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. We have this »tea ceremony« every single day and it’s nothing special about it. For the outside observer, though. What is special is that we do it every day at aproximately same time. After our Qigong routine, which is another daily thing that we do[…]

Teachability and Qigong practice

  Learning Qigong seriously is a long way and brings many changes in your life, external and internal… What is one of the most important skills characteristic for people who are able to persist and progress on this way? In what ways they are different from others? These practitioners who persist on this path and are able to transform their Qigong practice into art, or better, into art of living, are usually highly teachable.  […]

Striving for perfection and Qigong Practice

  The change of my mindset regarding the concept of perfection was one of many transformations which happened since I’ve been practicing Qigong, Nei Gong, exploring Daoist philosophy and also other internal arts concerning mindset and consciousness. So I’m happy to share with you this post which is not perfect from many perspectives (my English, clarity, style…) but reflects me in this moment. I enjoy writing and being able to share my thoughts with my[…]

Wu Wei (Non-Doing)

  Path of least resistance In Taoism non-doing doesn’t mean, that you don’t cut trees. It means only that you cut where it is easiest to cut.

Inner Hygiene or How I’ve Cleaned my Teapot

  Teapot needs cleaning Today I had to clean our teapot. Teapot that me and Smiljana use every day. We don’t miss our tea ceremony, the same way we don’t miss Qigong. This tea ceremony, which is not traditional in some Chinese or Japanese sense, because we are usually not quiet, we don’t converse silently, we don’t have clay frog or turtle, on which we pour first brew of tea. We never throw away first[…]

“Scientifically Proven” could be the New Religion

  If something is not scientifically proven it does not exist (?!) Expression I heard so many times during past few years is so strongly used in our western society and it is one of the major factors for something to be relevant, true, existing –  “scientifically proven”. These two words mark something that is supposed to be truth, something existing. Something that really is. If something isn’t scientifically proven it can not exist. Then if[…]

Is there a negative force in the universe?

  Is there an energy of death? Is there something out there that destroys life? Is that Yin? And is a Yang actually a life, a life force and life energy? Yin is negative and Yang is positive. When life gets too Yin it ends. Are women death-bringers?! In short. Women are more Yin than men. Does that mean, that they bring death to this earth life? Women are those who carry life nine months,[…]

To Change or Not (or Save a Drama for your Grandmamma)

  Gladness is only a feeling Gladness that me and Smiljana experience while observing people with who we get in contact professionally is indescribable, when we notice even smallest changes in moving, posture, body expression and tone of voice that a person use to express emotions and thoughts. Unbelievable things start to happen already in first minutes of Qigong in group and then they continue to happen next hours, months… Qigong is designed in a[…]

A step toward relaxation and awareness or why comfortable clothes matter

  We wear clothes and footwear almost always. We could say that they are literally our “second skin”. Do we ever ask ourselves, how do we feel in this “skin”? When we feel comfortable, we feel ease A lot of people at least occasionally dream about the comfort that they would like to have, if they had more money. Comfortable apartment, comfortable bad, comfortable car… But at the same time they do not enjoy the[…]
