Cultivate strength of body and calmness of mind through the healing Taoist practice of qigong. This intensive 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. Self massage techniques to support our internal organs and circulate qi, or life energy, through our meridians will also be shared. In Level III we will learn animal forms for balance and strength as well as practices for removing blockages in the meridians and circulating qi. Talks on qigong, Chinese medicine and Taoism will be included.

Levels I-II must be taken together. Levels III may be taken separately, but sequentially.

A more detailed schedule will be emailed after registration. There will be breaks for lunch and dinner (on Saturday evening).
Please note that the Friday Night talk is required to take the level. Eva will begin promptly at 7:30, so please be in your place early.
