Master Bing Draws Bow

Paul & Rosalie DiCrescenzo will host Master Bing (Zhong Xue Chao) again this spring, with workshops in the Boston area, and two weekends of events here in Maine. Master Bing will be in Brunswick (April 27 & 28) and Rockland (May 4 & 5).

We are please to welcome him back to Bowdoin College for World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day on Saturday morning, April 27th, and for two afternoon workshops, offered on Saturday and Sunday.

Brunswick on Saturday afternoon: learn/refine the Five Animals Qigong. From 1:30 to 4:00, Master Bing will teach the Five Animals, the routine unique to Wudang Dao training. The Five Animals correspond with the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine, exercises specific to key organ systems, and to maintaining balanced health. No experience is necessary for new-comers, and returning students can refine and deepen their understanding and feeling for these ancient, graceful movements.

Brunswick on Sunday afternoon: Bagua Fundamentals. From 1:00 to 4:00. Sponsored by Paul and Rosalie, you can find out more information, including attendance fee at their website- Bagua Circle walking is a surprisingly meditative practice (has been shown to quiet the mind faster than Taiji), good for balance, stretching and loosening joints, and focusing the mind. The practice energizes and relaxes at the same time. Based on the I Ching (Book of Changes). There are hidden techniques in the circling patterns and the “palm changes.”

Master Bing travels here from Wudang Mountain, where he received his training and teaches authentic Wudang Kung Fu. We are very fortunate to have him share his skill, knowledge of the internal arts, and his cultural experiences- Wudang Mountain has a reputation as a Taoist spiritual center, made familiar in this country in the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. He is a generous, accessible, patient teacher, unpretentious in manner, who’s movements are truly inspirational. No experience in T’ai Chi or Qigong necessary for these workshops.
