What is Qi Gong

I am often asked what is the difference between QiGong and Tai Chi? 

It is kind of like asking what is the difference between the sun and the moon.

QiGong is the energy or qi within Tai Chi and Tai Chi is Qi Gong in motion.

Qi Gong should be present in Tai Chi - if it isn't then it is merely exercise - going through the motions. 

The benefits of Tai Chi are only manifest or apparent when the qi is present.

Qi Gong and Feng Shui

How does a knowledge of Qi Gong inform Feng Shui - well it is the analysis of subtle energies. You can either go to a site and analyse it with a simple formula or you can go to a site and analyse it with your super-sensitive instrument - the human body.

If we as practitioners are not aware of our own internal qi system then we will struggle to differentiate between the environmental qi and our qi - this means our analysis is prone to or vulnerable to personal interpretation and bias.

We reject what we should embrace and embrace what should be rejected.

So how to discriminate - how to examine the unseen universe.

Practice daily internal qi discipline - either; tai chi, qi gong, or  yoga

When you practice qi control, (directing of qi) then you will be able to discriminate very well by monitoring your own internal environment. In addition to Qi Gong there are mindfulness meditation practices that enable us to discriminate very well what is internal and what is external - what is ours and what belongs to not me.

A clue to what is going on is your internal responses - if they are active then you or the environment is producing something. If you have a practice that helps with that discrimination then you are able to help the clients - if not you are hindering and should be more clear about your own energy system.

Simple Qi Gong

A simple Qi Gong practice will help with that differentiation.

Stand with your feet hip width apart.

Feet parallel to each other and aligned on the same plane as each other.

Put the tongue at back of the teeth where the hard palate meets the back of the teeth - pressure is light.

Close the eyes approximately 80%.

Take your attention to your breath at Dantien (the area around your umbilicus or navel) and breath naturally - not controlled in any way.

Now relax your butt muscles, so that you appear to be about to sit down - your knees should not be deeply bent. 

Continue to focus your attention on your breath, watching the abdomen rise and fall rhythmically.

Continue to focus on the abdomen, with the hands hanging loosely at your sides - not swinging.

Take your attention to the navel and watch the belly rise or expand outwards with your in breath and sink backwards towards the spine with your out breath.

Practice this 5 minutes twice a day for a week then go on to stage 2.

If you would like to teach yourself more Qi Gong practices then I recommend this website - Spring Forest Qi Gong.

If you want to go to YouTube I have put selected video's into a play list.

Appin Hall Children’s Foundation is delighted with the service provided by Feng Shui consultant Vicki Sauvage – who has undertaken extensive Feng Shui work toward specific energies that relate to our building development program.

Ronnie Burns | President Appin Hall Children's Foundation

Vicki‘s talents and expertise exceed the spectrum of Feng Shui applications, because she is highly skilled and attuned to Earth energies - and to the vital living library: Nature.

| Ronnie Burns Appin Hall Foundation |

A special sensitivity and perception is required to deliver direct input for clients, in regard to the principles of energy (the field of existence) and Metaphysical considerations, that enable Vicki to offer extensive work beyond the perimeters of basic Feng Shui practise. Vicki applications are backed by years of knowledge and field work which result in practical and functional ways to apply and understand the benefits of her methods and expertise. She completes her analysis with a comprehensive verbal report - along with sketches of her findings. In this way, Vicki’s corporate and private sector clients achieve best results long after Vicki leaves your home, property, or boardroom.

| Ronnie Burns Founder Appin Hall Childrens Foundation

It is with high regard and respect that I recommend Vicki Sauvage as a clever , intuitive and indeed thorough Feng Shui consultant and facilitator. This is only the beginning!

Feng Shui is truly an art of healing, not only for our home and work environment; but understanding the key of energy flow allows us to balance energy in many aspects of our lives.

Vicki came to Feng Shui my house and made some immediate observations and suggestions such as inverting where my young son put his head in the bed as it was actually on the wall with the main electrical power board. 

Clotilde Blanchet - OnLIne Discovery

Vick's feng shui advice has changed my life, my home, my world.  Simple easy and Energy Changing to the positive.  I highly recommend her wonderful gifts she brings into your life and home.

Belinda Wardlaw

One of the major problems she identified was that the front door was in direct line of the back windows of the garden - letting money flow out of the house. 

Clotilde Blanchet -OnLine Discovery

Vicki’s knowledge and experience of feng shui and business management in general was invaluable to us and we felt very confident in following her suggestions and advice.

Four days after you came to help us with the clearing, Peter gave up smoking without a single emotional out burst. Simply amazing.

The crème de la crème of our interior design are the four large banners hanging throughout the centre that were designed by Vicki - they are absolutely fabulous... a must see.

Mark & Lyn Hudson TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

I have used Vicki’s expertise with Feng Shui in my last 3 houses to assist with the challenges that presented at the time and it was amazing how sometimes seemingly small changes within your environment can have a significant impact.

PF Geelong - Vic

Vicki's approach to Feng Shui has intrigued and supported me and my family for many years. From simple positional/shape changes to complex "remedies" our home's chi flows better with Vicki's Feng Shui advice.

Michael Roberts Managing Director

With Vicki’s guidance we have created a long term plan for the development of the clinic and how it will look, from details as small as where shelves should go to the larger plan for the front of the building.

Mark & Lyn Hudson TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

I found Vicki's mindfulness meditation course extremely worthwhile. 

When I practise I am calm, more organised and and I am able to prioritise more effectively- this is really important in my role as a nurse - If I do not look after myself I can't spend all day caring for others.It is said that meditation is like 'putting your oxygen mask on first before assisting others'- it is so true! 

Vicki is a great mindfulness teacher.

I highly recommend this tool to anyone who is faced with making important decisions, wanting to build relationships or needing to persuade family,  loved ones, influential clients/stakeholders to look at things differently and increase acceptance of alternate ideas/views.

Kathy B - Hobart

My latest challenge was attracting someone to share my life with. I have always believed in the Law of Attraction” so I knew I needed to change.  I had already made many personal growth changes however the shift still had not happened, so I called my friend.  After making only a few of the recommended changes Vicki suggested in my current residence my energy and life has been opened and I am now blessed with a new relationship.

PF Geelong - Vic

Your work makes such a positive change in people's lives, you have a great job!

I have known Vicki for many years and have been blessed with her friendship and professional assistance when faced with several challenges in my life.

PF Geelong - Vic

Vicki came to our home and very successfully removed some very old energy that was impacting on our ability to move forward

DebraQuatararo - Doodlefish.com.au

She reset the corner boundaries of the property and cleared the flow of energy. Within a month of that work I was able to leave a job of 18 years and launch my business 

Debra Quatararro - Doodlefish.com.au

We moved our Naturopathic clinic on a shoestring budget and Vicki was able to assist us in clinic design that would look and feel great as well as be affordable.

Lynn & Mark Hudson - TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

She gave us suggestions for placing of plants and furniture to block the outward flow of money but a month later we decided to actually alter the back of the house, moving window and doors to give a different access to the garden.  Since then I started working part time for an employer whilst still maintaining my own business and I've found that for the first time in quite a while I have money in my account that stays there, referrals and new clients that are bigger and have good cash flow. Money does not seem to leak out as much and life is looking up.  

Clotilde Blanchet - OnLIne Discovery

I practiseTai chi with Vicki and combining both Mindfulness Meditation and Tai Chi is a natural fit and has helped me recover from a significant back injury and the stress and anxiety that comes along with pain.

Sandy Roberts

The energy in the shop is just amazing. it is so peaceful but energised. People are definitely affected by the space in a very positive way.

Kara B - Copping - Tasmania

Vicki was always available for us and her insights and experience added pizazz and harmony to the project

Susan Peden and John Correy, Snug

The more I read about Feng Shui, the more I realised I didn't know, so doing her workshop enabled me to understand enough to use the principles in my life.
