Traditional Chinese Qigong: Animal Forms with Eva Wong

Eva Wong

June 4–5, 2011

Tuition $160 + 1 night

The ancient Chinese shamans were the first to practice the art of “becoming” an animal to embody the power of that animal. Taoist practitioners further developed the techniques of embodying animal energy as a means of enhancing health and longevity. During this training, we will learn to embody the form and essences of the animals through Hua Tu’s Animal Forms—the Wudang Five Animal Forms—and selected forms from the 12 devas. We will also be introduced to a new Wudang Shan form, the Combined Five Animals. By the end of the workshop, we will have the skills to embody the essence of the bones of the tiger, the tendons of the leopard, the spine of the snake and the dragon, the ligaments of the monkey, the stamina of the bear, the generative energy of the deer, and the vital energy of the crane.

This program is a prerequisite for three other intensives (Breath Regulation, Standing Qigong, Wudangshan Animals Long Form) and Traditional Chinese Qigong Level VI.

Prerequisite: Traditional Chinese Qigong Levels I – V
