In this training you will experience the essence of the five elements (Wu Xing) water, fire, wood, metal and earth and you can integrate them into your life and convey them in a lively way. We awaken the energies of turtle, crane, dragon, snake and tiger. You will feel the Qi of the meridians and organs and learn a time-honored Qi Gong from the living Wudang tradition.
In addition to medical and alchemical knowledge, the wisdom of Daoism accompanies you through the entire training.

Participants’ comments

“The training gave me the opportunity to get to know the 5 animals more intensively, and in particular the respective pathways that have interested me for a long time. In the meantime, I can even imagine actually teaching the 5 animals. For the lot of knowledge, the understanding and experiences gained and with it also for my own development in the past two years I would like to thank Niels very warmly. I am already looking forward to the next modules of the training. “

“Dear Niels,
Your free and at the same time very accompanying teaching method made me experience the Qi Gong exercises with you as very beneficial. That motivated me to learn more about Chinese medicine. That is why I started training as a course instructor about two years ago.
I am very grateful to you that I can be there even with little previous knowledge and physical limitations and that I am always welcome. This also applies to the entire training group. You provide a protected training space in which everyone can grow in their own way. A lot has changed during this time.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart. “
