Qigong Tui Na: Physical and Energetic Body Work

Durham, NC, United States
8 July 2018 - 14 July 2018

 We are excited to announce the first Energy Arts residential Summer retreats in many years.  On-site accommodation is limited, so register now.

Part of Bruce’s Taoist training was learning to apply qigong tui na (energy healing) techniques to over 1000 patients in medical clinics in China. In this new qigong tui na course, he’ll share the knowledge and experience he gained in how to apply the internal energy methods of qigong and neigong within bodywork to heal others. He’ll teach those who are new to qigong tui na sophisticated joint manipulation and healing techniques drawn from Heaven and Earth Qigong and Bend the Bow Qigong.

Beginners and experienced bodywork practitioners alike will find these energetic techniques to be useful and immediately applicable. For those who have studied core energy qigong tui na with him in the past, he’ll teach deeper aspects of subjects such as openings and closings, twisting and spiraling, or other techniques drawn from the 16 neigong components of internal power.

Openings and Closings: Heaven & Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands

Durham, NC, United States
1 July 2018 - 7 July 2018

We are excited to announce the first Energy Arts residential Summer retreats in many years.  On-site accommodation is limited, so register now. (SINGLES ARE ALREADY SOLD OUT)

Deep below the surface of all authentic Taoist energy practices is the subtle opening and closing of your joints, circulatory system, internal organs, and cavities, which radiate outward to set the rhythm for the rest of your body and movements. If you learn how to control these subtle movements, then you learn how to harness the power of Qi in your physical and energetic bodies.

Openings and closings is one of the MOST important internal energy practices (Neigong) used to supercharge Qi development. In fact, openings and closings are so fundamental to Taoist energy arts that without them, you don’t have Tai Chi, Qigong, Bagua, Internal Martial Arts, or even meditation.

During this week long retreat Bruce will teach the practice of Openings and Closings neigong inside Heaven & Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands.

Tai Chi: Wu Style Short and Medium Forms

Durham, NC, United States
24 June 2018 - 30 June 2018

We are excited to announce the first Energy Arts residential Summer retreat in many years. Where Bruce will share his 40 plus years of experience practicing and teaching Tai chi, including his knowledge as a lineage holder in both the Wu style and Yang style of tai chi. On-site accommodation is limited, so register now.

Wu style tai chi is the second most popular style in the world. It was created directly from Yang Style Tai Chi and as such is the largest variant of the Yang style. However, unlike most traditions in Yang style Tai Chi, most Wu tai chi schools emphasize small, compact movements over large and medium-sized ones. The Yang and Wu tai chi styles, with all their variations, encompass the vast majority (80 percent or more) of all tai chi practitioners.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn the Wu Style Tai Chi form from the only known lineage holder of Wu and Yang style tai chi and Taoist meditation teacher in the West.If you have ever wanted to learn tai chi, this summer is the best time! The Wu Style Tai Chi Long Form that Bruce teaches was developed by Wu style co-founder Wu Jien Chuan. He personally taught it to Liu Hung Chieh, who taught it to Bruce. Bruce developed his Wu Style Short and Medium Form from this Long Form with the encouragement of his teacher Liu.

Testimonials

In the last three decades I have been trained by some of the leading Western experts in Sexual Meditation, but none of them showed me the depth of material presented in Bruce Frantzis' new book "Taoist Sexual Meditation". It is a quantum leap forward in the field of sexual meditation!
