It was another wonderful Chinese New Year celebration this year, welcoming the year of the Horse!
We had some great performances by Sunny Tang Martial Arts, Carol C Dance Studio, our own Jessie Zsolt, Los Salsomanos, our own Qigong students, my father Sigong Stanely Ngui, and myself Justin Ngui.
The place was packed and sold-out as per usual.
Great energy filled the banquet hall, coupled by the wafting delicious smells of the 12-course meal that ensued.
We ate, we watched, we laughed and we cheered.
Old aquaintences were re-united and new relationships were forged.
Good times were had by all, and a few lucky people walked out with big prizes from our lucky new year draw!
Everyone received a lucky coin to commemorate the celebration.
Thanks to all for such a great night and warm welcome to the new year!

Increasingly popular in the U.S., qigong (pronounced chee-gong) has been found in recent studies to improve quality of life in cancer patients and fight depression. Other studies have found improvements in balance and blood pressure. But so far, there aren’t enough large, well-designed studies to constitute solid proof of any benefits, scientists say.

This was a wonderful sunny day. The attendance was great: a lot of our students had come, some Sifu James’s students, and even some new people.
During the course of the workshop, the audience was very attentive for the 3 hour period, and a lot of intelligent questions were asked. Seventy five percent of the audience was writing notes.
Every person had an article to be blessed, and I did a mass blessing.
Questions and comments were:
When are we having another seminar?
When next are we having any kind seminar / workshop?
I think we must have a seminar for each season now. It was great to see such interest in Feng Shui and I’m glad all attendees learned some helpful things about how environmental energies can affect your life.
Thanks to all of you.
Day one at the conference… we started with a grea group of people with great energy!
Despite being held up and me showing up a bit later than planned, things went great. We got some energy moving and go to it.
We began by lowering the heart rate and centering the body.
We made a mind-body using intention and movement through pericardium eight aka laogong.
We talked abou how much influence the bodys posture and position can influence the mind.
Using this theory we put it into practice. Soft. Thorough energy.
Afterwards we continued to see workshops on gu sha, laser acupuncture, and scalp acupuncture.
Super informative and super exciting!
