Class: Bone Breathing
Most Westerners believe that a daily physical exercise program helps slow the aging process. Yet those whose bodies appear most physically fit on the outside often enjoy only the same life span as the average non athletic person. It is the internal organs and glands that nourish every function of the body, and it is the bone marrow that nourishes and rejuvenates the organs and glands through the production of blood. By focusing only on the muscles without cultivating the internal organs, bones, and blood, the Western fitness regimen can ultimately exhaust the internal system.
This class follows the teaching of Master Mantak Chia. We will learn the ancient mental and physical Taoist techniques used to “regrow” bone marrow, strengthen the bones, and rejuvenate the organs and glands. This method of absorbing energy into the bones revives the bone marrow and reverses the effects of aging through the techniques of bone breathing, and bone compression, which stimulates the hormonal production that helps prevent osteoporosis.
It is suggested that you begin practice with the Inner Smile Meditation, which you should practice for a month.
Then you should learn the Six Healing Sounds. Again, a month of practice is suggested.
After you have completed these meditations, you can begin the Bone Breathing practice.
