  1. Best way to stay warm in winter?

    30 minutes daoyin exercises or 8 brocades every morning, one cup of black tea and the body stays warm throughout the day. But it won't work from the first day on, you have to be comfortable with the exercises and the body has to be "open" for some degrees.

    Thank you for your reply. That's what I wanted to know. I like reading his books and he seems to be a man with big knowledge about the internal arts. Best wishes

    I'm looking younger than I am, I'm fit and very healthy. I have a great set of exercises. So thank you, but I don't need another system. That was not my point. My point was reversing aging from Neidan. Some people say this would happen but I never saw a person where it worked.

    Thank you anshino. Good points. Short comment on my reason for practicing Daoyin, standing and Taichi (and silent sitting, but without teacher. I only sit and have my mind in my body). I do it because it feels really GOOD when practicing. After many years of practicing Judo, later bodybuilding and kickboxing I had some heavy injuries and that changed part of my mind. I began with internal arts after treatments from a Chinese Doc. And the arts worked brilliant for my body. They made me strong from inside out. And soon I realised that they also were able to change my mind to a point I had been in my childhood. I became humble again, I became thankful and felt a deeper instance inside myself. All of that and more "crazy" things like knowing that I had lived many times before, I felt/knew in my childhood. And I lost it at the beginning of puberty. And I became what some call a really asshole. And I found it (not all but some of my childhood knowing) again step by step while practicing year by year the internal arts I listed above. But the first thing was, at the age of 33, after those painful injuries, to get back health and well-being. All the other aspects came from alone so to say. If that is what you call spirituality, ok that's what I do too. Best wishes Feng69

    Ok thank you. I will have a look. And I will not ask more. But still I'm not convinced. I do no Neidan. Only Taichi and Daoyin and standing and some pushups etc. And with 50 I had one of those tests which measure different body stuffs (sorry, don't know the correct words). And the test said, my body was like a 38 one's body. And I don't practice any Neidan. That's why I ask if Neidan really works like it is said, because if one can do other things for a young body and quit sitting for stilling the mind, why going that very long and secret road of neidan? But like I said, I only practice for hobby health and wellbeing. So again, thank you for your answers.

    So, is it wrong that Neidan reverses the aging process? Because that's what is often written. I know it's called a side affect, the reason for practicing Neidan is another one. But if the side affect doesn't work, how can one know that the higher aims work? No bashing, only asking because of real interest.

    Sorry, too stupid for using my smartphone

    I never had Intent for bashing anyone. And I didn't. This thread is about Damo Mitchell's course. Damo Mitchell practices and teaches Neidan. People say that Neidan has the ability to rejuvenate. And I can't see it in the case of Damo Mitchell. That was the chain of my thoughts And that's why I asked. No bashing, no bad thoughts, only a question. Because before I give money to a school, a teacher etc, I try to proof if it's good for me or not. So if there is no teacher who rejuvenates I ask myself, has Neidan really this effect on people or not. Again, I LIKE Damo Mitchell's book and videos. It's only about the so called rejuvenateing aspect of neidan.

    Wrong post sorry
  10. Damo Mitchell Free MCO Course

    Oh I'm sorry, perhaps my bad English is the reason for a misunderstanding. No, I don't know any teacher whose look obviously became younger. I only practice Daoyin, standing and Taichi, only as a hobby. I'm healthy and fit with 52 and that's fine. I do no Neidan. And I don't know any Neidan teacher in person. BUT I've read very often here and in books that Neidan makes one younger again, and I find it interesting. And here comes in what I wanted to know. Damo Mitchell (I really like his clips and books! ) wrote a book about Neigong but also about Neidan and he practices Neidan for years, as I read. And that made me questioning why he looks like a man in his beginning 40s ( what he IS) and not younger. Looking both older and new clips from him, one can see that he becomes older like everyone else. So I can't see this rejuvenateing effect of many years of training Neidan. Why not after practicing so long? Hope you understand, my English is sadly not good. Sorry.

    I'm asking that too. I don't practice his stuff. I only saw many videos from him, some years ago till today and I like the videos. But what I am questioning myself is: he is 41 or 42 and he looks like that. And his look became older like everyone's look becomes older when years go by. Practicing Neidan for so many years, why doesn't he look younger than he does? I read quite often, practicing Neidan stops ageing etc... But in my opinion he doesn't look at least a few years younger than he is. He looks good and healthy, like many others do. But not younger. Why not after so many years of practicing Neidan?
  12. Sexual Jing: Is It Really Limited (?)

    Well, I can only talk from my personal experience. Having no sex at all works for me at best in times of 1. having no relationship to a woman (or at least a woman who understands my practice/cultivation) 2. Practicing a minimum of two better three hours or more a day (standing, sitting, Qigong, Taiji). I know that's quite hard when working 40 hours the week but for me it's possible because my circumstances "allow" it most of the time. 3. Not going to places where my sences are feeded with sexual stimulating stuff 4. Havung not too much stressful situations in daily life (the less the better). 5. Drinking not much, better no alcohol at all during that time 6. Healthy amount of sleep (for me best is 6 - 7 hours) 7. And of course the will that cultivation is a very important part of my life. I know this list could be added with many more points but that's what works for me. And possibly the best situation would be, to have holiday for some weeks/months in that intensive times of practice...but not many persons are in the position, having so much holiday. Best wishes (oh I'm so sorry for my English, hope you understand)
  13. Sexual Jing: Is It Really Limited (?)

    If you practice sitting and/or standing with a light attention on your abdomen on a daily basis your jing will become more and more still. This makes your urge for sex smaller and then willful retention is NOT necessary anymore because it happens automatically, because your sex drive is lower. Just my experience. Ok...if you are looking for nice women every day, that won't work. So, if you really want to progress, best in my opinion is stilling the jing through practice and not having sex for a time... As I said, just my personal experience. Best wishes
