Here are free meditations which you can download as a pdf and mp3. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you can click the link to get the whole program when you check out. A number can be done seated or while lying down. I haven't done them all.

James Macritchie has been practicing Chinese medicine since 1977. He was recommended by Wong Kiew Kit. I wrote about him previously on Mother, Juggs, and Speed's training log page. I spent hours researching Chi Gung (there are different spellings for the Chinese terms) and decided Kit was a good resource. https://shaolin.org/. I have four of his books and practice some of his Chi Gung exercises done in standing and just started with his Tai Chi book. He has been practicing since he was ten years old. This is from his biography.

Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit is the fourth generation successor from the famous Shaolin Monastery of China, and a Grandmaster of Shaolin Wahnam International with centres in more than 35 countries, teaching chi kung and kungfu. He received the "Qigong Master of the Year" award at the Second World Congress on Qigong held in San Francisco in November 1997. He also holds an honours degree in humanity, and is one of the very few masters who speaks excellent English.

In case you didn't see it, I also do about 20 minutes of qigong breathing from Ken Cohen. That product is no longer for sale.

I messed myself up really bad doing chi kung. I was advised by someone knowledgeable to seek a qualified teacher and I didn't, to my eternal regret. I'm very skeptical of doing this or any energy work without personal instruction from someone with impeccable credentials.

I agree if that happened then you need a very qualified teacher. People can get injured from this in a variety of ways including psychically. I was doing Ken Cohen's breathing qigong for a year and increased the time from 20 minutes, where I had great results to close to 30 and got very spaced out and went back down to 20 and was fine. I did some other qigong from Ken including a standing meditation for about 5 minutes daily and was fine but decided to stop for a number of reasons. In the spring, I added in some of Wong Kiew Kit's standing chigong. It was good and then added his standing meditation for a few minutes. After a few weeks, one day, I was sure I was in America about to marry an old girlfriend. I'm not joking. I was completely disoriented. Fortunately, I was in the park across the street from me. I don't know if it would have been safe to drive a car and glad I didn't have to find out. I stopped all of Kit's chigong and then began about six weeks ago without the standing meditation. It's been good. It's hard for me to believe such a thing could happen, but it did.

Ken Cohen talks about the dangers of qigong in his book, The Way of Qigong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing.



He mentions psychic disturbances as one of the dangers. I've met people who have gotten extremely ill doing psychic practices. One guy told me he was doing some form of goddess worship 3 times a day. You're supposed to do it, once a month at most. It backfired. One day he could barely move. I think it took him a year to recover. He was very serious about it. I can usually tell if people are lying. He wasn't.
