    Hi there,

    I found Bruce’s work through a book gifted to me ‘ relaxing into your being ‘. I have been using the meditation technique in there on average for about 30-45 min a day for the past year. I am now interested in adding one of the energy arts practices such qigong, tai chi, bagua or Hsing-i. Obviously there are multiple options of practice in each of those as well. Specifically I wanted to know which of Bruce’s practices replinishes and generates energy the quickest. I have felt physically exhausted for a long time now, and although this meditation habit has brought me deeper states of peace, it hasnt helped me to gain physical energy. I know it is time for me to end my coffee habit and start to slowly build my energy back up. I would commit to doing the additional practice for at least a hour more a day. Once I start practicing, should I do the meditation before or after the energy practice?

    Thank you,

    Daisy

    Hi Daisy,

    Dragon and Tiger would be the best thing for you to do. It’s best to work with a live instructor but if that’s not possible EA has an excellent online program that will teach you the form – https://www.energyarts.com/dragon-and-tiger-qigong-online-program

    You can look for local Dragon and Tiger instructors here – https://www.energyarts.com/instructors/taichi-qigong/certification/dragon-tiger-qigong

    Also in this tradition there is an emphasis on the ‘70% rule’ – never do anything beyond 70% of your current capacity.

    It may be that you need to dial back your meditation to allow your body build the strength and stamina necessary for longer sessions.

    As far as the order of practice – do what works best for you. Experiment with order and timing until you find the sweet spot for your current needs and reevaluate every so often.
