Circling & Spiraling
Summer Internal Arts: Circling & Spiraling to Open the Body & Balance the Emotions & Fire Element
August 11th 2007
With Gio Maschio
*This seminar will include methods from Twisting and Spiraling Qigong (Cloud hands and the 3 Swings) and from Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong – Taoism’s premiere longevity qigong.
In the Internal Arts, Summer is the time when you encourage the strong and vigorous opening of springtime into a regular flow. Opening continues, but it smoothes, fills and stabilizes, like a summers day. This completes the body and its energy’s yearly opening process so that this bodily and energetic openness is better maintained throughout autumn and winter. Equally, it enables a practitioner to release anxiety from their systems and avoid it swinging into its opposite – exhaustion – later in the year.
The smooth circling, twisting and spiraling movements of Twisting and Spiraling Qigong and Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong are especially suited to enable the practitioner to remove the ‘buzz’ and yet complete the opening of their body, energy and emotions.
