Opening the Channels


After the foundation stages have been laid down we need need to cultivate the inside of the body to be in alignment with the development of the energy work. In Lotus Nei Gong we have various methods to assist this process which we will be exploring in some detail during this retreat. This will enable you to progress your training at what ever stage you are to condition the body in the precise way necessary to open the channels.

Using the principles of the Yi Jin Jing with various Standing and Sitting postures, the Wu Dao Yin, and Qi Gong to regulate the body after the opening practices.

Sittting practice as always here at Bonhays will form a fairly large part of this retreat as will simple stretching routines to assist the process.

What is included in your retreat:

  • Use of heated, low-chemical indoor pool – helpful for releasing the joints/aches
  • Own room in the retreat centre, all linen & towels supplied (if residential)
  • High quality vegetarian, local, mostly organic food; most diets catered for (just ask); snacks, teas, fruit, etc. included
  • Zafus, cushions, blankets & bolsters for sitting practice provided
  • More information on the venue here

Please be aware that by the nature of being a longer event with a fairly intensive training schedule, including a number of sitting practice sessions per day, it is likely there will be times you hit your ‘edge’ or find it difficult.  If you are not sure this is right for you, please talk to us.  This event is not a beginner’s retreat.  If you are new to the school I would advise you to attend a weekend here or with one of the other teachers before participating.  Our training is intense and demanding – you need to be sure it’s for you.
