What is Qigong?


Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

Qigong is about finding health, happiness, peace, and ultimately encountering your true nature.

Now, all martial arts, including Dahnmudo & tai chi, can all be considered a form of Qi gong. This is because they are about accumulating and circulating energy, Qi (vital life energy).  Although DMD is Qigong, it also includes dance, healing and martial arts. Dance, martial arts and healing were originally one, in ancient martial art practices. Dahnmudo is about training the fundamentals of these all at once.

Dahnmudo is more than just training physically; it includes evolving from the physical, to the energetic, and from the energetic to the spiritual. I started training in Dahnmudo in 2011, and though I practiced martial arts for many years before this, I have never encountered a martial art like this one. Through this training, I have changed in many ways: my body has become healthier, and mentally I have experienced peace, something that I once only could dream of. I used to be very anxious, easily frustrated and impatient, but now I am much calmer, and free. I can certainly say that my life has changed.

Through Dahnmudo you can recover your health, your self-worth, your self-confidence plus more.


The biggest benefit? You can even attain peace of mind. Through the training principles I was able to even learn about life’s purpose.

Dahnmudo’s fundamental structure lies in one’s state of mind. It is fundamental based on diligence, honesty, and responsibility for one’s health and harmony, and that of others.

Tales of Power and Healing from ChunHwaShimsung


Health > CGI Healthy Event By CGI Holistic Wellness Centre

“If You CHOOSE It, It Will Happen”


-BOS Principle No. 3

January’s ChunHwa Shim Sung workshop was a complete hit! The whole-day training was a testament to the power of choice, as well as the necessity of global citizenship today. In spite of inclement weather conditions the day before and even a ban on ingress/egress in and out of New York City, more than three dozen people came together for a unique opportunity to re-awaken their latent potential and rediscover the strength of their dreams.

Discover Your Life’s Purpose in the Chun Hwa Shim Sung Workshop


Health > CGI Healthy Event By CGI Holistic Wellness Centre

  • Date: Sunday, Jan. 24 from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Location: CGI Wellness Center
  • Cost: $295 (20% off Early Registration by 12/30- $236)
  • Trainer: Master Michelle


What is the purpose of my life?

We’ve all faced this difficult question before. In a world dominated by materialism and superficiality, finding your passion and chasing your dream isn’t always an easy thing to do. Often times we get caught up chasing goals that only bring short-term satisfaction and leave us feeling empty.

So, how can I live a life of meaning and purpose?

There’s only one person that can answer this question. It may not seem like it, but that person is you.

Take a journey of self-exploration and get back in touch with the person you truly are, and the person you’re destined to become. Only by uncovering our true soul’s character can we discover our life’s purpose.

The Principle of Chun Hwa, “Completion of the Soul,” guides you toward a better line of communication with the essence of your soul. The answers to life’s difficult questions will surface. After all, they’ve been inside you all along.

It’s time to discover the incredible power within.

Experience the Principle of Chun Hwa by signing up for a workshop at CGI’s Wellness Center (201-784-1300).

Your soul is waiting.

Love Yourself So Your Partner Can Love You

Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

We spend so much time searching for that special someone: someone to love, someone to cherish, someone to stand by, through the good times and the bad. In our mind it seems simple: meet your soulmate, fall in love, live happily ever after. So why doesn’t it ever all go according to plan?

Love comes naturally, but it doesn’t come easily.

Loving someone means being vulnerable, and opening yourself up to the chance of being hurt. To love means to trust, and to trust can be a very scary thing. But at the end of the day, it’s something we all need to learn how to do.

What makes a relationship work isn’t just the love between two people, but the trust they place in each other.

Let your loved one see the real you.

When it comes to loving someone, all the things we try to hide about ourselves eventually come to light. We all have our flaws, we all make mistakes, and we all do embarrassing things, but there comes a time when we must accept our quirky habits and secret pleasures, and realize that someone who truly loves us will accept them.

Learn to love yourself so others can love you, too.
