Chi energy can manifest in all ways. It is thought that creates the form
and it can be used to effect in a martial context.
it works is still a mystery to me but I have done it for so many years, I do not question it. Many have learned the
art and we simply have fun with it. No big deal; it is just there but do not ever rely on it as many can block as they
do with Dim Mak and Acupressure points.
I see Chi as the ultimate chaos from which all things are possible.
As is said, Yi precedes Chi. To be able to bring order and form from chaos demands thought and intention. It is
achieved with total focus of the mind.
of Chi is fundamental to our Chi Kung and our Healing Circle.
The classes held at the Clinic each Thursday progress all of the students to the ability to use Chi for healing. This
extends not simply to the clinic setting but in all aspects of life.
We hold absent healing classes and train to all levels of awareness, to allow each one to achieve the very best outcomes.
The ability is within all of us and Chi Kung has been the route selected by many people, priests and Guru for many thousands
To be enlightened is to take a candle
into a cave where there has been no light before. When you have taken in enough light,
you will see the limits. Come again outside the mountain and with your new appreciation, ascend to the top. The journey
after that will take a lifetime.
I was taught by so
many masters during the 1950s and 60s when they were here to escape the Red guard purges. The art was then so
secret that they would not tell even their own names. Many were so superstitious that to know their names would have
given power to cast spells. Strange times but I am so happy to have been given that experience.
For a white boy at the age of 18 to be taught by them was a real privilege. An honour
that I carry in good faith for the rest of my life.
pay respect to my other masters in Aikido, Don Weir and Lee Ah Loi for all their help in my journey.
It is a privilege to be able to teach the art for Healing as the essence of a balanced personality
is to practice both Yin as a Healing art and Yang as a Martial art to the best of one's ability. The creation of
Chi for Healing is done in the same way with Intent.
The exercises on a Thursday evening prepare the mind and body for this development of ability in those who
are able to do the movements correctly. The meditations are specific and tried over the last 25 years to over 1.000
students, many of whom have gone on to form their own practices. Each one of us has a journey to fulfill and every Master
must wish for his students to excel and further the arts in their own way.
No-one has lived my life nor had my experiences but if I can disseminate all my knowledge into many
small elements then the art is not lost. That is the legacy all who practice these arts with honour, wish for.
