We just started summer classes at Brookline Tai Chi this week, which means new students are coming in for the first time and experienced students are coming back after a break.

That means there are lots of good questions floating around about getting started, making progress, and the frustrations you encounter along the way.

In this episode of Qigong Radio, I hope to address some of those concerns.

Specifically, I discuss:

  • What do you think is the ultimate goal of your practice, anyway?
  • Do you have a "listening" practice in your current routine?
  • Where is the gel point in your daily practice?

What do we mean when we say we "put our mind inside our body" when we meditate, do qigong, or Tai Chi?

Dr. Cathy Kerr helps us understand this question from the perspective of modern neuroscience. In addition to being a Tai Chi practitioner, Cathy is the Director of Translational Neuroscience at Contemplative Studies Initiative and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at Brown University.

Drawing on a growing body of research from mindfulness meditation, her own work on sensory processes, and ancient texts, Cathy explains these Eastern practices develop your Western brain in areas that span physical health as well as mental and emotional well-being.
