Traditional Chinese Qigong: Levels I-V
Eva Wong and Acharya Dale Asrael
July 25–August 2, 2014
Please Note: Levels I-III are led by Dale Asreal and levels IV-V are led by Eva Wong
Cultivate strength of body and calmness of mind through the healing Taoist practice of qigong. This intensive program is a rare opportunity to receive instruction in two unique qigong lineages—the Pre-Celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School. In Level I, we will practice techniques to strengthen the musculoskeletal systems, nourish internal organs, circulate energy, and still the mind. In Level II, we will delve more deeply into postures that cultivate flexibility, strength, and softness in the joints, muscles, and tendons. We will also learn self-massage techniques to support our internal organs and circulate qi, or life energy, through our meridians. In Levels III, IV and V, we will learn animal forms for balance and strength as well as practices for removing blockages. Talks on qigong, Chinese medicine, and Taoism will be included.
