  1. Qigong for Yuanqi
    Friday May 10, 2024 – 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

    In ancient Chinese medical tradition, constitutional qi, or yuanqi, represents a precious asset to be preserved for a long and healthy life. The term “yuan” means source, spring, origin, and signifies the original energy, the ancestral constitutional energy. It is also called the Anterior Heaven energy, transmitted from parents to children at the moment of conception, and partly responsible for an individual’s inherited constitution.

    During the gestational phase, the function of yuanqi is to nourish, shape, and grow the fetus. After birth, it is responsible for the child’s development, along with the Posterior Heaven qi. Thus, yuanqi governs conception but remains a source of life and vitality throughout existence.

    yuanqi cannot be increased but only preserved or consumed as minimally as possible, based on lifestyle. For this reason, it is said to represent the hope of life: the number of breaths and heartbeats one has in their lifetime.

    Ancient Chinese believed that the cultivation of life was linked to the quality of breath, a fundamental element in qigong practice. Breath can be equated to what we now call stress. This is why, in antiquity, it was asserted that emotions had an influence on the length of one’s life. Additionally, breath can be used to balance situations of discomfort resulting from strong emotions.

    Due to its strong connection to the genital system, yuanqi is considered a fundamental element for the protection of the species. It is stored by the Kidney (or more precisely, the mingmen), serving the preservation of the individual and allowing the proper functioning of the Triple Burner, as metabolic transformations occur with the catalyzing action of yuanqi.

    In this seminar, Master Jeffrey Yuen will guide us to become familiar with Chinese health exercises, used for about 5,000 years, to help prevent illness, create harmony and well-being, and live the best possible life. These psycho-physical-spiritual activities, belonging to the Taoist tradition, are used for the enhancement, development, and control of ancestral yuanqi, a deep and constitutional energy that aids individual and creative expressiveness.

  2. The Study of Renmai and Dumai Meridians
    Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12, 2024 – 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

    The seminar is dedicated to the study of the energetic physiopathology and symbolic significance of the meridians belonging to the extraordinary meridian system, namely renmai and dumai. Master Jeffrey Yuen will delve into the meaning and energetic function of various points, with reference to possible combinations and therapeutic strategies useful in clinical practice.

    In the view of Classical Chinese Medicine, the study of meridians and individual acupuncture points should always be traced back to the evolutionary dynamics of the individual, as well as energetic physiopathology.

    The renmai meridian belongs to the first generation of extraordinary meridians: it is the most yin meridian compared to all others, hence called the “sea of yin” and is responsible for forming the body’s structure. The renmai meridian is also known as the Conception Vessel, representing the yin characteristic of gestation, the ability to carry pregnancy and take on the responsibility of nurturing new life.

    Spiritually, the renmai meridian allows yin to go deep, activating the meditative process known in Taoism as “the awakening of consciousness,” enabling the birth of the “immortal fetus,” symbolizing the ability to give meaning to one’s self and promote spiritual development. The renmai meridian represents the 3 dantians and the 3 Burners at a spiritual level, having the prerogative to initiate the alchemical processes of an individual’s spiritual evolution.

    Similar to the renmai meridian, the dumai meridian is part of the first generation of extraordinary meridians, the most ancestral. For this reason, it is involved in the mystery of the origin of life. It aids fertility through the warming action of yangqi. The dumai meridian represents the foundation, the structure of the individual. The taiyang level is the peak of yang among the energy levels, while the extraordinary meridian dumai is the “sea of yang“, the absolute greatest yang in the body.

    Therefore, it is considered the meridian that describes the individuality of each person. It governs posture, the development of reflexes, and independence. It provides yangqi for body construction, warms, supports, and moves, allowing the child to relate to the world through spinal movements. It becomes active at birth and matures around two years of age. Psychologically, the harmonious development of the dumai allows the child to accept “no” and denial.

    The study of the two extraordinary meridians, renmai and dumai, proposed by Master Jeffrey Yuen, represents a unique experience, difficult to replicate. Thanks to Master Yuen’s availability and generosity in transmitting knowledge that, while not disregarding textual knowledge, draws from the ancient Chinese oral tradition, a heritage of knowledge passed down through generations.

    Master Jeffrey Yuen’s teachings are not found in any text or treatise because he believes that written words fix concepts and paradigms on aspects that, according to Taoist teachings, should remain mutable.
