The Healing Mind
Meditation in Motion...

You’ve seen them, groups of practitioners in your local park, and were fascinated by the beauty of their elegant, slow and graceful movements – performed in near perfect unison. But, did you know that you were watching a martial arts form that is also a meditation, a form of therapy for the mind and body?

Tai Chi and Qi gong are centuries old martial art forms. Documentary short The Healing Mind – Meditation in Motion (a production of Vital Ingredients Pictures and Blue Umbrella Entertainment), explores how the practice of these ancient forms of movement with their focus on mindfulness are helping seriously ill patients, with particular benefit for many of the side effects associated with Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and Cancer treatments.

Now, western medicine is catching on to the lasting benefits of patients who choose Tai Chi and Qi Gong as an integral part of their therapy plans.  Check our the trailer below.
