Shibashi 18 – Calming Qi

Whenever you finish your Qigong practice you must settle the energy. We close the 18-sequence Shibashi routine by simply guiding the energy to Dantian, calming Qi.

Routine

Repeat steps 1-3 six times.

  1. Stand in basic posture.
  2. Use mind intention to calm the Qi, as you guide it to Dantian, whilst raising and slightly and slowly opening your arms.
  3. As you breathe out, guide the energy down to rest momentarily on your  lower Dantian.
