December 7th 9:30am – 3:30pm

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.
