  1. Qi Gong

    Thank you, Dainin!
  2. Qi Gong

    There are many people who can teach you health qi gong as they are usually simple in design. Let me know how I can be of service to you.
  3. Excellent! Great to see both of you doing what you love to do!
  4. Curious question about healing Tao

    There is a pre-Heaven and a post-Heaven but only one of each from what I was taught. Bagua as a concept is incredible, Baguazhang as a Martial Art is beautiful but can be very useful when needed.
  5. Baguazhang

    My teacher, Dr. John Painter is located in Arlington.
  6. Qi Gong

    Qi Gong is a broad term that is pregnant with many styles, methods, internal, external/internal, etc. What are you seeking? Do you want martial qi gong or health qi gong. Not many just Qi Gong schools around. I teach various Qi Gong sets, within my Baguazhang system or from other sources. I have practiced hard style and internal so called soft styles. Let me know if I can be of service to you and your quest.
  7. Calling all crystal/gemstone experts!

    That is a really cool looking mineral ball. No idea what it is, buts it is powerful.
  8. The importance of Softness

    You cannot move your body and be 100% Sung as you would be on the ground. There is a little residual tension that exits no matter how many years you train or how much you "think" you are 100% Sung. Sung as it was defined to me by my teacher, is a state where if you were to relax a slight bit more, you would be unable to continue standing as you would fall. You need to be Sung in order to more freely and with certain intentions. Without hardness you cannot know or understand softness and without softness you cannot know or understand hardness.
  9. Saying hi!

    Hello from Boston, Let me know how I can ever be of service to you and yours.

  12. I am starting Baguazhang classes on Thursday

    FYI About Martin Kelly. Martin Kelly is not a certified instructor of Jiulong Baguazhang and should not even be using the name. He is not part of our international association nor is he affiliated with us in any manner whatsoever. I am sorry to hear he seems to be interested in taking people's money rather than being an honest person. It is sad to see people disrespect people in this manner as well as use teachers names and system names to make a name for themselves. If you are interested in learning Jiulong Baguazhang in the Boulder area, you can contact Barry Solway. His website is: http://www.spiralpatharts.com/ Let me know how I can be of service.
  13. I am starting Baguazhang classes on Thursday

  14. Burning Palm System

    Brother Ape, Great to hear that you are releasing some incredible material! I look forward to seeing it. Let me know if you need any help with distributing herbs here in the US.
  15. Why Taoism is different

    too many people get stuck on labels. What matters is the journey, not really the path you are on, unless its causing you to self destruct, etc.... I do what I can to make a little progress everyday. Be well, and train hard Dale
