Dragon Dao Yin and Nei Gong
7-10 September 2019
Frederick, Maryland, United States
Over four days, Damo, his wife Roni and a couple of the senior students from the European school of Lotus Nei Gong International will be teaching students the foundations of Nei Gong and Dao Yin with an emphasis upon the Dragon Dao Yin exercises. The exact content of the course will adjust according to the experience level of the students in attendance with newcomers being taught the foundations of the art whilst longer term practitioners will look at deeper nuances of internal practice.
The first day of the training will look at how to develop the body and breath as well as the foundations of Dao Yin practice whilst days two and three will look in greater detail at the Dragon Dao Yin exercises; a series of movements designed to help purge the body of stagnant Xie Qi. This is the basis of health development according to Dao Yin teachings, which is an important aspect of Nei Gong training.
For the fourth day, women-specific Nei Gong training will be looked at. This will be for women in attendance as well as those male students who may want to join this class in order to understand women’s practice in order to develop their own knowledge base. This may include male teachers of the arts as obviously, male teachers also need to have an understanding of women’s internal work. Those students who do not wish to undertake female-specific practice will train in material more relevant to their own practice.
The timetable for the course is as follows:
- Day 1 – 9am until 5pm – Foundations of Nei Gong and Qi Gong training.
- Day 2 – 9am until 5pm – Dragon Dao Yin training
- Day 3 – 9am until 5pm – Dragon Dao Yin training
- Day 4 – Women-specific training for those who wish and further Nei Gong training for other students
The classes are taught by Damo Mitchell and Roni Edlund and we shall take a short break for lunch each day.
Much of the material taught over these four days will match the information contained within the following books written by Damo Mitchell:

This course is listed as being relevant for level 1 students. This means that beginners are welcome on this event though it is also suitable for longer term 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.
