We had two glorious days of sunshine during our workshop. The weather was excellent and we had summer temperatures with slightly cold breezes in the evening. Our German friends from Shaolin Wahnam also came visiting. The fundamental principles of Taiji drive the understanding of the internal arts and so the understanding of these principles stood in the foreground of this workshop.
Hello everyone! There are many questions about what is needed for your travel to Wudangshan. Since we are going soon on the 2nd of May I hereby show you some products which really make your life easier in Wudang.
The spelling Chi Kung (Wade & Giles) is outdated and was developed as a transcription around 100 years ago in Cambridge. Today we know how Chinese people emphasize and the current romanization is called Pinyin. It is also called Tai Ji instead of Tai Chi.
Before I started Tai Chi and Qi Gong training, my physical condition was so bad that I basically saw only two options: either I hang myself and give in to the pain and physical decay, or I catch myself and fight for a more vital body and keep my zest for life.
Yin and Yang stand for strength and relaxation. It is always the opposite that makes our movements in Taiji. We have two hands and two feet, but none of these two will ever be in the same state. We speak of transitions in Taiji; These transitions involve strength and relaxation and always need direction and energy.
Daoism teaches us that we should focus on ourselves. Yet ignoring others is just as much an external influence that changes our nature. How do we make our place in a Wudang school?
Looking at the elegance and grace of Wudang masters may be a great inspiration to us, but it is a great step to truly learn from this inspiration for our life.
The policies of the Sanfengpai Schools are based on the preservation of the Taoist tradition and include the appreciation of training, respect for the older Kung Fu brothers, and the promotion of each individual’s self-discipline as a life philosophy and personality education.
The exercises of the Daoists promote longer life and also support physical health. In silence and in meditation, calmness is practiced, with the qigong and tai chi exercises, all necessary channels are opened and released, so that the energy can flow and the body remains vital. If the shell of our mind – the body – is strong and healthy, the mind can spread more easily. Then the body can better tolerate the silence.
