3 Dantians

3 Dantians The Daoist qigong taught by the Li family is expressly designed to align and unify the three dantians (Jing, Qi, and Shen) so they work together harmoniously. http://www.wholife.com/issues/11_5/01_article.html Jing is transformed into Qi in the Lower Dan Tian (also called the Yellow Court), located in the space between the navel, kidneys and sexual organs. Qi is transformed into shen in the Middle Dan Tian (also called the Crimson Palace in reference to the heart), located in the center of the chest. Shen is transformed into emptiness in the Upper Dan Tian (also called the Crystal Room) in the center of the brain. arcaneadvisors.com/archives/FoundationsofTaoistPractice.pdf Yellow Court, Crimson Palace, Crystal Room Jing > Qi Qi > Shen Shen > Wu The Dantian which is nourished by the practice of Primordial Wuji Qigong and Sheng Zhen Qigong sends energy through the Triple Warmer (San Jiao) to all the other meridians and sustains them. In terms of the Five Elements, both the Triple Warmer (San Jiao) and the Dantian are necessary to maintain Element, organ and meridian functions and balances. Thus, the Dantian is essential to the function of the organs and meridians and vital to Triple Warmer functions. http://www.qigonghealer.com/
