When a man does not dwell in self, then things will of themselves reveal their forms to him. His movement is like that of water, his stillness like that of a mirror, his responses like those of an echo.

The Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts was established by Laoshi Damo Mitchell in early 2004 in order to preserve and share the arts of Qi Gong, Nei Gong and the internal Martial Arts. As an organisation, we believe in studying and preserving a system in its classical format. The methods offered here are the result of Damo’s studies across Europe, China and Southeast Asia over many decades. Damo is also a widely published author on the internal arts and this site serves as a portal to access his writings as well as his classes and courses. As an international organisation we have branches around the world run by senior students of Damo. Please take the time to look around our site and we hope to see you some time…

One attends to one’s affairs in the midst of the emptiness…..While practicing contemplation of the empty, one also knows that one cannot destroy the ten thousand things, and still one does not notice them. This is the secret of turning the light.
