Master Huang will teach easy-to-absorb and adaptive exercises of this ancient qi-gong practice, and assist the seminarians through metaphors, visualization, sonic chanting mediation, and deep circular breathing methods. It will be joyful and fun for all levels and all ages of the practitioners, to catch this healthy habit for good: "Wei Wu Wei”—doing by not doing, spontaneously.
