Recently I’ve been doing a lot of standing practice and it came to mind to write an article on what exactly is standing practice (Zhan Zhuang). This is definitely one of the greatest gifts from the internal practices. So simple and yet so powerful. It is a way of developing better balance and alignment, stronger legs and waist, deeper respiration, accurate body mindfulness and tranquility. In “Standing Post” (Zhan Zhuang) one meditates while standing holding certain prescribed postures observing the natural flow of the breath what could be simpler and yet  profound in more advance practice.

Is Bio-energy Qi (chi) ?


What causes the heart beat and the flow of blood through the veins and arteries?

The Science of the Mind Body Connection!


One of the most dramatic breakthroughs in the physiological domain is the simple effect of the mind mediated through the nervous system to influence the functioning of the immune, endocrine and other systems. In the 1940’s through to now a huge amount of research has been done demonstrating  the incredible power of stress and mood, states of the psyche, on health and disease. The minds effect on immunity, pyschoneuroimmunlogy. got the most attention but the effect of the mind on the heart was also important (psycho-neurocardiology).

What is the Qi Matrix?


Here is a quote from Dr. Roger Jahnke’s great book the Healing Promise of Qi which I think is excellent. “The extraordinary system for absorbing, circulating, and refining Qi in the body is called the Qi Matrix.

The channels or pathways of Qi meridians or (Jing Luo) deliver the life force to every part of the body as fuel or resource for every function. The Qi Matrix interfaces with the living physiological matrix. It vitalizes blood, enables nerve conductance, sustains organ activity and provides functional capacity for every cell and tissue in the living process. The bio-energetic interface between the Qi Matrix and the physiological matrix is emerging as a key area of twenty-first century science.” Continue reading
