Learn How Internal (Nei Gong) Techniques Give Shape to Qi Gong Forms

In this evening course, Paul will explain how internal content gives shape to qi gong forms. You’ll also learn exercises to help you engage your insides and make your forms truly internal — as the Taoists have practised for millennia to become healthy, vibrant and more at ease with life.

The terms qi gong and nei gong are often used interchangeably; however, qi gong is a blanket term that generally means “energy exercise”; whereas nei gong refers to 16 broad ranging and in-depth internal techniques with each taking many years of dedicated study to embody. (The list of nei gong is pasted below.)

Traditionally, nei gong are practised both individually (as slow-motion, gentle and repetitive movement sequences), and as a part of more complex:

  • Qi gong sets (such as Energy Gates, Heaven and Earth and Gods Qi Gong)
  • Tai chi forms
  • Bagua Circle Walking and Palm Changes
  • Taoist Yoga
  • Sitting meditation practices

In the Water method, all theory and practical training is based on nei gong, the science of energy flows, for health, healing, martial arts and meditation. Each multi-layered energy exercise represents cosmic potential for creating positive transformations in body, mind and qi-energy.

The 16 Nei Gong

This list of nei gong has been paraphrased from The Power of Internal Martial Arts and Chi book with permission granted by Taoist Lineage Holder Bruce Frantzis. No further copying is permitted without his express written consent.

  1. Breathing methods, from simple to complex, taking many years to develop properly.
  2. Developing the ability to feel, move, transform and transmute internal energies along the descending, ascending and connecting energy channels of your body.
  3. Adhering to and maintaining ever-more precise body alignments to prevent the flow of energy from being blocked or dissipated; practising these principles yields exceptional and refined biomechanical alignments.
  4. Dissolving blockages in the physical, energetic, emotional and mental aspects of yourself to strengthen and develop your mind-body-energy matrix.
  5. Moving energy through the main and secondary meridian channels of your body, including the energy gates.
  6. Bending and stretching your body’s soft tissues (including the muscles, tendons ligaments and fascia) and from the inside out and the outside in, along the direction of the yin and yang acupuncture meridian lines.
  7. Opening and closing all parts of your physical body (joints, muscles, soft tissues, internal organs, glands, blood vessels, cerebrospinal system and brain), as well as all aspects of your body’s subtle energy anatomy.
  8. Manipulating the energy of the external aura outside your body.
  9. Making circles and spirals of energy inside your body, controlling the spiraling energy currents of your body, and moving energy to any part of your body at will, especially to the glands, brain and internal organs.
  10. Absorbing energy into and projecting energy away from any part of your body.
  11. Controlling all the energies of your spine.
  12. Gaining control of the left and right energy channels of your body.
  13. Gaining control of the central energy channel of your body.
  14. Learning to develop the capabilities and all the uses of your body’s lower tantien.
  15. Learning to develop the capabilities and all the uses of your body’s upper and middle tantiens.
  16. Connecting every part of your physical and other energetic bodies into one, unified energy.
