Spring has Sprung, and is upon us.

Spring Newsletter

The Qigong Meditation group traveled across the 20 week Martialworks Qigong Meditation training program, they accomplished no less than a series of 7 meditations. The 7 meditations were taught at basic, intermediate and advanced levels; this gradual introduction to meditative practice, proved of critical importance as we came hurtling into the Springtime. Our increased energy becoming active with the season, the group will now move outdoors to begin their 6 months of Qigong Boxing training.

Congratulations to those of you that cleared entrance requirements to the Martialworks Qigong Boxing training program; you have achieved a good grasp of how to activate your Eight Extraordinary Meridians. It is this ability earned in contemplation, or Neidan; that allows us to take you deeper into your practice through Weidan.

Weidan, the external movement that is deeply energizing and provides the connection to contemplation, as the internalization of Lifeforce.

Inside of these lessons, students will be taught to incorporate their meditations into the myriad movements of Chinese Boxing.

This invitation only event promises to be the greatest yet, with many exciting workshops and top-notch experts contributing to the best of nature based training.

As we all know:

“It is only in Nature that we can connect to the elements, but once we have understood
our elemental nature; we must return and guide others to the path of Kung Fu.
Because only self-nature and life-destiny are important. All else is illusion.”
