Push Hands – The Internal Circles of Energy.
This workshop will concentrate on drawing the power and energy of your partner into your body to heal the body. You will circle that energy through your joints and muscles to eliminate energy blockages and tension. This allows you to sense the interior of your body as if a spotlight could shine through all your muscles, bones and connective tissue. The goal is to develop the internal sense, for the mind to be completely connected to the body.
We will learn the difference between traditional (hint: it’s not about who pushes the other partner over more times), and competition push hands. How can you control the interaction by letting go of intention? How can you let go of fear-based habits and discover what has been lying underneath? How can you use breathing to absorb and re-direct your partner’s energy? At the same time, how can you become more mechanically efficient to interact with your partner with little effort? …And much more.
