Di pan gung fu (di pan gong fu)

The skill of the lower body. The chi cultivation skill wherein the chi from the lower tantien to the feet fully and completely opens. In martial arts and chi gung, this is considered the highest level of skill, for if the lower-body chi opens fully, the chi automatically reaches the upper body. This is summed up in the classical chi cultivation phrase, "The deeper the root, the higher the tree and the more abundant its branches."

I recently returned from a three week instructor training in a chi gung practice called “Gods Playing in the Clouds”. This intensive was held at Menlo College near San Francisco and I’d like to share some details about my experience.
