How are you feeling body-wise? I ask this question at the end of every qigong session with my massage students. Last night’s responses included the following:
“I feel wonderful! I am feeling all this energy like a liquid that flows when we do these qigong exercises. I keep practicing with the qi ball at work. People want to know what I am doing, and I explain to them, I am working with the energy.” This was Angel Ortiz, purchasing agent for Lazy Acres.
