Feedback on the FTT Course

Below you’ll find the latest feedback from the Foundation Tai Chi Chi Kung (FTT) course from participants after attending the april one month intensive training:

I found the group very mature and accepting. I loved having both men and women, young and old. I am amazed at the wisdom of the young. There has been a lovely balance of deep work and fun outings. I felt a good balance between alone time and time with others. I found Maria amazing to share a sleeping space with-so loving, kind, considerate and wise. It has been very healing for me to have a harmonious time with others.

 I love having Bård, Mari & baby Alma. What a privilege and such generosity for Bård & Mari to share baby Alma with us. I loved the opportunity I have had to hold Alma while Mari ate, when out. I love Bård’s easy relaxed way.

 I got a lot from the one to one’s with Master Choy-working with pain in my head, feeling how that connected to tears and watching pain shift and lessen until there was more space within. Connecting with the Tai Chi Form and seeing how correcting my vertical alignment the chi flowed. Letting go need to let go to get the chi (leaning forward) and letting the chi come to me. Also being in present rather than having my conscience in the past or future. Finally working with my mother’s Light Being. Feeling presences there for her.

 I learned to accept and love the pain at my centre which felt like a pulse and seeing words in light. Watching how sticking with the pain, it naturally shifted and gradually lessened, leaving more space in my head.

 Standing on my head, practicing the 2nd fundamental and turning my head in circular movement really helped shift the pain in my head and freed up tears to be shed. I was really surprised to see that I could eventually do head stand on my own by wall and feeling a lot of gratitude to Mother Earth for helping me to heal.

 Learning to pace myself better. On day of Tai Chi practice. Feeling chi more, taking time to sit be and practice stillness, Heart Beat Listening, or exercises above. Seeing that when I am willing to share my wish to continue Rainbow Tai Chi Form teacher training, I free up the flow of energy in my and ‘miracles’ happen.

 My first highlight I feel is Rocky Valley, feeling the river meet the ocean and feeling that power inside was incredible.   My next highlight I feel was sharing with you Master Choy about my sexual energy, my manhood I feel that I have took the step to trust in you and within me 100%.. THANK YOU. The final highlight was tonight Mind Blowing or more accurately it was HBMS Blowing. Words cannot seem to explain this. Pretty much everything is a highlight to be honest!

 Forgiveness the power of forgiveness to free you and also gratitude and the different depths within these. The discovery of my sexual energy, Ching Chi and how my manhood got stripped away and to heal this part of me on a HBMS level.

 It was a wonderful treasure and privilege to participate in this month. The sharing was gutsy, honest and very open.  I enjoyed the practice and feel that I have   improved in the Rainbow Tai Chi Form. I think that through the fundamental Tai Chi Chi Kung and the Rainbow Tai Chi Form practice I am beginning to have a greater awareness of chi. I am continually inspired by Master Choy’s teachings. The case he makes is so irrefutable – why does it take so long for all of us to heed and apply it?

 I feel that especially on a heart and spiritual level that I am changing gradually. My interests and view of myself and my path are changing Opening up my consciousness to the possibility that my mission may not be for this lifetime only.

 By living in a harmonious and peaceful fashion and adhering to the HBMS principles in this lifetime I prepare myself for my next lifetime. I feel that chi is present in me all the time. It is up to me to choose to tune it to it. My own perception of chi at present is that chi is universal. It has always been here and will always be here. I find it very powerful to meditate on that  the very same chi that is in a beautiful flower, a great oak tree, a dolphin in the ocean, and in every single item we see, is the same chi that is in me. I have a sense that this chi has been gifted to me. Without it I do not exist – if I do not exist then my spirit does not exist. The chi is in me – therefore I exist. I pay respect to the chi. Respecting Mother Nature is respecting the chi. Disrespecting Mother Nature is disrespecting the Chi.

The Rainbow Tai Chi Way is a lifestyle – not just morning and evening practice. I will be seeking to experience the Yin and Yang in every minute of the day.

Fiona with Cheery Tree, during the ‘April intensive’

The main highlight for me was Rocky Valley. It was so beautiful-I love the wild sea & there was such a harmony of the wild, hard soft and flowing. The evenings of music and sharing.  So many diverse talents and wonderful seeing everyone express themselves.

I had an extraordinary experience connecting with the overlighting presence of a tree in the valley.  I became physically and completely one with her and mother earth and received chi energy from heaven and earth simultaneously.  What a blessing.      Connecting also to the stars.

 Connecting to the blossom tree and feeling it connect to the spiralling galaxy was amazing.  I felt the tree teaching me about impermanence.

 Having Alma, Mari and Bård in the group was an amazing blessing and great to see how Alma has brought such beautiful qualities out in them both.

 Being in the caravan during this month of wonderful wetness was a journey from feeling resistant and scared that I would become ill initially.  Then chanting together in our personal space changed the energy.  Then i walked back to the caravan and connected with the Being of tAfter that I changed completely and looked forward to returning to the feeling of protection and complete rest-surrounded by mother nature.he caravan with gratitude. 

 I feel blessed and grateful to the caravan chi for protecting me and keeping me sheltered in all the storms and rain-which I also welcomed as we need the wonderful rain too. 

 So I rediscovered how I can change my environment by changing my attitude-with help from my teacher and friends.

 Learning to be kind and listen to my body’s great need for rest, without so many expectations on myself and having the space to realise the need to re-focus on my own self-healing.
