Life Force Dynamics Qigong Complete Training System (LFD)
Find a deep understanding of yourself, peace of mind and integration thanks to Qigong. Revitalise your life force.
Life Force Dynamic Qigongs is a dynamic life transforming system of bioenergetic practices. It was created as a result of many years of studies by Simon Calder.
It is designed to open, regulate and release the body and the bioenergetic system of meridians and organs and tensions located there, deep traumas, stress ailments and illnesses. It aims at restoring the right structure of the core of the body, strengthen bones, fascia and muscles and provide integrated knowledge about our life force.
The system also includes graceful and fluid Qigong positions, energy meditations, breathing techniques and travelling through the world of the Five Elements.
Certified Training: “Qigong – Life Force Dynamic” aims to serve the exploration of the whole being and eternal and life long personal development and self knowledge. This system restructures patterns in tissues that are created and support our physical body, balance and support our subtle energy body and attune us with the deeper truth and direction of our life potential.
Qigong is an ancient practice that has its rooks in China, India and Western culture. Its name is an invitation to two qualities:
Qi – our Bioenergetic system/life energy Gong – practice, cultivate
Life is a continuum from the moment of our birth to our death. Qigong gives us simple and effective ways of balancing energy and understanding one another until the moment when we leave this life.
Qigong is a prescription for “100 years in health and prosperity”
Energy is the basis of everything in life. When we connect with it and we make energy practices, we renew the connection to the deeper truth about who we are and how we function. Every pathogen and trauma, every breath has its source in energy. So when we level the flow of bioenergy, we harmonise and level our life force, our life becomes more and more sublimated, and we understand better and deeper our way of living it.

Thanks to Qigong we can cleanse the body from toxic Qi, strengthen the immune system and ensure a stronger body in old age.

We broaden all the practices of level 1 to create specific qualities in your Qi energy body. You will strengthen properties of each of Five Elements of the body through meditation, visualisation, understanding diets and how to cleanse and free old Qi before you introduce fresh, new Qi into circulation. Then you will “circulate” Qi in meridians, creating fluid and balanced flow.
You will understand how the Five Elements create the body and how to balance the surplus and deficit. In Qigong we focus spiritually on balancing the system of Five Elements. When you achieve it, you will also experience balance and good focus in life.

3. Life-Force Dynamics Qigong – “Dynamic Flow Qigong”
On this level we deepen the practice of two aspects of Qigong – on one hand, the flow of Yang, on the other hand – nourishing Yin. Dynamic Flow Qigong includes spiral movements, Qigong of Five Elements and classic yoga positions – all aimed at appropriate positioning, strengthening and opening of the body. We will produce large amounts of Qi, and then channel them into dynamic fascia Qigong movement, which will allow us to feel force and fluidity with lightness and dynamics. Spiral movements strengthen and regenerate joints, tissues and body meridians. They restore fascia with the full spectrum of movement, open strong energy whirls, dissolve tensions and pathogenic patterns deep in the body.
We will practice walking in circles, positions of holding, building energy fields and dynamic steps. The Five Element Dao Yin practice will takes us to the Yin side. We will make long, deep sitting and lying positions, conducting and leading Qi through the meridians. We will convert our life energy in “Ying Qi” (nourishing tissues and Qi meridians) to create a solid healthy base for further Yang practices. Focusing on softness and strength, we will strengthen fascia with the aid of a set of special movements “Qigong of Tendons” creating and releasing tension and we will direct the produced Qi energy to specific points in the microcosmic orbit.
On this level we will learn how to coherently combine dynamic force and softness. In it are the essential Qigong practice of making strong movements, at the same time allowing for flow and openness to strengthen our energy body.

4. Life-Force Dynamics Qigong – “Unification Qigong”
Completion of 3 levels will give you a strong base to enter deeper into personal transformation and opening to the practice of the three worlds: physical, subtle and causal. Opening of the Upper Dantien and connecting to our spirit through the crown charka – Shen. We will expand a microcosmic orbit into a macrocosmic one, leading energy through all the channels of the body. We will gain access to deep layers of energy and a sense of unity and connection to all and everyone. “Standing in 3 Worlds” is a powerful practice, which combines all the elements of our being, grounds us in the centre of the Earth, allies us with our truth, so that we begin to radiate inner light and solve resistance against being in truth, and allowing it to manifest in our lives.
Aligning all 3 Dantiens (energetic centres) and giving us a deep profound understanding through the connection with Divinity and Sacredness. 8 Vessels are the energy reservoirs – they hold what we inherit from our ancestors, the deepest layers of trauma and pathology passed over from generation to generation. By performing a special sequence of Qigong of 8 Vessels we open channels and dissolve a deeper layer of disease, recovering life, opening to greater possible bliss. When we feel well in our bodies, when we feel happy on this planet, a world of great possibilities opens up for us.
When we gain deep connection with energy, we learn to use it to heal ourselves and others, sensing energy blockages and removing them using our life energy.
We will explore Mindfulness – the role it plays in Qigong practice and the benefits it brings. We will learn to practice mindfully. On this level we will open to deeper aspects of our being and we will unite with them, learning how to understand and cultivate them.
