“There is the music of heaven in all things. Every element has a sound, an original sound from the order of God.” (Hildegard von Bingen)
In Eastern Orthodox Christianity, we say that the Divine Essence is unknowable, but we know God by the Divine Energies that permeate everything. This is the energy that the Star Wars films called The Force, and the Chinese call Qi (pronounced chee). Learn how to tap into this energy for health, wholeness and spiritual growth through Six Healing Sounds Qigong, a powerful system of energy cultivation exercises from China and one of the most clinically tested and effective qigong methods. Six Healing Sounds Qigong uses vocal sounds along with gentle movements to cause internal vibrations that cleanse, recharge and balance the life energy producing a feeling of calm, tranquility, and spiritual unity.
Friday: Introduction session and free evening
Saturday: Full day retreat
Sunday: Review of the qigong form (exercises); celebration of the Holy Eucharist with readings and prayers aligned with the retreat. Holy Communion is open to all who wish to participate.
Rev. Yanchy Lacska PhD
I am an Orthodox-Catholic priest as well as an ordained interfaith minister. I have been a hospital chaplain, psychologist, and a college professor and have studied qigong for over thirty years. I am mostly retired, but still see a few people as a pastoral counselor (combining Jungian oriented counseling, qigong, and spiritual companionship), facilitate a cancer support group at Woodwinds Hospital (now via Zoom), and am occasionally asked to be a guest homilist.
