Please also go to The Five Elementals form page with this link for a description of one of the most popular forms.
The Chi-Do Chi Kung Class is a popular
class for all levels. Since 1995 something over 900 people have received tuition in the arts of Chi-Do
Chi Healing and Meditation.
Each Thursday evening at 7.30pm we have a class at the Chi Clinic. Each one who attends is on a path
of Self Discovery and each has their own experiences.
The Chi Kung that is taught here is unique and whilst it may
be similar in many ways to the White Crane and Eight Pieces of Brocade, it is quite different in the intention and many of
the actions are from times before the codifying of the systems in China.
Methods from other arts are taught and in the spirit of Universal
Love, what ever is the root of the arts is respected and applied. These healing energies are found all
over the world in one form or another and some say, may be found in ancient writings from 10,000 years ago.
A number of forms are taught. The Chi-Do Animal
Form for daily exercise as a balance of the external Yang and the internal Yin through body fitness. About
30 different exercises to develop posture, balance, spiraling energy, generation of internal chi, storage of
energy and core strength exercises.
The Five Elementals form is for many, a moving experience
and is used to clear energy, to train the mind and spirit to attune to the One Energy. This form was designed to give
the best opportunity to develop self awareness and healing ability. The whole form is described on another page on this web site.
The next step is the Chi-Do 26 form. This is not merely for internal and external balancing, but is a
spiritual form for increasing levels of awareness. It is this form that is taught to those who wish to practice
'Hands on Healing' or to use healing energy in a therapeutic massage session.
Apart from that, the evening is a forum for
meeting others of like mind, developing self confidence and pure social interaction with the group as a whole.
Beginners and Advanced of all ages are welcome.
It may be a useful forum for the more advanced who wish to develop further and study to a high level.
It is through the practice of Chi Kung that
the healing skills may be learned. Many healers have trained at The Chi Clinic and over the last 15 years that this
has been taught, over 900 students have received tuition in Hands on Healing.
Chi Kung (Qigong) is very much for the development
of a healthy body, mind and spirit. The breathing exercises and meditation sessions are very important to good health.
If you are not as physically active as you
would like, this form of exercise is designed to facilitate movement and encourage mobility.
Tai Chi is a moving Chi Kung (Sometimes referred to as Taoist Yoga) and our classes all complement the growth of the individual as a person, not a number.
Beginners are always welcome and those who wish to learn more about Hands on Healing will find themselves among many of like
All those who are able to think freely and independently, without prejudice will find themselves in good company.
The tuition is precise and each is
given personal training to suit their individual ability.

The beauty of nature is all around us. Chi Kung is Life itself and an understanding that a thing is perfect
when it 'just is' and not when it tries to be what it is not. A petal is perfect at any stage of it's life
for it seeks to be nothing else and has no ego or wish to please. It compares itself to no other
and is not ruled by the whims of others.
To develop the individuality of oneself is the ultimate task.
To Be is perfect.
