Autumn Qigong

Autumn is a time of transition when the hot Yang energy of summer gives way to the cool Yin energy of winter.  The days are shorter, the leaves fall from the trees, and we say goodbye to the long beautiful days of summer.  It is the time to take the Yang energy of summer and store it away so that it is preserved on the inside.  This Qi Gong was designed to help the body smoothly move through the shift from Yang to Yin.

Winter Qigong

During the three winter months, Yin is dominant over Yang.  The days are shorter and colder.  All living things slow down.  It is important to conserve energy and build strength.  The organs associated with winter are the kidneys and bladder.  Chinese medicine views the kidneys as the storehouse of energy that sends warmth and energy to every cell in the body.  The winter qigong practices were designed to support the kidneys, keeping you strong and healthy through the cold winter months.


Daoist Rituals for Health

Daoism is China's native religion that has become well known worldwide for its health nourishing practices.  Today there are few who have not at least heard of Tai Chi Chuan/Taijiquan or Qigong.  

Daoist health practices permeate all facets of life however beyond just their exercises and martial arts.  Practices such as acupuncture and herbal medicine are becoming more and more widespread.  It is the Daoist theories and life habits that draw the complete picture of Daoist Yang Sheng (Health nourishing practices). 

Daoists revere long lived creatures such as turtles.  Therefore walking imitates the turtle by moving slowly whilst being mindful of the qi settling peacefully in the lower dan tian like calm waters. 

In Daoist prayer, attention is paid to the hand position to form the Taijtu symbol.  The hands will then be held to the upper dan tian and the breathing is focused there as well.  As the head is lowered, so too must the breathing follow down into the lower dan tian, before being gently exhaled out according to the meridian of the body back out.
