It is a clear Saturday morning in the fall and the Wudang students are punctually at 7 clocks to meet on the Jesuitenwiese. Together, they practice some of the oldest Qi Gong routines in Chinese history. It is late in the fall and in the morning, the dew is still on the grasses, the tingling cold goes under the jackets. Like a swimmer, who is already standing ready in the bathing suit and waiting to jump into the cold lake, the goose bumps rise up the back. Because everyone knows why everyone meets like every Saturday morning here.
We had a question in our last seminar with master Chen Shiyu and the question was really hard to translate, it still is and here we will explain to you why! This is called Ying-Yang. This is the Ying (pointing at right hand). We call this (pointing at finger sections), 子丑寅卯巳辰午未申有須亥 (the earthly branches). This is some of the Chinese culture, it’s more complex.
The triple burner (三焦) is one part of the six organs (六腑) in Chinese medicine terminology. The character 焦 was originally written as 膲, which means beneath the skin. The upper burner (上焦) corresponds to the section of the body above the diaphragm, the middle burner(中焦) between the diaphragm and belly button, and the lower(下焦) burner the part below. Contrary to the Chinese medical names for the other organs, the concept of the burners does not correspond to bulk organs but are rather the protection of organs.
Hold your horses here! If you want a traditional school, you have found it! It is not usual in traditional schools to tell you everything from the beginning. Why should the master even teach you? Just because you paid a lot of money? That is not how tradition works in China. In the San Feng lineage, one must prove himself to be of good personality and dedication to the lineage to improve oneself. Whining about your lessons by demanding it will not help you when the master has no interest in teaching you that may be a sign to get your “things” (almost said a bad word) together.
