Breath of Life: 2 day Workshop with Master Junfeng Li

200.00

Prerequisite: To benefit from this training, you should first have trained in Sheng Zhen Healing Qigong, Stages One and Two, and one standing form, such as Heaven Nature Gong, or Heart Mind as One.

Breath of Life is one form of Sheng Zhen Gong. Sheng Zhen means Unconditional Love. In Sheng Zhen philosophy, Love is the basic and original energy from the universe. Qi comes from Love and is also a basic and original energy. If no Love, no Qi. If no Qi, no life. 

The quality of the breath reflects the efficiency of the qi as it moves in the human body. When you befriend your breath and are comfortable with it, you befriend the qi. Movement in any form of Sheng Zhen Gong helps regulate the balance of qi which is reflected in the breath. That is why, in the practice of Sheng Zhen Gong, there is no need to control the breath because it is a natural outcome of the work of the qi in the body. One never controls the breath in order to control the qi. It is the qi that determines the quality of the breath. 

When one focuses on the breath it is done as a tool to focus on something to quiet the mind because within the breath is the sacred sound of the vibration of the qi. The rhythmic pattern of the breath lulls the mind and the body into relaxation. The relaxation allows the qi to work. But when the breath is not yet in balance, it is better to shift one’s attention to the movement or the direction of the flow of the qi rather than create further tension from focusing on the uneven breathing.

Asthma and other lung ailments is a result of many factors, one of which is wanting to control the flow of life – control the flow of qi. The more able one is in letting go and surrendering to the flow, the more efficiently the lungs will work and the more balanced the breath. When one can embrace life fully, it becomes easier for the lungs to fulfill its function – its function to engage in the exchange of qi. 

Those who are born into the world with the predisposition to lung ailments have come into the world with the particular challenge to learn to embrace life with its symphony of ups and downs and to learn to give as well as to receive. That is why two individuals from the same family living in the came city may have different reactions to the same air they breathe. More than any other organ in the body, the lungs benefit from Wuji Yuan Gong when done with the practice of xiuxing (the practice of self-inquiry and the action that follows). 

The lungs serve as a work station that processes the air the body breathes in for its needs. There are muscles and tissues that support this tireless human engine. What propels this engine and the surrounding tissues is the qi. For those who are generally well, this healing qigong will help maintain the efficiency of the lungs in the midst of the unhealthy air found in most cities today. But more importantly, it assists the lungs in its qigong function. The lungs are always in a state of exchange – breathing in, breathing out, receiving qi, giving qi. When the qi in the lungs is in balance, what follows is the harmony of the giving of oneself and the ability to embrace what life has to offer fearlessly. 

This advanced gong is best practiced when there is already a foundation of practicing Sheng Zhen Healing Gong Parts One and Two and at least one standing form. To derive the most benefit from this form, an interest beyond the physical practice and into a spiritual practice is encouraged. This allows for healing at a deeper level. In addition to being good for general health, this will also help the practitioner have a deeper understanding about oneself and about life. It is also best to practice Sheng Zhen Healing Gong Part One immediately before practicing this form.
