So he decided to change it around so it would be easier to learn and perform and he called this Tai Chi Chih. The story about it being created for an Emperor for his sexual prowess sounds like one of those typical historical myths from ancient China.

 

The person from whom I learned these exercise said that he had learned it in China himself in 90s from Chinese master. He had never seen Justin Stone so this neigong originated from China and was not invented by Justin Stone. I sent link to person from whom I learned and he said he did not like the way it is done on the video somebody posted above (with old women). As I already mentioned they keep hands too high what makes the energy go up and causes imbalance. So I would not advise doing it without knowlegeable teacher.

Justin Stone states that he invented Tai Chi Chih in 1977. The first movement came to Stone thru a channeling type experience or whatever way he stated that he received in his mind. The rest of the movements he created by himself. Since many of Stone's teachers have been doing this form for 30-40 years or more, I would say they must be getting benefits regardless of how high they keep their hands. Justin Stone has an excellent detailed DVD where he teaches the entire form the way he invented it. People can always believe what they choose to believe. I did the form for a number of months last year and was not aware of any imbalance but I did notice that unlike some other forms I have done, Tai Chi Chih resulted in immediate strong sensations of chi in the hands and the trembling of fingers which is always a sign of strong chi flow. So take it as you wish.

If you read article about Tai chi chih you can read there that: " In 1974, Stone had written: ‚ÄėThe movements...are the results of many years of experimentation. They represent an extension and development of the original movements taught by a Chinese master. The important principles have been retained as the repertoire has been expanded.‚Äô"

 

Later he could change his story on the origin of this system. For what a reason I do not know. The problem with westerners is that they far not always can do the same movements as Chinese masters do. May be other people can perform movements of tai chi chi right but as for this women she is somewhat stiff and if you watch her standing from 47:00 on the video her shoulders tend to go upright and she has more energy  on the top. If someone does not do it right but can experience sensations in hands in the meanwhile or in whatever another part of the body it can be, it does not mean they do it right. 

The goal of this system is not to feel energy in the hands and experiense sensations. It can be a sign of progress but it is not the main goal and it does not mean that the whole set is done correctly. Deviations can have very subtle form and not always can be perceived by senses. Also person can get used to deviations when they turn up and than it could hard even to realize that person is in trouble until they have substantial form
