Here is a very important lesson for you. Make sure you really ‘get it’.
I received an email on the 11th October. The sender asked 3 questions. But the one that really stood out was this one:
Why do you never talk about breathing when you practice Qi gong?
I mean not only breathe IN and breathe OUT but full breathing,like:
Take a really breath in, starting with the tummy (2/3), then moving up through the chest (1/3), and then as you breathe out really empty the chest, really let it go, just let all the muscles of the chest…
On and on it went.
This was my reply:
Unnecessarily complex – just breathe in through the nose, out through the mouth. Simple.
I keep saying it, but the message does not seem to be getting through as much as I would like.
Qigong is simple, direct and effective. Don’t make it complex.
