DAY 1 – Transforming Stress into Vitality

Inner Smile

In this meditation we cultivate the hearts healing energy of love, joy and happiness with a simple smile. We then direct this energy inside and use it to reconnect with our physical and emotional body’s. In the west we know love comes from the heart in Chinese theory each organ stores positive virtues and by focusing on these organs and their positive energies we bring more of those qualities into our lives. Imagine what it would feel like to have a little more courage, wisdom, love, peace and trust in your life.

6 Healing Sounds

In Chinese medicine the organs are not just  responsible for the virtues but negative emotions as well, each organ stores an associated negative emotion. With the 6 Healing Sounds and specific movements you can clear negative emotions and energetically detoxify the organs. Recycling the trapped energy brings about an increase in energy and a sense of peace and balance. Great to use before bed to get a good nights sleep or as a quick way to transform in the moment unwanted negative emotions into usable energy.

6 Directions

In this Chi Kung form you expand your mind and connect with the 6 directions releasing the build up of day to day pressures. Once connected you draw in the energy of each direction building the energy in your centre. You then learn to light the 3 internal fires of the body improving digestion and feeding the heart, intestines and kidneys. This Chi Kung form increases your sense of connection, your internal store of energy and grounds you firmly in the centre of your universe.


DAY 2 – The Microcosmic Orbit

This meditation works with deep constitutional energy and is the foundation on which many later practices are built. During the opening process you learn to connect the main back and front acupuncture channels, which function as reservoirs of energy.  By connecting the two into one circuit, this deeply nourishing chi can be circulated pass your major organs and through the nervous system to all the cells. This brings them energy necessary for growth, healing and normal function.

With these techniques you are able to

  • Take control of your own energetic and spiritual self development
  • Cultivate more energy, happiness and better health
  • Transform negative emotions into positive virtues
  • Feel grounded, centred and balanced in your daily life

These are the first steps on the path to taking control of your own mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being and development
