  1. Just sit, relax, and ask yourself this question in a state of deep medidation. Make sure you are grounded. I dont want to spoil it, feedback welcome

    All I can say is that the Hsing Yi stuff he teaches goes a lot deeper than the four discs of I-Chuan. Just imagine: 7 hours of teaching for a basic movement and stopping and holding postures. He really covers a lot of basic stuff, principles of the internal arts, applications for combat and also the medical and spiritual aspects of standing practice. This matierial has been an absolute game changer for me. The best way I can put it after experiences with live trainings with various taiji an qigong teachers is that I gradually realize how to fill the empty forms with awareness and energy. Of course it depends on where you start from. I messed up my body for many years, doing very heavy labour in constructing, farm work and such. Ended up with pain all over, muscle cramps, numb toes, almost every joint locked and very limited flexibility. Last year I had all teeth pulled out from my upper jaw, lots of hidden inflamations out of teeth treated with root canal work. Had a cronic sinus infection for more than 8 years. Jaw blocked, neck stiff, shoulders locked Doing all kinds of qigong made me aware of my condition and I decided not to end up as a living wreck. Realizing the chronic pain as something not natural and utterly avoidable was a start. Standing medidation can be too hard sometimes, one has to get rid of a hypertense state first. Breathing, sitting, lying, walking, anything that relaxes is doing the job. It is called dis-ease for a reason! After practising ZZ for less than a year I feel a lot better, it is a key that opens many doors, it seems. Anyway, I regard the DVD Set as a real treasure and I will watch the material many more times. Regarding dental problems that can really mess up your living experience just put root canal in the search or read up at Weston Price and his work.

    Hi folks, I do not know if this thread is still alive, last post was dec. As this is my first post in the forum, I will drop a short note only. I came in touch with ZZ last may, went to a two-day-course with some chinese guy. Big surprise there. Finally, after practicing qigong and tai chi on and off for decades, a dim light went on. The I chuan folks do a lot of ZZ and there is some material out there, even free downloads (pdf) I lately watched the DVDs by Bruce Frantzis (Energy Arts)- awsome stuff, I can highly recommend the series, more than ten hours of teaching san ti with lots of martial arts and TCM information.
