Hunyuan Gong Workshop

Instructor: Harrison Moretz

 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.
