Pressing Palm (Kan & Li) Qigong

The Taoist Kunlun Pressing Palm Qigong works on the Fire of the Heart (Li) and the Water of the Kidneys (Kan). Transforming the essences (Jing) into energy (qi) into spirit (Shen), to do this the fire of the ming men is stimulated to warm the kidneys which are water to produce vapour which rises, turning essences (Jing) into energy(qi) to the middle dantian. The heart fire is then stimulated to warm the lungs which then produces water that flows downwards to the rest of the body, but especially the kidneys. The fire of the heart transforms the energy that rises to the middle dantian into spirit (Shen) which then moves upwards to the upper dantian to connect with the dao.
The pressing palm qigong exercise is broken down into two practices 1. Fixed position practice, 2. Moving step practice which can be performed either in a linear or circular method
The breathing method of the pressing palm qigong exercise uses the post heaven technique (hou tian tu na), which mainly stimulates the ming men fire to produce essences (Jing) into energy (qi) which in turn cultivates strong energy to benefit good health and we’ll-being.
The stepping technique that is used in the pressing palm qigong exercises uses the mud wading step (tang ni bu) which stimulates the kidney point on the bottom the foot ( yongquan) to stimulate the energy to rise upwards from the feet to the kidneys and lower dantian.
The pressing palm qigong uses the Taoist internal alchemical transformation of Kan & Li to produce internal energy that can be used for meditation to attain returning back to the dao, or you can use it for general health and long life.
