The Chinese term sung is often translated as “relaxed”, but a more accurate translation is “unbound”–a state in which the body loses all unnecessary bindings, all resistances, all tension.

Turning on the news, I learn that history begins at breakfast. Four horsemen trumpet apocalypse: conquest, war, famine and death. Yesterday’s news has been eclipsed. “Life is changing fast,” I murmur. “Can’t keep up.”
At a vista in Utah’s Canyonlands National Park, the slow changes that sculpted this wilderness of pinnacles, canyons and rivers occurred long before the creation of the four horsemen from the last book of The New Testament. The rocks I stand on were once ocean.
Recently, I was asked by Florence Waters of The Telegraph to comment on tai chi as an antidote to stress germane to living in a digital age. When I explain to people that I healed my body from a serious motorcycle accident with nei gong and meditation alone, it often conjures notions of disbelief. However, I’m just one of millions of people throughout the ages who has not only found a path to healing, but also sustained and even amplified that healthy state of being throughout their lifetime from dedicated Tao arts training.
Gods Playing in the Clouds is attuned to the Earth Element with its integrative influence making it possible to weave together all 16 threads of the nei gong system into one, cohesive whole. The energy, power and internal content derived from ongoing Gods training forms the basis for all other Tao arts, such as tai chi, hsing-i, bagua and Tao meditation, making Gods Qi Gong an excellent, well-equipped conduit for taking you down the path of personal development.
Yet many students still ask me, “Am I ready to learn Gods Qi Gong now”? So I’ve put together an overview of what Gods can offer you in consideration of your current state of health and skill level.
Hi Everybody, I get a lot of questions about what to train and when, as well as how nei gong complements in-depth tai chi and bagua practice. So I’m sharing a 30-minute talk I gave on retreat in Crete last year that I hope will help you along your way.
