Active and Powerful Choices to Gain or Maintain an Optimal Level of Overall Health and Longevity.
Daoists acknowledged the presence of preventative medicine and the methods of nourishing life as a valuable tool and as a natural process and part of its nature. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, Qigong is traditionally viewed by the Chinese and throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance Qi (pronounced as “chee” as in cheese), translated as “vital life energy”. Qigong or “Qi Exercises” describes a group of practices highly popular in the East and increasingly well known to the West. They involve slow, gentle body movements, breathing exercises, self-massages, and the mental circulation of Qi, with the aim to open the body’s inner channels, provide a free flow of energy, help in healing, and in general create a sense of greater well-being and openness of spirit.
Yang Tai Chi Quan
The practice of Tai Chi Quan trains you to maintain a balance between the two principles of Yin and Yang and Quan as Balance. The principles you learn in Tai Chi Quan should be applied to everything you do throughout your life. Ancient people practiced the Dao, also known as the Way of Living. Every single person without exception has a desire to preserve his or her health. “Many times an illness begins when one is unaware of an imbalance that has subtly begun. This allows a pathogen to accumulate and degenerate the body, progressing to the point where it penetrates the level of the bones and marrow. “Health and well-being can be achieved only by remaining centered with one’s spirit, guarding against squandering one’s energy, maintaining the constant flow of one’s Qi and blood, and nourishing one’s self preventatively. This is the way to a long and happy life.”
Chinese martial arts, Daoist healing and its philosophies form the basic fundamental building blocks which are beneficial toward the healing Chinese martial arts practices of Tai Chi Quan, Qigong and its complementary, TCM therapy. To achieve more effective results in TCM aka Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is better to practice Taiji and Qigong daily. Taiji, Qi Gong, Tui Na, Bonesetting, Chinese herbs and Acupuncture form the nucleus of TCM. They cannot be separated. In the past, the master not only taught his understudy to fight, but to heal as well. It would be beneficial for the understudy to compliment his art with TCM knowledge; to connect to the body functioning and flow of energy; used for defence against an opponent. For example the very same technique used in the manipulation of joints and accomplishing the “death touch” is easily transformed to assist healing. Tui Na is often called De Da Sun Sang (fall, hit, damage, injury).
In Traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese martial arts, the Daoist philosophy assists with the deeper layers of experiential and intellectual learning processes. In Daoism, the ultimate goal is to let go of organized societies and human constructs, and to become one with nature. Dao; means the Way or the Path. The basic idea of the Daoists was to enable people to realize that, since human life is really only a small part of a larger process of nature, the only human actions which ultimately make sense are those which are in accord with the flow of Nature; the Dao or the Way. Wu Wei; non-doing or doing nothing. Sounds like a pleasant invitation to relax or worse, fall into laziness or apathy. Yet this concept is key to the noblest kind of action according to the philosophy of Daoism and is at the heart of what it means to follow Dao or The Way. The 4 principles; 1. Simplicity, patience, compassion. 2. Going with the flow. (When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.) 3. Letting Go. (If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to.) 4. Harmony.
