Nei Gong Retreats

During these three kveot5zipzan4hk_sn3e6ouo66lap0yqbpp7s7nah_8days we will cover aspects of  the Level One Nei Gong syllabus as taught by Damo Mitchell of Lotus Nei Gong.  Each retreat will have a focus upon one of the following foundation sets amongst focusing where the students present most need:

Sung and Ting, Ji Ben Qi Gong, Wu Dao Yin, Wu Xing Qi Gong, Jing Gong Practice, Hunyuan Qi Gong, Dragon Dao Yin

For more general information about these sets click here. Please remember these are the tools of the process not the process itself!

We will include body conditioning, clearing and purging the system of physical and emotional stagnation, beginning to understand Sung, theory to align the awareness and direct transmission to continue the Nei Gong process. If you haven’t trained with either Lotus Nei Gong or Sophie before please read this and speak to Sophie before booking. 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.
