I Ching

Also known as yi jing. The Book of Changes. This 5000-year-old book is considered to be the classic Taoist text about the nature of change and how change occurs. The I Ching encompasses eight trigrams that embody the eight primal chi energies of which the universe is composed, according to Taoist thought. The eight expand to sixty-four by detailing how each of the individual trigrams impacts, mitigates, and expands the others when they are mixed. Ba gua chang is a mind/body/spirit practice that seeks to have an individual experience within his or her own being what the I Ching communicates intellectually.

Because Dragon and Tiger Qigong is a simple and effective qigong practice, it is taught to students at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. Tracing the meridian lines helps our students to become more sensitive to both their own and their patients' chi and enables them to become better acupuncturists.
