Chi Lei is a gentle, standing meditation practice accompanied with guided visualization – this profoundly effective meditation practice is a perfect practice for those who have difficulty bringing the mind to a silent meditation or are uncomfortable being seated on the floor. It has the added benefit of strengthening and healing the body.
Many people in the West seek out Chi Lei, (also referred to as “Lift Chi Up, Pour Chi Down Method”), as an alternative to medical health care because of its proven effectiveness at improving physical, emotional and mental well being, and increasing vitality.
I found Chi Lei in 2010 at a 10 day retreat. I loved how it was free of dogma and really gave me a palpable experience of “energy”. I also appreciated the feeling of strength and calm that I felt after the Chi Lei – it was the same feeling I would get from a yoga class or an hour meditation session, without any complicated yoga postures or the strain of an hour seated meditation practice. The movements were strengthening yet simple to follow, gentle, accessible and within just a few days of repeating the class, I had the movements memorized and could continue on my own when I returned home.
Lift Chi Up, Pour Chi Down begins with connecting you to your body, breath, and mind, exactly as it is, in this moment. Then, as arms reach up the mind travels up … following the guided visualization you enter into the vastness of infinite space
Travelling “down” through the feet and into the earth and beyond the earth … to the blue sky on the other side of the earth.
