The Training

During this 8-day intensive (60+hours of training!), you will be able to train and relax in a beautiful environment, surrounded by friends from different countries. You will deepen your understanding of yourself, as well as your relationship with the world around you.

Every day will include a mix of solo and partner training with morning, afternoon and evening sessions. We will look at whole body movement, while flowing in the Six Directions and Three Dimensions.

We will use Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin’s Zhong Xin Dao approach to recognize and realize the conditions as they are, their limits, the process of change, and the nature of awareness itself. We will train to see that each movement, each application, is merely an effect of the process of balancing yourself, propelled through your own Unification of the Mental and Physical.

Early Morning Training: Qigong and Meditation
In Zhong Xin Dao we train to be present in order to see the moment itself, to recognize things as they are. We work with Mental Balance and Physical Balance. The mental balance is Mindfulness, the concentration of attention to be still, so that we may see clearly. Meditation is a direct observation with attention. Every day before breakfast you will have the opportunity to open your body and still your mind with an hour of qigong and meditation, the ideal environment to develop the right quality of attention required to train.

Morning Training: Flowing in the 6 Directions and Three Dimensions
Every morning you will focus on a selections of exercises from our curriculum. Each exercise was designed as a vehicle through which you may see, recognize and realize the principles of Nature in action. This training will help you to recognize and flow with continuous change, while being conscious of your own structure, relaxation, and energy.

We will learn to use Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin’s Five Platforms of Zhong Xin Dao as a guide with which to recognize and understand the characteristics and functions of own minds and bodies. We will to use mindfulness as a tool to see the nature of the body itself, and to allow it to guide us. By unifying ourselves through this practice, we will optimize the flow of our own movement and breath.

Afternoon Training: Flowing with Partners
Each afternoon we will review the exercises from the morning and look at maintaining our flow of attention as we work with a variety of partners. We will look at how to train to unify our minds and bodies while working with partners. We will look at how to concepts such as:

  • Relaxation & Alignment
  • Looseness, Softness, & Elasticity
  • Fullness & Emptiness
  • Circles with Rotation
  • Four Strategies
  • Three Qualities of Engagement

Early Evening Training: Grading Preparation

If you are new to Zhong Xin Dao I Liq Chuan, you are welcome to join the first group and review the grading requirements along with everyone else.
