Doors open Friday at 6:30pm; Saturday & Sunday at 9:30am

We will do rounds of movements, breathing, and meditation. Qigong Master Robert Peng will lead will 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 the Insight Meditation Center).  The meditation will be "Small Heavenly Circuit" (sometimes known as Microcosmic Orbit) from Shaolin Buddhism and Open Focus Meditation (derived from Zen Buddhism). We will do the small heavenly circuit with both moderate fire and strong fire (the latter means with coherent breathing).  Chanting and other practices may be used to further enhance the group experience.  We will finish with an ancient group healing process. 

Appropriate for practitioners of all levels.

*Saturday and Sunday are meant to be taken as a single unit; Friday can be taken separately or in addition to the weekend.

Teacher support: Suggested starting donation is $15 for evening and afternoon events and $30 for daylongs but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  All donations go to support the teacher(s).  Learn more about this practice of generosity to teachers here.
