MMQG Course in Nuremberg

You can join the course at any time, simply joining one of the practice classes.

MMQG is MeditationMindfulness, and Qi Gong and is a highly effective tool to get rid of stress, anxiety, self-sabotaging habits and to start achieving a healthier, wealthier, and happier personal and professional life.

MMQG is a set of exercises put together by Raffaello Palandri, an Italian happiness coach now living in Germany, in more than 25 years of practice and study.

Happiness is a habit you can learn, develop, and use.

Why I am a happiness coach

They ask me why am I a happiness coach, and how meditation, mindfulness, Qi Gong are related to this.

Well, life is not easy, neither is fair.

Yet I am grateful.

Why again?

I am an introvert. I am not the one who will come at meetings, events, shows, parties, dinners out. And not because I don’t like you. But because I am not comfortable with being where I cannot have my time to think, to be alone.

Yet, if you ask me if I like to be on stage and speak in front of a lot of people, well, I love it!And I love being with people teaching and sharing ideas. Probably not at night, or late afternoon, as I am an early morning animal.

I wake up really early in the morning and I am alive until 7pm maximum. After that time I am sleepy and tired. Very often, you will never convince me to get out in the afternoon, if it’s not for teaching or speaking.

Then, you asked about meditation and mindfulness. I practice them since when I was 14. It was hard at the beginning, it took a lot before I could even calm myself. Even more, before I started understanding myself better. But, every single minute I spent meditating or practicing mindfulness has helped me accepting all the times I screwed up my life.
And yes, it happened more than some time.

And then Qi Gong, that is just the tip of the iceberg of my lifelong martial arts learning, practicing, and teaching (!)

Teaching! Did I tell you I love it?

Yes, because very very often the ones I taught to come out to become way better than me, and I LOVE it!

Qi Gong.
Martial arts.

Things that let me grew up, thanks to my teachers (teachers, again!)

So, meditation, mindfulness, and Qi Gong (I call them MMQG) have saved me from banging my head on a wall during a lifetime.They gave me more than I gave them, for sure. They allowed me to be happy for being alive, with all my allergies, with all my defects, with all my mistakes.

That’s why I am grateful.

And that’s why I am a happiness coach, too.

I want to help you become better than how you are now, I want to help you avoid some of the mistakes I painfully did. I want you to become better than me at being happy.

That’s why I teach MMQG and I coach at Yourself, Understood.

MMQG Syllabus – Part 1

MMQG is MeditationMindfulness, and Qi Gong.

In our courses, we explore these 3 practices from different points of view, mixing tradition with innovation and allowing everyone to start getting benefits since the very first hours of lesson.

In this post, we will see the first part of the MMQG Syllabus, the one regarding Qi Gong.

Qi Gong is essentially divided in 5 main schools:

Chinese Medical Qi Gong
Daoist Qi Gong
Buddhist Qi Gong
Confucian Qi Gong
Wu Shu / Kung Fu Qi Gong

and 5 main categories:

Health Qi Gong
Medical Qi Gong
Life Improving Qi Gong
Physical conditioning Qi Gong
Meditative Qi Gong

In 2003, the Chinese Health Qigong Association officially recognized four health qigong forms:

Ba Duan Jin (八段錦 – Eight Pieces of Brocade)
Yì Jīn Jīng (易筋經 – Muscle-Tendon Change Classic)
Wu Qin Xi ( 五禽戲 – Five Animals)
Liu Zi Jue (六字訣 – Six Healing Sounds)

And, just 7 years later, 5 additional forms were added to the official syllabus:

Tai Chi Yang Sheng Zhang (太極養生杖 – Tai Chi Stick Health Preservation Routine)
Shi Er Duan Jin (十二段錦 – 12 Pieces of Brocade Sitting Qi Gong)
Daoyin Yang Sheng Gong Shi Er Fa (導引養生功十二法 – 12 routines from Daoyin tradition)
Mawangdui Daoyin (馬王堆導引术 – Mawangdui Silk Paintings Qi Gong )
Da Wu (大舞 – Big Dance)

In MMQG we practice all the 9 official forms plus the Xi Sui Jing, and the Shibashi so:

  • Ba Duan Jin 
  • Yì Jīn Jīng
  • Xi Sui Jing
  • Wu Qin Xi 
  • Liu Zi Jue 
  • Chi Yang Sheng Zhang 
  • Shi Er Duan Jin 
  • Daoyin Yang Sheng Gong Shi Er Fa 
  • Mawangdui Daoyin 
  • Da Wu 
  • Shibashi

Our practice focuses on Health and Meditation Qi Gong, mixing elements from Daoist, Chinese Medical, and Wu Shu traditions.

During the course we introduce and study the needed elements from TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Tui Na (Chinese Massage), Tai Chi ChuanWu ShuChinese PhilosophyBuddhismDaoismYoga just to name some.

So, what is a Qi Gong class (in presence or – soon- online) about?

We practice the selected exercise, repeating it and analysing its postures, breathing method, and movements.

We study and apply basic Qi Gong concepts like:

  • Stances
  • Movements
  • Breathing Techniques
  • Feeling Qi
  • Moving Qi
  • Grounding
  • Use of energy channels
  • Meditations

We also approach Qi Gong History, Theory, Philosophy and show correlations between the methods we study and other approaches in Eastern and Western culture and medicine.

The goal is to develop a healthier, wealthier, and happier life by starting to notice and apply awareness, compassion, and commitment.
The benefits of the practice are an increased relaxation, a better stance, an improved balance that will allow the practitioner to get rid of stress, anxiety, and fears so to stop self-sabotaging habits and behaviours.

Happiness in the Park – End of Summer Report

Some hard data about this 2019 Summer of Happiness in the Park.

It was a success!!

We met 13 times, practicing MMQG (Meditation, Mindfulness, and Qi Gong) for 26 hours (for free!).

We had more than 65 different people attending the meetings, and we have more than 300 people who are signed on our Meetup, Nebenan, and Facebook groups.

It has been an amazing experience, meeting so many people, sharing the idea that Happiness is not just an empty word, but can be learned, developed, and used, as a habit.

As a happiness coach, I am proud of all of you, who came, tried, shared a little part of your life journey with me. If I managed to let you have at least 2 hours of a healthier, wealthier (in the sense you prefer material or spiritual), happier life, I will have reached my goal.

Thank you!

PS: It’s not the end! We will start meeting at Sushumnā Healing Space from the next Sunday. How do you like the name … Happiness in the Studio?
