Nei Gong Foundations

Awakening the cauldron

During these three days we will begin the foundation work necessary for entering into the Nei Gong process. (For more information about this click here.) This will include body conditioning, clearing and purging the system of physical and emotional stagnation, theory to align the awareness and direct transmission to awaken the lower Dan Tien.

These are the methods classically required in Daoist schools to assist the student in entering into this transformative process, without one of these ingredients the students progress will be inhibited or even halted. This is the method taught by Lotus Nei Gong, the school for which Sophie is a senior teacher.
