Today is Valentine’s day. While I sometimes feel like this holiday is more about selling cards, flowers, and chocolate than it is about love, I still think it’s a good time to talk to you about qi and sexual energy.

In the movie “The Matrix”, Neo (played by Keanu Reeves) wakes up from a training session and then says the 4 words that I often dreamed of saying as a kid: “I know Kung Fu.” Now imagine Neo waking up and saying this instead: “I know Tai Chi.” Not quite the same impact, right?
I’m not a doctor, and I don’t even play one on TV. But students often ask for my opinion on this subject. Why? Probably because the Kung Fu tradition (which includes Qigong and Tai Chi) contains a lot of wisdom. And in the 21st century, I think that this kind of ancient wisdom is precisely […]
The longer I teach, the more I think that gratitude is the big secret of life. If you want more health, wealth, or happiness, then gratitude is something that you should practice daily.
You’ve learned Qigong or Tai Chi from a good teacher, and you’ve been practicing for some time. You’ve gotten good results, but you still have a few lingering health problems.

More importantly, the Internet allows us to have interesting discussions, and to share our experiences. I hope that this article inspires some of you […]
These days, there’s more and more talk about External Qi Transmission. Even the Mayo clinic is doing a study. So what is all the fuss about?
The classics say that dawn is the best time to practice Qigong. I absolutely agree. And not just because it’s written in the classics, but because over the past 16 years, I’ve tried it all.
An ounce of prevention. Yada yada. We’ve all heard the cliché. But do we really believe it? Do we act as if prevention is worth 16 times more than a cure?
Valentine’s day is a day meant for love. But typically, the love is projected outward rather than inward. What if, instead of focusing so much love outward, you focused some of it inward? Would that be wrong?
Stop kidding yourself. You’re not ready to quit. And that’s okay. The sooner you admit that you’re not ready, the sooner you’ll be able to quit once and for all.
Students love thinking that their teacher is the best, and teachers love to encourage this. Sometimes it’s true. But more often, it’s not. How can you tell the difference?
