Qi Gong Level 3

With Sophie Léger

January 31 - February 2, 2020

The Daoist Qigong practices brought to us by Dr. Eva Wong constitute a path of training that cultivates a healthy body, a clear mind and an open heart. Ultimately, it dissolves the split between mind and body to allow us to live a fully engaged and creative life.
In Level 3, the internal energy aspects of the exercises and their healing properties become more salient and explicit.
During this weekend program, the students will learn the Hua Tu’s Five Animal Form, which develop tendon and bone strength, help preserve generative energy, and increase agility and balance. This unique set of animal forms was developed by the legendary Han Dynasty physician Hua Tu. Also taught are the first part of the Immortals’ Guide to Self-massage and Breath
Regulation, and Chen Xiyi‘s Red Phoenix Calisthenics. These systems combine gentle breath regulation with simple movements and self-massage to open blockages in the meridians, align the spinal column for better circulation of qi, and enhance tendon, bone, organ and muscular strength. Lastly, four more standing qigong postures from Wang Xiangzhai’s Yiquan
System are also presented. Prerequisites Taoist Qigong Level 1-2, as taught by the lineage transmitted by Dr. Eva Wong.

Everyone who has taken Levels 1-2 is encouraged to come to Level 3. This includes those who have been doing little, or even none, of the earlier Qigong practices. The Qigong path is not strictly linear, and it is not to have achieved some mastery of Level 1-2 to move on to Level 3.
