paul dorrianZhan Zhuang (‘Standing like a Tree’) Chi - Gung is unlike most other Chi – Gung styles, in that with the exception of changing from one static posture to the next, the practitioner remains absolutely still, developing a mind like still water. Regarded by many contemporary Masters as the most powerful of all Chi – Gung practices, it opens all of the nine energy portals in the body, and encourages one’s chi (life force) to flow powerfully throughout one’s entire being. In this retreat Paul will teach the Four Posture Zhan Zhuang Set, which assists in developing a strong physical structure as well as creating a greater supply of healing chi to promote health and vitality.
