Golden Summit: Monthly Qigong Temple
Heaven's Gift: This month's temple will focus on the Qigong practices and wisdom centered around our connection with Heaven. This is not Heaven from a religious or dogmatic sense, but Heaven from an energetic polarity perspective. Chinese medical wisdom views Earth as Yin and Heaven as Yang energy. This class will focus on the practices that strenghten our connection to the Heaven energy above us translating to empowered health, peace and creativity. Come enter Golden Summit Qigong Temple and experience a wider spectrum of our authentic energy self. The Golden Summit Monastery rests at the peak of Mt. Emei, the highest and holiest of Buddhist mountains in China. Almost a millennium ago, 3,600 schools of Taoist, Buddhist, Confucianism, folk magic from across China were filtered by the monk Bai Yu in deep meditation. Only the high level teachings of each tradition were kept and the low level illusions were tossed away. The culmination of what remained birthed a Qigong lineage that was passed on secretly for almost 800 years. In the 20th century, the abbot of the Golden Summit Yong Yan made a decision that would change history, he trained a lay person for the first time in the complete temple lineage with the intention of spreading Qigong publicly across China for the betterment of all of humanity. That lay person was General Zhou Qian Chuan, the grand teacher of my master Michael Lomax, lineage holder of the Stillness Movement Jing Dong Gong system. "Qigong is more than simply the study of energy. In addition to being the single most profound form of preventative and healing medicine, the practice of Qigong is a way of life, a way of attaining our highest spiritual goals, a way of attaining knowledge of who we really are and what we are supposed to be doing on this earth" - Master Michael Lomax Golden Summit Monthly Qigong Temple presents a 4 hour monthly space every 4th Saturday to dive deep into the accumulated wisdom and longevity methods of the Jing Dong Gong Lineage.
