  1. Just started up Tidal Wave Chi kung again -

    Isn't that the esteemed master Gary Clyman?
  2. 8 Brocades

    I don't mind Jesse Tsao's version on Amazon Prime. Also Yan Xin (not the legendary Qigong master) has good instructions on Youtube
  3. Mantras

    the "Thoth mantra" is discussed widely on the internet as being effective for stimulating the third eye. Interesting that it is also the name of an Egyptian deity. I can confirm that it works, but the trick seems to be the tone. I always wondered what the origin of the mantra is because I only find it mentioned in new age circles
  4. Need Help Channeling

    Have you read "Keys to Perception" by the same author?
  5. Spring Forest Qigong and Zhan Zhuang

    well you are standing (with knees bent) for roughly an hour or more during the active exercises...
  6. Sacred Drinks

    Replaced coffee with Matcha years ago. Also switched to room temperature bottled water after I read about the adverse effects of food and drink being too hot or too cold
  7. Internal alchemy for everyone

    Internal alchemy is not for everyone. Title is misleading.
  8. I've been practicing since 2015 and can only do 30-45 minutes (sometimes longer) comfortably, and I sit in half lotus every day all the time while sitting at home. Sit often in half lotus and alternate the legs. Use pigeon pose to stretch the hip flexors (when you feel the stretch you'll know the sweet spot) and learn to actually rotate the hip when guiding leg onto other opposite thigh (again you''ll feel it) hope that helps
  9. Now that it's summer here in the states, anybody have any good G&T recipes?
  10. Dan tien/solar plexus/tinnitus

    If I focus on my crown I get those same high pitched sounds, and sometimes it feels like my whole head is getting bathed in energy, similar to the way you describe it. Is it just tapping into the vibrational qualities of that chakra?
  11. Stillness-Movement Qigong basics steps

    good question. i recently purchased Lomax' book on Amazon and was interested in SM, too. Any elaboration about SM technique from somebody would be greatly appreciated!
  12. I saw this recent interview where Chunyi Lin mentions healing his injured knee (4:15)
  13. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

    has anybody used either of these hemi-sync guided meditations from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche? https://hemi-sync.com/product/sacred-space-the-practice-of-inner-stillness-album/ https://hemi-sync.com/product/healing-through-awareness-album/
  14. Qigong ranking

    Yan Xin Qigong had state support back then, it seems very likely to be very high on that list!
