Reviews

  • “A great Teacher of Qigong, it was a privilege to take this course! I could feel the Qi moving while performing each exercise. Quick response to questions asked, much appreciated! I look forward to taking more courses in the future. Humble thanks!”
  • “I have been doing qigong and taichi for years, and I find the course simple and at the same time meticulous. Structured in a simple way to learn and at the time for thanks to the different sections.”
  • “Another good course from Des Lawton. From the course introduction and explanation of terms which are nice and clear, to the well structured lessons with lots of detail of what to focus on which enhances the exercises the course is well authored. Des is certainly well versed in Qi gong and has a good presentation manner which makes learning enjoyable. For me this course has enhanced my understanding of the workings of Qi gong and will improve my practice of other forms. I would recommend this course to both beginners and experienced practitioners as it is written and presented in such a way as to be easily followed by either.”
  • “Clear instruction and demonstrations. Feel the chi when do the movements. Each movement has multiple parts. Plenty of follow along repetitions and tips to get the patterns. Thanks.”
  • “Excellent explanation of the subtleties of wu ji. I felt an immediate shift while practicing under the guidance in this video. Alot of these subtleties are overlooked, but here they are explained with great clarity. Thank you for creating this course!”
  • “I found this course to be well organized and well presented, by an instructor who clearly embodies the Qigong he has learned. The content is excellent. Thank you.”
  • “Thanks Des-I’ve been ‘practising’ Tai chi and qigong for many years and not been taught properly and was confused by the flowery language that often seemed more like poetry than guidelines.Your two current online courses turn theory into application and precise practice in very effective ways for me.I look forward to absorbing this knowledge at a gentle pace;so it’s great to have it available whenever I need it.”

What Will I Learn?

  • Create a quiet body/mind by using Wuji stance.
  • Practice three Qigong exercises that work specifically with the Extraordinary Meridians, the Exceptional Vessels.

Requirements

  • No previous knowledge of Qigong required. This course is suitable for all levels.

Description

These Qigong exercises work with the Qi that is stored in the Eight Exceptional Vessels (aka the Extraordinary Meridians). These vessels are often likened to reservoirs that store Qi and blood while the Meridians can be likened to rivers that carry the Qi.

As well as using the Yi (that is the brain), the eyes and the breath to guide the Qi, these exercises also make use of the Master Points and the Coupled Points.

The quality, essence, of the Qi of the Exceptional Vessels is tangibly different to that of the Twelve Meridians. These exercises will open out an opportunity for you to experience this for yourself.

Reviews

  • “Very clearly and concisely explained.”
  • “Introduction to self and Qigong very clear and understandable. The explanation of key words by text where the learner can review them later is very helpful, (also a good reminder for experienced learners). Breakdown of the moves were very well explained and gave ample time to practise. Explanations were very clear and understandable and directions easy to follow. Demonstration of the full movement was again very clear to follow and gave ample time to practice. Overall I feel this course was well put together, well presented and met the expectations. Course is ideal for both beginning and experienced learners, I myself was reminded of many aspects in relation to my Qigong practice which is always helpful. Having attended courses delivered in person by Des Lawton I can see that he has applied the same open indepth instruction here as he does in person. I would recommend this course to those new to Qigong and experienced practitioners.”
  • “Course is well structured and very detailed, using the methods taught in the syllabus I feel more confident of my practice of this qigong sequence and have a better understanding of the internal aspects of the practice to focus the mind to develop my practice. The individual break down of each movement is very helpful and gives you the internal meridian points to focus your mind on as you perform each movement, the completed sequence is very calming and I can already feel improved reduction in tension throughout the body the longer I perform the movements. The listening exercises are interesting and the changes in sensations vary with time and focus during practice . I would highly recommend this course for beginners and experienced qigong practitioners.”
  • “Very comprehensive and multi-layered:a real masterclass!”
  • “He’s very thorough”
  • “Excellent course. Clear and detailed video instruction building up the set/sequence slowly and carefully. Great student support. A real sense of one-to-one teaching with a personal touch from an expert.”
  • “Easy to understand. Now need to put it into practice.”
  • “this course is excellent! the pace is perfect with detailed instructions, the camera angles of the instructor, along with the meridian lines and points are also very helpful. The instructor is 100% knowledgeable and sincere.”
  • “As a complete beginner to Qigong the pace, explanation and content is well presented and easy to understand. “
  • “enjoyed course learned several things I did not know even though I have been practising Tai Chi for a number of years”
  • “Excellent course. The instructor is very knowledgeable, and explains all aspects of qigong very thoroughly. I would definitely recommend this course.”
  • ” found this course to reinforce the best of what I have learned over the last four years of serious (or should I say light-hearted) Qigong practice and study. The teaching is thorough and well-spoken. I appreciate the time the instructor takes to have the student experience each component of the teaching without any sense of rush – just as it should be! Thank you.”
  • “These are wonderful forms. The teaching is very clear. Anyone who practices qigung seriously should experience this form.”
  • “very clear explanations setting the outline and expectations clearly and encouraging participants to continue. the illustrations during the movement sequences were particularly helpful”
  • “Excellent information and, rarely shared insight about the subject!”
  • “Clear instruction and demonstrations. I could feel the chi after doing the movements.”
  • “An absolute gem of a course which I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking to begin, or to improve, the practice of Qigong. A very knowledgable, experienced instructor communicates what you need to know, in a natural, friendly, understandable way. Detailed images show important focal points on the body, and video footage gives a superbly clear demonstration of how to do the physical movements – the excercises shown both frontally, and in profile. The most common beginner’s errors are explained, as well as how to correct them, and the deeper experience that comes through repeated practice is intimated, but left to the individual to discover freely for themselves. Navigation back and forth to refer to various points is so easy, the content so well organised, that the result is a truly flexible, effective learning tool – and a resource you can keep and refer back to anytime! The instructor responds promptly and fully to any questions about the course matter too, so it’s as near as you could wish to having one-to-one tuition from a teacher in the privacy of your own home! This course offers an authentic, user-friendly means to enable practice at your own pace, and the reassurance that your instructor is there if you have any doubts or questions. Thank you Des Lawton!”
  • “very simple and clear lecture”
  • “A very simple series of movements to learn from and memorize. Good job!”
  • “This is the best Wuji stance explanation I’ve found. Very very good teacher. I am happy and grateful that I found him. He explains all in detail and slowly. It is exactly what you need when you are new to this.”
  • “Great course very well delivered in a sincere and freindly manner,thank you.”
  • “Highly regarded both qigong set itself and teaching style…………….. The set and the Teacher are highly recommended.”
  • “Very good. Good explanations, a good breakdown of each move and then a sequence to follow.”
  • “Nice explainations delivered very clearly. Like the glossary of terms.”

 

What Will I Learn?

  • Attain Wuji posture, create a quiet body/mind.
  • The six movements of the Connecting Heaven and Earth Qigong.

Requirements

  • No prior knowledge of Qigong required. This course is for all levels.

Description

This course is for people who are serious about Qigong, no matter what their current level of experience is. It is for people who want to practice true Qigong, to work Internally, rather than practicing slowed down aerobics.

Qigong is an Internal skill with the function of enhancing the practitioner’s Qi (energy) and the flow of Qi within the meridian system and energy body.

The movements and postures that Qigong uses are NOT Qigong in its entirety. They are one of the tools used to guide the Qi………………. just ONE of the tools.

In this course you will learn

  • To create a quiet body/mind through the use of Wuji stance. Poor posture creates distraction, noise, that interferes with the focus needed to guide the Qi.
  • To make use of the subtleties within the movements and postures to accurately guide the Qi.
  • To use the breath to guide the Qi and to help change the brainwave pattern from Beta wave to Alpha wave.
  • To use listening jing in order to gain tangible awareness of the Qi and the changes produced during Qigong. If you do not know what it is that you are meant to be guiding how can you guide it?
  • To become passionate about Qigong.

  • Also learning variant exercises for three of the Elements.

Description

Also known as the Five Taoist Yin, the name of this set is a bit of a misnomer as there are six yin meridians and these exercises work with, were designed to work with, all six.  A more accurate name might be the Taoist 5 Elements Yin exercises as the fire Element has two Yin meridians; the Heart Meridian and the Heart Governor meridian.

Both Heart and Heart Governor meridians are worked within the one exercise, either individually, or together.

In this course

  • you will learn how to work with all the Yin meridians
  • you will learn how to get the most benefit from these exercises

We are currently offering a 66% discount on this course. Get your discount here – Coupon

Requirements

Description

The Ten Fundamental Treasures is another, ancient, Qigong that is little seen let alone practiced nowadays.  These treasures share, in name, a number of exercises that are in the Ba duan Jin (The Eight section brocade) and the exercises look similar.  However, the focus in the Ten Fundamental Treasures, the emphasis, is not the same.  I practice both of these sets and they are, internally, completely different.

This course is for intermediate to advanced practitioners and is not really suitable for beginners.  The emphasis, as with all Active Qigong, is on creating internal movement that has been stimulated, in part, by external (that is physical) movement.

Any physical raising, or lowering of the Wuiji stance should secondary.  It is the raising and lowering of the Qi that is important.

The Four Shen Qigong

We are currently offering a 54% discount on this course. Get your discount here – Coupon

Requirements

  • This course is for people who are already serious practitioners of Qigong, people who want to continue on their Qigong journey and take their practice a higher level.
  • Participants need to be familiar and comfortable with Wuji stance and horse riding stance. They should be adept at sinking the Qi and raising the Shen.

What Will I Learn?

  • These are, Spiritual, Qigong………Spiritual in the sense that they work with the consciousness, the Shen…….. They can, among other things, take you to a place of tranquillity where answers can be found, often without questions needing to be asked.

Description

The Four Shen exercises are Active, Spiritual, Qigong. That is to say that the body movement is one of the tools used to help guide the Qi and the exercises are used to alter states of awareness, giving access to higher levels of being and increasing perception.

  • The exercises involve the Shen, that finer quality of Qi that is connected to our consciousness, our Mind, our Higher Self.
  • They entail raising the vibration of the Shen, and the awareness of self, the Qi of our body and mind.
  • They entail awareness of other as our awareness is expanded beyond our physical body.
  • Finally, they allow access to our Higher Self so that we can have meaningful dialogue and receive guidance.

Benefits

These, Spiritual, Qigong can provide the practitioner with a place of respite, an internal quite that removes them from the chaos of daily life.  The first three are from a discrete set and are used to guide you to the centre of the cyclone. The cyclone of egos that life creates and that causes turmoil and stress. It is a place of tranquillity where answers can be found even without questions being asked.

Within this space, the practitioner’s awareness of Qi, of energy, begins to develop. Awareness that can lead to: –

  • Increased tangibility of the Qi and awareness of it throughout the body/mind.
  • The ability to see Qi (energetic body, etc).
  • The ability to taste
  • The ability to smell
  • The ability to hear

In most cases the practitioner will find that they have a dominant sense.

  • Exercise 1 facilitates the Inward journey, the awareness of self.
  • Exercise 2 facilitates the Outward journey, the awareness of other.
  • Exercise 3 raises the vibration of the Shen while strengthening the practitioner’s rooting of the Qi.
  • Exercise 4 is used to open dialogue with your Higher Self, your Shen, or Consciousness.
