Wuji (Primordial) Qigong was created by Zhang San Feng, a Daoist master and legendary 800 years ago, in the Wudang Mountains. This ancient magical Daoist qigong form combines circular movement, breathing and visualization, stimulating the flow of qi (vital force) for health, longevity and spiritual opening.
By working with the primal energies of the five directions and the qualities of each—(East: The Green Dragon, South: The Red Phoenix, West: TheWhiteTiger, North: The Black Turtle and Center: The Yellow Dragon)—the practitioner is performing an energetic ritual that has been done for hundreds of years. The movements, done in a circling pattern, guide us into a powerful and primordial state of grace and healing. This class is open to beginners as well as experienced students of Qigong and will include basic Qigong theory, movement, Daoist cosmology, Daoist stories, music and healing meditation. And, of course, Tea!
