Description

Although having similar names, the Embroidered Brocade and the Eight Pieces of Brocade (AKA the Ba Duan Jin) are two entirely different sets.  The Embroidered Brocade is a set of seven Qigong exercises, namely:  Folding Over, the Circle of Light, the Billowing Sail, the Sun and the Moon, the White Crane, the Snake, and the Taiji Walk.

The numerous benefits of these exercises include:

  • Stimulating Qi flow in the Yin and Yang meridians of the legs.
  • Stimulating Qi flow in the Arm Yin & Yang meridians.
  • Opening Ming Men and Dazhui (Du Mai 14). AKA “Big Bone” this is the first thoracic vertebra, where the Qi can often get stuck.
  • Bringing awareness of and building the skill of sinking the Qi while raising the Shen.

Practice of the Embroidered Brocade set takes between 20 to 30 minutes.

Who is the target audience?
  • People who are keen to learn true Qigong. That is the Internal work, working with the Qi.

Connecting Heaven and Earth Qigong

I have been practicing Qigong since 1985 and teaching, albeit starting at a very basic level, since 1989.  In 1996, after three and a half years of study with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu, I qualified as a Registered Shiatsu Practitioner.  My previous knowledge of Qigong really helped me with the Shiatsu and, equally, learning Traditional Chinese Medicine as part of the Shiatsu course served to increase my understanding of Qigong. In the late 1990s, it was my good fortune to have been, finally, accepted as an Inner Sanctum student by Master Joseph Bell ( a student and direct lineage descendant of Master Wang Jiu Mei).
