Five Animals and Five Elements Qigong
Nov

to Nov 12

Five Animals and Five Elements Qigong

  • American Institute of Alternative Medicine (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Learn what is possibly the oldest shamanic healing system still in use today—the five animal frolics (wu qin xi) of Dr. Hua Tuo (CE 110-207), often called the “Father of Chinese Medicine”.  I learned the five animal frolics from the renowned qigong teacher Ken Cohen and have been teaching them regularly for the past 6 years. I particularly like the five animals because they combine movement with positive emotional and psychologicalstates through the power of each animal. The crane represents calm, focused, tranquility with a full awareness of one's environment. The bear allows for restoring health and strength both physically and emotionally - it is a symbol for healing in many cultures. The monkey is lively and playful, curious and free - let yourself swing from branch to branch with a release of worry and care.  The deer is dignified, elegant, and cultivates an attitude of self-esteem, beauty, handsomeness, and confidence. The tiger is the king/queen of the wild and fears nothing. Develop your own fearless sense of being on top of the world. What great yet simple tools for personal development!  Additionally, we will learn a set of Five Element qigong exercises that are part of the Zheng Gu Tui Na (medical massage) training curriculum. The five elements or phases - metal, water, wood, fire, and earth correspond to the internal Zang organs - lung, kidney, liver, heart, and spleen.

This class is open to all persons at all levels – from beginners to those looking to improve their practice.

Coiling Silk - The Clouds Should Know Me By Now

Coiling Silk - The Clouds Should Know Me By Now

Start the new year right!  For this one day workshop we will learn a complete set of coiling silk (chan si) qigong exercises to unwind fascia and unravel tension. Apply the three dynamic principles of continuity, circularity, and complementarity (polarity) to your daily life.  This is the foundation of the Cloud Hands movement found in tai chi.

Coiling Silk emphasizes movement that unlocks joints, creates spirals and the circular flow of vital force or qi throughout the entire body. Increase flexibility, agility, concentration, and freedom of movement without pain or strain. Decrease stress, tension, and improve the relaxation response.  

Additionally, we will explore a few mountain Taoist meditations and poetry to help us face the challenge of retreating from the world vs. engaging and changing it.

Balance and Mental Intent – Slow Walking Qigong and the Taiji Form

Balance and Mental Intent – Slow Walking Qigong and the Taiji Form

In this workshop we will use the techniques from Mind-Intent Boxing (yi quan) to develop purposeful awareness of our body movement and balance.  We will be exploring this great system of exercises – they are more accurately described as a way of being in the world – through awareness of energy, direction, pressure, balance, health, power, and so much more.  Learn to walk as softly as a water strider, stand as tall as a redwood tree, and move as fluidly as a kelp forest.  These are the basic walking techniques found in various qigong exercises and will be applied to Lee’s modified yang style taiji form for health.

9:00am 9:00am

Good Vibrations - Meditations, Massage, and Healing Sounds

One of the key principles of qigong exercises is translated as “three tunings” - body, breath, and mind (or heart). In this workshop we will explore fine tuning ourselves through using the six healing sound method (liu zi jue 六字訣)) to breathe life force into and toxic energy out of the major organ systems and energy paths of the body. We will combine the healing sound method with an introduction to zang fu 脏腑 vibrating palm/organ regulating massage techniques.   Additionally we will explore several unique meditation practices using these healing sounds/vibrations and visualizations of color and light.
