“Clarity is more than a specific condition; it has simultaneous multi-dimensional possibilities. It can be a stateless state of ‘presence awareness’ in stillness and motion. Meditative stillness is the poise of quiescence; in motion, it can be the natural flow of effortless action Wu Wei 無爲. Clarity is also a condition of the heart/mind as openness and focused intent. To be clear is to be in harmony with the Dao.”
Teja Fudo Myoo
Our ‘method’ contributes to the health and sustainability of necessary and appropriate Circulation throughout our living human system. The method combines the power of awareness as mindfulness in harmony with the life-affirming teachings and practices of qigongdharma.
What is Circulation in our living human system?
Circulation is the coherent movement of elements through a living, self-contained system. A system in balance has appropriate, clear Circulation. A system in balance and harmony has clear Circulation and no stagnation. Without stagnation, there are no conditions for illness.
The movement of ‘elements’ through our living system can be:
Fluids such as blood, lymph, gastrointestinal
Air or gases
Energy such as ‘Qi’ (subtle system flow)
Qi is also considered Bio-electrical animating life-force.
Circulation takes place within the self-contained boundaries of our living system. Circulation is conducted through the vessels of our pulmonary system and the unique characteristics of our other living systems, including the lines of energy and information flow of a balanced and functional nervous system.
