Medical Qigong is a healing system based on the philosophy of Chinese Medicine, an ancient wisdom of observing the law of nature. The practice will guide you to basic understandings of the human mechanism to diagnose the habitual patterns in your physical and mental body, individual conditions towards a state of optimal balance and the causes of your discomfort and disorders. It will inspire and support you to take responsibility in your health and wellness in daily life through personal practices.

Sejin is interested in the wisdom of body and its movement reflecting life. She practices Qigong, DANCEmandala, and Contact Improvisation Dance as the main tools for her personal research and sharing with others to encourage them to get connected to their own wisdom and strength within. Her mother introduced her to the practice of body, meditation, and movement in South Korea when she was a child and she was reconnected to these insights and the meaning of them through her own embodied practice in Chiang Mai, Thailand after many years.
