Awakening the Soul Qigong
is a form that is done seated &/or standing.

Dancing Peacock Paradise

Through the practice of Awakening the Soul, you may experience the opening of the heart, the freshness of returning to the beginning, and the simplicity of once again becoming one with nature and the universe. Then, all can experience true love, understand life, and enjoy life fully - body and soul.

Lyrics

Blessed always, Blessed always
For the love of God Surrounds us
Let our joy be so triumphant
That we rest in God
And say Amen


Be nice to camels They are really neat.
Be nice to camels, "Cause they have big feet.
Walking together In a caravan
Living together Standing in the sand.

Mohammed loves camels, Feeds them every day
He rides his camels To places fare away.
At night in the desert, They will keep him warm.
Lying together, Sheltered from the storm.

Camels come in sizes, One hump or two
Walking through t the desert, They will carry you.
On long legs they travel, Walking in the sun
Swaying together Moving Toward the One.

Be nice to camels They are really neat.
Be nice to camels, Cause they have big feet.
On long legs they travel, Walking in the sun
Swaying together Moving Toward the One.

Only Love is Flowing here Only Love is Flowing here
Only Love is Flowing here Only Love is Flowing here
