You are not wise enough to continue on your Path, your life journey towards Tao? I don’t think so. Universe is full of paradoxes. Only because we expect it to be like something it doesn’t have[…]

Special Timing and Infinity

A Hint from above I’ve recently heard a very interesting thought or maybe it was just a hint, I don’t know how should I name it, but definitely it was an interesting thing to try and to keep in mind: »Around the noon time we humans align with the center of galaxy because our mother Earth aligns with it.« In my previous blog you could have read about our connection with the Earth and how[…]

How long do you practice your Gong?

»How long do you practice your Gong?« That was a question that was echoing in my mind for quite some time. In my first years of teaching Qigong I have been  really surprised by some of my students and their capability of absorbing the information and knowledge for which in their shoes I needed much more time than they did.

  Sudden morning pain It’s really not a nice feeling when you wake up in the morning with a terrible ache in your back, or hip, or knee, or neck… It’s a sudden feeling of discomfort that you thought will never happen since you are a devoted Qigong practitioner.

You are working with energy constantly

  …or why is important to cultivate your awareness and use your knowledge about energy, Qi, even when you don’t practice Qigong.   Everything is energy Taoists presume that each substance or phenomena in the universe is energy.

The process toward Regulation without Regulation

  What is a regulation? All Qigong practitioners are familiar with the five areas that should be regulated through their Qigong practice: physical body, breathing, mind, Qi and Shen (spirit).

These five regulations are not practiced one after another, linearly, but rather simultaneously with different emphasis.   For example in the training of the beginners the[…]

Cycles of the year and Tao of natural Flow

  One of these days I have been having a tea with my fellow partner and my life mate Smiljana. It’s not that this happens just once in a while.
