Session 2A: June 17-22
Fusion I & II, and Iron Shirt I
In the second week, the Fusion practice focuses on balancing negative and positive emotional energy and channeling the earth and universal forces using the eight forces of the Pakua. Negative energy is transformed and made to blend with positive energy which is then fused into a pearl of pure life-force energy. This pearl is circulated in the Microcosmic Orbit and is used to open channels.
Iron Shirt I helps to develop a flexible, “steel-like” body by working with rooted standing meditation postures. These postures are the most effective way to ground your energy and stabilize your emotional body. Physically, they work to strengthen the fascia (connective tissue) which, in turn, protects the internal organs. In total, the standing postures and moving qigong techniques of Iron Shirt I create extraordinary health, strength, and vitality.
This retreat week is certification required-training for those who already know Basic Practices, have mastered them and want to be trained and certified to teach.
Session 2B: June 17-22
Chi Nei Tsang Massage – Hands on Healing with Karin Sorvik
Taoist sages observed that humans often develop energy blockages in and around their internal organs that result in knots and tangles in the abdomen. These can constrict the flow of chi, eventually resulting in physical ailments. A powerful hands-on healing technique that utilizes the five major systems of the body: vascular, lymphatic, nervous, muscular, and chi. These systems are connected to the abdominal center, where unreleased stress and tension may cause obstructions. Through simple manipulations of the abdominal area, we can release physical, emotional, and mental resistance that can cause illness. Learn Five Element body diagnosis and how to transmit healing energy to others without depleting one’s energy. This powerful practice is long-lasting and can be used for self- healing
Participants may qualify to enter a program leading to certification through submission of practice case studies.This week offers 35 NCBTMB CEU credits for massage/bodywork therapists.
Session 3: June 22-28
Healing Love: Natural Hormones, Stem Cell and Golden Elixir Qigong with Master Mantak Chia, Dr George Yu and Karin Sorvik
As we are living longer than ever before, we need to grasp the concept of “maintenance and rejuvenation” throughout our lives and to find the best ways to live with vitality and vigor in the years we have ahead of us.
Taoist philosophy states that all the best medicines and good food in the world cannot help one achieve longevity unless one knows and practices the Tao of sexual cultivation. Great sex bolsters the immune system, strengthens internal organs, enhances our emotional wellbeing, and inspires creativity. Considered to be one of the three treasures of life, sexual energy is the foundation for our life-force energy and spiritual awareness.
