Du9 Zhi Yang – Fullness of the yang
Location: Below T7 (approximately level with bottom of scapula).
Here we reach the culmination of yang. This point is at the level of the diaphragm – which represents the end of the middle aspect of the trunk (middle jiao) and the beginning of the upper part of the body (upper jiao). In this area we receive the fullness of breath and the qi from the air. The yang is warm, vibrant, and provides a basis for movement and activity like the sunny side of the hill. Our efforts begin to bear fruits and we move with ease through life.
This point provides a boost of energy to enable us to fly further in enjoying the full potential of life.
