Damo’s Journey

The Nei Gong program is the result of Damo’s three decade study of the internal arts. A journey that has taken place across multiple continents and numerous spiritual traditions – ॐ मणि पद्मे हूँ

~ Shape the Understanding ~

For efficient development within the internal arts, a practitioner must have both practical training and intellectual understanding. The theory underpins the practice and shapes the understanding to help guide the student along the path. This is why our program includes such extensive theoretical training in the form of lectures, handouts and supporting pieces alongside the weekly practice videos.

Qigong & Meditation

Develop the Form

The body is the vehicle for both practice and life. It is the vessel to be cultivated through our training.

Build the Energy

The Qi is the medium that sits between mind and body. The point of change between Heaven and Earth.

Cultivate Harmony

Harmony of body and mind leads to harmony of life and soul. When all is in balance, awakening arises.

Elevate Spirit

Through meditative training, Spirit may arise and lead the awareness towards its own light.
