Please Read First:

Welcome to the complete course in Microcosmic Orbit Nei Gong that we are offering publicly. We hope that the videos and lessons below are helpful for people looking to understand this important part of traditional internal training.

You should be aware that the Microcosmic Orbit is not necessarily a course advisable for complete beginners, and at least a little background in Qigong practice would serve as a sensible foundation before attempting this work.  

Also, this training is not advisable for anybody under the age of 18, when pregnant, or if living with a psychiatric condition of any sort.  

How To Approach The Training: 

Initially, I would suggest watching all of the video lectures and giving the practices a try in sequence. This is to get an overview of the training and how it works. Building a ‘bigger picture of the practice within your mind is always helpful, in my opinion.  

After you have been through the program once, start to work systematically through each practical lesson. Start with practical lesson one and keep working at it daily until you have successfully anchored the breath down to the base of the body. Once this milestone has been achieved, then you are more likely to manage the next lesson. 

Continue in this way, identifying the key qualities you seek from within each exercise, and then regularly practice until you are ready to move on to the next. Foundations are the key. If you wish to awaken the Microcosmic Orbit and are not used to this kind of work, I estimate it will take around 1 year to 18 months of daily training.  

Work systematically and steadily, don’t force anything, and remember that subtlety is generally the way with arts like this. Good luck and enjoy the process; I hope you experience the many benefits of Microcosmic Orbit for yourself.

Building the foundation is the most important!

This is a lifetime worth of practice laid out in a very detailed manner. A person could follow along and make great strides. I hope they all take the warning/pre-requisite about building the foundation first. This is so important, I had this issue when I was younger and first starting. The ego eh. Now I anchor the breath nearly every morning with a particular meditation that takes approx. 45 min.

From Italy

I have been practicing Nei kung for 20 years and my method is 90% based on practice and theory is kept to a minimum. I recommend this course for the detailed explanations of the original alchemical processes and although the exercises differ little from those of my lineage I have found them excellent in their growing and gradual experience of practice. All my respect. With love.

One of the best decisions of my life to pay deep attention to this course.

Damo mitchel clears up all the misconceptions surrounding the microcosmic orbit and gives you the real genuine original alchemical version of the proces, it takes extreme patience to achieve but if you do it correctly it just may be the best thing you have ever done. I was formerly practicing kriya yoga out of kriya secrets revealed, and I might drop that practice and just stick with this.

An initial step to the journey of internal art

Thanks for the kindness of giving opportunity to learn the course which is well designed and informative. Previously, I know a little about Yin and Yang related to Tao-te-ching. Now, I get to know how those two operates in our body. This course gives the insight of conditioning the body and nurturing Qi at the initial stage of the journey to internal art. Thanks master!

A truly valuable course for anyone into the internal arts

I am an intermediate level practitioner of internal arts and found this Damo Mitchell's course on the often mystified topic of microcosmic orbit highly valuable. He explains the topic in a very systemic way. The background theory that is needed is shared in detail and there are all the details and examples of exercises for building the needed qualities. Very thoroughly and well presented!

Valuable knowledge and a gem for the internal arts.

The theory explanation is really great and can help student understand the proper knowledge to train and gaining the benefit. Without these fundamental understanding if you just practice you will not appreciate or understand the depth to progress properly. Fantastic course. Can improve your understanding about chi kung and nei kung.
