Explore how qigong and taoist Meditation can help you embody a fuller, happier, and healthier Life.

Without a doubt, 2020 has been the near definition of living in “interesting times.” Almost everyone has felt the emotional and physical effects due to a dramatic surge in uncertainty, anxiety, confusion, and even despair.

To reclaim a sense of well-being and bring back your strength, focus, and stability to optimal levels, it’s important to work in harmony with the elements that exist within you and around you during each season.

Working in harmony with the elements has always been a hallmark of traditional Taoist energy work and a way of boosting a practitioner’s health and performance to their full potential. Chinese medicine and cosmology recognize five key elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal.

When the metal energy is strong and balanced in your body, you have the increased ability to remain focused in spite of the changing world around you, persevere regardless of unstable circumstances, and drastically decrease anxiety/fear.

In order to help you achieve these levels of stability and strength, I will be introducing you to the most essential metal element practices. These practices include using Taoist standing postures (including “San Ti” or “The King of Postures”), Taoist sitting meditation, and basic movement exercises rooted in the internal martial arts of Hsing-I and I Chuan. These teachings are appropriate for all ages and levels of ability.

The purpose of this special elemental virtual workshop is to give you practical tools to work with the energy of the metal element in ways that support a body and mind that is clear, stable, and strong. These qualities in turn create an internal landscape of stability and calm even when the external world can seem out of control.

This Five Elements Virtual Workshop will take place over the course of one weekend and will include follow-up practice exercises to help you integrate everything you just learned.

Here is what we’ll be covering together
in the upcoming Five Elements Workshop:

November 13 – 15, 2020:

November 17-19, 2020:
3-Days of Guided Practices 
includes three guided practice sessions to implement and carry forward everything you learned during the weekend workshop, led by Senior Instructor Craig Barnes.

During this workshop, you will receive Live lessons taught by expert trainers. you will also receive recordings and lifetime access.

Even though times have been challenging for all of us recently. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to connect and train with you all this autumn.

Working with the energy of the current season is not only a healthy practice in the moment, but it also allows you to set the stage for fully harnessing the energy and positive potential of the next season and year. In this case, fortifying your system to embrace the water of winter flowing into a new year with ease and strength.

In appreciation,

Bruce Frantzis and Craig Barnes

“One of the greatest secrets of Qi(Chi) practices is that, no matter what your age or health condition when you start, you can improve and keep improving.”
