Emei 12 Forms originates from the Emei Mountain in Sichuan Province, China. Legend has it that the enlighten monk, Grandmaster Baiyun, established this Sudden Enlightenment Qigong lineage in Emei Mountain, and this 12 Forms has been the main practice for training one's qi and meridians.
The 12 Forms consists of both moving and still practices, and they are: Heaven(Form), Earth(Form), It(Form), Heart(Form), Dragon(Form), Crane(Form), Wind(Form), Cloud(Form), Big(Form), Small(Form), Darkness(Form), Light(Form).
This practice begins with the Heaven & Earth Forms. The primary application of Heaven & Earth Forms is in the ascending and descending of the qi in the Ren & Du meridians.
In the practice of the Heaven Form, the practitioner experience the ascending of the qi, and the main effect is in supporting the qi and the yang energy.
In the practice of the Earth Form, the practitioner experience the descending of the qi, and the main effect is in supporting the ying energy and suppressing the yang. When Heaven & Earth Forms are practiced together, the qi of the Heaven and Earth mingled within the body, and the flow of qi achieved a state of balance. The Heaven & Earth Forms are the foundation for all the other Forms.
