Nei Gong Training
22nd – 25th February, 2019
Over four days, Damo Mitchell (assisted by senior students) will explore the practice and principles of Nei Gong according to the classical traditions of China. Structure, governance of internal qualities and various static and moving exercises will be used to help students develop an understanding of the nature of Nei Gong practice.
Nei Gong is a fluid practice with many aspects to it, some adhere to the principles of seeking inner stillness whilst others seek internal awakening and movement. The balance of these two qualities is what the Daoists were seeking when they developed their internal training systems. These ideas will be explored along with practical work involving the Dan Tian, channel system and breath work to help initiate development of Jing, Qi and Shen – the three ‘treasures’ of alchemical practice.
These four days of intensive training will include practical exercises along with in depth theoretical explanations of the Nei Gong process. The material will match the information contained within the book ‘A Comprehensive Guide to Daoist Nei Gong‘ which is published by Singing Dragon.
The Manchester branch of Lotus Nei Gong has been established to go alongside the Chinese medical branch of the school which runs under the name of the Xian Tian College of Chinese Medicine. With the college being based in Manchester, it made sense for there to be a partner school of Nei Gong so that students studying medicine could also benefit from internal work of this nature. It is planned that the partnership of Nei Gong and Chinese medicine in the Manchester area will grow and help develop into a strong centre for the Daoist arts in the city.

This course is being taught by Damo Mitchell and his senior students
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 wish for 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. If any student attends a course such as this with known psychological disorders or medical issues that may put them at risk, they take full responsibility for their actions and any outcomes. Lotus Nei Gong International nor its staff will be held accountable in such instances.
