大周天 / Da zhou tian

大周天(だいしゅうてん)は気功法の奥義。小周天に習熟した後に行われるもので、気功の中でも高度な技法であるとされる。小周天が自分の身体に周りに気を通すのに対し、大周天では気によって人間と天地=大宇宙との交流を行う。天の気を頭頂から取り込んで衝脈に流し、両足と仙骨を通して大地へと出す。そして大地の気を両足と仙骨から取り入れて衝脈に流し、頭頂から出すというプロセスになる。任督二脈に気を巡らすものを小周天、手足全体に巡らすものを大周天とする見方もある。この作品の意図は大周天の気によって人間と天地=大宇宙との交流を図ることにある。

 

Da zhou tian  (great heavenly circulation) is the inmost heart of Qigone practice.  You need to master Xiao zhou tian (small heavenly circulation) before this. Though  Xiao zhou tian mainly focus on circulating qi (vital energy) inside and outside of a body, Da zhou tian uses qi to interact with the universe.

Qi enters the body through the top of the head and flow through Chang Mai (penetrating vessel) down toward two legs and sacrum bone where it emerge and goes into the earth.  Then vice versa.  Qi enters via legs and sacrum then flow up to the head end emerge through the top. On the other hand, there are another definition saying Xiao zhou tian connect two major meridians in the body and help qi circulate.  As for Da zhou tian, it connects these two major meridians and the other six meridians, so that qi can flow throughout limbs. My work intended to make interaction between human and the world and the universe with an idea of qi in Da zhou tian.
