Wuji Gong was founded by Zhang San-Feng, the originator of Taijiquan, (Tai Chi) in the Ming Dynasty, some 600 years ago. This ancient magical Daoist qigong form combines movement, breathing and visualization, which stimulates the flow of qi (vital force) for health and longevity. By working with the primal energies of the five directions (including the center) and the qualities of each direction, the practitioner is performing an energetic ritual, one that has been done in China for 600 years. This class is open to beginners as well as experienced students of qigong and will include basic qigong theory, Daoist cosmology, and healing meditation.
