Ah thank you very much for having me :) it is really nice to see a community as this, i was recently reccomended to join and cant wait to learn more and interact. 

 

I am originally from Scotland now living in the Netherlands. I found Daoism during a very painful period in my life several years ago and it has been such a beautiful influence to learn and heal through. 

 

I have learned Tung School Tai Chi long form for 2 years but sadly just moved to a new city where i will have to find a new teacher from a different school. 

I recently have been reccomended Damo Mitchell and his Nei Gong practices, im really enjoying his work and have started working through his internal arts academy, it has been very beautiful going back to the starting foundations of my meditations and qi gong practices.

I really look forward to hearing more peoples experience with Nei Gong and reccomendations of material to look up to support this process. 

 

My other passions are studying flamenco guitar and also drawing Islamic sacred geometry (and painting with watercolour).

 

Many Thanks

I studied flamenco for a year, which with that teacher meant sticking to Soleares (which is apparently the classical way to learn - master loneliness then branch out).  Nowadays I don't feel lonely so often so haven't played it as much lol

 

And been studying Damo's material maybe 7-8 years now :) and agree with you initial assessment of him.
