Hunyuan Qi Gong

The Hunyuan Qi Gong set we work with in the school moves a practitioner deeply into the interior of their training, into working directly with the Dan Tian and bringing the practitioner into a state of deeper and deeper internal listening and release. This skill is vital to develop if a person wishes to move beyond the surface levels of their training.

The Hunyuan lead a practitioner into the congenital meridian system, creating the means for deeper alchemical work, and providing the means to access the huang aspect of the interior of the body.

This retreat is not for people brand new to the school. Tt will not be helpful to start your Nei Gong journey here, but for those of you who have covered the absolute foundations (Wuji, Kua, Dan Tian) this course will be fine. We will aim to work through the most important exercises from this set, and cover some of the theory to help you understand what you’re doing.  It is a good time of year to work on these exercises… hopefully it won’t be freezing!

If you have a chronic health condition please contact us for advice before applying. The alchemical nature of this exercise set make it not particularly suitable if there are strong physical imbalances – if you feel this may apply to you, please check with us.
