The healing sounds are an ancient Daoist gigong practice used to transform negative emotions to position emotions. Sounds and associated movements link to the Lungs, Kidneys, the Liver, the Heart, the Spleen, and area of the body referred to as “the Triple Warmer” in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The following lessons are arranged in traditional order of practice and can be performed all together in a sequence or used to focus on a particular sound to address a specific emotion. Although typically done seated (or laying down for #6), the sequence can alternatively be done standing. We will demonstrate both seated and standing methods in the final lesson.
General Format for Practice
Begin in an erect but relaxed seated position at the front edge of your chair. Begin with hands on lap, close eyes and visualize the light color associated with the sound pouring into the target organ.
Next move hands either hovering or pressing against the body in the area where to organ is found. Continue to visualize light and smile into the organ.
Execute the movement and sound.
Return to the hover position for a couple breaths.
Finish the repetition with hands back on lap. Repeat as many times as desired. 3, 6, and 9 are common.
