OVERVIEW

Our goal is renew and refresh the material from Qigong Meditation Basics 2  and then to explore methods to awaken the healing light.   We explore a qigong form for healing and more physical body qigong for grounding.  All of these strengthen our physical body, our healing capacity, and open us up to a higher level of conscious awareness.

The theme of this class is:   Awaken the Healing Light + Three Fires and Six Directions Form

After reviewing the basic methods of Qigong Meditation Basics 2  for improving our energy levels through breathing techniques and activating the three fires, we look to awaken the healing light.  This healing light has the ability to heal the body, rejuvenate the brain, and also raise our consciousness to a higher level.  We use this healing light in a variety of ways.  We also learn a powerful healing form, the Three Fires and Six Directions Form.  We also learn new ways to strengthen the physical body and improve our grounding with an some elementary exercises from Iron Shirt Qigong 1.  The Awaken Healing Light material serves as the foundation for later material in Wisdom Qigong and the new grounding exercises serve as the foundation for later material in Iron Shirt Qigong 1, both of which are covered in Qigong Meditation Basics 4 + Iron Shirt Qigong 1 + Wisdom Qigong

ABOUT QIGONG MEDITATION BASICS 3 

We will learn to Awaken the Healing Light and two new fundamental meditations for emotional and spiritual well-being:

  1. Awaken the Healing Light:  gain awareness and capture primordial light, for healing and spiritual awareness

ABOUT STEM CELL QIGONG

Stem Cell Qigong is a qigong for detoxifying the organs.

The organs often acquire many toxins, toxic qi, and sick cells over time. To restore vitality it is useful to detoxify and rejuvenate the cells of the organs. The purpose of Stem Cell Qigong is to flush out the toxins of the organs, to kill any sick cells that are there, and to send activated stem cells to the area to build new fresh healthy cells.

Stem cells are cells that can replace any cell in the body. Thus, when the sick cells die, stem cells will go in and build new fresh healthy cells.  Part of Stem Cell Qigong is the activation of the stem cells with healthy programming, so that they will go in and repair. After doing this, we go organ by organ with a combination of tapping, releasing sick qi with healing sounds, and general detoxification. In doing so, we flush out the toxins, kill the sick cells, and have activated stem cells waiting to go into the area to repair and rejuvenate the organs on a cellular level.

While there are many different components to Stem Cell Qigong, the whole routine can be done in a twenty minute period. It's a great routine to do if one is feeling unwell, is suffering from a chronic disease, or if one simply wants to do periodic routine maintenance to support overall health.

Topics for Stem Cell Qigong:

  • Review of Relevant Material from Craniosacral Qigong
  • Review of Relevant Material from Healing Love 1
  • Kidney Cleaning
  • Five Pulse Suction Breathing
  • Skin Breathing
  • Bone Breathing
  • Bone Spiraling and Bone Compression
  • Stem Cell Activation
  • Organ Detoxification Routine
  • Bone Detox

 

ABOUT FIVE ELEMENT QIGONG

Five Element Qigong is a qigong for tonifying the organ energies.

Topics for Five Element Qigong:

  • Review of Relevant Material from Basics and Wisdom Qigong
  • Connection to Material from Stem Cell Qigong
  • Five Element Qigong Forms: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water
  • Five Element Organ Tonification Routine
  • Five Element Inner Smile

  

Along with the material in this section, we will review some of the meditations and qigong from Healing Love 1

 

In total, I look forward to sharing "Healing Love 2 + Stem Cell Qigong + Five Element Qigong" with you.

This course continues the course material from Qigong Meditation Basics 3.

OVERVIEW

Our goal is renew and refresh the material from Qigong Meditation Basics 3 .  From there, we deepen physical body qigong methods for grounding with Iron Shirt Qigong 1  and we deepen the Awaken Healing Light methods with Wisdom Qigong.  All of these strengthen our physical body, our healing capacity, and open us up to a higher level of conscious awareness.

The theme of this class is:   Advanced Grounding and Healing Light Practices 

After reviewing the basic methods of Qigong Meditation Basics 3  for awakening the healing light, we learn ways to rejuvenate the sense organs with Qi Self-Massage.  We explore ways to strengthen our fascia (connective tissue) with some wonderful rooted practices (Iron Shirt Qigong 1 ), that also help us get more deeply grounded.  We also take the Awaken Healing Light material to a higher-level, by exploring the brain rejuvenation practices of Wisdom Qigong.  All of these practices are expanded on further in the next course Qigong Meditation Basics 5 + Craniosacral Qigong + Intro Healing Love.

 

ABOUT QIGONG MEDITATION BASICS 4

We will learn three new fundamental meditations for emotional and spiritual well-being:

  1. Reverse Wudang Microcosmic Orbit:  alternate wudang microcosmic orbit to sedate the body
  2. Classical Extended Orbit:  grounds and balances upper/lower parts of the body

Along with the material in this section, we will review some of the meditations and qigong from Qigong Meditation Basics 3.

 

ABOUT IRON SHIRT QIGONG 1

Iron Shirt Qigong 1 is a system of standing meditation.

Specifically, it is a set of standing meditation postures designed to help you become more grounded and stable emotionally through your connection to the Earth. Through this deeper level of grounding, you find that over time your ability to remain detached from your emotions will also increase. In this way, you become more stable: rather than being controlled by your emotions, you become more able to detach from them and view them objectively as a witness. Consequently, Iron Shirt 1 becomes the necessary complement to any spiritual work for managing your emotions.

The Iron Shirt 1 postures themselves also serve to strengthen the physical body, which is a necessary tool to ward off the effects of aging. The old masters knew that they could not do their lengthy meditative and spiritual techniques without a strong body to sustain them, and they consequently looked to such methods.

Specifically, the Iron Shirt 1 postures serve to strengthen the body's core. In particular, connective tissue strengthens, blood circulation improves, and general body patterns of tension dissolve. Through the connection to the ground, healing energy from the Earth rises up into your body, and helps to promote both physical and emotional healing.

The focus in Iron Shirt 1 is on body alignment and structure. This not only enhances the grounding effect, but it serves to strengthen the physical body as well. Through this process, you develop an added awareness of your own internal life-force energy (or qi) and are able to supplement that with additional qi rising up into your body from the Earth. By strengthening your fascia (connective tissue), you will be better able to protect your internal organs and keep them healthy. This will in turn help to support the tendons, ligaments, joints, and bones, which are covered more extensively in the higher levels of Iron Shirt.

In total, the techniques taught in Iron Shirt 1 serve as a fundamental building block for a whole program of courses that are designed to build the physical body and continue the pathway of deeper levels of grounding. They form a necessary ingredient for higher levels of Iron Shirt, Tai Chi, and both martial and spiritual arts programs.

At the same time, the physical and emotional grounding that is provided, is a necessary prerequisite for continuing the meditative and spiritual pathway of Taoist meditation and alchemy. It only through becoming more deeply embodied that meditative practices become a whole-body energetic transformative process.

The material for the Iron Shirt 1 section will be:

  • Phoenix  (review from QMB3)
  • Iron Bridge  (review from QMB3)
  • Embracing the Tree  (review from QMB3)
  • Iron Bar
  • Turtle I
