Taught by Steven Sy, ONLINE using Zoom Platform
2 days: Sat-Sun Feb 27-28, 2021
Each day runs from 9:30am - 12:30pm and 2:00pm - 4:30pm (EASTERN STANDARD TIME -- [UTC-5 ] )
No previous background in qigong or qigong meditation required.
This is an independent course to the main qigong meditation line.
The purpose of this course is to explore techniques for improving one's physical health and emotional health.
The main tool used for this in this class will be the Primordial Qigong form.
Primordial Qigong is a short qigong form that opens your heart center and accelerates spiritual development.
ABOUT PRIMORDIAL QIGONG
Primordial Qigong is attributed historically to Zhang Sanfeng, a legendary figure of the 14th century who has been attributed to being the originator of Tai Chi and many other disciplines. However, unlike Tai Chi which was originally designed for martial arts, this form was created for its spiritual power. It was kept private over the generations and was only revealed recently in the modern era.
Practically speaking, Primordial Qigong is a fun 10-minute qigong form. However, this form is more than just fun. Without being too dramatic, I dare say that this is one of the most important qigong forms you will ever learn. It is extremely powerful and it is one of the few forms that I myself practice almost every day. Yes, it is just that good!
For starters, Primordial Qigong opens up your heart center more effectively than any other qigong form I've encountered. Consequently this form can be viewed as a physical qigong version of the Inner Smile. If it were "only" that, it would already be outstanding, but that is just the beginning to the power behind this form.
Also called Wuji Gong, Primordial Qigong has relaxed, flowing, and spiraling movements. Through a sequence of counter-clockwise turns, you turn into a deeper dimension of yourself and into the Primordial . . . the Wuji, the supreme mystery. The movements themselves gather energy from the cardinal directions and bring that into your being, like a vortex. The movements are so powerful that they help accelerate your spiritual evolution. You don't need to sit and meditate to expand your consciousness to higher levels; you just need to do this form, and the form does all the work for you, effortlessly.
Primordial Qigong has a continuous sequence of counterclockwise movements that generate an overall clockwise pattern, which reflects the evolution in time of your own spiritual development. This pattern of counterclockwise turning that is embedded inside of a larger clockwise pattern creates a spiritual friction that amplifies the power of the form.
There are a lot of esoteric ingredients built into the form (some of which are discussed in the class), but you don't need to know them on a mental level for them to work. All you need to do is to do the movements--to do the form--and your heart and spirit open up deeper as a result.
In total, Primordial Qigong is a true gem.
I look forward to sharing "Primordial Qigong" with you.
