Gathering the Stars: A response

“Moving the Stars and Turning the Big Dipper”, a digital construction

In my Qigong class, we learned a couple of movements called “Moving the Stars” and “Turning the Big Dipper”. The names describe, in metaphor, the action of gathering vital energy (qi or chi) from the environment and drawing into the body. We were asked to imagine actually scooping stars into the hands as we did the movements. I thought it was such a cool image that I created this.

    • Thanks, Vi. Qigong (also spelled “chi kung”) is a series of slow, graceful exercises designed to cultivate and circulate vital energy in and through the body with the goal of optimizing one’s health.
