I was not born with a lot of qi.
For whatever reason, I was born with less vitality than most people, including my older brother.
You might even call me the runt of the litter. (Sorry mom!)
For example, I’m much shorter than my older brother, and I’ve had way more health problems over the years.
And you know what? That’s okay.
It happens. Often. Lots of people are born with less qi. Millions, possibly even billions.
If you’re like me — and you probably wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t like me — then this video is for you.
Thanks to qigong and tai chi, it’s hard to tell that I was born with less qi. In fact, many of you are probably surprised to hear me mention it. You probably thought that I was bursting with qi.
And I am. But the qi that I have now is not the qi that I was born with.
In this video, I’ll examine 2 ancient theories:
- Pre-Heaven Qi (Yuan Qi 元氣)
- Post-Heaven Qi (Houtian Zhi Qi 後天之氣).
More importantly, I’ll frame these theories in a way that’s useful for the 21st-century practitioner.
