Heaven & Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands

Chicago, IL, United States
10 November 2017 - 12 November 2017

We are excited to announce Bruce Frantzis is returning to teach in Chicago this Fall!

In China, Bruce found no other simple exercise as powerful as Heaven and Earth Qigong for promoting health and vitality. It is used in China to relieve back, neck and joint problems and to mitigate conditions such as arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. This training will explore Heaven and Earth’s qi-based methods of bending and stretching the body's tissues, opening and closing (pulsing) the body’s joints and cavities, and circulating energy (micro- & macrocosmic orbits). 

During the course of the weekend Bruce will also give a brief introduction to the practice of Tai Chi Circling Hands™, primarily focusing on the practice of Vertical Circling Hands. Circling Hands offers an easy and dynamic way to learn the external movement principles and internal qi practices that generate the deep healing potential of Heaven & Earth Qigong and Tai chi.

Pay at the door: $350

Registration/Check-in: November 10, Friday 5:30 PM--First class session begins at 6:30 PM.

Prerequisites:  Everyone is welcome, there is no specific requirement for attending the seminar. Read more...

Bend the Bow Qigong and Bagua Meditations

El Cerrito, CA, United States
17 November 2017 - 19 November 2017

Bend the Bow is a powerful practice for consciously strengthening and regenerating the spine. In China, this form is used to control spinal energy and vertebral movement, it can be especially helpful in relieving back problems. At its most sophisticated level, individuals can learn to move each vertebra in any direction at will--techniques not believed to be possible in Western medicine.

Learning to control the alignments and flow of chi in your spinal vertebrae is the path to a happy and healthy back and neck. Join us for this special and rarely offered course.

Special Announcement: Bruce will be teaching a Bagua Meditations course on Friday evening of the weekend workshop. Worldly life is filled with anxiety, excessive mental and emotional churning. All of which derive from the yin and yang qualities of the mind and body being out of balance. This course will show you the bagua practice methods used to balance your internal reality. Enabling problems such as these to cease damaging the quality of your life.

All of this is based on using circle walking and the movement changes of bagua to flow between the yin and yang aspects of your life with less stress and discomfort. These meditation methods balance the yin and yang qualities of your mind for example: hope/fear, confidence/internally collapsing, anger/compassion and other polarized states of being. Bagua meditation practice groups will be offered outside of class time throughout the weekend (Sat/Sun) if there is sufficient group interest.

Price after Oct 10: $350

Registration/Check-in: Nov 17 (Friday), 6:00 PM--First class session is 6:30-9:00PM.

Approximate daily course schedule on Nov 18-19 (Sat-Sun) is is 10:00AM-5:00PM with a two hour lunch break. Course schedule may be subject to change depending upon group dynamics.

Prerequisites: All levels welcome.
