DAY 721. Teacup Palm Qigong yesterday, early morning, last day of the Qigong + Tea Immersion. I was offline all day, as I do Sundays, and already feeling the vibrations of focused practice coming in strong. . In the full day of practice that followed this recording, we cultivated a level of Qi refinement that I hadn’t yet experienced ever before, apart from those bewildering times by myself deep in wilderness. By the time of our last hour, with four of us deep in Gongfu Cha and the other four of us moving in silent Five Element Qigong form, all was awash in harmony. . Deep bows to @allmattersofspirit @janeannethomas @taliamigliaccio @prismofthreads @eveladyapples @_ay.am_ and all the other radiant people who made this weekend such potent medicine. . To get on the list to be the first to know about upcoming workshops, immersions, and retreats I’ll be offering, DM me your email address. . If you’d like to learn Qigong from me you don’t have to be in New Mexico— you can learn with me online. I offer a Pay What You Like subscription series and you’ll get a new Qigong Lesson Film every month. Sign up for the Qigong Lesson Film Subscription Series via Patreon.com/breafisher {Link in bio}. .

DAY 741. My parents got married this day forty years ago and they are more in love than ever. . This is a variation on Master Liu He’s form, Activate the Lungs by Cupping Qi (Form Notes are in the comments below). “This movement activates the lung Qi, which disperses the Wei Qi, or energy of our immune system, over the surface of the body. [Wei Qi] acts as our first defense against negative Qi. When the lungs aren’t working well, Wei Qi cannot protect us from external pathogens.” —Master Liu He .

Doing the Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic - 易筋经 – as preparation for clinical massage therapy training here at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic was supposedly taught by Bodhidharma in the 5th of 6th century to monks of the Shaolin temple. Bodhidharma, himself from India, brought Buddhism to China and as such is called the first patriarch of Chinese Buddhism and Zen. It’s fair to say the Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic is a type of external elixir Qigong – 外丹 – in the sense that it is using tension to condition the limbs. The version of the Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic taught to me shares many principles with Tai Chi - relaxing the muscles, opening the joints; extending the head; sinking the shoulders and elbows; relaxing the waist; opening the pelvis; abdominal breathing, the ‘peng’ structure etc. This allows increased blood circulation, particularly in the hands and feet, as well as a stretching of connective tissue in lines from finger to toe. This stretching thickens, strengthens and engenders elasticity in the connective tissue, as well as structurally connecting the body together as a whole, making it perfect training for a clinical massage therapist. The Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic differs from Tai Chi in many respects. The Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic is primarily practiced for health, rather than the development of martial skill. Like Yoga or other similar training methods, tension in a relaxed body leads awareness and energy to specific places in the body, whereas in Tai Chi the entire body is relaxed and force is pushed up from the floor into a body aligned to allow the waist to revolve and the limbs to follow it. Tai Chi is not about building up energy in the limbs through tension and awareness, whereas the Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic is. The Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic differs again from internal elixir Qigong –内丹 – or Daoist Alchemy. In Daoist Alchemy bioelectricity is stored in the epigastric region and released in a direct electrical current. The Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic serves as a good way to strengthen the body in preparation for Daoist Alchemy.

SHAOLIN TEMPLE They let me leave the Shaolin Temple. Right after I after I snatched the pebble from the Monk. This is a joke in reference to the old t.v. show called Kung Fu, with David Carradjine. No disrespect intended to China, as the people are amazing and China is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The Shaolin Temple I was lucky enough to visit on my second trip to China as my Chinese friend asked his brother to drive me 4 hours up the mountain. Thank you David and please say thank you to your brother. This was the perfect way to end the week. Every city has enormous parks that are in constant use by the general public.. The Shaolin Temple is way up in the mountains and I believe it is actually multiple parks in the same area, as was the case in Nanjing and more. On my first China trip, Beijing had so much to see, even after 3 days we were so busy we showed up late for our flight and had to get from the North to the South of town that night and we puddle jumped out of the military airport in the morning to our next city. #shaolintemple #songshanmountain #dengfeng #china #gongfu #kungfu #mma #mixedmartialarts #martialarts #budhism #budhist #darmqcave #travel #visa #karate #taekwondo #bjj #jiujitsu #muaythai #kickboxing #boxing #fitnesstraining #fitnesstrainer #fitness #buddha

I remember someone telling me of a tradition where you purchase a pu erh cake from the year you were born, and then you drink it every year only on your birthday. Does anyone know where I can find a well produced cake from 1993, or have I waited too long? #imagedescription a peanut teapet ( @meileaf_don I got the little weird peanut, too!)

I left Georgia today. Leaving Seattle meant that I may never see some of the people I care about there. Leaving Georgia means I won’t see my nieces for at least a year (which is a long time when you’re younger than 5) I’m excited to start the last leg of the road trip to Florida but this has been a bitter sweet journey from the start. My PopPop built my kick wheel. When I get back I’ll use it for making cups and trimming pots. . . . . .

Kung Fu is skillful living. It is the art of intentional nurturing and the steady improvement of all aspects of life. It informs our quan, our yoga, our zen, our sweeping off the back deck. It is the sweetness of sunset and the bitterness of hard training; the depth of Samadhi and simplicity of a cup of tea. #insighttaiji #qigong #qigonglife #taijiquan #dao #peacefulwarrior #taichi #daishinzen #kriyayoga #obxtaiji. #obxqigong #bodhisattva #gongfu

Finally getting my first taste of the 2007 Huangshan Lingya from Yang Qing Hai today. I'm not too worried about sussing out flavors on this first tasting, though I will say it is very warming and relaxing. The hype is real!
