This is an online class that is part of our online "Introduction to Daoist Alchemy" series.
Daoist Alchemy is the evolution of the body, mind, and spirit. It is a progressive science, divided into different realms of practice: Heaven, Earth, and Man. As one progresses with deep listening, this science becomes an art.
This transformation begins with the levels of Man, progresses through Earth, and concludes as one traverses the levels of Heaven.
In this seminar, we will delve into the level of Man through the Alchemy of Posture. Posture is the first regulation of Qigong, and thus, it is the first pillar of Daoist alchemy. It is the foundation upon which all training is built. Without a solid foundation no house can stand.
As posture comes into alignment, the imbalances of yin and yang within channels and organs are remediated, blockages eliminated, balance is restored, and a continual flow between Heaven and Earth achieved.
Correctly aligned posture allows not only for the balancing of yin and yang, but the transcendence thereof. Through the proper implementation of posture, it is possible to dissolve into the infinite space of Wuji.
If posture is correct,
the breath is deep,
the mind is clear.
In this seminar we will cover:
- 18 Rules of Posture
- Postural modifications to activate and regulate the meridians
- Proper posture for sitting meditation
- Finding and remediating structural imbalances
- Body Breathing
- Increasing flow between Heaven and Earth.
