Yi Jin Jing is a powerful practice popularized by the fighting monks of the legendary Shaolin Temple. Originally, these monks slouched over religious texts and prayed for many hours. As a result of their sedentary lifestyle, they suffered from poor posture, backaches, tight shoulders, and neck pain.
The legend was that a famous wandering monk named Damo (Bodhidharma) developed the practice of Yi Jin Jing to transform the bookish monks into spiritual martial artists of the highest order.
At the highest levels of development, Yi Jin Jing transforms even the smallest framed individual into a mighty human being capable of incredible feats of strength and kindness.
The practice of Yi Jin Jing, unlike the kinds of exercises done at the gym that focus on developing muscles or cardio, focuses on infusing soft tissue, including ligaments, tendons, fascia, and even bone marrow with a specific kind of qi.
In a short period of time, the body becomes significantly stronger, resilient, and flexible. Along with the physical transformation, comes a profound mental-emotional transformation as well. Yi Jin Jing works on both levels simultaneously to enhance your potential as a complete human being able to move through the world with more confidence and compassion.
This course is divided into 14 weekly parts. Each week, we introduce a theme and focus on empowering one organ and the associated emotions for the given theme. The last teaching day will be on October 20th, 2018.
1. TEACHING DAY
I will introduce new teaching material on every Saturday of the week. The material is pre-recorded and varies from 30-50 mins, except the initial Saturday that is 80 mins.
2. PRACTICE DAYS
The days Sunday through Friday are the practice days, during which we drill the exercises taught on each Saturday. Each day takes about 30 mins of practice combined with movement, breathing and meditation. It is also pre-recorded.
During these 98 days, I’ll guide you day by day, week by week to awaken and empower all the different meridians and organs. All you’ll need to do is simply log in to the course website and that day’s practice will be right there for you to follow.
Throughout the span of the course, I will organize webinars to answer your questions related to the practice and share additional insights about the practice. Usually, they’ll be arranged on Sunday Morning, scheduled in Eastern Time.
