Healing Chronic Pain with Qigong
By Dr. Aihan Kuhn: Pain is a negative feeling that can affect our life, emotions, and our ability to work. Millions of people suffer from chronic pain, either physical or emotional, sometimes both.¬† Most of us understand that pain is a natural response to something in the body that is not right. But when the pain is affecting our life, work, and daily activities, we will need to find ways to either reduce the pain or remove the pain.
Translating The Xi Sui Jing (part 2)
By Kevin Siddons and Ying Liang: This is the 2nd of several articles about our authors' effort to translate Xi Sui Jing (Essence Cleansing Scripture) to English. Historically, copies of the Xi Sui Jing are thought to have been lost, but they found a copy of it contained within another document they were translating. It is a significant contribution to the growing practice of Qigong and other internal disciplines.
Wu Yuxiang: Founder of Wu Family Taijiquan
By (Sunny) Zhijun Xu, Ph.D., with LeRoy Clark: The Wu family had a tradition of practicing martial arts and the sons followed this tradition. All three brothers practiced external martial arts first but later took up the study and practice of taijiquan. Eventually, they evolved to take an active part in the formulation of taijiquan theory. Wu Yuxiang first came to know of taijiquan in the Taihetang Pharmacy. This pharmacy property and building were leased from his family and most of the pharmacy employees were from Chenjiagou Village. Some of those employees from Chen Village practiced Chen style taijiquan.
English Translation of the Taijiquan Lun (part 2)
By Yonatan Vexler: The Taijiquan Lun is a short composition about the theory and practice of the traditional Chinese martial art known as taijiquan. Within the English-speaking community of enthusiasts, this text is sometimes referred to as the Taijiquan Treatise. Throughout the generations, this treatise has been a core pillar of the tradition. Even today, all around China, students learning taijiquan are directed by their masters and their instructors to memorize and recite the Taijiquan Lun. It is one of the few ancient traditions passed down to this day... the one that the martial art, with all its many variations, is based on.
