"Heart and Lung. The Lung governs or master
the qi of the whole body, and the Heart
is responsible for the blood. Blood and qi
are just another expression
of the whole vitality.”

It opens the back very deeply and allows a deep meditative state within the flow between heart/kidney or fire/water energies. This is an occasion to deepen your mechanical understanding of the psoas muscle and the energetics behind it.

The Chinese character for the emotions has two parts the heart is on left, and on the right is the green and blue/color of life.  It gives the image of movement as a surging force. Once there is the constitution of the body as an organism then emotions can express themselves.  In this workshop we would look at emotions as a form of light that colors us and moves within and without us. We will observe how emotions reside within the essences of the zang / organs and manifest as expression in being.

Tai Chi - Chi Kung is a practice developed by Grand Master Mantak Chia. It is the art of cultivating and condensing chi in the lower abdomen--the tan tien--the fundamental power storehouse of the body. Known as the Ocean of Chi to the ancient Taoists, this lower abdominal area holds the key to opening the body and the mind for the free and continuous movement of chi. Tai Chi - Chi Kung contains specific breathing and movement exercises that develop the power of the chi stored in the body to increase vitality, strengthen organs, and promote self-healing.
