Good question isn´t it ? The confusion comes easily if you don´t know the difference and how to find points to measure. To read and belief advertisement can´t be the right for it. They are all similar, offering of course the best of the particular art for a better sell. For Qi Gong, Yoga, Taijiquan and so on many many schools with many many teachers or masters who knows where to go or why to chose this or yonder. They showing certification of their education, is that good or not ? But who knows is the organization or the person who certificate them are right or wrong or high or low a good one or a bad one.
Mhhh, so what now ? If you really interested to figure out you have to go personally to the place, studio, gym or to the person who calls him- or herself this or that. The most certification are given because the has done so and so many hours in that particular art. With this information only you can already say to 99% this is a teacher. Because nobody can master an spirituell or energetic art because of training the art for xy amount of hours. A person can of course learn the techniques what also means he or she can perform the external movement or positioning picture perfect but it does not mean the art is mastered. To master an energy or spirituell art you have to go through your own processes energetic, mentally and spiritually. This may take years after years and no tonly xy hours.
More about will coming soon, stay tuned for part 2.
