The Symposium:

From ancient traditions and knowledge, through a modern science, the importance of cultivating oneself and one's own nature to live better in the modern world.

Knowing, cultivating and being able to guide one's vital energy through the conscious use of body, breathing and mind, this is the basis of Qi Gong teaching, with the aim of improving physical health and inner wellbeing.

According to the philosophical theories at the heart of Qi Gong, the individual is the microcosm and the world around is the macrocosm. Putting yourself back at the centre of your own life means to work, besides for yourself, for a better world, made up of conscious and healthy people, who are genuinely respectful and part of the Natural Law, the Dao.

Goals of the Symposium:

* Introduce Qigong, its theoretical principles, the ancient philosophy behind the practice and its applications over time, giving to the participants a panorama of the vast art and science fields of Qigong, which is at the heart of classical Chinese medicine.

* Enable all those interested in health and energy disciplines to meet the top experts, researchers and leaders around the world in the Qigong field, and to propose possible projects dedicated to individual wellness and health through their experience in other countries.

* Compare experience and knowledge through presentations, reports on projects underway, practical demonstrations and scientific studies.

* Collect new ideas and plans, proposals and requests by interested parties, in order to develop future projects focused on diverse fields of application, in collaboration and cooperation with other organizations and sectors, always dedicated to wellness, health and inner growth.
