Master Chung will teach the complete first form and in the last 3 days more the advanced single movements. He will also introduce Standing Meditation, a simple yet most powerful form of meditation. With our physical body aligned in a particular way and held mostly still, the chi (life-force energy) is stimulated to find its natural rhythm as it flows through the meridians, gently dissolving any blockages that may have been preventing this. During the course Master Chung will also teach the Pushing Hands exercise and the Chinese massage technique of the energy channels.
