Making Calmness a Way of Life, Not a Mistake - The nature of practice
March 27, 2017
Hosted by Jackie Blunt, Kathy Fogarty and Bill McMillan
Three Ren Xue teachers talk about how their practice has changed their lives. Shona and Nick give us insights into increasing clarity and creativity of mind, even as we get older, how to have the energy we need, and the delight of sharing a relationship in which both people are bringing love, openness and clarity. They talk openly about conflict, and how they step lightly and create growth and strength out of these opportunities. Natalie talks about the importance of the good state and how to extend it from the practice to everyday life. She describes how this changes her relationships with her family and friends who visit. She talks about the journey from depletion to abundance, from being a busy young mother and feeling her energy going out all the time, to learning how to gather Qi and developing an internal focus of mind, so that there is plenty of energy and Qi available in every moment. And when she forgets, she has tools at hand to bring her back to herself.

Chaos to Calm is a show about learning to live in a calm, relaxed and natural state, better able to deal with the challenges of daily life. We’ll introduce you to Ren Xue, a comprehensive path to wellbeing developed by Yuan Tze. Its primary tool is Yuan Gong, an innovative form of Qigong, which is gentle exercise and meditation that integrates movement, posture, breathing, energy and awareness. Ren Xue combines work on the body and energy, or Qi, with work on the mind and heart. The practices are enjoyable and easy to learn and have improved the health and wellbeing of people all over the world.
You’ll meet some of the people whose lives have been turned around by Ren Xue, people recovering from physical illness, or who have repaired their relationships, or who have found a deeper meaning through their Ren Xue practice. You’ll get insights into the theory and practical aspects of how the mind, body and Qi can work together to bring about real change.

The three of us are very different and, although we all have professional careers (Kathy as a Naturopath, Jackie as an M.D., Bill as a Marriage and Family Therapist), our real expertise is simply as human beings whose lives have been immeasurably improved by Ren Xue.
For us, and many others, Ren Xue has been a path to a more meaningful life, greater health and happiness and an enhanced sense of harmony and wellbeing. Along the way, physical ailments have disappeared or greatly improved, and our relationships with others have changed.
So, through this show, we want to share with you our experiences, and those of others, to introduce you to Ren Xue, the theories supporting it and the practical aspects to getting started.
