The Taiji Family
Chenstyle Taijiquan Practical Method – Qigong – Shiatsu

Are you looking for holistic training methods, martial arts, special treatments or just some discussions and exchange about personal experiences?

Yes? Then please keep reading …

We warmly welcome you to our personal web-blog

With this blog we want to share our experience as practitioners of the internal arts of Taijiquan (Tai Chi Quan), Qigong and Shiatsu. All of them are based on Daoist principles. Applying them practically in our daily life leads us to a very different lifestyle.

You are most welcome to join us on this journey!

 

Chen Style Taijiquan – Zen Shiatsu – Qigong

We are a young family, our son is born in 2013, and my wife and I both are 20th Generation Chen Style Taijiquan disciples of lineage holder Master Chen Zhonghua. Beside that I am a Zen Shiatsu Health Practitioner, a teacher for Qigong and Musician.

These are all holistic arts that emerged out of the Daoist culture and the profound knowledge of the Taiji principle of yin and yang ( ☯ ). This basic principle can be applied literally everywhere, but it requires some special skills which need to be trained.

 

Holistic Healthcare & Free Natural Learning

This website is a personal blog, where we want to write about all related topics, mainly being inspired by Daoist thinking, Theravada Buddhism, holistic methods of healthcare and way of living, alternative branches of modern science in terms of education, like Emmi Pickler, Gerald Hüther, André Stern and some more.

Let it Be!

The Beatles just nailed it many years ago, and together with “All you need is move” I’d say there is not much to be added …

The Daoist principle of “Wúwéi” 无为〔無為〕, I think, is very close to “Let it be”. We are used to act out so much all the time, we are not used to stay quiet and observe. If we do this, and then prolong this state, we have the chance to see how things are happening ON THEIR OWN. Healing procedures, play and learning in children, growth of plants etc.

All these to me seems to be in direct opposition to the common mainstream, therefore we want to connect to you to share experience and help each other to create the world we need to live in in a sufficient way.

In case you are interested in Taijiquan specifically, please also go to the website www.practicalmethod.com. This site is monitored by our lineage-holder Master Chen Zhonghua.

Thank you for your attention, I wish everybody lot’s of inspiration!

May all beings be happy,
Michael
