Taoist Water Method Meditation 1 - Neigong

July 6, 2017 - Thursdays 11:15 to 12:45 a.m.

Neigong can be defined as work with the internal energy already present in the body. So this is different from Qigong which is focused on drawing energy into the body and using the breath to lead it to wherever it is needed.

In this two year series of classes we will be focused on the Taoist Water Method. We will begin with learning to breathe. This Taoist method is called Longevity Breathing and is the basis of much of our work over the next two years. We continue with becoming aware of and present to the blockages in each of our first four energy bodies and how to release that blocked energy. This is based on both outer and inner dissolving practices which can, at the very least, help us to live with less stress and improve health by dissolving the internal blockages we have accumulated previously in our life.

Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong 1

Oct 3, 2017 - Tuesday 9:00 to 10:15 a.m.

"Quickly raises the energy levels of the body to boost your natural healing capacities."

Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong is a 1,500-year-old self-healing movement system based 
on acupuncture. It is sometimes called "meridian-line qigong" because it helps free you of energetic (chi) blockages by balancing the chi flow that runs through the acupuncture 
meridians or energy channels of your body.

Dragon and Tiger Qigong is especially renowned for simultaneously accomplishing three major changes in the body: " Releases stagnant chi that cannot move freely. Stagnant 
chi can be located anywhere there is a physical, emotional or psychic blockage of energy. 'Increases the speed, strength and evenness of the circulation of chi, blood and other fluids. 
This balances the body's energy.''

Spiritual Philosophy of the Tao Te Ching

Oct. 14, 2017 - Saturdays 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

The Tao Te Ching is the second most translated book in the world pointing to the respect in which it is held around the world. Most often commentaries interpret it in terms of how one should behave in family, government or business relationships. However there is a deeper message contained in this wonderful work. It is guidance on one’s spiritual path both philosophically and in more specific directions on meditation and spiritual practice. This will be our focus in this class.
