Nei Wai Hsiang He &
Tao Arts Training

Quote

Tao Arts Training to Develop Nei Wei Shang HurTaoist arts and philosophy are extremely pragmatic and incredibly understated with instructive texts often being terse and cloaked in many layers of metaphorical language. While obvious meanings may be gleaned from a casual read by just about anyone, laying just below the surface is a treasure trove of principles detailing technicalities and natural law that can only be truly revealed by the initiated. Feasibly and perhaps paradoxically Taoists have always regarded that the best place to hide something of value is out in the open.

However, the bulk of the Taoist tradition is oral with teachings and experiential knowledge wrapped up in short proverbs that guide the dedicated student cleanly and clearly through the trappings of the ego, and into the unchartered waters of the mind.

As the student walks along their path and trains, the many veils peel away and the guiding principles uncover ever-deeper truths. And the same few words that exploit these meanings, propel the persistent student along their journey.

The very fabric of Tao arts is weaved from nei gong threads that intertwine to create the internal structures and external forms of qi gong, tai chi and bagua. The exact same nei gong threads can be weaved in very different ways to generate radically different arts and training results.

However, the nei gong system itself is split into two categories, which yields eight yang and eight yin methods. That is to say each nei gong component naturally develops either the yang or yin qi of the body and, as a whole, every thread contributes to an intimate and delicately balanced lattice.

Moving Qi in the Body and Dragon & Tiger Medical Qi Gong

Are You Relaxed or Collapsed?

Quote

Improve Posture in Sitting Qi Gong + Sitting Meditation

An important aspect of sitting qi gong and meditation is the posture you hold during practice. Proper posture makes it possible for your body to relax, open up and let go, whereas poor alignments lock tension in your body and mind. Like all Tao arts training, the process of improving your posture takes place over time, as you become more comfortable sitting and make small yet significant adjustments. As you do, you gain access to the deeper tensions in your body, so you can release them once and for all.
