Qigong for Burnout | Recovery Phase – Lesson Four
Burnout recovery qigong helps you reclaim a sense of calm. James Saper’s main idea of Lesson four is the idea of not doing. The Chinese phrase is wu wei, without action. When you’re doing the qigong meditations, you’re mostly sitting there, with gentle arm movements. This idea is important for stabilizing post burnout, which happens when you’re doing too much.
Not doing is a shift from action to sensing. You need to start from where you really are. By turning the intent inwards is the start of this process. There is something be gained by doing less but sensing more. It is only by developing a greater degree of sensitivity to where you can be grown and cultivate that you can move forward.
