Earth Element Qi Gong

Five Element practices are a bedrock of traditional Water method arts training, allowing you to connect to and draw upon vast stores of energy from the environment and deep within yourself for health and vitality. The Earth Element embodies the principle of integration, which initiates the spherical, pul­sating flow of energy, integrating and balancing the whole mind-body-energy matrix. This quality is echoed by the Taoist teaching, “Everything is in the Earth”.

Gods Playing in the Clouds Qi Gong

Over three weekends, we will explore the essential internal-energetic principles and applications of the Earth Element through practice of Gods Playing in the Clouds Qi Gong.

Gods Qi Gong was traditionally practised by adepts to unify all 16 nei gong threads into a single weave. For the modern seeker, Gods Qi Gong serves as a set of movements that can contain and integrate all of the nei gong you have activated and embedded in your system, amplifying training results. Over time and with ongoing practise, you will solidify what you know and any weaknesses or missing content will be revealed. This sets the framework for developing the art of nei gong and Self.

  • New students will learn the six movements of Gods Playing in the Clouds Qi Gong with a specific focus on deepening nei gong and embodying the energies of Water, Wood and Earth.
  • Existing Gods Qi Gong practitioners will refine and upgrade their form with a specific focus on deepening nei gong and embodying the energies of Water, Wood and Earth.

Metal Element Spinal Nei Gong

The energy of Metal governs the spine, which connects every part of your physical body and becomes one of the “leaders” of deep internal motion.

Over three Mondays, we will explore methods for waking up, connecting to and increasing your ability to exercise your spine at ever-deeper levels of refinement. Internal techniques will then be folded into the movements of Gods Playing in the Clouds Qi Gong. Movement 7 will be taught to those attending the series.

Prerequisites: Weekend attendance is required to ensure a deep yet safe training experience.

Each course is a part of the whole yet contains a complete practice unto itself, so you may attend the series or any one-off course. Although Paul aims to provide a deep, energetic teaching each weekend, beginners and new students are welcome as these are core Water method practices that he encourages all students to train.
