Daoist Nei Gong

11th – 15th May, 2019

San Ramon, California, USA

Course Overview

Damo Mitchell has spent the last three decades studying the internal arts with a focus upon the internal mechanisms that sit behind arts such as Qi Gong, Nei Gong and the alchemical meditation of Daoism. The basis for these practices is actuated development of both the conventional and ‘internal’ aspects of our human anatomy. These include elements of our body such as the Dan Tian, the channel system and the various regions of our body involved in the development and processing of Qi. Over the years, Damo has taught many students around the world and has developed a name for himself as somebody who can tangibly aid people in learning how to locate, awaken and develop their ‘internal system’ so that the doorway of the internal arts is opened for them.

On this five day long event, Damo (aided by senior students) will lead participants into development of the internal body and teach various tools to aid them in the development of the three treasures of Jing, Qi and Shen. The focus will be on a combination of Nei Gong, Qi Gong and meditation methods. Some of the work will involve sitting whilst we shall also look at standing and moving Qi Gong exercises as well.

This is listed as a ‘level 1’ event meaning that it is open to all practitioners of the arts. Level 2 students will also have access to more advanced methods on this course as well as we shall, at times, divide the group up according to personal experience.

The material in this event will match the theory taught in Damo’s book: A Comprehensive Guide to Daoist Nei Gong, published by Singing Dragon.



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.
