Hi All, hope all is going well !
Iam hoping at sometime there will be more activity and correspondences with Hisng Yi Master Program , I kinda thought responses would be quicker and Authorized instructor available to answer basic Questions which do pertain to material
provided . Well at some point perhaps things will change ( It could just be me ) but i wish to make myself available now ,&
seek out active people involved in program to converse with and share notes ! So far Bruce has put some good stuff together but I feel iam missing some pieces to the whole, at times I wish there would be a simple video off to upper corner
of main video where Bruce sits in chair ! Ive got instructional video like this and prefer it for it adds depth it gives another dimension to thre whole . Ok that said is there anyone here that wishes to correspond and share ideas ?

I’m here, monitoring the forums every other day. I haven’t been practicing neijia too long, so I don’t feel like I have as much to contribute to the conversation.
I would like to see more activity on the forums as well though. So I’m throwing in my lot; I’ll contribute what I can.
So far I’m still working on San Ti for the most part. When I first started Hsing i, I kinda buzzed through the forms, but after watching Bruce’s lectures, and going back to San Ti, I feel like I understand a little better now why so much emphasis is placed on practicing the stances longer.
Anyway, hope to hear more from others.

I am also a n00b, so I’ve got questions, but not to many (if any) answers.
I’m working on standing from Energy Gates, and the basic circle walking from Great Stillness, based on suggestions from other forum members (thanks guys).
I’ve gotten responses to my question so far, and while the forum might seem a bit slow, the members have a sincere desire to help. I’m in this for the long haul, so a couple days turnaround doesn’t feel so bad.
Anyway, best of luck.

Hey Daniel ,
Thank you ! and NP I just need to adjust my approach to situation and be patient I think . Personally this is new to me DVD/Online teachings good info though. I really wish someone teaching was close by , i did find place in Washington teaches Hsing Yi and Nei Gung so ill attempt to go there once a month ( it is 4 hour drive ) Well hope your practice is progressing

I am working through the program lesson by lesson (excellent idea to give a full overview of the different sections on the DVD’s as separate lessons). I am one of those who need a bit of structure, I am not very good at puzzling things together myself. Currently I a working on lesson 2 (DVD 1, looking at the finger while seated). I try to combine it with longevity breathing and keeping the concentration for 20 breaths per hand before I continue to the next lesson. It sure works the lower arm muscles!

If you’re going to be traveling to the D.C. area, you should contact Aaron Green (His info can be found in the instructors listing on the EA site). He’s a certified EA instructor in many subjects with some great nei gung, and he often does seminars and private lessons in the D.C. area.. He doesn’t specifically do a ton of Hsing-I, but his knowledge of the internal mechanics of what you’re trying to accomplish will help you “feel” what you’re learning via the online/DVD course and accelerate your progress dramatically.
Which brings me to another quick point. The Energy Arts system is very circular. Be sure not to be too narrow in thinking that you just need to zero in on exclusively the Hsing-I related posts and material. It’s really good to zero in on a practice to explore the depth of it. As Bruce says, “It’s better to dig one well 100ft deep than 10 wells 10ft deep if you ever want to hit water.” But there is a ton of relevant advice and helpful pointers in other areas of the forum as well. If you want to improve your San Ti breathing, check out what people are saying in topics related to Longevity Breathing, then plug it into your San Ti. Want to work on alignments? Check out what being said about E. Gates. Each piece of nei gung that you learn and embody is like a car part under the hood. If you want to upgrade the performance of a car, you upgrade the parts under the hood…you don’t paint racing stripes on the side. If you want to drive a Hsing-I car, that’s cool, just be sure that you keep your focus on upgrading what’s under the hood and not get too caught up in what a Hsing I car “looks” like.
You’re probably already aware of all of the above, but it’s worth hearing more than once. I used to try to zero in on specific events and materials that Bruce taught, and after a while, I just realized that I seemed to get what I was ready to comprehend from whatever material was being taught. That in turn would affect everything else at progressively deeper levels. Not losing the forest for the trees seems essential if anyone ever wants to have a well that strikes water.
