Heaven and Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands Course

Heaven and Earth Qigong Overview

The Marriage of Heaven and Earth Qigong teaches you to feel, coordinate and enhance these natural pulsings, also known as openings and closings. These openings and closings lie at the heart of the more advanced Taoist qi practices within qigong, tai chi, bagua, hsing-i, qigong tui na bodywork, yoga and advanced Taoist meditation (solo or interactive practices).

Heaven and Earth Qigong teaches you how to:

  • Simultaneously move qi through your muscles, tendons and ligaments as you bend and stretch them
  • Open and close your joints, body cavities and even acupuncture points without using muscular strength
  • Circulate qi through your Microcosmic and Macrocosmic pathways
  • Soothe and release physical, emotional and mental blockages
  • Let go and reduce the effects of stress and tension inside your body

Although primarily done standing, this qigong set is easily adapted to be done sitting at your computer, where it can mitigate such problems as fatigue, burnout and carpal tunnel syndrome. Movement and bodywork practitioners can learn to integrate openings and closings of the joints into their practices and to project energy from their hands for healing.

Heaven and Earth Qigong for Internal Martial Artists
The basic energy principles in tai chi, bagua, or hsing-i or other internal martial arts are integral to Heaven and Earth. Most of the internal complexities of Heaven and Earth are likely to be absolutely new material even to long-time practitioners of internal martial arts. This is particularly true as regards opening and closing and directly moving qi, which is rarely taught in the West. Yet tai chi masters in China have always said that without opening and closings there is no tai chi. During the course, Bruce will at times demonstrate how to incorporate openings and closings within tai chi and bagua forms.

Tai Chi Circling Hands Overview

Bruce Frantzis created his Tai Chi Circling Hands exercise method as a vehicle for practicing the primary opening and closing neigong techniques found in various qigong sets such as Heaven and Earth and in the more complex art of tai chi.

The physical movements of Circling Hands are simpler and considerably easier to learn than a tai chi form. They appeal to Westerners in exactly the same way as the treadmill or the stair climber machines: all are exercises that can be done over and over again as a workout routine.

Yet the physical movements of Circling Hands go far beyond such regular exercises. They are designed to powerfully move fluids and qi in the body. Many people can feel significant changes in their bodies from doing just the physical movements.

Once students enjoy the success of learning the simple physical moves, instructors can teach them the internal qi techniques within Heaven & Earth Qigong. Students will appreciate the deeper internal work that can be added to make the familiar routines more interesting, opening them up to new possibilities in their bodies and minds.

I first met Bruce in 1992, as a 17 year old, I had all sorts of fantasies about becoming strong and learning to defend myself. Bruce taught me that through hard work and daily practice a world of incredible depth and peace can be found within the art of Ba Gua Zhang that goes far beyond the ability to knock out King Kong.
