Qigong Level 5

with Dr. Eva Wong

April 28 - 30, 2019

Students will be introduced to traditional Outer and Inner Qigong from two systems: the Pre-celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School. This is through the lineage handed down by Dr. Eva Wong. Xiantianwujimen was founded in the Song dynasty (circa 10th to 12th centuries) by Daoist sage Chen Xiyi, who is recognized as "the father of qigong." Eva Wong is the 19th-generation carrier (quanren) of this lineage. The Yiquan School was founded by Wang Xiangzhai in the early 20th century. Yiquan is best known for its standing qigong postures called Zhangzhuan. One of Master Wang's students was the Luhe Bafa master Sun Di. 

In Level 5 students will learn:

  1. The Leopard, Snake, and Crane postures of the Five Internal Animals Training from the Wudang Shan lineage. The leopard form trains tendon flexibility and strength; the snake form trains flexibility in the spinal column to facilitate the circulation of qi; and the crane form enhances the ability of the body to conserve and store generative energy (jing). In addition, by immersing themselves in the spirit of these animals, participants will eventually embody the explosive power of a leaping leopard, the elusive movement of the snake, and the balanced stillness of a crane in repose.
  2. Part 3 of the Immortals' Guide to Self-massage and Breath regulation. This system combines self-massage and breath control to facilitate the conservation and circulation of internal energy.
  3. Part 3 of Chen Xiyi's Red Phoenix Calisthenics System. This system combines tendon-changing, calisthenics, self-massage, and breath regulation.
