Daojiao Lishi Quanfa is a whole-body practice that trains in movement meditation and 'qi' work. It dates back over 3000 years, and has elements in common with a number of Daoist practices, including yin, yang, health and harmony arts and use of various instruments. One of the few complete family traditions, it unexpectedly came to public knowledge in Europe in the early twentieth century, and is unique in its breadth of practice. It's primary focus is on 'qi' energy.
Lishi in Acting focuses on many different kinds of energy work, with some training in breathing and alignment techniques with the specific methods used by Lishi (these will be familiar to most people who have some experience with sacral-cranial, Alexander, and Feldenkrais approaches), and additional training in proprioceptive expansion. All workshops also include experiments with applications of 'qi' in acting, including voice, sound, silence, spoken word, gesture, posture, movement, stillness, and engaging with people, things, space and time. After consultation, there can be some traditional and task-based scene work, as well as improvisation skills for stage and for film.
