Bend the Bow and Shoot the Arrow Qigong

Santa Eulalia del Rio, Ibiza, Spain
4 July 2015 - 5 July 2015

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.

Price after May 1st: $375

For the first time in Europe, Taoist Lineage Master Bruce Frantzis is offering a three-week, 150-hour, instructor training where you can receive certification in Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong.

This is one of the oldest and most powerful Taoist rejuvenation methods. It was the only qigong Bruce Frantzis' Taoist Lineage Master, Liu Hung Chieh, practiced daily after age 50 to enhance his personal longevity.

Composed of only 6 physical movements, this qigong set at its advanced level incorporates all aspects of neigong. It is a primary bridge between qigong and meditation. The external physical movements of Gods are fairly simple yet encompass all the internal techniques of qigong. Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong builds on and enhances all the material in the other qigong programs Bruce Frantzis teaches.

Hsing-I for Health and Internal Power

Neu-Ulm, Germany
31 October 2015 - 1 November 2015

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.

Taoist Meditation: Motion of the Mind and Resolving the Pressure of Time

Neu-Ulm, Germany
2 November 2015 - 6 November 2015

Presented by Tai Chi Schule, Ulm, Germany.

The motion of the mind connects your mind stream with your conscious and unconscious mind. When clear it prevents your emotions from taking you over. When murky and blocked it makes the mind disturbed, reduces mental abilities and easily harms or makes your body uncomfortable. 

This retreat will focus on using Inner Dissolving meditation and other Taoist meditation practices to connect to the motion of the mind and move past the many never-ending sources of time pressure. Inner Dissolving meditation is a key part of the tradition of Laozi (Lao Tse), which helps you release conditioning, tension and blockages that bind and prevent you from reaching your full spiritual potential.

The Old Yang style is the basis of Wu style tai chi as taught by Wu Jien Chuan. It is this Old Yang style of tai chi as taught and passed on by Yang’s sons that Bruce will teach during the course of this workshop. He learned this style in depth over decades of study in China.

Testimonials

In November 2009 I was lucky to attend The Chi Rev Workout workshop in Basel Switzerland with Bruce. There I learned D&T movement 1, 4 and 5 and began practicing on a regular basis.

Since then - the really great thing is - that I do not suffer from springtime pollen allergies anymore. This is my 3rd year allergy free.

Recently I completed the online D&T course and I am now able to perform the full set of seven movements with ease.
