Donald and Cheryl Lynne Rubbo will be teaching these profound systems at their May 2006 workshops and at the retreat:
Primordial Qigong - A three dimensional physical mandala, encompassing all of the primary aspects of Taoist philosophy: the concepts of yin and yang, the trinity (heaven, earth and man), the Five Element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the I Ching, the Bagua and the mystical aspects of numbers.
Healing Hands Qigong - Qi cultivation techniques to create powerful healing energy emitted through the hands.
Bright Smile of Spontaneously Present Joy - A simple, powerful, profound practice for generating compassion and loving kindness, essential components to healing oneself and others.
Five Element Balancing Qigong - Bring your body/mind/spirit into harmony. Each component of our bodies has a relationship with all aspects of nature: element, color, direction, season, sound and a negative and positive emotion. Practicing this method of healing daily will transform your life.
