Level 2, Bone Marrow Washing QiGong
Bone Marrow Washing Qigong is more Yin in nature, and works deeper on the energetic body, focusing on the Jing/Essence, Blood, Bone Marrow and Central Nervous System. The feeling is more grounding and less energizing than the Level one - Breath qigong course. The meditations focus on awakening the 3 Dantians and balancing the yin organs and their energies. The philosophy focuses on Taoist cosmology and how it applies to human energetic and spiritual anatomy and physiology. It clarifies the mystery of Taoist internal alchemy.
Health practitioners are exposed to turbid Qi, toxins, and pathogens on a daily basis, which has made this QiGong especially popular among chinese medical practitioners and massage therapists for it’s proven effects of detoxifying and purifying the body. It was traditionally taught in the Shaolin temple and has been kept more secretive than the widely known Shaolin tendon and ligament strengthening QiGong (Yi Jin Jing). The reason being, Bone Marrow Washing is considered to be a very powerful spiritual qigong in addition to its healing abilities when practiced correctly. Students learn to go deeper into the QiGong state by combining meditation and mantras with movement and breath.
