The exercises in this course help the practitioner to, tangibly, circulate the Qi in both of the Orbits. To do this successfully there are a number of things that need to be in place. Among these are: –

  • Proper posture.
  • A quiet body and a quiet mind.
  • The Kua (the Energy Gates) must be open.

Meditation, visualization, or imagination is not enough. The Orbits are already there but, because of our lifestyles (bad posture, etc.) they tend to be weak and fragmented. The methods taught in this course are designed to help the practitioner to access them tangibly. To then use that tangible awareness to locate any weakness in the flow, any blockages, any sluggishness and rectify them.

The methods are simple and the instructions are easy to follow but, like anything else that is of worth, you need to put the time and effort in.

The Microcosmic Orbit circulates up the Governing Vessel, from the Root Chakra to GV 27 (Du Mai 27), and then down the Conception Vessel, from CV 24 (Ren Mai 24) and back to the Root Chakra.

The Macrocosmic Orbit is the flow of all twelve meridians. It is the awareness of the flow of the Leg Yin, Arm Yin, Arm Yan and Leg Yang meridians.

About the instructor


Principal Instructor at San Bao

  • Des has developed a number of Qigong courses that he teaches throughout the country.
  • He has created online Qigong courses, in order to reach out to Qigong practitioners worldwide, that provide detailed information on the subtleties and nuances that are rarely available to students.
  • In 1997, after three and a half years of study with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu, Des qualified as a Registered Shiatsu Practitioner (M.R.S.S.)
  • He provides, online, consultation for the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, etc. through the use of Qigong.
  • He also carries out consultancy work in the field of complementary medicine and stress management.
“Des Lawton is clearly at the cutting edge of Energy work today, and his sensitivity, humour, and instructional abilities integrate beautifully. This has enabled him to teach at all levels, bringing oriental thoughts & concepts to occidental minds, making these concepts tangible, and demystifying them.” “Des Lawton demonstrates teaching-integrity and respect for his students, and knows how to facilitate student understanding, awareness and true progress, encouraging the students’ desire to learn. I’ve taken other courses from people who may know how to go through the outer movements with good form themselves and have impressive “temple” credentials and an exotic nationality, but they lack the ability to impart knowledge which is the essential attribute of a teacher and also calls into question their own depth of understanding.” G.C. Des is now teaching a number of courses and workshops including the ever popular, Taiji Shibashi Qigong Instructor course.  These, along with the Shiatsu, online consultations, the other courses and classes keeps him very busy……………. I don’t think he would like it any other way!  Mind you he still manages to find plenty of time for hill walking (his “me” time) and he is to be seen tramping around on the Scottish mountains while he soaks up the fresh air and Qi.
