Traditional Chinese Qigong: Level IV in Denver, CO with Eva Wong

Eva Wong

August 15–17, 2010

Tuition $175 + 2 nights

Cultivate strength of body and calmness of mind through the healing Taoist practice of qigong. Take this rare opportunity to receive instruction in two unique lineages, The Pre-celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School, neither of which have previously been fully transmitted to students in the West. Xiantianwujimen was founded in the Song dynasty (circa 10th to 12th centuries) by Taoist sage Chen Xiyi, who is recognized as “the father of qigong.” This lineage specializes in using qigong techniques to build the foundation for sitting meditation. The Yiquan School was founded by Wang Xiangzhai in the early 20th century. Yiquan is most well-known for its standing qigong postures called Zhangzhuan, which are designed to still the mind while simultaneously gathering and circulating internal energy.

In Level IV we will receive training in the following rare practices.

Immortals’ Guide to Self-Massage & Breath Regulation, Part II, and Chen Xiyi’s Red Phoenix Calistenics, Part II: Practices for removing blockages in the meridians; aligning the spinal column for optimal circulation of qi; and strengthening tendons, bones and muscles.

Tiger and Dragon Postures from Wudang Shan’s Five Internal Animals Training: The Tiger form builds bone strength, and the Dragon form trains the union of spirit and body. In addition, by immersing themselves in the spirit of these animals, we eventually come to embody the patience of the crouching tiger stalking its prey and the playfulness of the dragon frolicking in the sky.

Zhangzhuan (Standing Qigong): The last two postures from this series.

Prerequisite: Traditional Chinese Qigong: Level III.

Required Reading: Holding Yin, Embracing Yang: Three Taoist Classics on Meditation, Breath Regulation, Sexual Yoga, and the Circulation of Internal Energy translated by Eva Wong

Note: Students are not authorized to teach these Xiantianwujimen and Yiquan School forms without instructor permission.

Eva Wong, author and translator of 13 books on the Taoist arts of health, meditation, and qigong, is the 19th generation lineage carrier of Xiantianwujimen Taoism (Pre-celestial Limitless Gate School of Taoism) and 3rd-generation student of Wang Xiangzhai, founder of Yiquan martial arts and Zhangzhuan (standing qigong).
