Five Elements Qigong: Water Element

30 October 2017

This seminar is part in a series on the Five Elements taught at the Tai Chi Schule in Ulm/Neu Ulm by Taoist Lineage Master Bruce Frantzis.

According to Five Element theory everything in the Universe is composed of five elemental energies: metal, water, wood, fire and earth. The energy of the Water Element in your body particularly affects your kidneys, bone marrow and brain as well as your ability to move through feelings of fear and shock.

Bruce will draw on his practical knowledge of the Five Elements gained through his Qigong training in China to teach practical exercises to develop a feel for the energy of the Water element. The Water element is also associated with the winter season, deep vitality, courage and the ability to be fully present in your body.

Price: €120
Price after Sep 20: €140

I first met Bruce in 1992, as a 17 year old, I had all sorts of fantasies about becoming strong and learning to defend myself. Bruce taught me that through hard work and daily practice a world of incredible depth and peace can be found within the art of Ba Gua Zhang that goes far beyond the ability to knock out King Kong.
