“No matter what the circumstances, no matter what kind of tragedy I am facing. I practice compassion. This gives me inner strength and happiness…I myself, you see, am the devoted servant of compassion. This is the way I really feel.” – The Dalai Lama(1)

A strategic Maung with Aungretreat will often prove itself to be surprisingly necessary in the face of adversity. It provides us with an opportunity to re-group and gather our strength, while our health and well-being will also benefit from its employment. It also provides us with the ability to counter and overcome stress, as stress (distress) is one of the worst health epidemics known. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), stress is considered a major external/internal pathogen. In Western biomedicine, stress tends to be viewed as the primary factor behind psychosomatic disorders.

Healing Calligraphy: Dr. Steven Aung

The action of the brush revitalizes our body, mind and spirit, expressing the inner awareness of universal peace and harmony.

– Steven K.H. Aung, M.D.

Dr.-Aung-doing-calligraphyMedical Calligraphy is part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine curriculum. The many styles of calligraphy express an artist’s character, spirit & creativity, and serves as an intellectual way to cultivate oneself and exchange blessings with others and the environment.

The initiation of calligraphy starts in the brain, with the transfer of good intention and spirit from the heart. The movement of Qi utilizes the body and hand (acupoint PC 8), ending at the tip of the middle finger (acupoint PC 9) before transferring to the brush. With a kiss of the brush and paper, the Qi is transferred from the ink to the surface of the paper. The paper serves as a medium to reflect the active spirit, intention, blessing and Qi of the calligrapher.

The five traditional treasures necessary to perform calligraphy involve the brush, rice paper, ink slab, ink stick, and stone seal(s).

Use a Qi Gong approach to calligraphy to produce healing energy— for yourself and for those who appreciate your creations.  Join Dr. Aung at Hollyhock on Cortes Island, June 20-23, 2013 for Healing Calligraphy.
