January Workshops

Happy New Year!!

2011 is going to be a great year and I am looking forward to exciting things happening this year.

First of all I am going to Bali for 10 days vacation. I will be leaving for Narita airport in just over an hour and will return on the morning of January 28th.

Since it is my first time to go to Bali I am really excited.

After I return on the 28th I will be doing 2 workshops to finish off the month.

Here are the details:

Universal Healing Tao Workshop: Iron Shirt Chi Kung

Universal Healing Tao Workshop: Iron Shirt Chi Kung

January 29th

Title: Ground yourself through Iron Shirt Chi Kung

Time: 7:00-10:00pm

Location: New Paradigm Center, Yoyogi Uehara

Cost: ¥4200

Based on the Universal Healing Tao System, Iron Shirt Chi Kung is the practice of cultivating internal strength, detoxifying the internal organs and developing a solid grounding and connection to the Earth. The purpose of Iron Shirt Chi Kung is to unify Physical, Mental and Spiritual health.

In today’s “yang” society we are surrounded by so much information and the fast pace of life makes it too easy to loose our grounding and connection to the Earth. Many people become too centered in their minds, scattered and loose the ability to focus clearly.

This workshop will focus on practicing the various forms of Iron Shirt Chi Kung in order to help us to reconnect with the Earth’s “yin” energy and be more centered in our Tan Den which enables us to focus very clearly and make better decisions in life.

The first step will be to understand the importance of being deeply grounding and connected with the Earth. To do this we need to smile internally and down to the Earth to release all of our stress.

We will practice the basic Iron Shirt postures in order to feel how strong we become when we sink our center to the Earth and place our awareness in the Tan Den. After practicing individually we will test each other’s structure in order to help each other develop stronger grounding and more confidence.

By practicing the various postures of Iron Shirt Chi Kung we will also develop strength in the tendons, bones and muscles.

The second step will be to use tan den breathing techniques to detox and cleanse the internal organs and glands. These breathing techniques are very powerful and can be used to increase the flow of hormones in the body and strengthen the immune system.

The third step will be to meditate with our awareness in the Tan Den in order to attract more Chi into the lower Tan Den, prevent Chi from leaking out of the body and learn how to circulate the Chi in the Microcosmic Orbit.

Finally we will finish with the Six Healing Sounds to further detox the internal organs and relax the body.
