Movement and sitting meditation.
Positive thinking, visualization and imagery.
Mind body harmony through breathing exercises.
Body and energy point tapping.
Healing power of our hands.
Using the healing power of sounds and vibration through recitation, instrument playing and music.

Brief Instructions for the Three Awaken Qigong's Sounds
To learn how to use the sounds properly and safely, attend Awaken Qigong Classes or Workshops.
The sounds are intended to be practiced gently, mindfully, and with proper guidance.
For each sound, the inhale and exhale are controlled.
Each person will vocalize the sounds in his or her own unique way, depending on factors such as: breath, lung capacity, vocal chords, energy level, emotional state, intention, concentration, and healing visualization. The energetic vibration you create is uniquely yours.
