Zhan Zhuang/Qigong Foundations
March 5, 2013, Tuesday, 10am to 6pm
This seminar sets the foundation for many healing, self-cultivation, and spiritual work. Too often neglected, these postures constitute the structure without which many practices cannot be done. How do you start? What do you do? What is the position of the spine, the pillar of many practices? The paradigm will be set up in this workshop so that you will see what is the Daoist Body, the energetic relationship of different energy centers. Important concepts are discussed and performed: body positioning, alignment, breathing, emptiness, the dantian, qi, and transformation. Included: Embracing the Tree, Opening Tai Ji, Heaven and Earth, Dai Mai Circle, Pushing. This subject is strongly suggested and recommended for those who are taking Tai Chi Chuan Daoren or any other meditative and healing work.
Tai Chi Chuan Daoren
March 6, 2013, Wednesday, 10am to 6pm
Tai Chi Chuan DaoRen is a short version based on the Traditional Yang Family form. Requiring little space and time, it contains the 4 classical temple core movements of Tai Chi Chuan. Its unhurried pace promotes relaxation, centering, joy, calmness, gentleness, and inner peace. Tai Chi Chuan DaoRen begins with a Qigong signature movement that draws energy from Heaven and Earth and activates the Dan Tian (Field of Elixir) center. After 40 years of practicing the art, Rene J. Navarro choreographed this form showing the reality of energy as the student moves from posture to posture repeated in a counterclockwise direction. The form takes you to different levels of experience the way Tai Chi Chuan should be done: magical, playful, joyous and shamanic.
Rene J. Navarro, Dipl. (NCCAOM) is an acupuncturist, herbalist, martial artist, healer, published writer, and poet.
