  1. I have just registered for your 5 keys course and I am wondering how I will receive your 20 page report on dao training etc.
    In anticipation,

    • Hi Noel, Please check your email as it was sent to you today! Let us know if you need any further assistance. Warmly, Paul’s Team

  2. I’ve just started your 5 keys online course and have signed up for Bruce’s meditation circle and I’m wondering what suggestions you have for a cohesive practice that would combine both of them.
    I live near Chicago and want to start studying tai chi chuan with a local instructor that is certified by Energy Arts so I’m working turning this practice into actual martial arts

    • The material in the Meditation Circle is meant to help you increase awareness and anchor the mind in the body, whereas the Five Keys exercises are designed to promote health and healing. The combination of the two is an excellent method for initiating the various streams within the Taoist arts. As far as your local tai chi class, try to take as much as you can from these two programmes and implement it into your practice. With three areas of focus, you will juggle quite a lot of material and you may find that it becomes too much or that one or two streams get put on the back burner. Don’t panic! Train the material at your own pace and let your practice grow and develop.

  3. Hi, my name is Marcos Lopez and I had a question about the single palm change. I heard Bruce Frantiz say that originally all the taoist monks practiced was the single palm change. I was wondering what you would recommend if I wanted to practice in the old ways with just the single palm change. I have found circle walking improves my health greatly and increase my chi manifold. Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi Marcos, Thanks for your message. Paul teaches a regular Circle Walking & the Single Palm Change (SPC) programme on select Mondays in Islington, London, see He also occasionally offers retreats in Andalusia, Spain, as well as private tuition in London, Germany and Spain. Due to the nature, depth and intricacies involved with learning and training the art of bagua, he feels strongly that live instruction is the only way to learn the SPC. So if you don’t see him, he recommends seeing the most qualified teacher you can find and researching the background of their system as many teach fusion methods and most teach bagua zhang (rather than the monastic tradition). We hope this helps and best of luck to you!

  4. Hello Paul, My name is Roshan and I am 53 years old and have done some tai chi in the pass but now i am seriously looking to get back into practicing since my blood pressure goes up when i do not take medication which is concidered to be low dosage by my doctor. I recently purchase the Bagua Mastery Course and your 5 keys online course and i am thinking of getting the Opening Energy Course. I find these courses very interesting and would like your advice on how to go about incorperating these practices into a schedule – how much time should i spend doing these, which should i do first, etc. Also what is your tought about doing regular calisthenics like pushup and squats, etc.
    I greatly appreciate your response.

    Warm regards,

    • Thanks for your note, Roshan. Paul provides a suggested training schedule in his 5 Keys programme, which you can download from the menu on the right-hand side of the page once you log in to your account. As to what to train and for how long, that is highly individual. He can’t really advise you without seeing you and how you’re practising as there are many factors that come into play. He says the main concern should be the quality of practice rather than how much any given person trains. Best fo luck to you.

  5. good morning,

    been a fan of paul’s for some time both on youtube and as an owner of his, “five keys to taoist energy arts,” course, and have a question.

    i have heard it said, and more directly, in paul’s, “overview of the energy arts system,” posted on youtube in 2013, he mentions a practitioner shouldn’t encounter any danger or problems practicing, “gods playing in the clouds, provided they are proficient practicing both the, “opening the energy gates,” and the, “marriage of heaven and earth,” sets.
    my question is: what sort of problems, or danger, might one encounter if they jumped ahead and started practicing “gods…” without some level of expertise in the foundation sets, what sort of problems?

    huge fan and devoted practitioner of the entire energy arts system.

    please advise…



    • Hi Daniel, see page 8 of Paul’s report on Taoist energy arts training for an explanation. If you don’t have the report, you can download it by entering your email into the box in the upper right-hand corner. Enjoy your training!

  6. good morning pc team,
    as always, thank you thank you
    after studying it i’ll get back if i have further questions
    and thanks again

  7. Hi Paul
    I recently received my final week 10 of The Five Keys online program. Although I am still working through week 8 I felt wanted to express my gratitude for this program.
    I have been practicing Tai Chi here in Jersey Channel Islands for approx. 20 years (give or take a few years off to have children) and this program has literally transformed my practice.
    It would be quite difficult to explain every detail here of how the program has enhanced my practice as there have been so many little increments as I worked through the program. There have been many, what seem like very basic/fundamental, points that have lead to very big shifts in my awareness. It’s been like lots of little light bulb moments but in the body!
    Very broadly, the breathing, the basic/advanced alignments, the whole ‘separate and combine’, breaking down into components and the explanations have all helped me discover new feelings/awareness. It has been amazing, thank you so much.
    I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to improve their Tai Chi, so well put together.
    Very grateful.
    Alli Taylor

    • Hi Alli, Thank you so much for taking the time to offer positive feedback, which we’ve passed along to Paul. He says he’s really pleased to hear of the positive changes; the separate and combine principle is so critical to nei gong, so he says never stop breaking down the practices, refining the components and rebuilding your forms, and you can always keep improving. Keep up the good practice!
