White Crane Healing Arts News

Season’s Greetings Everyone
The winter solstice on Dec. 21st, is the first day of winter, but it is also recognized as the return of light in many different cultures . Although the earth is farthest from the sun this time of year, the solstice marks the halfway point when the earth starts to tilt towards the sun and the days become longer. In the Taoist tradition this is considered the light within the darkness (yang within yin). It’s helpful to remember that even though there are times when it seems the darkness in the world is determined to envelop us, the seed of light is always present. Also, just as yin cannot exist without yang, darkness cannot exist without light. In your travels this holiday season, take note of the decorative lights as a symbolic reminder to keep the light within. The more we collectively nurture our inner light, the brighter our existence on the earth will be.

We have some great activities in December and the New Year. See event listings below! Also, in this newsletter, we are highlighting some of the items in our Earth Shop.

Mycoherb -Mushroom Extracts

  • The number of mushroom species is currently estimated at 140,000, with only 14,000 named as a species, and known to science. Mushrooms provide a link for us with the Taoist sages of ancient China who leaned on Reishi-carved staffs and shared the same magnetic attraction to those medicinal fungi. The sages revered these herbs because they protected their health and increased their longevity.
  • Extracts of Reishi, Shitake, Tremella and other single or combined formulas for enhancing immunity, improving respiratory functioning, enhancing endurance and stamina and other healing qualities are available. Some by special order only!

GOD’S PLAYING IN THE CLOUDS – qigong review class
Experienced and New Students Welcome. Class Fee: $10.00

NEW! 10 week session begins Thursday, January 14th. 2010
God’s Playing in the Clouds is one of the most valuable practices for longevity and aging with energy. It is an advanced nei gung practice consisting of six simple movements with internal mind-body interactions and physical bio-mechanical connections that are subtle and sophisticated. This practice was the only chi gung set practiced by Grandmaster Liu Hung Chieh in his eighties. He was a lineage disciple of the founder of Wu style tai chi and teacher of Bruce Frantzis.

This is a beginning and foundational class. Emphasis will be on understanding the mechanics of the movement and depending on the class experience, appropriate components of nei gung principles. One aspect of this movement is the development of foundational skills for meditative practice.
$15.00 per class

Instructor Frank Iborra has over 38 yrs. experience in the Asian movement arts, is a licensed and certified acupuncture physician, certified movement instructor, and Taoist student & mentor

No pre-requisite or prior experience is necessary.

Class Fee: $15.00

TAO Yoga – NEW 10 week Session begins Sunday, January 17th. 2010
Tao Yoga is a form of Chi Gung. All chi gung forms are basically energy work for developing the power to heal. The practices taught at White Crane come from a 3000 yr. old Taoist system and are simple to learn yet sophisticated in their application.

How does TAO Yoga differ from Hatha Yoga?
Hatha Yoga uses postures or asanas and breath control (pranayama) to energize subtle channels (nadis). Tao yoga uses gentle movements and breath to move and balance chi. In Hatha yoga you stretch in order to relax, whereas in TAO yoga, you relax in order to stretch. You find the point that is around 70% of your physical extension or range of motion, then relax the body, mind and spirit.

TAO Yoga chi gung can improve hatha or any yoga practice because the internal training tunes the body to feel how the different poses are affecting the deep physical and emotional layers. Chi Gung’s emphasis on moderation and softening give the nerves the ability to release the muscles so that the body gains the flexibility needed to get into and hold the yoga postures. Awareness of chi movement or prana energy is also increased to prevent overstretching which can lead to injuries.

The goal of is to progressively incorporate all the principles of internal Chi Gung (nei gung) within each posture. This includes releasing blocked energy at points within the channels, pulsing the fluids in your joints, internal organs and spinal vertebrae; and manipulating the energy within your etheric field or aura. As always, the emphasis in Taoist practice is towards the spiritual.

This series of classes will be taught in two levels for beginners and those with some experience in TAO yoga. The class will also explore healing with sound, chanting, singing bowls and tuning forks.

Class Fee: $15.00 a class
