Unfortunately though, this theory is often presented in a disconnected fashion from your actual practice.For example, an instructor might tell you that in Tai Chi and Qigong, "jing creates chi." Then they will teach you the movements of their Tai Chi and Qigong style.But do they ever point out exactly how the movements cause "jing" to create "chi"? Do they point out EXACTLY where and how it happens? And even worse, I've even heard instructors say that you just have to take these theories "on faith." You have to believe in chi, in jing, or in these other concepts - and believe that the theory is what's happening in Tai Chi and Qigong. But wouldn't you rather have useful explanations - not some nice theories that you have to take on faith - but practical and tangible explanations that are directly applicable to what you are learning in Tai Chi and Qigong?--- In this book, you'll discover: * What are the "four treasures" of Tai Chi and Qigong?* What EXACTLY is chi, and does it really exist?* Why we don't define chi just as "energy" - instead here's an experiential definition of chi.* How your instructors can help you experience chi ... and why it's their responsibility.* The "process/activity/result" mindset used by Tai Chi, Qigong, and traditional Chinese medicine.* The one scientifically measurable component of chi that proves it's not all in your head.* What is "jing" (essence) and how does it affect our health?* How "pre-birth jing" creates a special focus on the internal organs in Tai Chi and Qigong.* What are the three "post-birth jing" process we should focus on for health and energy?* Four "post-birth jing" breathing practices that can be done at any time to boost your chi production.* Eight ways to regulate your body to improve your chi development.* The relationship between shen cultivation, chi development, and other disciplines like Taoism and Zen.* Five "tips from the masters" on developing the right shen mindset for chi development.* The real meaning of "wei wu wei" (effortless action) from the Taoist path.* The internal power of "jin" in martial arts, Tai Chi, spiritual, and practical definitions.* A simple experiment in how "jin" should feel that I teach my beginning students.* Using the "four elements" to understand the primary intentions in Tai Chi.* Four elements vs. five elements - which is correct?* Why yin and yang are so misunderstood even among Chinese, and the original meanings of the terms.* How our inner warrior "natural reactions" are worked into most Tai Chi forms.* From intention to internal power: the relationship of four elemental intentions to Tai Chi's "eight energies."* The structural aspects of internal power, and why they are important.* The chi pyramid: how to develop a lesson plan for developing chi and jin from scratch.
