We will do rounds of movements, breathing, and meditation. Qigong Master Robert Peng will lead flowing meditative movements ones from the "Eight Cycles" of Elixir Light Qigong (from the Shaolin Buddhist tradition). The breath work will mainly be a fusion of yoga, Qigong and Russian orthodox technique (similar to what Dr. Brown has taught previously at NYI). The meditation will be "Small Heavenly Circuit" (sometimes known as Microcosmic Orbit) from Shaolin Buddhism and Open Focus Meditation (derived from Zen Buddhism). Chanting and other practices may be used to further enhance the group experience. We will finish with an ancient group healing process not previously taught at NYI.
Appropriate for practitioners of all levels.
