There are two forms of standing meditation training in the lineage of Tai Ji Quan Neigong that Master LI Guangzhao has: with or without physical body movement. 

Standing Meditation without physical body movement:

Level 1: Wu Ji Standing Meditation

Level 2: Hun Yuan Standing Meditation

Level 1 Wu Ji Standing Meditation  (Wu Ji Zhuang)

Wu Ji Standing Meditation (Wu Ji Zhuang) is the first stage in Tai Ji Standing Meditation. Traditional Tai Ji training starts from Standing Meditation instead of Tai Ji forms/postures. This is how Tai Ji masters taught Tai Ji within their own families. With consistent daily practice of Wu Ji Zhuang, students learn the true meaning of “relaxation” for the body and “awareness and concentration” for the mind. Thus students can improve their physical and emotional well-being significantly and build a solid foundation for Martial Arts training if they are interested in it.

 

Students are taught how to correctly position the 18 key parts of the body: Head, Feet, Neck, Chin, Teeth, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Finger, Chest, Upper Back, Abdomen, Lower Back, Hip, Buttocks, Knee, Ankle, and Crotch. Every student will get chance to feel the instructors when the techniques are demonstrated. Students gain deeper understanding of the forces of Yin and Yang. Students acquire valuable skills to heal themselves through mind and body exercises that can be done anywhere and anytime. They learn to follow the way of Tai Ji at home, work and everyday life.

Level 2 Hun Yuan Standing Meditation  (Hun Yuan Zhuang)

Hun Yuan Zhuang is the second level in Tai Ji Standing Meditation. Traditional Tai Ji training starts from Standing Meditation instead of Tai Ji forms/postures, to cultivate Neigong, or Inner Power. This is how Tai Ji masters taught Tai Ji within their own families. In Level 1 Wuji Standing Meditation, students learn the true meaning of “relaxation” for the body and “awareness and concentration” for the mind. 

 

Level 2 Hun Yuan Standing Meditation builds on top of the relaxation technique of Level 1. In Level 2 Huan Yuan Standing Meditation, the instructors will further teach the students how to integrate the relaxed 18 body parts to form a coherent and integral body, and to cultivate a healthy and natural relationship between the body and the mind.

 

Students are taught how to use posture and “Yi” (mind) to cultivate “Qi”to flow throughout the body. Every student will get chance to feel the instructors when the techniques are demonstrated. Students gain deeper understanding of the forces of Yin and Yang. Students acquire valuable skills to heal themselves through mind and body exercises. Hun Yuan Standing Meditation is also a key training technique to acquire Martial Arts skills.

Kai He Dong Gong (Open/Close Movement)

 

There are two forms of meditation training in the lineage of Tai Ji Quan Neigong that Master LI Guangzhao has: with or without physical body movement. 

 

Standing Meditation with no physical body movement includes Wu Ji Standing Meditation, and Hun Yuan Standing Meditation. The main goal of Standing Meditation training is to cultivate the internal movement (Yi/Mind and Qi/Energy) without movement of the physical body.

 

Standing Meditation with physical body movement include Kai He Standing Meditation, Kai He Dong Gong, and the Eight Neigong Training methods. The goal of the training with movement is to maintain the stillness in the physical movement(open/close).

 

This course (Kai He Dong Gong) includes the following topics:

1.    Kai He Standing Meditation. This builds upon the Hun Yuan Standing Meditation and adds the open/close movements. The goal is to train the movement of the whole body to follow the movement of the Yi/Mind.

2.    Bao San Guan (hugging the three gates). This training method focuses on the coordination and integration of the virtual and real meridian. The three gates are: the Wei Lv Gate, the Jia Ji Gate and the Yu Zhen Gate. Work on the open/close in the front/back, left/right, and up/down directions.

3.    Si Dong Gong (Four Open/close movements). This training method focuses on the training the body and limbs to move together and in harmony. The first movement: the body transports the limbs. The second movement: the limbs push the body back to central position. The 3rd movement: the body drags the limbs to move back. The fourth movement: the limbs pulls the body back to central position.

 

Kai He Dong Gong is the key in the cultivation of Tai Ji Neigong. The Kai He (open/close) movement is the fundamental building block of all the Tai Ji postures. Therefore, it is critical to learn Kai He Dong Gong. Whether one wants to get health benefits or acquire martial art skills, Kai He Dong Gong is a very valuable practice method.

 

Kai He Dong Gong is the core training method in the lineage of the Yang Style Tai Ji Quan that Master LI Guangzhao has. It was a secret way of training that is only preserved in the Yang Style Tai Ji Quan taught by Master XU Daishan. Master XU Daishan pass it on to Master LI Shutian, Master LI Guangzhao’s father, who taught Master LI Guangzhao.
