When you are able to connect to and experience the Chi (life force energy) flowing within your own body and through your movements, then Tai Chi comes to life!
Taoist QiGong Internal Alchemy helps you sense, explore and awaken your energy system.QiGong meditations , exercises , and special energy cultivation techniques deepen and expand your practice as you open into a "world of Chi."
Clearing out the blocked energy of negative emotions due to tension, trauma, injury, and stresses of daily life is the first step in supporting your Tai Chi . The direct and practical work with the organs of the body enables you to gently remove blocked energies and renew healthy function through a practice called Inner Smile meditation. This smiling and loving connection to your body, mind and spirit is the foundation of all internal transformation.
The Internal Alchemy teaches you how to open and free up the circulation of essential pathways (meridians) in your body.. Being able to experience your energy anatomy is invaluable to sensing and feeling the flow of Chi.
The next step is becoming centered and "rooted" into the earth. The standing practice of QiGong creates a structural integrity within your own body aligned with the forces of gravity. This integration allows you to move as one unit in your form without any displacement in posture that will throw you off balance or disrupt the flow.
The open energy channels along with the integration of your physical structure give you the foundation to generate and create reserves of increasing amounts of Chi in your body.
The connection between your movements and your energy system give you internal power. Internal Alchemy gives you the ability to cultivate and direct your life force through techniques of cycling sexual energy through your energy paths. This practice gives a highly beneficial alternative to the depletion, frustration and relational problems that stem from not knowing how to direct and use one of your most vital and abundant sources of energy. Your passion can be a "healing love" that regenerates you and enlivens your life.
With the advanced practices of QiGong, you begin to experience a rich energy universe that is expressed through the Tai Chi form. Taoist QiGong Internal Alchemy will give you the background to understand the fundamental principles of Tai Chi from the inside out.
As your Tai Chi form connects you deeply with the innate forces of nature , you will find a whole new inner dynamic energizing your practice. Taoist Internal Alchemy fulfills and expands the Tai Chi practice with a vital connection to the source of "Chi."
