Hello! happy to be joining

Recommended Posts

Hi -


I've been reading the forums for a couple of months now; I don't have anything particular to post at the moment but would like the option.


Basic introduction: I'm based in Canada (Toronto) and have been practicing qi gong for a couple of years now; during the last year it's developed into daily and fairly focused practice. I do zhan zhuang, a five elements routine, and 8-set brocade (learned from a teacher her in Toronto), and have started doing some sitting meditation as well. I intentionally avoided books for the first while (most of my learning comes from books, and I wanted to approach this differently), but this year have found a number of them helpful: Qigong Empowerment, Lam Kam Chuen's Way of Energy, and various books by Damo Mitchell & Yang Jwing-Ming; lately I've also been reading some Taoist classics in translation.


Anyway - hello to all, and looking forward to future conversations.

Hello, Jajam, and welcome.

Please take the time to read the post pinned at the top of this Welcome page and take a look at the forum Terms and Rules.   This covers all you need to know when getting started.


For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day.


Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you,

Hi Jajam,


Welcome. You’ll fit right in. What’s your 5 Elements routine look like? Cheers. 


You are welcome to jump right in to the ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forum to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.


May you enjoy your time here.
