The nine Yuan Qigong methods form a central part of Ren Xue and work on many levels. Beginning with Gathering Qi (Tian Yuan), Yuan Qigong introduces the practitioner to Ren Xue through movement and stillness. You’ll learn to recognize Qi and its movements and will begin to change your focus from external to internal. Methods 1 through 6 focus on the body and Qi, increasing the quality, quantity, and flow of Qi. The final three methods focus on opening the heart and connecting to the True Self. Although it is not essential to practice Yuan Qigong in conjunction with these workshops, you may find doing so is helpful.
