(31 minutes) QIGONG FLOW FOR HEALTHY CONFIDENCE is a fun and dynamic routine that empowers the emotional virtue of winter called zhi. Zhi means will power and is governed by the kidneys. In the chakra system is it the 3rd chakra. When one's will power is weak one generally lacks ambition and has low self esteem. When one's will power is too aggressive or "over willful" there can be arrogance, egotism, over ambition and eventually burnout. A healthy state of will power brings an alignment with the right relationship to all beings and a natural sense of confidence that promotes peace.

(27:42 minutes) The weather pattern and pathogen associated with winter is cold (han 寒). Our winter purge and cleanse practices are a series of invigorating qigong exercises that move stagnation, warm the internal organs (especially the kidneys) move the blood and warm the qi in the xia dantian, the lower dantian. We’ll also use pai da, tapping, to open key acupressure points on the kidney and bladder meridian to unblock and open our internal energetic pathways creating a sense of relaxation and inner peace. Movements focus on cleansing the kidneys and bladder as well as clearing and strengthening the wei qi field to prevent colds and flus.
Practice purging qigong on days when you feel extra tension in the body, stress, emotional imbalance, fear, cold hands and feet, lethargic, or have stiffness in the muscles and joints.

(30 minutes) To tonify means to strengthen, support and nourish the qi. In Chinese this is called Yang Qi Fa (Nourish Qi Method). Because winter corresponds to the kidneys and the kidneys store our reserve qi, it is an important time to "nourish the storage" and give extra support to the kidneys, and the blood.

The energy point on the body for nourishing the kidneys is the mingmen or life gate. The ming men is like a switch that regulates the flow of vital qi through the body and balances the kidney yin and kidney yang energy. The mingmen and the lower dantian are closely related: any exercise that builds the energy of the dantian also strengthens the ming men. Therefor our tonification exercises this season are slower and gentle meditative movements that focus on building internal energy in the lower dantain and mingmen. A nap or still meditation after this practice is highly recommended.

When should I choose to do a tonification routine?
Most everyone can benefit from tonification qigong. Those who should be careful with tonification are those who are in an acute stage of a flu, virus or disease. There are specific tonification exercises for diseases such as cancer that focus in on specific organs and these should be prescribed through personal consultation with a medical qigong doctor.

(28 minutes) The element of winter is water. Water has the tendency to sink downwards, expressing winters energy of closing and storage. Recent studies on bio-electricity pose the theory that qi is conducted through the water-gel substance that connects our tissues, called fascia. When our body is fluid and water flows, we are healthy and full of qi. If our internal waterways become stagnant, illness arises. Circulation qigong use flowing movements, breath and mental intention to nourish the tissues, energize organs, recycle internal energy, refine the qi and irrigate the meridian pathways. One interesting side effect you may notice after qigong and meditation is an increase of saliva in the mouth. This is a good sign of qi circulation!

The energy in our bodies flows through numerous channels called meridians. The meridians can also be likened to rivers. The mother of all rivers is called the Central Meridian Channel (Zhong mai). I It is the main conduit of energy in our energy system. The Central Meridian channel runs through the core of your body from the crown of the head through the pelvic floor to the earth. This line was formed at conception. It is called the primitive streak.

When energy flows freely through the central meridian channel all its tributaries benefit. In our Winter Series Circulate routine, we focus on circulating qi through the central meridian channel. Then we will direct the flow through the kidney and bladder meridians. The routine finishes with the Small Heavenly Circuit, moving energy through the du mai and ren mai.

When should I choose to do a circulation routine?

Circulation routines are a more advanced form of qigong practice that ultimately uses the mind to guide the qi. Choose circulation practices when you have an ample amount of qi and are ready to raise and refine your frequency. In other words, circulate when you feel good and have fun doing it! Your body should be internally cleansed and balanced before circulating energy. There should also be an ample amount of qi in the lower dantian before doing circulation practices. If you feel tired or weak, it is not a time to circulate qi, unless advised by your personal TCM doctor or qigong teacher. The exception to this is the microcosmic orbit practice which helps cleanse, balance and refine the qi. It is still advised to cultivate sufficient qi in the lower dantian before doing the microcosmic orbit on a regular basis.

(39 minutes) The energy of winter is closing and storage. All of nature becomes still and is in a state of hibernation.
