COURSE: Energy Training for Taichi Power! - INTERMEDIATE
PHYSICAL vs. INTERNAL POWER
You can do your Taichi form perfectly, like a physical exercise, and practice for years without feeling and connecting with your Chi - OR - you can make every minute of your practice count, and let it give you true Chi awareness, flow and power!
Taichi is an internal art, meaning that to master it, you MUST have the ability to develop and use internal energy. Learning this ability requires much more than simply learning new forms. It requires guidance from a real Master in how to meditate and work with real energy in your practice.
That's why you need this eight-hour intensive course from Master Waysun Liao. It's an indispensable and definitive workshop for real energy-training.
Knowing the real purpose of Taichi and having a clear goal of what you want to achieve can make the difference between success and lukewarm achievement. With Master Liao's teaching, you can put yourself miles ahead of those who are still performing Taichi as if it were a physical exercise or slow-motion physical martial art.
ABOUT THIS COURSE
Master Liao puts internal work into practice as he guides you through the specific motions, visualizations, and practice principles that allow you to learn how to feel, strengthen and flow your energy. Internal energy work requires new ways of thinking about the universe, ourselves, and our bodies. With correct thinking, your practice won't be wasted.
The secrets to developing Taichi power was only passed from mouth to ear in the old days, between masters and disciples. Those ancient masters left stories, songs, riddles and cryptic teachings that students and scholars tried to preserve in old Taoist scrolls and books. The problem is that these old teachings have been interpreted the wrong way for centuries. But with Master Liao's help, you can finally understand the old wisdom and the real instructions those old masters meant to convey. The result? Taichi power!
In this exclusive course, you'll learn why the notion of a macro-cosmic and micro-cosmic orbit in our bodies, and how these old teachings are all about connecting our internal flow with the external flow of the universe. Not only will you understand this principle through Master's words, you'll really work with this energy as Master Liao demonstrates the right ways to practice to make this important connection.
You'll also learn relationships between different parts of our body that can block or open energy pathways. Master explores how gentle practice focusing on the wrists or tailbone can guide energy in the right direction and increase your ability to circulate Chi.
You'll also enjoy a one-hour guided practice session, just like advanced students at the Taichi Tao Center enjoy. It will give you a great example of how to practice at home, whether you have just ten minutes or an hour to set aside.
Knowing what to do and even performing a form correctly aren't the most important issues in Taichi practice. The most important issues revolve around your ability to truly feel and flow your energy. Master Liao gives you keys to do just that in this one-of-a-kind immersion into internal power and energy training!
Explore the energy universe inside of you! Let Master Liao show you the keys to internal energy circulation and Chi development.
