Nei Gong Course

22nd – 28th September 2018

  • Taught by Damo Mitchell
  • These longer retreats are a mixture of foundation and more advanced material. Students study the material together and then sometimes groups will be split

On longer courses Damo Mitchell looks in great detail at one or more aspects of the Nei Gong process. Foundation work is covered for newer students and then tuition looks at the classical aspects of Qi development which are essentially based upon cleaning, mobilising, purging and then building Qi within the body. Since the courses are much longer than standard weekend events, Damo draws on various exercises from within his internal syllabus to help students understand Daoist internal work.

Classes are a combination of practical exercises, theoretical lectures and direct transmission. A combination of moving, static and seated exercises are taught on these courses. Practices will be from within the Lotus Nei Gong system with exact material depending upon the needs of the students in attendance on the event.

The Nei Gong process taught by Damo Mitchell and Lotus Nei Gong is a classical process and is, at times, very strong. For this reason we do not recommend that anybody with psychological disorders or those with serious medical issues/needs attend these events. There are many ‘medical’ Qi Gong schools out there that would be more appropriate for these kinds of needs. Nei Gong is also not suitable for pregnant women or anybody under the age of 18 years old. Lastly we reserve the right to ask any student to leave the training immediately if we deem the training to be unsuitable for them or a risk to their well-being
