Eight sections of brocade is a traditional qigong set practiced by Taoists and martial artists

 This qigong set is an excellent exercise for promoting health.

A somewhat rigorous method, it is especially good at developing proper postural relationships and increasing strength.

Over time the set has developed many variations. The method that will be presented in this workshop is effective and comprehensive, incorporating layers of practice from the physically direct to the energetically subtle.

This workshop is suitable for practitioners of any level.

 

Hunyuan Gong Workshop

Instructor: Harrison Moretz

September 3rd 9:30 – Noon

 We will explore the principles and theory of the Hun Yuan Gong set.

Detailed instruction will be given breaking down the body mechanics of the movement, use of intent, and methods to make the practice more efficacious.

 Hun Yuan Gong is the most important of the Qigong methods in the Hun Yuan system. This method gathers Qi from the environment and uses it to augment our prenatal Qi (our genetic inheritance).

To this end, the methods open the Qi-channels of the body and establish the Danqiao or Dantian, the energetic openings in the body where the qi, essence and spirit are cultivated.

Hun Yuan Gong promotes health, prolongs life, deepens stillness, and increases internal strength.

Snake & Turtle IntensiveInstructor Shoko Zama

September 17th 9:30am – 3:30 pm

The snake is known for its cultivation of qi and the turtle for its longevity.

This set is based on the movements and breathing of the snake and turtle. By imitating the slow long breathing of the turtle, and the flexibility of the snake, people can live long and well. This set is an especially good practice during the winter season.
