Training and taster course with UHT Senior Instructor Andrew Jan
The Shaman Dance was developed by Chinese healers some 5,000 years ago and later developed by Taoist monks into the Bagua Zhang (Pakua Palm) form. In this shamanistic practice, wrong conditioning from childhood and socialization can be discharged and thus dissolved. In order to achieve this, the adepts had to learn to sense these conditioning from within and to transform it through form-induced chi. The monks recognized that there were different energies rising from the center of each person. Each of these energies served a purpose that determines our emotions, thoughts, movements, and the interaction of the Self. Emotions are meant to protect people and teach them not only to feel themselves, but also to interact with the complex existence of life.
In order to achieve self-healing, these energies must be recognized as thoughts, emotions and movements associated with us. The Bagua Zhang was the ideal safe vehicle for seekers to realize these profound teachings. If the stressful emotions succeed in transforming, virtuous emotions become free to unite and develop compassion. Practitioners develop more skill, motivation and positive intentions to intervene in their lives. As a meditative equivalent of the dynamic Bagua Zhang could be considered the FUSION of the 5 elements.
