E Mei Qigong with Master Shen Jin
This is a rare chance to study the ancient Chinese E Mei exercise system, possibly the origin of Qi Gong, with Shen Jin. Working with her energy gives us a taste of how our mind, body and energy can move powerfully as one.
The E-Mei Qigong system opens the joints and increases energy flow to dissolve old blockages. Each day includes a meditation session. We gain a new sense of how easy it is to just be ourselves.
Originally designed to build strength for fighting and for healing, E Mei offers a way to purify and harmonise our energy. This course is open to all - no previous experience is needed.
Master Shen Jin
Shen Jin was nine when she began to study taijiquan and Qi Gong with her father Dr. Shen Hongxun, the founder of Taijiwuxigong, Buqi and Tianshan style Taijiquan. She has taught Taijiwuxigong, the 12 E Mei Daoyin and Taijiquan TianShan style (medium and small stance) for over thirty years in Europe.
In 1957 one of China’s leading Qi Gong Masters, a TCM Doctor called Zhou Qianchuan published the only known book on E Mei. The classical Chinese poetic text was very hard to understand. He taught E Mei to a small group of students in Beijing and Shanghai from 1955-1957, before his death from political persecution. After the cultural revolution Shen Jin studied E Mei with his assistant, Master Sun Jingtao. She is one of the few E Mei teachers in the world.
The sacred E Mei Mountain is in Sichuan province in Central China. For many dynasties this remote region hid hermits and revolutionaries. Generals and future Emperors, referred to as Tigers and Dragons, spent many years hiding and plotting in these mountains.
The E Mei are traditional buddhist exercises created 1000 years ago. A monk named Rei Yun devised them give strength to local freedom fighters and also improve the bone setters ability to heal. The force developed by E Mei still benefits modern healers and martial artists. It also helps personal healing. By opening the body's energy channels and meridians first physical energy is increased and later spiritual development can follow.
The 12 Daoyin of the E-Mei Mountain - History
The E-Mei Mountain is in Sichuan province, in Central China. This region is marked by high mountains - not easily accessible and this made the area a favourite hiding spot for revolutionaries and rebels of past dynasties. Generals and hopeful future Emperors, often referred to as Tigers and Dragons, spent lengthy periods of time in the mountains, preparing their onslaught against the regime they planned to overthrow.
The 12 Daoyin of the E-Mei are a traditional Buddhist exercise system. About 1000 years ago a monk named Rei Yun devised this highly effective exercise method to train those who fought against the ruling Emperor's army; but these exercises were also used to treat the injuries suffered in combat, and bone setters used the powerful Daoyin to improve their skills.
The exercises are an excellent way to develop physical strength and stamina and thus are very well suited to martial artists. However, the tonifying effect of the exercises means that they can be used to improve health and even to treat some diseases. The powerful force developed during the practice of the E-Mei Daoyin is also very useful for health and body-work, such as massage, etc.
For optimum results, one needs to pay attention to develop the exercises one by one, and each individual exercise stage by stage. Then it is possible to open the body's energy channels and meridians, enabling the practitioner not only to achieve a high level of physical energy but also to develop to a high level of the Chan (Zen) meditation system on the mental plane.
The only written material about the E-Mei Daoyin was in the form of ancient poetry, written in such complex and ancient language that very few people could grasp the meaning of the poems and thus clearly understand and express their ideas.However, in the 1950's, TCM Dr. Zhou Qianchuan published a book in which he clearly explained the elements of some of the poetry in relation to the subject. He also taught the E-Mei system in Beijing and Shanghai.
Each weekend will develop different aspects of mind, body and spirit. There are 8 weekends spread over a two year period to allow time to practice each Daoyin. Each w/end can be taken in it's own right and all are paid separately. Shen Jin is a remarkable teacher and she takes great care to help the development of each student. This year offers a rare chance to study the ancient Chinese E-Mei energy exercise system, said to be the root of QiGong, with Dr Shen's daughter, Shen Jin. Each weekend offers a complete E-Mei Daoyin exercise which can be practiced independently of the other E-Mei exercises.
The weekends are open to all - no previous experience is needed.
