Ch'i Kung (The Healing 18 Lohan Hands)
By Sifu Seng Jeorng Au
Volume 3 is a workout session, starting with the integration set from Volume I and continuing with the 18 Lohan Ch'i Kung Form as shown in Volume II. Very little discussion is offered in this volume, instead concentrating on following along with me and matching the breathing as much as possible with my inhales and exhales. Some tips to enjoying this workout: 1. Find a peaceful protected from the elements place to consistently work on this form.
2. Be mindful of the subtle changes within your body. 3. Strive to breathe slowly and elongate your inhales and exhales. 4. Listen to the sounds of your inhales and exhales 5. Watch your hands - Where attention goes, energy flows. This is one of the Truths of the Universe. 6. Control your movements in the transitions from posture to posture seamlessly so as to foster a moving meditation without abrupt static disruption of Flow. 7. Be mindful of the Expansion/Extension of the whole body as you inhale and the Relaxation/Flexion on the exhale to express the whole body's connection to the Breath. 8. Enjoy and Gift yourself with a "no-hurry" session. Aloha!!!
