Spiraling Energy Body within Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong

October 20, 2018 - October 24, 2018

For the first time in decades, Bruce will teach how to apply the practice of Spiraling Energy Body within Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong in this special course.

Spiraling Energy Body greatly develops the energy work initiated in Energy Gates Qigong. The upwards current of energy and upwards dissolving are fully engaged, the energy gates of the body fully activated, and the resulting spiraling energy pathways between the energy gates energized. Spiraling Energy Body is the practice in Taoist neigong where all the energy channels of the body are first opened and then fully developed. This eventually includes the micro and macro-cosmic orbits of energy and channels at the body’s core, the right, left and central channels, which supply energy directly to the vital organs, central nervous system, brain, glands and spiritual dimensions.

This can revolutionize the energetic power of all our physical, mental and spiritual aspects, giving life to the well-known Taoist instruction: “The mind moves the chi, the chi moves the body”. Taoist Qigong makes use of this greatly boosted, dynamic energy to rejuvenate all aspects of the body, energy and mind. Taoist Internal Martial Arts make uses this energy to greatly develop energetic sensitivity and power. Taoist Meditation makes use of it to fully open the heart, mind and spirit.

In the Water Method of Taoism, Gods Playing in the Clouds is considered the “jewel in the crown” of all qigong methods. Gods unifies the complete energy work of all Taoist Qigong with Taoist Meditation and so forms the perfect vehicle for developing the energetic power of Spiraling Energy Body within both qigong and meditation.

Course Details

In this retreat Bruce will be teaching Spiraling Energy within Gods primarily from an energy development or qigong point of view. This is a profound, powerful and complete qigong practice. Indeed, the combination of Spiraling’s boosted energy, together with the completeness of the energy work in Gods, can realize the possibility of practicing qigong as a genuine longevity and rejuvenation practice, for which Taoism is rightly famous and Gods is the prime practice. It is hoped this retreat may form the basis for taking this energy development work into Taoist Meditation and Gods as a spiritual practice in the future.

The first two days will work entirely with Spiraling Energy Body. It is highly recommended that those unfamiliar with this practice attend these two days, and others attend to develop and sharpen their practice. Each person will be shown a Standing Posture best suited to developing their energies personally by Bruce, drawn from the classic 200 postures at the heart of Taoist Qigong. The rest of the retreat will explore how Spiraling is practiced within Gods.

It is also recommended those unfamiliar or less familiar with Gods Playing in the Clouds attend a course with a certified Energy Arts instructor in this qigong before attending this course. Beginners will be shown how to do the 6 movements of Gods during the course, but it will be very helpful to have learned these beforehand if possible.

This course will form an excellent platform for attending Bruce’s course on Taoist Meditation within Gods Playing in the Clouds which occurs immediately after this course in Ulm Germany.
