Chi Kung For Health, Volume Two
Six Basic Seated Meditations
Terry Dunn teaches six basic meditations of the Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong, a subset called "Monk Serves Wine." Exercises One through Three are extremely simple but powerful preparatory meditations that instantly mobilize qi in the upper body and bring it into awareness. Each exercise begins with a short breath-control sequence followed by either one movement or no movement at all.
Exercises Four through Six are simple and elegant sequences of natural upper body movements done in the half-lotus position. Each is performed with total relaxation in set of seven repetitions following a breath-control sequence performed once. The Flying Phoenix seated exercises develop control over basic energy pathways governed by eyes, mind, movement and breath, and ultimately bring all organ functions under the regulation of the subconscious mind. The most common reaction of practitioners experiencing the energizing effects the seated meditations for the first time is "I can't believe a human being invented these exercises." (60 min.)
