Feng Shui your body with Taijiquan and Qigong! Dantian Rotation and Qi Circulation
June 16 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
By Howard Choy (Cai Hong 蔡洪), B.Arch. (UNSW), Principal of Shou Yi Taijiquan and Qigong in Berlin and Europe.
The Dantian or the “Elixir Field” is a conceptual region about 5 mm below your navel. It is also called the “Qi focus and flow centre”, in the sense that it is an area where the upper part of your body is able to link with the the lower part and vice versa. It happens when your Dantian is full and rotating, so all your physical movements and mental intentions can connect together with the breath, to achieve efficacy in your practice.
To circulate the Qi is to make Yin Yang with your body, your breath and your heart/mind (the Xin). Then the Earth Qi of the body, the Human Qi of the breath and the Heaven Qi of the Xin can come together to achieve the “Unity of the Heaven, Earth and Human” (Tian Di Ren He Yi 天地人合一 in Chinese), which is the ultimate aim in any Chinese cultural pursuit, whether it is Feng Shui, health and healing or the martial arts.
This at first sounds highly theoretical, but with clear explanation and unique techniques for practice, first on your own and then with a partner to test your Qi strength and connection, you can come to a better understanding of what Taijiquan and Qigong is all about and take them to another level. At the same time, your push-hand skills will definitely improve over time.
This workshop is something worthwhile for you to spend a few hours with Howard Choy, to penetrate through and to master the mystery of Taijiquan and Qigong. What you will get from Howard is his “xinde”, that is his experience and understanding, after more than 50 years of practice and learning from bona fide lineage holders like Chen Yongfa in Choy Lee Fut Kungfu, Yang Souchung in Yang family Tajiquan and Chen Xiaowang in Chen family Taijiquan.
Do come and join us, either in the morning talk or with the afternoon practice or both.
All are welcome!
