Group practices

Joining a group practice is an excellent way to learn Wuji Gong, the fundamental form of Emei Qigong, and to keep your practice on track. Some students only practice when the group meets. Others use group practice as a way of keeping themselves motivated, as part of a more frequent practice. In any event, group practices are a wonderful opportunity to feel and build the group energy field. Because the energy field the group creates is stronger than a single persons field, the healing that occurs during group practice is stronger than when you practice by yourself. 

Group practice sessions typically last about an hour. Teachers are leading group practices in the following states:
