Year of the Water Snake
At last the month of May has graced us with some wonderful warmth and sunshine. We are doing the 5 Animals Retreat at Seale Hayne on Tuesday the 7th of May and it seems we will have the right conditions to do the practice out of doors. This stand alone practice of Hua Gong is at once strengthening, rejuvenating and empowering.
For many years Zhixing has taught this practice of imitating animals for good health and fitness and yet each time the experience and information is fresh and inspiring. Also known as the 5 Animals frolics it is one of the pillars of the Hua Gong practice.
The Qi Calligraphy for this month is entitled the "Dancing Figure". A good way to tune into the energy of the Qi Calligraphy is to imagine that it is looking at us as we are looking at it. We then need to respond to the possible effects.
" Dancing Figure": This image represents a lively free and vibrant state of body and energy and an orderly and healthy state of information. It is both micro and macro- it could be a particle, spark or a cell, or the whole body or a star. In Qigong practice we can experience every cell and the whole body dancing with lively, joyful and sparkling energy."

Most of the discoveries through the way of Hua Gong on the human body and energy, on health and illness, on rejuvenation and longevity and on spirituality have been shared in these weekends.It provides the most detailed Hia Gong teachings on the fundamental level and represents the most updated Hua Gong transmission in terms of the "Qi field" (overall sensation or experience of the energy effects in the group), techniques and information.
Small Group Classes at the London Weekend
From a Learning aspect these classes provide a chance to receive the results or accomplishment of the Qigong practice directly through personal empowerment-the recharge of energy and information.
From a Health point of view it is an opportunity to receive a personal Qi treatment and to stay in the Qi field for a period of time to consolidate the good effects.
The benefit of personal transmission or Qi treatment session has often been experienced as being more beneficial than months even years of Qigong practice on one's own.
