An Introduction to some of the Wild Goose Qigong system
Most people who have an awareness of Wild Goose Qigong are usually familiar with the "Wild Goose Qigong 1st 64" with its imagery of a wild goose playfully patting the water, drinking the water, looking for food and eventually sleeping on the nest.
However this is just a small part of a vast system of Qigong exercises, movements and meditations. Some of the exercises are very short and easy to learn whilst others are much longer routines. Here are some of the more popular ones. There are different levels in these forms, some are more advanced than others.
The first stage is to practise the 1st and 2nd 64, as these forms work on the body's vertical meridians, open up the acupoints and develop the three Dantians. Once we have established this base the other forms can be practised.
The second stage is to work on the Five elements or the five Yin organs. Kunlun Bagua (liver), Qigong for the Kidneys etc.
The third stage is to train the meridians, collaterals and the Zang Fu organs to interact with each other and spiral the Qi . (Tripod and Spiral Qigong).
The fourth stage of training is to practise the "soft "gong. Soft Palm, Soft Fist. This level can exhaust all the disease and nourish the spirit. It allows us to absorb the essence of nature to purify our Qi field and eliminate and prevent all illness.
The fifth Stage is to strengthen the Qi, with forms like Dayan Palm. Here we practise quick and slow movements, internal Qi and external muscle. This will improve the speed of internal and external communication of the human Qi field. It will also improve the physical strength.
