  1. Nei gong and the 5 tibetan rites

    Done the tibetans for a long time and had no side affects. In my afternoon practice i do an hour of Yoga then 20 minutes of standing chi kung followed by the rites (slow and steady up to 21 reps. I class one slow deep inhale and exhale as a rep) Then after the rites i have always meditated as i find it gets me into a state of deep meditation very quickly
  2. Semen Retention: 100 Days and My Experiences

    Excellent post and good advice, "If I do ba gua and qi gong every day, and put the sexual energy into things like exercise and living an active life" I was into conserving 20 years and 10 years ago. Howver in my 20's and 30's i found it really hard and the longest i went was 60 days. Lots of chi kung and running seem to direct my energy into a positive way. OK i am only on day 40 at moment but i am coping well.

    Justbhappy. Interesting info. The moon has such a great influence on nature so it must have an influence on us. I read somewhere that given most of us are comprised of water the moon can influence this. How exactly does the moon influence you? (maybe start a new thread on this) Legally you were treated less harshly if you murdered someone on a full moon, you LUNATIC .A friend of mine was in a mental hospital and people were clearly changed by a full moon and it became a bit of a mad house .... pardon the pun. Does a full moon imply more sexual lust and a little moon (?) imply control. have you any further information regarding this because i would like to find out a bit more

    Dr Yang Jwing Ming as above. He also wrote a much more detailed book "Qigong The Secret of Youth which incorporates the Microcosmic meditations with chi kung and goes into the science behind it. It is the only book i have read which makes sense on a tangible scientifiic level. However it is a big book and a HEAVY read. For fun try reading Paul Dong - The Empty force. This is mad but fun, however the chi kung in it is good. Mixing Chi Kung with meditation works for me. Bit like athletes cross training. I will warm up using Peter Keller 5 Tibetan Rites which has a fine chapter on transmuting energy (The Sixth Rite) Google it and lots of it on You Tube. I will then do 30 mins Zuang Chuan Chi Kung Then go for a run. After run I will meditate using Microcosmic meditations. However if you do martial arts or any physical activity this will no doubt work and make you stronger by definition. This level of training (I USED to train 8 hours a day) will definately take your mind away from shagging. I guarantee after 2 weeks, the strength kicks in (more so in March - June season) However the downfall like anything else is keeping the routine, staying dedicated and not letting the outside world harness that power you have gained. This is a struggle for most people in the world, including myself who are slaves to the world we live in. I really hope some of you guys, young or old have an opportunity to take training forward. Retaining semen is not the be all and end all, if done alongside other training as your body tends to naturally grab it as a resource. Hope this helps

    I think some of the martial artists at my kids club have super yang. Massive Egos embraced with contained violence

    Fū Yue , excellent, thank you Northern Avid Judo Ant I appreciate your honesty and can empathise with your feelings towards modern girls and the frustration of not being able to accomplish your dreams of having a family ..... YET When i was at the height of training in 3 styles of Chi Kung alongside running twice a day ( I was a student with time on my hands) I longed for a steady girlfriend. The fact is from 21 - 25 i was without one, and met my wife at 26, almost your age. If i was giving advice to my sons i would plead with them not to settle down till mid thirties as ego and experimentation has been depleted and you are ready and more content and less likely to have a divorce. 27 dude? that is young man, i feel young at 40 and seem to get more interest from girls as i get older. Trust me man, it will happen Modern women. I am not sure i could cope with the dating game too. Online dating, is a way but more specifically i would join groups, outdoor sports, martial arts clubs, and you will find the girl. I believe in the power of retention, in the depths of my heart and from a debate I could argue against anyone and indeed would to defend my position and logic behind it.

    OK. Last night I gave in but not in a conventional way. I know this will frustrate some of you guys but dual cultivating, with someone you love/or are passionate towards is the way for transmuting energy for my personal effort. One caveat. Don't cum. Absorb the women but don't let go. 2 schools of thought, be celibate like a monk in a cave. Or be in control of the eventual/potential explosion of passion. A book i read in 1997 " The Tao of Health and Longevity by the American author Daniel Read dedicates a large chapter of his book to this. It is an easy to follow read,absorbing books, manuscripts from ancient China/India and Chinese medicine concepts of the Dual Cultivating method. The Yellow Emporer had a number of "plain girls" who would in turn give him tremendous energy over time. This morning after saving myself for almost 2 weeks i feel so strong and mentally clear. I am still randy as f*** but in a different way. NO urge to wa** no urge to shag. Just an energy in my balls leading to my lower and upper dantien. I know this is probably only relevant to say 50% of you guys and i did do a 100+ days almost 10 years ago by myself, but it was a sadder energy and although not depressed it was not generating the enormous energy i expected. I suspect if you are gay and love your partner it may benfit too, but i would not know. Anyway good luck you guys. I will check in a few days from now. PS just for info, I have been married for 12 years, so it's not like I'm at it every night and getting my mrs in the mood is sometimes a monumental effort. But i am faithful, but told her that in 10 years time when hopefully i am strong still I may have to have my own plain girl in lust and passion running parallel to the true love i have for my wife. Is this wrong? Maybe on a Christian level, but not in nature and some religous orders or other ISM's. Consumerism, always and some elements of Taoism sects reflect this.

    The Terminator is still in !! that's funny Whilst this thread may help i reckon to check in for progress and such but thinking about this everyday will not help you. You will give in. I read somewhere that successful people, be it sportsman, martial artists, business people are so focused and intent on their plans that they literally make love to them. I know this sounds difficult to get head round but by channeling that raw energy into something else it gives them an edge of energy which compounded over time makes them successful. Face it, to come is the best drug on the planet (and because we can choose to anytime we want is why there are so damn many of us)To abstain is a massive physical and probably more mental challenge to take on. To compensate one must take on an equally new challenge in life in order to harness and direct your new found energies. The above will read like total crap to many, but it is my experience since 1994 at the tender age of 21. Then it was sport and running which was my passion, and to a certain extent it worked. However as i got incredibly fit and strong i became disillusioned as i never won a race as i was competing against the best in the country. Kept at it off and on for a few years and hit 100 days in 2004 when i was doing ultra long runs (50 + miles a day. Got injured and have never really recovered since. Now i have a new passion which requires creativity, inspiration and about 12 hours a day,and my intention is to hit 100 days for the good of this. To cum or not to cum, that is the question. In my heart i know the answer, but my brain, through instinct and evolution is the monkey on my back which i must beat.

    See i'm a pragmatist. I used to read alot about the tao. have a nice book collection. However what this site seems to do is interpret texts written in such a time and different culture that make them nearly impossible to understand now. Much like the bible, how can you base your life on something written in a world completely different to the one we live in now. However if you take religion, or Taoism for that matter, one thing remain constant. All higher levels take on the matter of celibicy. Not so much now but early Christians were hermits, ascetics. Catholic priests should remain celibate, why?. Yogis, Sufis you name it. I believe that if you have got to give it a go. I will be following these rules. No sex with the Mrs (100 days mininum, then dual cultivating in the Spring) No Wanking with or without ejaculation (cumming without ejaculation while pressing the acupoint between balls and anus is cheating) i used to kid myself it wasn't and whilst you loose no physical energy you loose the same amount of internal stuff) No rubbing touching or anything such No fantasizing as this creeps up on you and you find you will loose it in your sleep. In order to achieve my goals (I have it 100days before back in 2004) so i know it can be done. Will be very busy (starting a new business this year) very active, chi kung mininum 1 hour per day, running or cycling most days Everyone shags and wanks, do something different. STOP. The first 2 weeks are the hardest. You should feel a bit of energy kick in by then which will motivate you more good luck

    "Boffing", what does this mean exactly? Celibacy sucks like not taking that Costa latte with your friends or having that extra pint. We are talking about enrichment. Everybody and anybody will shag. Women sheep, themselves. Who does not shag. That is the difference. I know if i was a Qigong teacher, somedays in the Midlands i would take advantage of a young, single brunette with much to learn. However, the pleasure i gain will be questioned. Each to their own but we are talking about celibacy and what lies beyond it ....
