Just what I thought, everything is energy

One of the things you're going to hear and hopefully see for yourself by practicing taiji and qigong is that consistent efforts bridge the body's physical structure with our energetic essence. I found a very interesting and well-written article about that from the perspective of quantum physics. Science confirms much of what the old Chinese… Continue reading Just what I thought, everything is energy

The body has a mind of its own…the heart

I recently shared a view of how the body has an awareness separate from the brain (The body's way of knowing) and just now discovered this video that helps to confirm my attempt at voicing the insight. I just barely scraped the surface with that post. So much is explored and understood by so many… Continue reading The body has a mind of its own…the heart

Taiji memory accumulates in the body

The effects of taiji practice are cumulative. You might say it's like riding a bike. The body never forgets. But taiji is much more. The more you practice, the better it gets. Your whole being carries the effects onward even if you don't practice for a long time. It's like taking a pill that works… Continue reading Taiji memory accumulates in the body

Tai chi: a good “unplugged” exercise

I like this brief article about how the author discovered tai chi by weeding out tech-based tools to help reduce weight and arriving at tai chi, the "unplugged" exercise. It is often the case that tai chi is the last ditch effort for people in need. I certainly believe it can help you lose weight… Continue reading Tai chi: a good “unplugged” exercise
