Description of The Microcosmic Orbit – Daoist Qi Gong Meditation
One of the foundations of cultivation in Daoism is Yangsheng – nurturing life – which incorporates a number of disciplines, such as dietetics, daoyin/qigong, meditation, and lifestyle practices.
Intrinsic to its focus is the relevance of the shen-physique and the ongoing jiao-exchange between the shen-physique and the shen-spirit which can be achieved through physical or mental feedback.
Among these feedback practices is xiao zhou tian (lesser circulation of heaven) or more popularly, referred to as the microcosmic orbit – a classical Qi Gong meditation technique with the mental concentration on specific areas/acupuncture points on the body.
Its regular practice serves as a foundation to mental clarity, healing illnesses, and spiritual development. This evening talk explores the healing dynamics of the microcosmic orbit, as well as orientating participants into its practice.
