Qigong Levels One and Two
with Acharya Suzann Duquette
Calm the mind and rejuvenate the body with this ancient Chinese art, according to the lineage of Dr Eva Wong. Eva Wong is the lineage carrier of Zhen's Xuankong Flying Stars Feng Shui and Sanyuan (Three Periods) Feng Shui.
Acharya Suzann Duquette has been authorized by Dr Eva Wong to teach Qigong Levels 1 and 2.
In level 1 students will be in instructed in various techniques of outer and inner qigong. Outer qigong is concerned with strengthening the muscular-skeletal system - joints, muscles, tendons, bones, and spinal column. Techniques of tendon changing, marrow washing, self-massage, and calisthenics will be taught. Inner qigong is concerned with nourishing the internal organs and cultivating qi, or internal energy. Students will learn Chen Xiyi's sleeping and walking qigong and Wang Xiangzhai's standing qigong.
In level 2 the focus will be on tendon changing and self-massage. The Twelve Devas Tendon-Changing system and the Nine Self-massage system will be taught in entirety.
There are no prerequisites for this program; however, students must register for both levels. Students are also expected to understand that they should not teach any form of Xiantianwujimen or Yiquan Qigong without permission from Dr. Wong.
