Iron Shirt Chi Kung by Mantak ChiaAn introduction to the ancient Kung Fu practice designed to unify physical, mental, and spiritual health
Describes the unique Iron Shirt air-packing techniques that protect vital organs from injuries
Explains the rooting practice exercises necessary to stabilize and center oneself
Includes guidelines for building an Iron Shirt Chi Kung daily practice
Long before the advent of firearms, Iron Shirt Chi Kung, a form of Kung Fu, built powerful bodies able to withstand hand-to-hand combat. Even then, however, martial use was only one aspect of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, and today its other aspects remain vitally significant for anyone seeking better health, a sound mind, and spiritual growth.
In Iron Shirt Chi Kung Master Mantak Chia introduces this ancient practice that strengthens the internal organs, establishes roots to the earths energy, and unifies physical, mental, and spiritual health. Through a unique system of breathing exercises, he demonstrates how to permanently pack concentrated air into the connective tissues (the fasciae) surrounding vital organs, making them nearly impervious to injuries--a great benefit to athletes and other performers. He shows readers how once they root themselves in the earth they can direct its gravitational and healing power throughout their bone structure. Additionally, Master Chia presents postural forms, muscle-tendon meridians, and guidelines for developing a daily practice routine. After becoming rooted and responsive, practitioners of Iron Shirt Chi Kung can then focus on higher spiritual work.
Best Marilyn Monroe Quote of All time
Incidentally my favorite quote does a great job of explaining how things have been going the past 5 months. It was advertised to me as a mid-sized city with promise. I was greeted by a beautiful woman holding a beautiful bouquet of pink flowers. I grew to have a great bond with this woman until one day things began to change. We have to stop and remember that before we came, our host families lived lives of their own filled with laughter, tears, fights, arguments, good days and bad days, and just because we come along does not mean their problems go away. Unfortunately, after a while it became clear to me that my host mom had issues of her own she had not dealt with which lead to her changing, becoming more distant and often being upset.
Everything that happens in one way or another has a direct impact on who you are. Some people were always meant to be together, and never change. Other people change constantly, never giving enough time for a bond to fully develop. If the person you love now is different than the person you initially met, it becomes easier to let go, to move on. Everything has always gone right for them.
