories of original harmonic frequencies. Heart and respiratory rates change, self-healing powers are activated and the immune system strengthened.
The sound and vibrations emanating from the bowls re-tune the listener’s body by opening, clearing and rebalancing the 7 chakras, 20 meridians and 365 acu-points. When the body is vibrating in harmony with the whole, it is in a state of homeostasis, or sound health.
Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and bring pillows or any other items to enhance your own level of relaxation. All levels are welcome. $25.

Medical QiGong is the ancient art and science of cultivating and balancing one’s life force energy or Qi (chee) for health, healing and well-being. This is done by combining posture with slow gentle flowing movements and stretches along with breathing, intention and visualization which leads you into a deep state of meditation. By calming the mind, QiGong allows you to increase stamina, balance, flexibility, vitality, relaxation, blood circulation, immune function and overall quality of life, then the natural self-healing ability of the body is activated and accelerated.
QiGong is the foundation of Chinese Medicine, art, philosophy, culture and the martial arts. It is sometimes called acupuncture without the needles, Chinese yoga or meditation in motion. Qigong is the medicine, while Tai chi is a martial art.
Qigong has all, if not more benefit, than Acupuncture and Tai chi because it’s much simpler and easier to learn and can be done seated in a chair, standing or even lying down.
No Experience is necessary. All are welcome! Everything can be modified to meet your needs and condition!!! $25.
