Taosit Chi Kung

Basic

Chi/Prana

Balances all energies of the body and eliminates toxins of all kinds. 

 

YIN ORGANS

‘The main functions of the Yin Organs are to manufacture and store essential substances such as vital essence, vital energy, and body fluids.  They take the products of digestion and refine them to match the particular quality of the individual person, thus “storing” is much more than simply holding essence.  It is a dynamic function impossible to divorce from the life process.  The five elements in relation to the yin organs indicate that there are five ways to acquire and categorize essences.  Representing your deeper self, the Yin Organs perform this function.  Appropriately, Taoist Chi Kung begins with invigorating and harmonizing the five Yin Organs.’  Page 41 Strategies 1.  Larry Johnson
