This live class from the 2018 Ultimate Internal Power Workshop had every advanced student talking! It gives critical details on where and how to focus your feeling and awareness of Chi during Tao Gong meditation, with new, never-recorded-before details on working with the soles of the feet and the crown-point of the head. Master defines and explores the three zones of internal awareness and their internal boundaries, applying them in Preparation Stance, Inward Outward, Drain and Taichi Ball. The three internal zones harmonize with earth, human and sky energy as you learn to allow the universal energy to move, feeling so that you can follow.
Master Liao also explores how motion and stillness create power in several key forms, as well as demonstrating how to employ motion and stillness when connecting with a practice partner. Watch these videos and understand why and how Taichi cannot be Taichi without both motion and stillness.
