Sydney Workshop January 2020

Background

Da Xuan is a Daoist tradition of practices and philosophy for the complete development of the human being.

The tradition has preserved and transmitted its practices from generation to generation for more than 1500 years. While being Chinese in origin, this rich and unique approach is specifically non-cultural and non-religious. It is concerned with the development of human qualities, and as such is open to anyone of any culture or belief.

The exercises are designed for longevity and so are simple and restorative. They work equally well for the athletic, sedentary, old and young alike, drawing from 1,500 years of experience working with thousands of students.  All are welcome and no particular skills or capacities are necessary.

SATURDAY Workshop:

Fundamentals & Partner Work of Da Xuan

This day-long workshop will introduce the fundamental practices of our tradition. It will be split into 2 sessions. In the morning we will be focusing on solo practices that make up the foundation of everything we do in Da Xuan. In the afternoon, we will go into the partner practices that confront our qualities and achievements to the reality of dealing with other people.

Both sessions will focus on building:

    • detailed body awareness
    • deep relaxation
    • coordination
    • united, whole-body strength by targeting weak links
    • grounding
    • better breathing
    • emotional regulation
    • focus
    • clarity of mind
    • more energy
