DescriptionOnline qigong courses - connecting heaven and earth qigong

This course is for people who are serious about Qigong, no matter what their current level of experience is. It is for people who want to practice true Qigong, to work Internally, rather than practicing slowed down aerobics.

Qigong is an Internal skill with the function of enhancing the practitioner’s Qi (energy) and the flow of Qi within the meridian system and energy body.

The movements and postures that Qigong uses are NOT Qigong in its entirety. They are one of the tools used to guide the Qi………………. just ONE of the tools.

In this course you will learn

  • To create a quiet body/mind through the use of Wuji stance. Poor posture creates distraction, noise, that interferes with the focus needed to guide the Qi.
  • To make use of the subtleties within the movements and postures to accurately guide the Qi.
  • To use the breath to guide the Qi and to help change the brainwave pattern from Beta wave to Alpha wave.
  • To use listening jing in order to gain tangible awareness of the Qi and the changes produced during Qigong. If you do not know what it is that you are meant to be guiding how can you guide it?
  • To become passionate about Qigong.

DescriptionOnline qigong course - eight exceptional vessels qigong

These Qigong exercises work with the Qi that is stored in the Eight Exceptional Vessels (aka the Extraordinary Meridians). These vessels are often likened to reservoirs that store Qi and blood while the Meridians can be likened to rivers that carry the Qi.

As well as using the Yi (that is the brain), the eyes and the breath to guide the Qi, these exercises also make use of the Master Points and the Coupled Points.

The quality, essence, of the Qi of the Exceptional Vessels is tangibly different to that of the Twelve Meridians. These exercises will open out an opportunity for you to experience this for yourself.

Ten Fundamental Treasures Qigong Course – Scotland

Ten Fundamental Treasures Qigong Course –  June 2017

As part of their ongoing courses, San Bao School is running a Ten Fundamental Treasures Qigong course in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. The two-day coursecovers the ten exercises, in depth, and provides beginners with a great foundation in Qigong while, at the same time, introducing more advanced practitioners to the subtleties contained within each exercise.

Ten Fundamental Treasures Qigong courseQigong (Chi Kung) is the art of working with energy, your life energy.  The external movements are only a small portion of the work that is being done as the practitioner moves their Qi around the meridian system.  To the external viewer, Qigong can look like slowed down aerobics but these exercises are much, much, more than that.  The external movements are there to assist the practitioner to prompt internal movement in their Qi.

True Qigong is only achieved when there is internal movement and waving your arms around while bobbing up and down is a very poor mimicry of this wonderful art .

The Ten Fundamental Treasures

  • Uphold the Heavens to Empower the Three Burning Spaces (San Jiao)
  • Harmonising Spleen and Stomach
  • Looking Backward
  • Pulling the Bow to Shoot the Hawk
  • Shaking the Head and Waving the Tail
  • Holding the Fists Tightly and Gazing with Angry Eyes
  • Abdominal Lift
  • Spring with the Toes
  • Hold the Toes and Strengthen the Kidneys
  • Change the Sinews (Yi Chin)

 

This San Bao Qigong course is relaxed and allows everybody to learn at their own pace.  There is no rush, no pressure, and no competition.

Feedback

  • “I’m really happy with what I gained from the course; an appreciation for the intention and focus of qi gong with regards energy and the points, correct movements, and the confidence to continue practice at home. The website resources are brilliant as a follow up. Thank you very much Des.”
  • “……….thank you so much for Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and I loved your way of teaching. I feel confident and keen to continue practicing what I’ve learned – which was exactly what I was hoping to gain, so much appreciation to you!”
  • “I didn’t realise until several days later that the reason I think I enjoyed this workshop more than the course is because the stance doesn’t change. It allowed me to stop thinking about what was next and where my feet needed to be so I could just focus on the qigong.”
  • “…………. It helped me to appreciate it more as an energetic practice with intention and focus on energy flow, as opposed to simply awareness on physical movement.”

Taiji Shibashi (十八) Instructors course

Taiji Shibashi Instructors Course – 2017

The Taiji Qigong Shibashi (十八) Instructor course is designed to provide Qigong instructors with all the tools and information needed to teach the Shibashi as true Qigong.

The Shibashi (also known as the Eighteen Postures of Taiji Qigong) is a set of Qigong exercises based on Taiji that adheres to the rules governing Taiji stances (in particular, the Wuji stance). These stances are fundamentally important if the practitioner wishes to get the most out of the Qigong.

Since the early 1980′s, when the Shibashi was introduced, in, the significance of the Taiji stances has been lost and their true use as Qigong has been diminished and the beneficial qualities have depleted.  Without a solid base (root) there is a conflict of focus and the cognitive mind (Yi) cannot be fully focused on guiding the Qi.  This being the case, during the course a lot of time is spent on attaining and recognizing proper posture.

Testimonials:

  • “……………… just wanted to thank you for a wonderful weekend.  It was brilliant, I really enjoyed it.  I gained much more than I expected to.  Thanks for opening my eyes.”
  • “Attending this Workshop was a very motivational experience; an exercise of discovery providing a brief insight into the amazing power of QiGong. I would recommend this inspirational workshop to all who have an interest in QiGong”
  • “I discovered that qigong was more powerful than I had ever imagined.  An excellent weekend and I learned so much more about myself that can be brought into my classes, I now feel more confident that I can deliver qigong more effectively to my students and also enjoy the benefits for myself, thank you so much.”
  • “I am so glad that I made the decision to attend a truly inspirational workshop and to have benefited from an introduction to the amazing powers of QiGong. I am aware that we only experienced an ‘insight’ but even so I consider that I am now in a better position to pass on quality teaching to my students, and having been an FE Lecturer for many years, I believe delivering quality is of paramount importance.
    I also thank you (and your wife) for your hospitality in providing delicious lunches and snacks – greatly appreciated!”
  • “Just thought I should send you a wee message to let you know how much doing the Qigong instructors course has helped me personally. I had just started 4th year at Uni when I came on the course. Uni has been horrendous and a few times it has been bad enough to make me consider leaving but doing Qigong has been a life saver. It has got me through some very tough times.
    Big thank you to you for teaching me this beautiful art. Qigong had definitely came into my life at the right time.”
  • “Thanks des. Really exceeded expectations. Will take time to assimilate the information properly before introducing to my classes.”

Taiji Shibashi Qigong Course

Taiji Shibashi Qigong Course –  2016

The Tai Chi Chi Kung Shibashi (十八), or the eighteen postures of Tai Chi Chi Kung, is a set of Chi Kung exercises that utilise Tai Chi stances and adhere to the rules governing them. Although this set was brought together in the 1980’s the individual exercises themselves date back centuries, even millenia.

The Shibashi Chi Kung focus on health and well-being, directing and promoting the flow of chi through the meridians. Although each of them can be practiced individually, or in any variation, the set flows beautifully, from one posture to the next,producing a feeling of inner calmness and wellbeing.

The health benefits from the Shibashi become clear when they are practiced regularly and, in effect, you are being proactive with your health and wellbeing. The Shibashi are easy to learn and can easily be practiced in a restricted space where the Tai Chi forms would be impossible.

Can Crystal Healing Help

Can Crystal Healing Help?

crystal healing - crystals

Crystal healing is the placement of crystals over the chakras and subtle energy centres of the body. During treatment, the practitioner will choose what crystals they deem best suited for the client utilising its energy healing qualities for their specific needs. Crystal healing has the ability to clear and remove energy blocks within the aura that cause physical and emotional distress, helping to deal with past trauma, phobias, addictions, etc.

According to practitioners of Crystal Therapy, each Crystal has its own healing qualities and although they can be used individually it is more common for a combination of crystals to be used. Some examples of the healing qualities are: –

Carnelian: 2nd chakra. Helps asthma, and blood pressure. And affects the circulatory system, kidneys, stimulate appetite, emotions, sexuality, physical energy, celebration, reproductive system, menstrual cramps, arthritis, kidneys, gall bladder, pancreas. Confidence, assertiveness, drive, Balance creativity and mental processes.

Emerald: 4th to 7th chakra. Lifts depression and relieves insomnia. Has a tranquillising effect on the heart (emotions). Respiratory system, heart, lymph nodes, blood, thymus, balance blood sugar, childbirth, eyesight. Strengthen heart chakra for growth, peace, harmony, patience, love, and honesty.

Applied Kinesiology, Dr George Goodheart

Applied Kinesiology

Please note that the information given refers to Applied Kinesiology as developed by the American chiropractor, Dr George Goodheart, in 1964, and not Kinesiology, the study of the mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement.

Applied Kinesiology - muscle testingPronounced kin-easy-ology, there are many different branches but they all utilise the same basic tool…………muscle testing. Muscle testing is a painless procedure that involves the practitioner applying gentle pressure to specific parts of the body, testing the response of the underlying muscle. The particular part of the body being tested is specifically positioned, in order to isolate the muscle (as far as possible) being tested. The muscle will either give way, at least slightly, or it will easily be able to resist the pressure from the practitioner. The resulting responses are used by the Kinesiologist as a means of diagnosis, to gain information and to decide what course of action what is required.

Kinesiology can help deal with a broad spectrum of complaints including emotional problems, educational problems, structural problems (posture), etc.

During a course off treatment, the practitioner will take a case history, then they will advise you how to position the particular muscle or muscles they want to test, also advising how much effort is necessary in resisting the pressure that is applied to the particular muscle. The practitioner may rub, tap or hold points on the body. They may use magnets, homeopathic remedies, or flower remedies and, occasionally use tuning forks, colour, or sound. The choice of treatment is totally determined by the muscle testing and no two treatments are alike as that treatment is for the person and not the condition………. Two people may have the same condition but they, themselves, are different so the course of treatment will be different.

Verbal muscle testing (not used by all Kinesiologists) is when the muscle testing response is sought by verbally asking questions: with a locked response of the arm indicating yes and an unlocked/spongy response indicating no. The practitioner will then systematically question, while muscle testing, in order to establish what treatment course is required. Verbal questioning can also be used alongside muscle testing.

Many other therapists have incorporated Kinesiology techniques into their diagnosis/treatment plans. These include, Chiropractors, Bowen therapists, Homeopaths and Aromatherapists.
