Hi all, I'd like to remain semi-anonymous but I am a new user interested in looking where Taoism and Hermetics meet. I have an internal chinese martial arts teacher in NYC and I am reading up on hermetics to understand that side of things. Nice to meet you all!
Greetings, everyone. I have been coming across this forum often when searching the internet for qi cultivation practices and advice, and have found it to be an informative source. I have been interested in qigong practices and cultivation for a long time, but have only committed seriously about two months ago, due to worries over how serious commitment may psychologically affect me while finishing up a rigorous degree program and starting my career. Now, I'm ready to go, and am excited to surf this forum for gems of information and pleasant conversation. What I've been researching lately, and have come across snippets on this site, how does eating animal protein affect your ability to open qi meridians? I've read that it bogs down energy flow, but I've also read that it is a good source of jing replenishment. I am an avid strength trainer as well as a practitioner of both internal and external martial arts, and I'm wary of decreasing my protein intake too much. Thank you for any advice.
