I've been practicing Breathing, Dragon and Tiger, and Energy Gates pretty intensively using this combination. The benefits have been real and palpable, physically psychologically and -- dare I use the word? -- spiritually. Slow and steady wins the race. The devil is in the details. Getting there is half the fun. If you practice systematically with these things in mind, you WILL experience benefits. For people unable to attend a live class, this is a wonderful and very effective alternative. I've become an Energy Arts evangelist, because I know the power of these methods.
I recently returned from a three week instructor training in a chi gung practice called “Gods Playing in the Clouds”. This intensive was held at Menlo College near San Francisco and I’d like to share some details about my experience.
