This one–day group training based on Oscar Ichazo’s book, Kath State, the Energy of Inner Fire, is an excellent opportunity to embody his Qigong (Kath) work of the Five Elements. Oscar adapted his five movements from Master Cheng Man–Ch’ing’s T’ai Chi Chuan and relates them to his theory of the Five Elements of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Space. In his theory, each movement energizes the chi of the Element that he associates with the five physical aspects of the Realms of Existence and Knowledge found in the human body.
The training includes a complete Introduction that explains the Kath State and how this State is generated in the physical body. When chi is generated in specific areas (Realms) of the body, the endocrine system related to that part of the body is awakened, regenerating all the organs and tissues of that area. When all five areas (Realms of Existence and Knowledge) are regenerated through these five movements, the Kath State is attained, becoming noticeable in the brain’s function and felt throughout the body.
Breathing techniques and exercises are employed to further enhance the Kath State experience. Slides are used in the training to give a clear presentation of the material. Meditations with the five movements ensure that a proficient level of embodiment of the Kath State is attained from the day’s Work.
The basic exercises are easy to learn and can be practiced by any age group. Adequate break time is scheduled as well as a two–hour lunch break. Certification to teach this group Work is offered with this training.
