ABOUT US

Sevangee is derived from the Sanskrit word “seva+angee” which means ‘body of work’ or a regime. In this case a regime of practice and training for the development of the self. Sevangee also corroborates with the concept of Yin & Yang, where ‘seva‘ is yang and ‘angee‘ is yin.

Doing ‘seva’ without any expectation gives an effect of hollowness, emptiness, and so also ‘angee’, which means the body is basically hollow, empty. As Buddha said, “All dharmas are full of emptiness – emptiness exists at everything’s core, emptiness exists in a star, a rock, a body or a tree“. This emptiness is pure (what the Buddha called – Shunyata). It is so powerful that anyone coming under its impact, near it, or within its vicinity will be pulled into this emptiness to be collapsed. This is because emptiness is powerful, immense, it has potential, it is enormous and vast, where one can lose one’s identity (one’s ego or ahamkara), and be at total bliss.

Sevang is also the name of Christopher’s teacher of many years who was a Tibetan lama living in exile in India. The name is partly in honour of him.

HISTORY

WHAT DOES SEVANGEE DO? & WHAT DO WE DO?

Sevangee was started with the aim of spreading this ancient form of holistic exercise. We realise the need of wholesome living in today’s world where people are losing their bearings in the mad rush to succeed. There is a deep need for improved methods of living that are conducive to modern life. Oddly enough the solution does not appear to lie in the modern but in the ancient.

Sevangee teaches the traditional form of Tai Chi Chuan/Tai JiQuan(Yang style) that combines movements with internal energy development exercises and meditation. It draws techniques from Qi Gong, Nei Gong, TsaRlung, and Tibetan meditative practices. This is commonly referred to as ‘Temple Tai Chi’. The name ‘Temple Tai Chi’ refers to the all-round training that was practiced in the temples where it originated.

This method of training is designed to tackle all aspects of individual growth, physical, emotional, mental, moral and even the spiritual.

Sevangee uses these traditional training techniques to provide answers to various requirements:

This is done through various delivery options:

  • Personal Training
  • Regular Public Classes
  • Certificate Course in Medical Qi Gong

    The certificate course in Medical Qi Gong is a long term course ideally suited to those who wish to make traditional healing a full time occupation. The course gives you an in-depth understanding of the human body from the point of view of traditional healing. It teaches the lesser known concept of internal energy and its role in connecting the physical body, the mind and emotions and the spirit. You will also learn about external factors like weather and the seasons as well as dietary factors. The course will cover detailed theory coupled with practical exercises to build and control internal energy to help you understand your own body and how to keep it healthy. The latter part of the course will deal with techniques to diagnose various illnesses and their causes. The last part of the course will be actual techniques for treatment and healing. The course will cover a many areas some of which are: the theory of yin and yang and the 5 elements, meridians & pathways, the theory of development of energy from birth, 6 healing sounds, insight meditation, healing through energy points, diagnosis through sight, smell and hearing, pulse diagnoses, Qi emission therapy, internal-organ self massage, and ailment based healing.
