Di Yuan, ‘Earthly’ Qigong, is the second of the Qigong methods within the 9 level Yuan Gong system.
Whilst in Tian Yuan, (the first method of Yuan Gong), you gather Qi from the universe into your body to replenish your Qi (energy / prana) reserves, in Di Yuan, (the second method), you learn how to store this Qi so it can be used by the body-mind for maximum benefit.
When practicing Di Yuan, a ‘still standing’ form, you learn how to store and personalize the Qi you have gathered in Tian Yuan. Whilst it is useful and beneficial to first learn and practice Tian Yuan before Di Yuan, you can learn and practice Di Yuan directly, as it has many benefits, such as calming the monkey mind, centring mind and body, preserving energy, increasing mental focus, strengthening will and more.
When you learn Di Yuan, you have a life-affirming Qigong method which you will be able to use for the rest of your life to improve and uplift your life. Continuous practice of Di Yuan improves health and also lays the foundation for further Yuan Gong learning.
