Healing Chronic Pain with Yi Ren Qigong
Come in, remove your shoes, have a cup of tea, and meet the team from Seattle’s Institute of Qigong & Integrative Medicine in this special presentation at Marlene’s Market.
Yi Ren Qigong is an energy-based practice designed to support an individual in the exploration and expression of the intelligence and wisdom already within the body. Regular practice of Yi Ren Qigong helps one understand the body’s energetic, informational, emotional, subconscious and collective unconscious levels. Regular practice of Yi Ren Qigong helps reduce or eliminate chronic pain, increase internal harmony and lead to self-knowledge, self-healing, self-care, self- realization, self-mastery, and self-fulfillment.
In the first half of this workshop, Yi Ren Qigong founder Dr. Sun will lead attendees in an easy, energizing qigong practice. The exercises can be done standing or seated and loose street clothing is appropriate. Although participation in the rhythmic, gentle movement is encouraged (and actually impart energy to the body), participation is optional. After a short break, Certified Nutritionist Amy Putiri will lead discussion on choosing and preparation of specific foods to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system, creating light food and beverage samples for attendees.
Take advantage of this relaxing yet focused presentation on research-supported movement for pain reduction!

by Dr. Guan-Cheng Sun, PhD
The ability to free your mind from unwanted thoughts is real freedom.
~ Remez Sasson
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward.
~ Patricia Sampson In the view of Yi Ren Qigong, freedom is the liberation of one’s authentic self from both internal and external unhealthy limitations, including thoughts, emotions, consciousness, sub-consciousness, preconceived programs, past memories, etc. In other words, freedom is the way of healthy living in accord with the Dao, the oneness with the source of universal consciousness. Dr. Sun is the executive director of IQ&IM, founder of Yi Ren Qigong and research scientist at Bastyr University. He has been cultivating and refining his Qi with Yi Ren Qigong for over 30 years.
Freedom through Yi Ren Qigong & Taiji
The Dao describes each of us as having the ability to act freely in our lives. Yet internal accumulations and outside stagnations continuously seem to prevent us from reaching that goal. Through Yi Ren Qigong and Taiji, we begin to remove these stagnations and experience freedom in our bodies and our lives. Dan firmly believes that we need physical activity to prevent or even overcome many of the health issues we face as a society today. He aims to teach you how to benefit your body and mind through the therapeutic movements of Taiji, as he has done for himself over the past 9 years. Group Yi Ren Qigong practice led by Ann Moses, certified YRQ instructor & Taiji experience led by Daniel Bertapelle, YRQ teacher in training Community Nourishment prepared by Amy Putiri, MS CN _____________________________________________________________
