Qi Gong. A health “exercise”, similar to Ti Chi. I received the practice from Judith Boice. It seems appropriate to do it in the woods. It is a very centering exercise. As I stood feet grounded to the ground, I was centering on the qi within and without. I was there surrounded by this amazing woods. The stream flowing, birds singing. Present to the moment.
Returning from this experience, the woods around me was very present. The oak tree alive. Breathing the air around refreshing. The woods was present within and without me. I climbed to the east side of the tree, gently leaned against its trunk. Enjoyed the sun and light surrounding me. Enjoyed some moments. Then whistled.
