I originally created this group to give my students a place to connect with fellow classmates, and also to ask me questions.
But over time, the group grew and evolved into a place for prospective students and people who are curious about Flowing Zen Qigong.
Now, it’s a place to connect with real people who are practicing (and teaching) Flowing Zen Qigong, including me and my certified instructors.
We are a big family, and we try to help each other, to give feedback, to share our experiences, and to provide support.
We’re building community here, not just an “Ask Sifu Anthony” forum.
The group admins and I are committed to maintaining the supportive environment that we’ve created — and that’s why we have rules.
By being a part of this community you are agreeing to the rules listed below:
1. Stay on Topic
The main topic of the group is — you guessed it — Flowing Zen Qigong!!
This is not a group for general discussions about qigong. Those groups exist, and I encourage you to join them!
If you’re in this group, then you’re not just interested in qigong in general, but in Flowing Zen Qigong in particular.
If you want to learn more about my qigong method, you can read this post here.
If you start posting about other styles of qigong, yoga, juicing, or (gasp!) politics, then your posts will be deleted, and you may be even be banned from the group.
2. Be Helpful
Provide genuine and helpful feedback and suggestions to others, even if it’s as simple as, “I don’t know the answer, but I’m here for you!”
Give more than you take. But take plenty.
3. Be Nice
This isn’t usually a problem for our group, but it’s a rule nonetheless.
It’s okay to offer constructive criticism. Just be nice, dammit!
4. Don’t Sell Stuff
Don’t try to promote your own stuff, or your teacher’s stuff. This includes books, events, online programs, DVDs, and mutual funds.
Note that I’ll occasionally break this rule and promote my own courses or events.
Don’t like this? Too bad. I created this group first and foremost for my students, and they want to hear from me.
5. Don’t Use Facebook Live.
Please don’t use streaming live videos unless it’s in a thread specifically for that purpose.
6. Don’t Spam
If you belong to a bunch of qigong groups and post the same thing in each group — guess what! We’ll notice!
That’s called “spamming”, and we don’t like it. Your posts will be deleted, and you may even be banned from the group.
Okay, it’s not really a rule. You don’t HAVE to practice. But I’d love it if you did.
Many of us practice qigong daily. Not all of us. Many of us struggle. But we all aspire to practice daily.
I hope you have similar aspirations.
If you’re new to Flowing Zen Qigong, then my Start Here page is a great place to start. Best regards, Sifu Anthony I’m Anthony Korahais, and I used qigong (pronounced "chee gung") to heal from clinical depression, low back pain, anxiety, and chronic fatigue. Today, I'm the director of Flowing Zen, an international organization with students in 48 counties. I've been teaching qigong since 2005, I've served on the board for the National Qigong Association, and I’ve helped thousands of people to use qigong for their own stubborn health challenges. If you're ready to get started with qigong, there's no better way than my best selling book, which comes with free videos and meditations. The sooner you read my book, the sooner you can start healing! Click here to see my book on Amazon.
