Flying Phoenix Qigong w/Sifu Terence Dunn | Eastover Estate & Eco Village | Thursday, 30. April 2020

FLYING PHOENIX QIGONG with Master Terry Dunn is an intensive Qigong workshop that teaches participants the essential core practice of Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi (Fei Feng San Gung), a rare and extraordinarily powerful medical Qigong system created more than 400 years ago by Taoist sage named Feng Teh of Ehrmei Mountain in Xichuan province in western China. Flying Phoenix Qigong is a complete Taoist monastic system of hygienics --comprised of standing and seated, stationary and moving meditations that imparts a wide range of salient health benefits: increased respiratory power, improved circulation and metabolism, well-regulated sleep and resulting higher energy levels, improved neuro-muscular function and balance, strengthened immunity, increased bone strength, and the allostatic reversal of many signs of aging.  Besides its splendid health benefits, Flying Phoenix Qigong training so sublimely integrates mind and body to a higher level of structural sensitivity--by bringing all the organ functions under the regulation of the subconscious mind—that it stabilizes full absorption-jhana and trains one-pointedness (samadhi) so that the practitioner’s mind easily rests in the second and third jhanic states. (FP Qigong is also so systemically sensitizing that strict safeguards must be observed as to where and when one practices the art so as to prevent any type of sudden interruption.) Additional dates Aug. 29-Sept. 3. Please see our website for more information and a link to the program schedule.

"Because of the great interest in Qigong in the west, it is important to have bona fide teachings by bona fide teachers. Too often students wind up learning a little bit of this form and a little bit of another, while never learning any complete system. This series is a good example of a serious and gifted instructor who offers a complete system of healing qigong to the serious student." -- Solala Towler, Editor, The Empty Vessel -- Journal of Contemporary Taoism
