Summer Begins – Happy Summer 2014!

Sunshine Daydreams

and Karin

 

Dear Qi-friends,Happy summer to you and your family! Karin and I have been enjoying our time in the magic Stockholm archipelago since returning from our one-month teaching trip in China last week.

Fun YouTube Clip from our China Trip!

We had a great time in TaiGu with my Dai Family XinYi teacher, Grandmaster Zhao ShouRong.  If you’d like to get a taste of what it was like to train all day at a 1000+ year old Daoist Temple in a remote area of China, you can watch this short little YouTube clip.We have been working hard on our newest project, the companion DVDs for our newest book, XinYi WuDao.  The DVDs, XinYi WuXing and XinYi BaGua, are expected to be released June 30.  70% of the footage for the DVDs was filmed on site at the same Daoist Temple, and much of it was filmed under the guardianship of a great 2,000 year old locust tree – cool!

Valborgsmässoafton Fire!

We made a large bonfire on April 30st, which is a time honored tradition for Valborgsmässoafton, the last day of April. It is the fourth biggest holiday celebrated here in Sweden – we officially clear out the all debris from the winter and welcome in the summer!

Summer begins

According to Chinese cosmology, today, May 5, 2014 is the starting point of summer. However, don’t expect the hot weather to arrive immediately. We will continue experience some chilly energy for the next two weeks.

For most of northern hemisphere, the dramatically warm temperatures will set in starting May 20th.  June and July will be dominated by excess Fire, and this strong Yang energy will cause Qi and blood circulation issues for many people.  I think it will prove to be a difficult season for those of you who have weak heart and lung function.

Protection from Excess Heat

Adding sea salt and apple cider vinegar into your daily food seasonings will nourish your health during the summer season. Bitter flavored foods and organic raw vegetables will be a nice addition to your daily diet this summer. Of course, your daily Qigong practice is one of the best ways to maintain your balance.

Keeping with our promise to supporting our Qi-friends’ inner cultivation practice, we have many teachings scheduled in the Pacific region of the United States and in Europe over the next several months.

Join us in the Pacific Northwest!

Karin and I will return to the Pacific Northwest soon for another extended teaching trip. In addition to Lifelong Training Program sessions one (May 21-27) and two (May 30-June 5) at Trout Lake Abbey in Trout Lake, Washington, we will have several offerings at Sun Gate Studio in NE Portland, Oregon:

We will also be offering a one day workshop in Cosmic Orbit Qigong in Seattle on June 15.

We hope to see you at at least in one of our west coast events!

European Lifelong Training Program – course full!

It is very exciting that our first offering of the Lifelong Training Program in Europe is now full. If you are interested in adding your name to the waiting list for the 2015 European level one training, please send us an email.

GanZhi Certification Program

We have also been busy preparing for our GanZhi (Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches) teacher’s certification program. We  and we expect to launch separate programs in both in the US and in Europe in 2015.   If you are interested in learning more, please email.

Looking Ahead

For those of you who like to make plans in advance, we will be offering many teachings during the fall and early winter. If you are interested in more details, you can always check my website’s teaching schedule.

Karin and I hope you will have a very pleasant and relaxing summer season. We will be in touch again in early August!

Harmonious Qi from Karin and I,

Master Wu
