Nei Gong – Level 2 Training
7th – 8th May 2018
- Taught by Damo Mitchell
- Only those students eligible to train at Level 2 able to book onto these events. Please see guidance on this below if you are unsure as to eligibility
Once students have completed their foundation training at level 1 there is the option to continue deeper into the Nei Gong syllabus by learning material from our second level. Our Nei Gong system is divided into three stages of complexity to enable students to develop a strong basis at each stage and then progress systematically towards expertise in the internal arts.
At the second level of Nei Gong training students have already opened the channels of the body and built a solid structure. The lower Dan Tian should be consolidated and a great deal of the purging should have been done. Now it is time to start accessing the internal environment of the body with deeper practice. The aim is now to generate a healthy and strong central channel, build up more Qi within the body and then pressurise this Qi to assist in its mobilisation and use. Practice of advanced Dao Yin exercises then help to direct the pressurised Qi through deeper channels of the body. Channels we will need at the third stage for alchemical advancement.
Practices at level 2 may include:
- Zhan Zhuang and Ding Shi practice
- Inwardly directed sound work and advanced Mantra practice
- Exercises at Level 2
- San Yuan Qi Gong
- Heng O Dao Yin
- Dan Tian Gong at Level 2
- Ba Xian Dao Yin
On a level 2 Nei Gong day we generally start with structural practice and ‘accessing the insides’ through static and moving Qi Gong exercises. From there we tend to focus on one aspect of the level 2 syllabus other exercises from the list above. Only when students are ready so we begin the compressing of Qi and study of the Ba Xian exercises.
The course takes place over a weekend in Schooley Mill Park, in Maryland, USA
12975 Hall Shop Rd, Highland, MD 20777, USA
The cost of the days training is: 150 USD
The days run from 9am until 5pm with an hour’s break for lunch. Students should find local accommodation in the area.
The Nei Gong process taught by Damo Mitchell and Lotus Nei Gong is a classical process and is, at times, very strong. For this reason we do not recommend that anybody with psychological disorders or those with serious medical issues/needs attend these events. There are many ‘medical’ Qi Gong schools out there that would be more appropriate for these kinds of needs. Nei Gong is also not suitable for pregnant women or anybody under the age of 18 years old. Lastly we reserve the right to ask any student to leave the training immediately if we deem the training to be unsuitable for them or a risk to their well-being
US Level 2 Training
Level 2 courses in the US are only open to those who have completed a QGC training program with us. This two and a half year long structured course enables us to ensure that students have successfully completed the foundations of our practice. This makes them safe and competent enough to engage with the more complex and powerful methods at level 2. At a later stage, students who have had the personal ‘go ahead’ from their own qualified teacher in the US may also attend.
