This 21-day Spark program is intended to help you understand, practice and learn this ancient art of Chi Gong and its principles. It will give you a systematic introduction to this very unique Daoist Wudang 5 Element (Animal) Chi Gong. (Wu Xing QiGong)
Chi Gong basically means Energy Work - this practice aims to rebalance the 5 internal energies in the body. Usually known as the Five Elements, Wu Xing is also named the Five Movements, Five Phrases or Five Steps. The 5 elements are jin (metal), mu (wood), shui (water), huo (fire), tu (earth). Chinese five elements in daily life were regarded as the foundation of everything in the universe. Fire melts metal; metal chops wood; wood break up earth; earth absorbs water; water quenches fire.
Each organ also correlates with a certain emotion that may be responsible for creating a blockage or obstruction to the energy flow in the body and thus impeding that organ's proper function or causing an issue in the body somewhere along the corresponding meridian.
