Eastover, a holistic retreat center located in the heart of the Berkshires, in Lenox, Massachusetts, will host Flying Phoenix QiGong with Master Terry Dunn, August 29 through September 3.
“Because of the great interest in qigong in the West, it is important to have bona fide teachings by bona fide teachers. Too often, students wind up learning a little bit of this form and a little bit of another, while never learning any complete system. This series is a good example of a serious and gifted instructor who offers a complete system of healing qigong to the serious student,” writes Solala Towler, editor of The Empty Vessel: Journal of Contemporary Taoism.
Flying Phoenix QiGong is a three-day and five-day intensive workshop that teaches participants the essential core practice of Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations, a medical qigong system created more than 400 years ago by Taoist sage Feng The, in western China.
“It is a complete Taoist monastic system of hygienics, comprised of standing and seated, stationary and moving meditations that has wide-ranging health benefits, including increased respiratory power, improved circulation and metabolism, well-regulated sleep and resulting higher energy levels, improved neuromuscular function and balance, strengthened immunity, increased bone strength and the allostatic reversal of many signs of aging,” Dunn says. “Besides its splendid health benefits, the training also integrates mind and body to a higher level of structural sensitivity.”
