Wuji Zhuang with Coach Jim Roselando

Date: 10/3/11
From: Jim info@apricotforesthall.com
Subject: Wuji Zhuang

     Tonight I am looking forward to doing something a little different.  Not only will this be the simplest set we have had done in a long time it will be the most effective way for you to truly sample deeper levels of relaxation.  When one trains Zhan Zhuang (or any form of Natural Qigong) we must make sure we do not use any extra force to make the exercise truly work.  The two guidelines for the training are for one to be loose & quiet and the rest happens naturally.  So, as Qigong practitioners we can only assist in the breaking of blockages (physical/mental) by following these guidelines and any extra thoughts or work will only have reverse effects on our cultivation. 

     It is said that Wuji is the mother and the Universal Post is the father of the internal arts.  Tonight we will focus on Wuji Zhuang.  The most common question asked about these two methods would be, What is the difference in cultivation between Wuji & Universal?  Answer, Not much!  The posture (body) and principles are the same and the only big difference being hand positions.  One of the benefits of Wuji is that it is less demanding than the Universal Post so you can "taste" a higher degree of physical, mental and breathing relaxation.  When you have experienced high levels of relaxation this allows your sensitivity (AWARENESS) to be greater in any exercise we practice.  I do want to tell everyone to do not under-estimate the effectiveness of the Wuji Zhuang!!!  If you think this will be too easy for you then I will say, come give it a try and let me know how you feel at the end.  I look forward to tonight's work out!
