“Join Damo Mitchell for Online Workshops & Retreats”

~ Join us Online ~

During the Covid period, we changed our teaching to Online via Zoom. Now that the world has opened up once more, Damo has returned to teaching in person. Because we made contact with people around the world when we were teaching on Zoom, we wish to keep contact with them and so we will continue to offer some weekend events on Zoom and these can be found below.

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 step by step courses in Nei Gong, Alchemy, Taiji, Baguazhang, and Daoist studies.

Internal Striking

Power for Taiji & Bagua

More Details

Over the course of this weekend event, Damo will be teaching the principles and methods of striking (punching) within the internal arts of Taiji & Bagua. Students will study the concept of power development and efficient body usage as we move from soft/hard methods through to fully internal striking using the inner mechanics of both main internal systems.

Though obviously relevant to those interested in thew combative side of the arts, this weekend will also be relevant to those who are interested in efficiency of body usage and the internal arts in general as we shall explore some of the deeper and lesser known mechanisms behind effective body control.

Whilst the techniques will be demonstrated with a partner, the vast majority of the course will be aimed at solo practice in order for students to get the most out of the course via the medium of Zoom.

Subjects covered:

1 – The basics of external striking in Chinese Gong Fu

2 – Principles of combative body usage

3 – Soft/hard, mixed style striking

4 – Striking in Taiji using inner mechanism

5 – Striking in Baguazhang using inner mechanism

6 – Release, energetics and psychology of striking

The course will be streamed via Zoom at the following times:

Session 1 – 8am – 10:30am3

Session 2 – 12:30am – 3pm

Total of 5 hours tuition per day x 2 days = 10 hours

These are UK times. 

This event is open to Lotus Nei Gong and Internal Arts Academy members. Please contact us at the usual place to join this event.

Qi Needling – 1

Qi Gong for Acupuncture

More Details

Over two days, Damo will be teaching the fundamentals of Qi Needling for Acupuncturists. More than a technical method, acupuncture has the potential to be a form of energetic practice and connection between doctor and patient. 

The methods for Qi needling are actually pretty involved and so, over two days, Damo will guide practitioners into the first stages of the method as it was taught to him. This will involve development of the therapists own Qi, connection to the needle and connection to the patient. 

We shall aim to cover:

1 – Development of practitioners Qi

2 – Needle Qi Gong

3 – Connection to patient

4 – Simple application of Needle Qi Gong

If therapists take to this kind of practice, there is scope for there t0 be further training on this esoteric subject at a later date. 

The course will be streamed via Zoom at the following times:

Session 1 – 8am – 10:30am3

Session 2 – 12:30am – 3pm

Total of 5 hours tuition per day x 2 days = 10 hours

These are UK times. 

This event is open to Lotus Nei Gong and Internal Arts Academy members who are also either practitioners or students of Chinese medicine. Please contact us at the usual place to join this event.

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!!
