  1. Hello Escott, My experience with Zhineng Qigong was also not a conclusive one. Would lik to try Fragrant Q. but it has many restrictions. Also practiced Shibashi , Wuji and the Zhang Zhuan system of Yiquan.Concerning Shibashi ,IMHO the Udemy course by Des Lawton the best there is Nowadays, by necessity, I needed a more healing oriented Qigong. I found Hunyuan Q. to be very easy to practice but also very profound; like Zhineng it also makes use of Huyuan chi. You can find lot of detailed information online (books, DVD's, online courses). If you need more information send me a message.

    Does anyone knows more details about the practice shown in this video? https://youtu.be/KdvCXOQISHA Perhaps it is the translation but the instruction is a bit confuse and I would like to know more. It seems to be a fairly simple technique

  5. Fragrant qi gong has saved my life

    Hello, Where did you learn Fragrant Qigong?
  6. For those interested in the Western hermetic tradition, I would like to draw attention to the work of a very little-known author: Louis Cattiaux, and his magistal work: "(The Message Rediscovered or the Clock of God’s Night and Day)." (You can read about L. Cattiaux here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Cattiaux.) The book has more than 5000 aphorisms that deal only with the regeneration of the fallen man and his exit into the light and it is a living and true experience of the author. The beautiful symbols and images that pervade the book are mystical and alchemical in nature but apparently not in the usual sense. The book would have been lost and unknown if is was not the effort made by his disciples Emmanuel d’Hooghvorst, and Charles d'Hooghvorst, Emmanuel’s younger brother, whom he met in May 1949. Cattiaux transmitted the oral tradition that accompanies the book and which has always been the same through the ages to the two brothers. Emmanuel d’Hooghvorst, who died in 1999 was the living embodiement of the hermetic tradition. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmanuel_d'Hooghvorst). About external alchemy, IMO, first you have to receive the "donum Dei" and through the union of heaven and earth one starts the transformation within oneself until the final achievement of the golden immortal body. The lab work it is a final and mysterious path that I do not know much about it, but according to the oral tradition you have to have receive the first matter or the matter of the pure life from heaven or from a good friend to be able to start the external path. What Louis Cattiaux have rediscovered seems to be a path that is between the two "extremes" of a pure psychological and a pure lab mineral research. Sorry for my bad english.

  9. Hua Shan Healing Qigong

    Hello, Qigong Shibashi is one of the styles I practice. Recently I found on their website a new course: Hua Shan healing qigong. I was quite curious and ended up buying the course. First impressions: It's a qigong style quite different from all the others I've practiced; It seems closer to a pranayama practice than qigong itself. Most of the exercises starts with a strong abdominal inspiration and then the movements are practiced maintaining the air pressure (qi) in the abdominal region. The curious thing is that in two or three of the exercises, where this qi or air is supposed to move to other locations, to my surprise the feeling is real. For example, in move the qi to the Bai hui or make the microcosmic orbit, I had never felt anything special in these practices, but here the feeling is very sharp. I have just finished learning all the exercises. Another feeling is that at the end of the practice I feel quite energized and with the feeling that the stale air was really expelled from the lungs and toxins from the body. I would like to hear the opinion of others who have also begun to practice this system.

  13. Hello to All

    No offense at all. Everyone is entitled to his opinion. As I said, I have just started the practice so I do not have yet enough experience to say much about it. I will PM you If you don't mind. The word wuji can refer to two types of practice; the standing posture (Zhan Zhuang)like it is described in Elliot's book and a moving practice called wuji or primordial qigong. The authors you mentioned ( Jahnke, Bollo (could it be Rubbo instead?), Cohen and Winn) belong to the latest, isn't it ?
  14. Hello to All

    Hi CleanSox, Started many years ago with the system I first learn from my teacher (South Shaolin qigong) but it was somewhat different because one would gently swing the body back and forth. After that I have practiced from the book “wuji breathing” and also from Jan dieperslot’s book. Lately I have been following the instructions of S. Elliott, but I am not sure I am going to continue because I am having some very strong reactions and I am not sure why. Maybe it is the element breathing that he has introduced in the practice? Can you tell me a little bit more about Zhui Hui and Milton?
