Da Lohan Qigong
August 18, 2008
Greg Winder, one of my old friends, who is also a Lohan Qigong practitioner and a great artist, has done a series of beautiful drawing on the Da Lohan Qigong form. You can find out more about Greg’s work in his blog: http://greg.exblog.jp/by Master Chen Yong-Fa, after the Lohan 18 Hands and the Siu Lohan form and before Tai Git Kuen (Taijiquan) and Mo Git Kuen (Wujiquan).
It uses the mind intent and visualization as main means of circulating the vital qi in the body, hence there is little movement comparatively speaking and the form is done sitting in a meditational posture but strictly speaking it is not meditation in the true sense. It is a Qigong exercise because the aim is to move the Qiby making Yin Yang with movement, breathing and conscious striving, rather than just watching your breath and emptying the mind.
