ONLINE WORKSHOPS

Join Damo Mitchell for Online Workshops & Retreats

~ Join us Online ~

Due to the nature of Damo’s worldwide schedule, and also in light of recent situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, Lotus Nei Gong have decided to put a few select courses and workshops online so that everyone can have access to Damo’s live teachings and instruction.  These events of course will in no way ever replace Damo’s in-person events, but we hope that they can most certainly bridge the gap for those who are unable to travel for the moment or in the future.

Please see a list of Damo’s online events below, with details of how to access them and how they work, and please also visit www.damomitchell.com if you are interested in our online academy, which includes hundreds of hours of lecture footage and numerous stem by step courses in Nei Gong, Alchemy, Taiji, Baguazhang, and Daoist studies.

Energetics of Sound Work

Daoist Energy Work & Qi Gong

More Details

It is understood within spiritual practice that sound exists on many levels. How sound manifests will vary depending upon how we learn to connect with and use it. The surface or ‘expressive’ level of sound is that which we may hear or interpret but sound also exists on various non-manifest levels. These hidden or ‘submerged’ aspects of sound are the levels which are utilised within traditions such as Daoism, Hinduism and Buddhism. At the root of all creation lay the potential for a seed sound and this is what will be explored in this workshop. Many of the misconceptions around sound work will be rectified and a practical methodology for developing connection to the subtler roots of sound will be explored. 

The timetable for this event will be:

Harmonising of Five Phases

Daoist Alchemical Work

More Details

Within alchemical methods and teachings, there are various stages of development. These are stages such as ‘establishing the cauldron’ or ‘igniting the furnace’. Whilst these foundation stages are often discussed, work with ‘harmonising the fire phases’ is not so readily taught or understood. In this four day event, Damo will explore the meaning of this stage of the practice and show it is applied to both Qigong and alchemical training. Halfway between meditative and energetic practice, this course will delve deep into Daoist theory of personal development and evolution. This in-depth event will be a mixture of seated moving and static work combined with intricate theoretical lectures on the nature of mind, soul and spirit.

The timetable for this event will be:

Friday February19th
3-5pm

Saturday February 20th
7am – 9am
11am – 1pm

Mastering the Breath

The Root of Inner Work

More Details

Rather than being the goal in and of itself, work with the breath is designed to give a person access to the subtler realms of energy contained within the astral layers of being. As a bridge may carry one across a river, the breath may be used to convey a persons awareness from that which is physical to that which is more subtle. In this two-day event, Damo will explore the nature of the breath within internal work, how it is used as a tool/bridge within arts such as Qigong and meditation and various ways to effectively develop your breathing methods. Unusually for Damo’s teachings, Damo will depart a little from Daoism here and introduce breath work from a couple of other traditions he is involved with. 

The timetable for this event will be:

Saturday March 20th
7am – 9am
11am – 1pm
3pm – 5pm

Sunday March 21st
7am – 9am
11am – 1pm
3pm – 5pm

I personally find it very difficult to attend Damo’s workshops in person due to the travel involved and my own teaching schedule, but having the option to attend his workshops online is fantastic.  The classes are just amazing, and it is so easy to log on and attend a class as if I am in the room with Damo and his teachers.  Thank you so much for the opportunity for Zoom classes!!
