Stillness Movement Qigong (Jing Dong Gong)
March’s theme: Tree Communication
This class will focus around the Qigong practices that connect with trees. Tree Qigong is a centuries old Chinese meditation art. For this class a living cedar tree will be brought into class and we will share in group dynamic meditation with it in different forms. Tree Qigong and Standing Qigong are the two practices that will be used to explore the deep inter-relationship we share with our tree relatives. Trees have much to share if we are open and sensitive enough to listen. Methods for tree qigong communication techniques will be shared in class. Some of my deepest teachers in this life have been trees. Personal tree wisdom stories will be shared that highlight the unique longevity lessons trees can teach us towards both internal organ balance and inner peace.

History of the Golden Summit:
The Golden Summit Monastery rests at the peak of Mt. Emei, the highest and holiest of Buddhist mountains in China. Almost a millennium ago, 3,600 schools of Taoist, Buddhist, Confucianism, and folk magic from across China were filtered by the monk Bai Yu in deep meditation. Only the high level teachings of each tradition were kept and the low level illusions were tossed away. The culmination of what remained birthed a Qigong lineage that was passed on secretly for almost 800 years.
In the 20th century, the abbot of the Golden Summit Yong Yan made a decision that would change history. He trained a layperson for the first time in the complete temple lineage with the intention of spreading Qigong publicly across China for the betterment of all of humanity.
That layperson was General Zhou Qian Chuan, the grand teacher of my master Michael Lomax, lineage holder of the Stillness Movement Jing Dong Gong system.
“Qigong is more than simply the study of energy. In addition to being the single most profound form of preventative and healing medicine, the practice of Qigong is a way of life, a way of attaining our highest spiritual goals, a way of attaining knowledge of who we really are and what we are supposed to be doing on this earth” – Master Michael Lomax
