Dao Yin Five Organ Exercises
A group of exercises designed to strengthen and harmonize the physical body
and calm the mind.
In doing these slow but dynamic movements, you learn how
to integrate the body, mind and breath.
These exercises are made up of purgation (clearing), tonification (strengthening) and regulation
(balancing). When these are performed regularly, they strengthen the immune system,
increase mental well-being and personal power.
Six Healing Sounds
The ancient Taoists developed a series of exercises combining breath,
stretching and toning as a way to harmonize and strengthen the organ
systems. For each organ there is a specific sound that vibrates it and
this vibration breaks up stagnation such as held or unexpressed emotions.
These exercises are easy and flexible and can be done as a group
or separately to address a specific condition.
Wu Zang Meditation
(Energetic Protection Meditation for Clinicians)
Since ancient times in China, Medical Qigong doctors prepare themselves
before treating a patient by doing an energetic protection meditation. This
meditation called the Wu Zang is still practiced today in China by Medical
Qigong doctors before entering the clinic.
This practice will teach you how to protect yourself against
absorbing Toxic Qi.
