An At-Home Qi-Building Tuning

Constant Bears for 100 days with White Crane Stretches Its Wing and Chest caress self-massage

Special Zoom Class on April 17

With the entire world coping with a pandemic, it is more important than ever for us to work together in unity to heal ourselves and our planet. 

We invite you to join this special healing tuning dedicated to all people. 

1. First, let’s follow Professor Cheng's advice that doing the Constant Bear and Looking Owl 100 times a day for 100 days (in an unbroken thread) will generate better health, stimulate our defensive qi (called wei qi), which protects our lungs) and help improve our well-being.

2. Then, since the coronavirus assaults lungs, add White Crane Stretches its Wing to support our lungs that receive heavenly qi through breathing. Work at your own pace for five minutes (or longer if you like). The goal is to experience the filling of each lung and feel the qi in your body. Conclude when you feel each lung has expanded fully and has brought a sensation of qi, which can be a tingling sensation to your fingers, toes, or any area of your body.

3. Do the chest caress self-massage for 49 downward strokes. You can choose when you would like to do this after the Bear moves, before the Crane, or after the Crane.

4. Then observe: How does your chest feel? Has your breathing expanded? Do you feel more inspired and whole?

5. Finish with a few Constant Bears.

We will begin this tuning right after the spring tuning, to protect ourselves and dedicate time for self-care. We will practice through spring, with its refreshing awakening quality, continuing as more sunlight and warmth support our healing, slowly moving into the peak of summer.

Let’s explore how it will be to commit to a daily routine over several seasons. Let’s practice together from our separate locations and stay united to support all of humanity in this pandemic time. 

Do take care of yourself.
