Zhong Yuan Qigong ~ Level 1 Big Tree 大樹功
Do you love Trees? Trees are AMAZING! Not only are they one of the most powerful solutions for the climate crisis in sequestering carbon and restoring our Earth, they are also harbors of Peace, Wisdom, Strength, Stillness, Vitality and Longevity. And they are Givers of Life. Their forests create magical living landscapes home to diverse plants, insects, fungi, animals, birds, and they are wellsprings of Wonder, respite, rejuvenation, Enchantment, and the Sacred Mystery of Life.
Trees are some of our Earth’s original Qigong Grandmasters. They naturally gather immense amounts of Qi from the Earth and Sky. Gathering the cool Yin energy of the Earth, they raise it up to share with the sparkling stars and Cosmos. And gathering the bright Yang energy from the Sky, they draw it down from their branches and share it with the cool moist Earth.
This 4-week session focuses on one of the main Qigong practices found in all 4 levels of Zhong Yuan Qigong. Big Tree is one of the most powerful exercises to gather large amounts of Qi from the Earth and Sky, and we do this by learning from our Trees themselves. It is pure Magic!
No previous qigong experience is necessary. Beginners and returning students are welcome!
Background on Qigong
Qigong (pronounced “chee-gung”) is an ancient and evolving Chinese system of breath, meditation and movement. It is comprised of simple, yet powerful exercises that cleanse and develop our physical, energetic and spiritual anatomies. Born from observing the vitality, harmony, power, wildness and cycles of nature, qigong gives us tools to receive from nature and cultivate these qualities in ourselves. The practice of qigong opens a pathway of adventure, self development and discovery in both our inner and outer wilderness, and leads to lifetime of vitality and wellbeing.
The Zhong Yuan (ZY) Qigong lineage is one of the world’s most ancient and complete healing and self-development systems, a practice combining movement, breath, and the meditative mind to store and focus energy for personal transformation and healing. Distinguished both by its simplicity, and a lineage steeped in Buddhism, Daoism and Shamanism dating back over 7,000 years, this practice draws on the accumulated energy and consciousness of generations of masters, with Grandmaster Mingtang Xu being the current lineage holder.
One of the many benefits from Qigong is the natural cultivation of good health, peace and happiness! It naturally starts to exude from our pores, and shine from our eyes and soul, as Qigong establishes an inner harmony connected to the Great Harmony of Mother Earth and the Cosmos.
Come learn from our Big Trees and join us on this 4-week journey! 🙂
I look forward to practicing with you!!
