Nei Gong Level 1

17th – 18th February 2018


  • Taught by Damo Mitchell and senior students
  • Two days working through the Nei Gong process using various Qi Gong methods

On this two day long event Damo will be teaching the Nei Gong process. Focus will be on the first level of practice which is essentially concerned with consolidation of the lower Dan Tian, circulation of Qi through the major channels of the body and clearing the body of negative energetic influences.

There are various tools and exercises within Lotus Nei Gong’s syllabus and on a course such as this tools will be selected which are most relevant to the needs and ability level of the students in attendance. Rather than focusing on teaching a specific exercise set, Damo will focus on the process involved in the practice of Nei Gong and select which exercises are to be taught on the day.

Practices at level 1 may include may include:

  • Structural principles
  • Ji Ben Qi Gong
  • Wu Xing Qi Gong
  • Wu Dao Yin
  • Dragon Dao Yin
  • Standing practices

Other exercises not included in the list may be selected. Alongside this there will be relevant theoretical lectures and use of direct transmission to help with internal development.

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

Level 1 Events


Level 1 Events are Nei Gong events focusing upon the foundation level skills of building structure, opening the channels, consolidating the lower Dan Tian and purging the body of excess pathogens. If a student trains diligently it can take around three years of training at this level to build a solid foundation. It is these courses that are open to the public though it is worth noting that they tend to fill up very quickly so you should book early to avoid disappointment.
