Sin Tien Wu Chi Qi Gong is an amazing and transformative system at the root of our martial practice. Utilizing zhan zhuang (standing post) meditation practices we develop the warrior mind. This type of mental conditioning helps fighters keep a calm head when in the middle of a storm. For many people this practice is very challenging because of monkey brain. The student has so many thoughts going through their head and are not able to focus on the meditation. With practice this condition will subside and the practitioner will be able to not only accomplish the basic meditation but also go much deeper in this study. Most people have some negative thoughts that have been swimming around their mind for years and years. These thoughts tend to come up in solo practice like this and must be dealt with to quiet the mind for more effective practice. Making it through the initial monkey mind stage and progressing more deeply into the real work is the first step in to gaining the benefits from this practice. Indeed, dealing with these energy draining thoughts is benefit in itself.
