The Basic Principles of Wild Goose Qigong,
Hoylake, Wirral, 2-3 August
The main part of this inspiring weekend was using the Spiral and Tripod form (Wild
Goose Qigong 4) to illustrate the basic principles of Wild Goose Qigong. It was a
well attended weekend and the venue was Hoylake Community Centre which is right on
the sea front - and ideal setting for qigong.
It is always useful to revisit each form with Dr, Bingkun Hu since new aspects always
are brought out. I had done this form with him previously in 2006 but I felt l got
so much more out of the workshop this time.
This was Dr. Bingkun Hu’s first four-day workshop in the UK and I think the participants
felt the benefit of a longer course. My body felt really well after the course. This
was also the first time Dr. Hu taught this form, also known as Wild Goose Qigong
2, in the UK.
Dr. Bingkun Hu first taught this in 2005 but every time he teaches it different aspects
are emphasised. This time he focused on the principle of continually shifting weight
in Wild Goose qigong in order to enhance relaxation. As always the day was interspersed
with other practices such as some of his Twelve Treasures, Tracing the Twelve Meridians,
and Tracing the Yin and Yang Hand Meridians along with the Reverse Microcosmic Orbit.
Wild Goose Soft Palms Qigong Workshop, Bolton, Lancashire, 11-12 August
For the first time Dr. Hu taught the Soft Palms Qigong in UK. This involved faster
movements than the Basic Training and the focus was on the Centre-Periphery Principle.
The first two parts of Wild Goose meditation 6 were also taught in this workshop.
