Vitality Forge Qigong: Metal

Sage of Ageless Wisdom

Choose your constraints
Strengthen your Mountain

Are you going to live a long and profoundly bountiful life by continually improving your harvest, or are you just going to slowly fade away...

Embody YOUR wisdom

The ancient Daoist Sages knew a powerful secret (well lots of them, but this case one in particular touches them all) - stop before you're full.


Is that too simple? For most of us, yes.


"Only ever do anything 90%".


When I read this line in one of Master Hua Ching Ni's books it took me a long time to process it. It was against everything that I'd been told. That the only way to succeed was to go at it 110% (I regularly failed at this and judged myself for it).


The ancient Qigong masters gave a very clear choice: a remarkable life of continual rejuvenation or a standard life of depletion.


It’s amazing really how few people make the rejuvenation choice.


There’s always something more important. Always something else to do. Always another priority.


Caught in the ceaseless doing, the striving for the next thing, the next victory, the next dopamine hit, men run until they stumble.


I’ve been there. I've no doubt you have to.


But as Qigong practitioners we work towards something different.


After many years later I get it. 


We must choose our constraints. We must reap our harvest.


When we choose our constraints, we can work with them. We can master them. We can transcend them. 


And when do the hard work to gather our harvest, to stop and gather, we have time to reflect, to see, to understand, to gather our wisdom.


We master the cycles of nature. We cut away the excess and retrieve our gold.


We have the space to be a co-creator of our destiny, continually more able, more capable, more potent. In every area of life.


Be the Sage. 


When you relentlessly apply the wisdom of the Sage each year, even each day, is better than the last

The Physical practice this term is a series of Gongs, or short practices, woven into a practice that cultivates your Metal energy. 


Practices that strengthen your Mountain.

Build your Will. 


It has some similarity in intent to the Foundations practice - which is Earth Energy - except the focus is on harvesting the Heavenly Qi, the Subtle Rain.


You'll learn to feel immovable, and in that to catalyse the descent of the heavens.
Physically it'll be a vigorous term. 


Stillness constrains Activity
The one masters the many.
Mind shapes Body.
Yang above Yin.

I’m so confident you’ll love this course (and get amazing results) that if you don’t like it or aren’t getting anywhere with the content and are doing the practices consistently, I’ll organise a personal one on one coaching session with you to see if we can shift what’s in the way – and if you're not satisfied I’ll refund any remaining classes.
