Michael Winn – Blissful Breathing Qigong (Best Defense vs. COVID-19)
Blissful Breathing Qigong (formerly Ocean, Sky, & Great Heart Breathing) is a wonderfully simple breathing qigong form that I spontaneously developed out of many years of practice. I originally used it late at night, after working on the computer, to clear out any stress before going to sleep (so I could do Taoist dream practice feeling fresh).
I was tired, so I needed something that worked fast. It worked so well – in just five minutes — to clear all my channels and open up deep communication with all levels of the Life Force that I decided to share it. I’ve added it to the Fundamentals 3 level of the training since it relies on breathing cycles.
The breathing cycles moves in sets of three, echoing the Taoist mystical power of three in their cosmology: uniting Heaven, Earth, & Human Sage within us. It joins the 3 energy centers of body (dantian) into One. It transmutes the 3 alchemical Treasures of Essence, Breath, & Spirit (jing, Qi, shen). It captures a feeling of the flow of the 3 types of Qi (yin, yang, yuan). All hidden in the in-breath, the out-breath, and no-breath (pause between breath). Simple, but marvelous in a practical way.
There are nine sets of these simple breathing patterns, each combined with a specific internal intention that boosts the effect of the practice into the stratosphere. My experience of Blissful Breathing Qigong is that one round erases the stress I’ve built up. The second round gets me feeling really good – it fills up my Energy Body “tank”. The third round puts me into bliss, the Qi overlfows inot many levels of my reality.
This is not just me. My students love it. It has become a new favorite.
The qigong taught on the DVD is a moving form, and it’s a nice balance to the standing postures and internal Qi breathing from the audio. In those practices the body is passive, only the breath moves. They are done sitting, lying in bed, or standing. Its wonderful to be able to cultivate a high energy state wherever you are. You never get bored with life. You won’t regret learning Internal Qi Breathing!
