Yang Shen Fa- Daoist Health Preservation- promoting a long and healthy live

Yang Shen Fa the art of enabling self cultivation by taking our health into our own hands.Yang Sheng Fa promotes methods of self-healing, health cultivation, and encourages a positive state of mind, ultimately leading to the preservation of one’s health, well-being, and from a practitioner’s perspective, greater focus and treatment outcomes.

There are many aspects of Chinese medicine, and Yang Sheng Fa lends itself to the branches that can be used by yourself without having to visit a Chinese Medicine practitioner. These methods include the following:

• Food Therapy / Dietary Improvements

• Herbal Supplementation

• Mind Cultivation

• Acupressure / Self Massage (Tui Na)

• Energy / Breathing Exercises (Qi Gong)

• Physical Exercise (Daoyin or Taiji)

Yang Sheng can be a way of taking advice and training on health and wellbeing, and tailor it to your own individual needs and preferences.

In my clinic for Classical Chinese Medicine a growing number of  patients asking for live and health guidance. This is actually very good because by guidance of daily live like it is named  at Yang Sheng Fa the speed up of to get healthy is really visible. After the patients get back their health and they keep on going on the Yang Sheng Fa principles they can keep their health and enjoy their live.

Here some quotes from Chinese classics:

Mind Cultivation

“Temperance in the emotions can prolong life”

Gong Tingxian, Ming Dynasty (Longevity and Life Preservation)

“It is man himself, not Heaven, who governs his life,

and he who abuses himself dies young, while he who takes

good care of himself enjoys a long life”.

Gao Lian, Ming dynasty

Daoyin Exercise

“Aging does not occur with bodily movement”

Lu Shi Chun Qiu (Lu’s Spring and Autumn Annals)

Teacher or master of an energy or spirituell art, Part 2

It is of course no doubt about all arts has to crowth. It means some can add some new because of expirience in his art. Only master are able and should to do so. But many creaters or changer of an art do not have deep knowledge and expiriences. In my opinion and my expirience they do have only little or even no sprirituell and /or energetic expirience. They thinking (and this is the problem) better do like this or leave out that or call it now like anyhow but different. They do not understand that in an energetic or spirituell arts has nothing to do with  intellectual abilities and I mean real nothing.

After a short walking on a side- path (not the real path) these kind of people asking already how to get the title teacher or master or guru or what ever. And of course many schools or pseudo master are offering it like: “Get your master or teacher degree only in two years”, “Only 100 hours to master the art” a big cashflow industry, yeah. Special for the provider. The cashflow engine is droping down arts who are already thousands of years old like Yoga, Qi Gong, Taijiquan and is overflowing market with so called teachers or masters. Within decades arts who survived thousands of years because of a good marketing strategy the arts by itself becomes superficial. And…the people realy thinking (because of marketing brainwashed) they doing a real highlevel art. If you are looking deeper into the history so many masters sending away seekers. Why ? … they understood quite fast the seeker is not ready for the highlevel art and they don´t want to waste own time or the time of the seeker.

I would not say anything about the right of somebody to learn a part of an art. It is of course good to perform something what is good for so called fitness or fun. But then the offerer should not use the old terms of the art who are realy good for health, vitality and spirituality. Create new names, new games, new offerings but do not blame or shame thousands of year old arts.

But how to find now the real arts how to seperate good from bad or truth and lie?

Thoughts about will coming soon ….
