The Closing Sequence [Video]

Share Button

At the end of our practice, we go through a series of steps that we call The Closing Sequence.  This sequence brings three main benefits.   First,  it helps us to transition  from a deep meditative state back to our everyday reality.  Second, it stimulates acupuncture points around the eyes, keeping the them healthy.  And third, it brings energy to the face, helping us to look younger.

You should do The Closing Sequence at the end of every 15-Minute Routine.  You can also do it on its own.  For example, if you’re sitting at your desk at work, and you’re losing focus, go through The Closing Sequence.  It only takes a minute, and you’ll feel much fresher afterward.

Here is a video review of the complete sequence.  You’ll also find all of the steps listed below.

  1. Thinking Gently of Dantian
  2. Rubbing the Hands
  3. Warming the Eyes
  4. Patting the Eyes Open
  5. Washing the Face
  6. Combing the Hair
  7. The Point Massage
  8. Rubbing Coins
  9. 24 Heavenly Drums

Mindfully yours,
Sifu Anthony

    Well now. Have a couple of thnings to say. I have started working on a self-help project in Norwich, UK. I happened by finding out about the project in Australia, and rolled over here to the UK. Had I have found out about it starting here in the UK, I would have ignored it – closed mind. But I am Australian, and it started in Australia – open mind. I emntioned it to another group, starting another community project, they have open minds. We are very gradually getting started in Norwich, and one of the guys said he was interested in Qi-Gong, it had helped him. very much. he has been thru a pretty bad phase of life, found Qu-Gong thru other martial art interests, and wants other to have the benifit. Would I be interested? Why not, my mind is opening. We have been through 3 basic steps, (will have to find out what they are called), but I have started using them. The guy was so happy to be able to give something back to somebody, and I felt so good receiving it from him. he wants to give to others as well, and is obviously benefiting from what he has leaned.
    So I practice on an oil-rig, in the north sea, in the morning, in my cabin, next to the bathroom, during storms. No-where else to go really.
    I thought I would have a look at a few sites an hour ago, found this & started reading. Now, I was a leetle suspicious, it’s a very well laid-out site, giving away a bit of this & that. Then I watched this video. Well, I believe it now. Anthony’s demonstration is so very candid & open. I feel his belief. Guess I will be back.
    Have made notes, will give the 15 min routine a go, adn see where it goes from there. Thankyou.
