For students of the I Ching and Chinese internal styles of martial arts such as Ba Gua, Tai Chi and Shing Yi alike, Cosmic Tour Ba Gua offers a unique experiential style in interpreting the 8 ba gua trigrams and the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching via gentle physical movement.
In this three-level learning program, Level One features Ba Gua’s signature circle walking called Merry-Go-Round while holding 12 specific arm and hand poses. It is the foundation for learning Cosmic Tour Ba Gua and activates the energy meridians and generates the life force to improve one’s health and wellbeing and enhance connection to the greater cosmos.
Cosmic Tour Ba Gua was passed down through the Integral Way Taoist tradition and elucidated and transmitted to the West by Grandmaster Hua-Ching Ni aka OmNi, the author of an authoritative translation of the I Ching, the Book of Changes and numerous other books on Taoism. His teaching is being continued by his sons, Drs. Mao Shing Ni and Dr. Daoshing Ni through the College of Tao.
