Principles and practices of Qigong
Exploring the 5 elements and the 3 treasures
In this workshop, we will explore the principles of the 5 elements (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal) and the 3 treasures (Jing, Qi, Shen) as applied in Qigong and taoist teachings. We will work with movement and sound to enter into the foundation of Qigong practice and discover how these principles are applied to bring the organism into greater balance and harmony.
Qigong can open a sensitivity to the subtle movement of energy along the pathway of the meridians and can improve health and immunity. Please join me in exploring this ancient taoist alchemical practice passed onto me by a lineage holder of the Dragon Gate. As a practice of springtime is walking, we will also learn Master Gao Lin’s healing walk.

Alicia Fox began studying taiji and qigong with Sat Chuen Hon, a native of China and a 21st generation taoist lineage holder of Dragon Gate. After a little over a year of practice, my health improved dramatically as I suffered from allergies and was often ill. After studying these forms for several years, Mr. Hon has asked that I carry on this Taoist healing tradition to help benefit others. For many of the people I have worked with they have seen similar results in their overall health and immune system. I have been teaching individuals and workshops, and I am certified as a medical qigong teacher and therapist from the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto, Canada.
I have helped prepare and edit Sat Hon’s writings on Qigong and Taoist teaching stories for publication. I have been his teaching assistant at the Dan Tao Center in NYC and Medical Qigong Trainings at the Institute for Traditional Medicine in Toronto, Canada. I also hold an MFA in Visual Art from Yale University.
