Bend the Bow and Shoot the Arrow Qigong

Hove, United Kingdom
3 October 2014 - 5 October 2014

Presented by the Taoist Study Society.

Bend the Bow Qigong is a powerful practice for consciously strengthening and regenerating the spine. In China, this form is used to control spinal energy and achieve optimum functioning of spinal vertebrae movement. In China, it was found to be helpful in relieving mild to severe back problems such as scoliosis. Learning to control the alignments and flow of qi in your spinal vertebrae can be the path to a happy and healthy back and neck.

At its more sophisticated levels, Bend the Bow can enable people to consciously move each spinal vertebra in any direction at will without external physical motion—techniques not believed to be possible in Western medicine. This technique is also a basic component of Fa Jin in internal martial arts and central channel work in Taoist meditation. 

Join us for this special course that has rarely been offered in Europe.

Hsing-i for Health and Martial Arts

Neu-Ulm, Germany
25 October 2014 - 26 October 2014

Presented by Tai Chi Schule, Ulm, Germany.

Although Hsing-i is known mainly as an internal martial art form, it is in fact one of the most powerful health practices on the planet.

Hsing-i has two main goals:

  1. To make your mind calm, focused and unwavering. This is useful whether you are in the office, engaging in martial arts, training in a sport or practicing meditation of some kind. 
  2. To get your consciousness fully in your body and have the physical body properly aligned. Once your body is correctly aligned, it has the potential for qi to flow freely. You tap into the qi already there, develop more of it and build reserves for internal power. 

In China hsing-i is known as one of the most direct ways to make your body strong and healthy.

Price: €250
Price after Sep 1: €290

In the last three decades I have been trained by some of the leading Western experts in Sexual Meditation, but none of them showed me the depth of material presented in Bruce Frantzis' new book "Taoist Sexual Meditation". It is a quantum leap forward in the field of sexual meditation!
