Cosmic Tour Ba Gua
Cosmic Tour Ba Gua
Circularity is the basic movement of all natural systems. Realizing the value of circularity, we develop the maturity to move around problems, avoid friction and keep our productive momentum. With Cosmic Tour Ba Gua, we discover the dynamic momentum of circular walking which becomes a spiraling dance uniting with different aspects of natural energy. As we walk, we apply a special body language of shifting postures and changing directions to extend from physical to spiritual nature. It is very energizing and brings delight in the free, expansive circular movement that mimics the stars and planets. Recent tests in China have showed that Cosmic Tour Ba Gua is outstanding to benefit healing, rehabilitation, promote health maintenance and to prevent disease. Taught in nine levels.
Merry-Go-Round – This first level, simplified version of the Cosmic Tour can be learned by anyone in a very short time. Merry-Go-Round is ideal for outdoor practice.

The Chi Health Institute of the College of Tao grants certification in Eight Treasures and other Qi movement arts to those who have gained learning and experience with the form, completed a Teacher Training Intensive (see above), passed a Practical Exam and have completed the on-line course, Introduction to Taoist Self Cultivation.
Introduction to Taoist Self Cultivation has been established to support a life-long experience and heighten the potential benefit from practicing and sharing Qi movement arts. The Eight Treasures and other Qi movement arts we teach are not done merely for physical exercise but to cultivate and refine our energy. To become a teacher following the Taoist tradition of the Integral Way requires gathering broad experience and exposure to the basic principles and self-cultivation methods of the tradition. This course involves reading, practice and self-study to contextualise, deepen and elucidate your experience of Qi and self-cultivation.
