Hun Yuan Teacher Training ICQG
Level 1 The Basic Protocol
The Institute of Contemporary Qi Gong ICQG
London, is the research and development wing of
Master Ma Ba Guo and Master Chris Ray Chappell. It is a collaborative work spanning two cultures which
blends experiential traditional Chinese Qi Gong with groundbreaking anatomical research. Our foundation
training is a stand alone module to help people begin a career in teaching Hun Yuan Qi Gong and provides
a ground breaking approach to learning energetic self bodywork. The information taught is not
available in book form and is not in the public domain.. The general Internal Arts paradigm is about to
change for ever.
The anatomy of bodily change
We believe that is vitally important practitioners to have a practical grounding in the functional anatomy of
Qi Gong. You will learn visual skills a balancing skills from both a Qi Gong perspective and from a western
bodywork perspective. Learn exactly how you can develop the famed internal strength of the old masters.
What is it? Why is it good for health ? Learn why the arms and legs can pull your core out of position.
Learn and experience core energy and core movement and how the Hun Yuan Qi Gong approach
differs from other Qi Gong. Also learn how and why many modern exercise methods can increase ego
fixation by raising too much energy and leading to a form of exercise neurosis.
General Myths and Misconceptions in the Internal Arts
What defines a Qi Gong? What is internal training? Learn why hollowing the chest can be extremely damaging,
learn why suspending for the head is an anatomical joke! Learn how tucking the pelvis can compress
the pelvic bones, weaken your back and hurt the knees. Learn how visualization can be extremely
is dangerous. The question to ask is this? Do I really want to learn about (Qi - energy) or do I need to explore
and understand my body better to achieve this.
