Soaring Crane Chi Kung
Because of its gracefulness and specific attention focused directly on therapeutic points, the Soaring Crane is a very subtle yet powerful form of Chi Kung. Like the Crane it is quiet and reflective nurturing six main points: round, far, soft, continuous, slow, and happy. The form is broken down into five sections for flowing the chi, and a sixth section that includes an active self directed standing meditation, which invites the practitioner to free themselves of all blockages and engage the body, mind, and spirit in an altered state free-for-all.
The Swimming Dragon Chi Kung originated with the Yellow Emperor and the Soaring Crane was created/developed by Zhao Jin Xiang in the 1970s. Both forms of Chi Kung are popular throughout the world. The Swimming Dragon is based on the Five Elemental Phases, and the Soaring Crane is structured into six sections (with the sixth being the Advanced Meditation).
Included are specific directions for structure, movement and flowing the chi. Instruction featuring Gerald A.
