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

Jing and Sexuality

The Nature of Essence

More Details

Over two days, Damo will deliver clear teachings on the nature of Jing (essence) and sexuality according to Daoist teachings. 

In modern times, there has been a distortion of many of the teachings which were passed down through alchemical traditions and consequently there is a great deal of fear and confusion around the subjects of Jing and sexuality. This is a real shame as many of the classcial Daoist teachings have the potential to provide great insight into human existence; health, spirituality and energetics. On this weekend course, Damo will explore the nature of Jing as well as the classical ‘bedroom teachings’ of Daoism. The aim is for students of the internal arts to develop an in-depth and accurate knowledge of Jing, sexuality and dual-cultivation according to traditional teachings. 

Pleae note that this course will be discussing subjects that some people may find uncomfortable. It is also a very theory-heavy course with the majority of the lessons taking the form of detailed theoretical lectures. The practices taught on the course will be based around strengthening Jing and Qi. There will be no partner Qigong exercises or sexual methods, these subjects are only discussed theoretically. 

The time table for the course will be:

Each day (21-22 August)

8-10 am – Lesson 1

12-2 pm – Lesson 2

4-6 pm – Lesson 3

Classes are conducted over Zoom and links will be sent out closer to the time.

Please note, that this event is only open to those who are either existing members of the Lotus Nei Gong School, those who have trained with us previously or to those who are subscribed members of the Internal Arts Academy.

Autumn Course

Nei Gong & Yang Sheng

More Details

During this course, we will be connecting with the energy of autumn, to help lead us into winter time in a more beneficial way. Autumn is the time of the year to “breathe out and let go”, it’s the equivalent to the evening time of the day. During this season it is especially beneficial to regulate our breathing and the lungs, due to this time period and energy of the organ being linked via the metal element.

During the course, we will spend some time creating more space in the tissues around the chest in different ways, and also giving our breath time to regulate and improve its quality and efficiency.
When we nourish the lungs; the acquired energy anchors deeper into the body, it calms and regulates the mind and tonifies one of our energy storehouses – the kidneys. The following season of winter is linked to the kidneys, so in this way it helps lead us into the winter time in a better way. Being able to rejuvenate and restore our deeper energy reservoirs, to then be ready to sprout with new energy and growth in the spring.

We will be using a mix of breath work, Nei Gong and Yang Sheng Fa to regulate and tonify the energy during this course.

Date:
10-12th Sep 2021

Timetable:

Friday: 6:30-8:30pm
Saturday: 10-12am, 3-5pm, 7-8:30pm
Sunday: 10-12:00pm

All times are in UK time. If Roni makes it out to Asia before this event, the timetable will change to match the layout of Damo’s courses.

Cost: 70€ 

If you are interested in booking a space, please email Dana on LNGbookings@gmail.com.

Please note, that this event is only open to those who are either existing members of the Lotus Nei Gong School, those who have trained with us previously or to those who are subscribed members of the Internal Arts Academy.

Understanding Change

Yi Jing & Divination

More Details

For three days (Fri-Sun) Damo will be looking at the nature and use of the Yi Jing (I Ching) as a tool for understanding change and developing the quality of wisdom. More than simply a tool for divination, the Yi Jing is a practice method which serves to restructure the way in which a person interacts with and understands life. 

On this event, Damo will be focusing most heavily on the nature of ritual and ceremony in relationship to the Yi Jing. Theoretical lectures will discuess the way in which the Yi Jing is formed whilst practice will be based in developing connection to the Yi Jing, the energetics of the practice and the nature of yarrow stalk usage. 

Note that this course will be a lot more esoteric than many of Damo’s other events and, as such, those with a distaste for the ‘woo’ should not apply.

The time table for the course will be:

Each day (15-17 October)

8-10 am – Lesson 1

12-2 pm – Lesson 2

4-6 pm – Lesson 3

Classes are conducted over Zoom and links will be sent out closer to the time.

Please note, that this event is only open to those who are either existing members of the Lotus Nei Gong School, those who have trained with us previously or to those who are subscribed members of the Internal Arts Academy.

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!!
