Nine Colour Qi Ball Part 8

When we practise Qigong, we work for good health in both body and mind. It is said that spirit and life must be trained together i.e., Xing Ming Shuang Xiu.

Today’s lecture focused on the importance of this phrase and the benefits of cultivating both good spirit and good life. Movement (Ming development) is very important and we train it in different ways e.g., Qigong, Chun Yuen, Wing Chun, Taiji, Hard Qigong. The spirit changes from soft to strong depending on which discipline we practise.  Without meditation we will struggle to reach our true potential and develop our Xing (Spirit). We have five types of meditation, we must learn to practise, calm down, relax and let go. When your spirit is up your energy is good. Your mind is clear, you have a purpose in all you do. Your relationships with nature and people are loving.  We train Xing Ming together to help our bodies reach a higher level and clear our minds to benefit all we meet.

In spite of an unstable bandwidth connection Sifu did not panic and proceeded to give a very good seminar. Demonstrating and answering questions Sifu polished our earlier moves and taught the new moves. The breakout rooms as usual were invaluable and very helpful.

The moral of today’s story: When the mind is good, you will not judge, until you have the full story.

Student Comments

It’s always good to review the Qigong foundations of practice like Sigong did in today’s lecture and then relate them specifically to the form we are learning. Thanks, Sigong! -Kay

I always pick up something new  or a different angle -even when reviewing basic information- so good. Fun & challenging getting the hang of all of the balls. Good brain exercise! -Jennifer Leaf

Gradually it gets more and more familiar and clearer !! And of course then the Qi flows and it is more enjoyable. Many thanks to our breakout colleagues – all very helpful. Thanks Sigong for a good seminar. Cynthia and Susanne NZ

Very beneficial to have a lecture on the basics of Qigong – the how and why is always imoortant in anything we do.

Great to practise with the different qi balls – interesting to feel the different feelings on the internal body.

Thank you Sigong for another enjoyable seminar. Paul Hogg

Great seminar. Thank you Sigong! 9 colours Qi ball is so interesting. As your brain tries to untangle so that the movement is coordinated, a lot of qi is worked through the whole body. You realise it feeling great afterwards. Michalis A.

It is great to go through the Qigong Theory and philosophy again so we can better understand it. Also, the form feels better and I am starting to remember all the 5 Qi Ball movements now. Thank you Sifu!  Radu

It’s always nice when someone new to the skill joins as it gives us the opportunity to revisit the fundamentals of Qigong practice. It’s so easy to get tangled-up in the new movements we are learning, that it’s good to come back again with some clarity. Thank you Sigong, Sam.
