Welcome to our video channel on East Asian Traditons. The videos here are from Master Level Teachers, Mentors and friends whom I have met over many years of personal study and practice (1981-current). The videos here are selected based on usefulness and whom put the time in documenting their practice. They are also from mostly indigenous teachers of East Asia. The easiest way to navigate through the many videos here is to click though each individual channel. This way you get just one subject/tradition versus a mixed flow.
It is our belief and practice - western (non Asian) practitioners should always default to the Teachers and Mentors from whom they learned from as the standard bearer of the tradition. This is to honor the system and Mentors whom it comes from. Tradition makes a difference in the practices, for clear educational and learning goals.
Much gratitude and praise to all teachers and friends whom given these gifts to the world for future generations! The videos are shared for the promotion of the community of these traditions and not for marketing uses. These are for snapshot reminders and not to replace real experiences, learning and interaction. One needs to be connected to a Mentor, Teacher, or Community to excel.

Introduction to Guolin Xin Qigong
By Gary W. Abersold
Guolin Xin Qigong is a powerful natural system of Qigong for the common person and experienced. Guolin Xin Qigong has been used exclusively in China and abroad since early 1971 in the treatment of many type of Cancers. This new channel will focus on "Guolin Xin Qigong", which essentially refers to Master Madame Lin Guan Ming's System of Qigong which is is termed in Chinese Culture as simply "New Qigong".
Guolin Xin Qigong or simply Guolin Qigong is a system comprised of Stationary and Dynamic Qigong, recommended "Therapeutic Walking Therapy Routines" based on disorder or ailment; Five Animal Frolics, Unique Healing Sound System, Massage techniques and use of the "Chi Zi" or simply Natural Wood Ruler. The below biography on her is a elucidation in her own words. ~ G.W. Abersold
About Guolin Qigong Founder: My name is Lin Guan Ming and some people know me as Mei Shu; many now just refer to me as Master Guolin. I was a Landscape style painter of the Southern China School of Traditional Landscape Chinese Brush Painting, I had a very successful career in my craft. My life began in April 8, 1909 in the County of Zhongshan, Guangdong Province. In my childhood at the age of 8, I was taught from my grandfather many secret teachings of Taoism such as the Five Animal Frolics, nourishing life traditions and many other secret teachings. As time went on and grew up I was like most people I followed my career drifted away from my early experiences and became preoccupied with making a living.
Beginning in 1948, I was diagnosed with what we call cancer; it began in my uterus and spread into my bladder, stomach. I was devastated to say the least; I turned to our modern medicine for help went under six complicated surgeries over a long period but the Cancer kept coming back stronger and stronger. The doctors told me to get my family and affairs together and to stay at home.
With no hope left I returned to my early lessons on what I learned from my grandfather and adapted it to suit my health situation. In my quest to live and survive, I researched extensively into both the Traditional Chinese and the Western medical systems, studied with elite modern qigong masters, and evolved the knowledge I had attained into a new tradition of Qigong that I have practiced for over twenty years. Through my studies, practice and research with my ideas on a new modified tradition of Qigong, my cancer has abated and went into total remission.
I named my system Guolin Xin Qigong (new qigong); a new system of health management Qigong, a natural healing system for the common person. I first publicly taught my approach to the public on September 4, 1971, becoming the first Qigong master to successfully treat cancer through my new form of Qigong that teaches specific controlled breathing and movement. Since then there have been thousands of cancer cases had taken part in my Guolin Qigong Walking Therapy and have had great results with it. Countless classes at various teaching centers throughout twenty cities and provinces in China, and I will state that I am still in remission from this life threatening scourge on human life. I am very please that now there are, a great number of qualified Guolin Qigong instructors trained in my New Qigong, for I cannot do it alone.
I believe that cancer should be countered through a three branch approach incorporating both 1. Traditional Chinese Medicine, 2.Western Scientific Medicine 3. Qigong Therapeutics. I had set up the first modern hospital in Xia Huliang in Zhuoxian County, Hebei Province that adopted this three branch approach for the treatment and prevention of cancer in July 1982. My personal achievements have gained the recognition and support of the Party, the Government, Medical Doctors from both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Scientific Medicine as well as Bonafide Qigong masters.
Epilogue: Master Lin Guan Ming's passed away of cerebral hemorrhage on December 14, 1984 at the age of 75. She had successfully beat Cancer through her talents and insights, and lived decades beyond what the doctors had originally told her. Since her death, her legacy and Qigong Tradition is practiced world wide and has been developed even further through many other talented Qigong Masters and dedicated practitioners. The Guolin Xin Qigong Research Society in China supports her legacy and continues he work as well through training and promotion of her Tradition of Qigong. Master Lin Guan Ming aka Master Guolin to the commoner will be remembered for her contribution to the development of Modern Chinese Qigong.

Grand Master Wong Kiew Kit is an expert in Shaolin Martial Arts of the South; as taught to him from his Masters. In this video he explains from his understanding how anyone can benefit from Qigong. One can be Christian, Muslim, Hindu no belief, Taoist or Buddhist. Visit his informative website @ http://shaolin.org/
Commentary: It very common although in Chinese tradition although that people of China follow "Three Traditions One Culture" guidelines. Which is simply the embracing of popular practice/belief systems. Chinese Culture is a melting pot of beliefs and traditions; many of the descriptions and terms used are by western scholars and really don't represent indigenous Chinese Culture.
The old ryme is "I have a Confucian Hat and have a Buddhist Heart and wear Taoist Robe".Throughout the ages what we call these cultivation arts such as "Taoist Qigong or even weirder Buddhist Qigong have been known throughout the ages by many names. They are simply body/mind cultivation skills for better health, mental outlook and personal enlightenment.

Introduction : I remember reading this story in the original magazine, while on vacation on Mackinac Island. It was surprising to say the least. I was like wow how can this happen to her? I studied with her father years before and his Qigong is of high caliber. It struck me real fast although, it's a reminder that we are all human and troubling disorders can hit any of us. This is not "Qi Majik". Her story is of value someone whom like myself actually has used these techniques for healing first and foremost. People that conquer problems with Chinese Medicine are great teachers on what one actually needs to do, NOW. I hope all readers interested in this find this post of use in your Journey..GWA
Qigong Healing for Cancer
Helen Liang comes from a bonafide family of Masters; her father and Great Grandfather are very famous in the Martial Arts/Qigong circles. Helen and her sister are accomplished in their own rights as well. I had taken classes with her father when he came to the east coast many years ago. His traditions are solid to say the least. His teachings have attracted the who's-who abroad. He is now in his mid 70's and still going strong.
When Helen Liang was four years old she started training under her father Shou Yu Liang . The family relocated from China to Vancouver 30 years ago, when she was 13, and now Helen Liang now runs the SYL Wushu Taiji Qigong Institute with her father Liang Shou-yu. She has been featured in North American martial arts magazines, hosted a long-running martial arts TV series on Vancouver's Channel M and has competed internationally.
Helen Liang is a "Can-cer-vive Survivior" through Qigong and Chinese Medicine. These day's the Healing Qigong and meditative aspect of her training supported her through a serious cancer diagnosis 15 years ago, she said.
She has produced a DVD which focuses on her insights, meditation and exercises, the link is below as well. The practice is geared towards basic health and wellness. In most cases although the practice has to be monitored and tailored often; Qigong exercises and treatments can change often in recovery, and a expertise really is needed just as a fyi. Her story is an important one you can read the original feature one from many years ago here:

Cyber Addictions: Electric Heroin

I wrote about this back on April 27, 2017 after watching a different special and cases in which that one was even more troublesome in many ways: https://qigonghealingcentre.blogspot.com/2017/04/must-see-special-on-smart-phone.html
So here we are again..many of my close friends and students gave me "the roll of the eyes effect", on this discussion. Many said there is nothing we can do, which is a reactive stance on this issue. I believe Qigong should be promoted for cases like "Process Addictions" and topics like this should be brought to light. For after all many come to Qigong in many cases as a last result after all else has failed. This Forty minute video explores several common cases, that might surprise you. Re-valuate your participation with this technology. Qigong is a system that can help with detoxing and aiding on the road to healing from this "Electric Heroin". For sure a professional Therapist in the field of process addictions will be needed as well. Find a Qigong teacher that understands how to use in these cases. I have helped many people in recent month's; practice needs to be monitored and gauged.
Here are some additional useful notes in regards to the above on Cyber/digital addictions. It is my belief if the potential for problems are high why get involved in the first place. I have received alot of response from readers about these articles.
The problem will not go away; and to avoid dealing with it for sure is the wrong action as well. I feel people should take a stand and have boundaries on what they allow in their life as well. Parents might not always be aware of what their children are doing on their communication devices, but experts say there are obvious signs when it’s becoming dangerous.
The red flags are “Is it interfering with school? Are you getting bad grades? Is it interfering with their functioning?” says Dr. David Rosenberg, department chair of psychiatry at Wayne State University and the Detroit Medical Center. “Or they’re breaking things, or they’re fighting with you, they’re hurting themselves, they’re refusing to go to school, they’re not sleeping at all, they’re gaining a massive amount of weight.”
Interesting to know for more than a year, 20/20 followed families in the “depths of their struggle,” exploring the “destructive dependence, extreme change of personality, isolation, and physical signs during withdrawal” victims can experience, ABC said.
If you took he time to watch the video we had seen the special examined the cases of a 15-year-old girl who went to rehab after a dangerous online relationship; a 14-year-old gamer whose obsession prevented him from attending school; and a married man’s excessive gaming habit that severely impacted his wife and four children.
Kevin Roberts, author of Cyber Junkie and Escape the Gaming and Internet Trap, says parents with children in similar situations should take action “when you have a child that you can’t trust, who time and again will not follow the rules, lies, covers up the behaviors.” And pay attention to “emotional outbursts when you turn off the game or take the smartphone,” he cautions. “That’s a red flag.”
But don’t go it alone. “The most important thing, if you’re concerned, is to get a comprehensive assessment by a trained professional, a mental health professional,” says Rosenberg.
To stop bad habits from forming, Roberts advises parents to be careful early on. “We want to start considering screen use from a very young age,” he says. “Children under 7, I’d severely limit it. I would not use technology as babysitters.” He adds: “Require outdoor activities, sports, performance in school as requisite behaviors that you have to accomplish and achieve in order to use technology.” Considering the example you’re setting is also crucial: “You have to be the model,” says Roberts. “You have to model the behaviors that you want in your children.

The video presented here is for appreciation of Chen Tai Chi Chuan. It is for viewing and common understanding and is not a detailed form breakdown; impossible to study from. I will post a more complete one in the future with notes.
Chen Tai Chi Chuan Orthodox Barehanded form; most commonly known as Lao Jia Yi Lu is the original Tai Chi Chuan training form from Chen Village. The first form consist of 74 flowing postures, and can take anywhere from 15 - 20 minutes depending on how one articulates its movements/form.
The demonstration is performed by the Chen family member Chen Xiao Wang. I will say, that from a personal/comparative experience point of view, Chen Tai Chi Chuan is a extremely important family style since Yang, Wu, Sun & Hao are derived from it's original teachings. I has benefited from it's teaching's and practice throughout my Tai Chi Chuan Journey and is enjoyable. Visit his website here:
Kung Fu for Life

Kung Fu for Life
Zhang Hexian story will inspire to practice your Kung Fu for life. A practitioner for 9 decades, don't let Zhang Hexian's age fool you as the 94-year-old has a particular set of skills that make her a nightmare for thugs anywhere. The resident of Ninghai County in east China's Zhejiang Province has been practicing Chinese martial arts since she was four and through the years she has refined her skills with great diligence and effort to become affectionately known as "Kung Fu Grandma".
Regarded as "the village of martial arts," nearly everyone in the village where Zhang lives practices kung fu. As the eighth descendant of her family, Zhang learned kung fu under her father's instruction at the age of four and has continued to practice throughout nine decades. "My dad took me to sleep at that time. When we woke up in the morning, we started practicing kung fu in bed. I learned basic martial arts skills such as pushing palm and throwing a punch at an early age," said Zhang Hexian. Practicing kung fu has become a daily routine in Zhang's life.
Every morning, Zhang does kung fu exercises without feeling tired. Apparently she is in good health. "She wakes up very early and does physical exercises every morning. She usually runs around the village for morning exercise,"said Zhang's son Feng Chuanyin. Zhang recalled that she once fought against a bully when she was young. The bully was beating his wife when Zhang saw him. To uphold justice, Zhang grabbed his collar, ripped his shirt off and urged him to behave well.
Apart from being a deterrent to hooligans and ruffians, Zhang is also a warm-hearted woman willing to help others, which is one of the secrets of her longevity.
Northern Wu Tai Chi Chuan (Sophia Delza)...

Wu Tai Chi Chuan
Sophia Delza influenced several generation's of Tai Chi Chuan practitioners. Her teachers where Ma Yueh Liang and Wu Ying Hua. A professional dancer by trade she encountered the Wu Chian Chuan Association in Shanghai late 1940's. She studied with this unique husband and wife team for around three years, learning the Wu Family Long Slow Form. Most likely she learned from Wu Ying Hua, whom is always credited for teaching and demonstrating the slow form. This is not to say that Ma Yueh Liang did not teach her as well. It is well known although that Ma Yueh Liang and the original flowing fast form are like one. He always demonstrated the form and taught it to students. His pushing hands skill was second to none, in which he had incredible control of anyone whom he would engage with. Most people that think of Mah Yueh Liang can recall either seeing him on Bill Moyers special or seeing him on archival footage of him laughing quite joyously as he flails someone away with effortless energy.
In 1961 Sophia Delza published her first book on the slow form taught to her in Shanghai titled " Tai Chi Chuan Wu Style: Body And Mind In Harmony -- The Integration Of Meaning And Method". The original was done all in line drawings which can be challenging to get the form correctly. The book is still of value although even as old as it is. Prior to her death in 1996 shes wrote a 10 Chapter reflection book on Tai Chi Chuan titled "The Tai Chi Chuan Experience Experience: Reflections and Perceptions on Body-Mind Harmony". This book would be welcomed by anyone whom practices or teaches Tai Chi Chuan.
She's an important American Tai Chi Chuan pioneer, wrote one of the first books on Tai Chi Chuan from a westerner, operated first Tai Chi Chuan Studio, taught at the actors studio and even gave classes at the United Nations. Most likey was the first non Chinese female to learn Tai Chi Chuan and teach it in the public. A real trail blazer of a person whom lived a full and exciting life!
My observation of her performance of Wu Family Slow Form: Reading her first book and seeing it demonstrated somewhat on the archival footage, I can tell that she had practiced what she learned in Shanghai. With that being said although experienced eyes can tell she had modified the form and influenced it with her own perceptions on how to do the Style of Wu Tai Chi Chuan. It is not as crisp and "oh so perfect" as in some Wu Tai Chi Circles. One could say that her take is in the "Style of Wu Tai Chi Chuan" . She most likely wanted to feel she owned the style in her body/mind and yes her stage and dance exerience most likely influenced her view on the form. Her interest seemed to be on the health and spiritual side of Tai Chi Chuan and that is ok. We all will get old and health maintenance is primary to anything else. If you don't have your health you have nothing. Don't listen to the "naysayers", about her I think her base was most likely health and wellness students, students learning how to improve dance through Tai Chi movement. She obviously was a good teacher/practitioner lived a great long life. She had learned latter in life so obviously her interest was longevity. She had edited Ma Yueh liang's book on Pushing Hands back in 1984 and wrote a preface for it as well. So with that being said one can say Mah Yueh Liang thought highly of her enough to participate in editing a one of a kind book, based on oral and physical instructions.
Take time to read Ben Judkins article on Sophia Delza; a well written and researched article:
Sophia Delza books of Interest:
(I) Tai Chi Chuan Wu Style: Body And Mind In Harmony -- The Integration Of Meaning And Method: Originally published in 1961and revised in 1985:Sophia Delza describes the Northern Wu Style taught to her by Mah Yueh Liang & Wu Ying Hua, with careful directions and illustrations for learning the practice of the exercise-art of Tai Chi Chuan
(II) The Tai Chi Chuan Experience Experience: Reflections and Perceptions on Body-Mind Harmony: This book written fours years prior to her death, Sophia Delza. Delza, offers succinct and illuminating comments from her viewpoint as both teacher and practitioner. She expresses the substance and function of Tai Chi Chuan that lie behind the movement and that are manifest in the movement to only the most discerning eye. She provides insight and inspiration for entering into Tao of Tai Chi Chuan, that integrates body, mind, beauty, and goodness. Beginners and experienced followers of Tai Chi Chuan pathways who have studied it for a number of years will benefit from the guidance provided in this book.

The Value of East Asian Healing Exercises
When we practice and study healing exercises we must first comprehend what they are. Practice's such as Qigong, Taijiquan and meditation were developed by early indigenous people of China. These practice's are a type of traditon where Heaven, Humans and Earth are harmonized as one.
The healing meditations and movements naturally nourishes ones life and quite easily preserves one's health. Taijiquan taught from many angles in today's world do preserve health and vigour and prevent illness, prolongs longevity. They all are suitable from the very young to advanced age as well.
Yang Family Taijiquan is the most popular tradition in common Taijiquan circles. I began my Taijiquan practice as a Junior high school student in search of ...? Well I had no idea where it was going at the time except for the pure joy of doing it. Taijiquan has been a huge part of my life. I think there's something here for anyone, and one would be foolish not to embrace some level of it . In upcoming post I will highlight the differences in "angles" found in Taijiquan of today.
The video here is for Taijiquan lovers, it demonstarted by Grandmaster Yang Zen Duo, that through a lifetime of dilgent practice even in ones advance age we can cherish the practice.
Legendary Healers of Traditional Chinese...
by qigonghealing on January 6, 2017 at 12:46 AM
875 Views - 0 Comments
Four famous Traditional Healers are revered in the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They are Bian Que, Huatuo, Sun Simiao, and Li Shizhen. Read more below:
Bian Que: Bian Que is the earliest known physician, from China's Warring States period, from 770 to 221BC. According to historical texts, Bian Que had supernormal abilities to see through the human body; coines as xray vision. He's the founder of the pulse-taking diagnosis. Legend has it that Bian Que revived the crown prince of the state of Guo; believed to be dead. Using pulse diagnosis, Bian Que found the prince was in a coma and treated him with acupuncture. Thus, Bian Que was known as "the doctor who brings the dead back to life."
Hua Tuo: A extremely important fgure to modern Qigong; Hua Tuo is known as China's first surgeon, living during the late Han Dynasty and early Three Kingdoms era. According to historical texts, Hua Tuo was called the "Divine physician" or "Shenyi" in Chinese. Hua Tuo invented Ma Fei San; an anesthetic drug used to reduce pain during surgery.
One legendary story has it that Hua Tuo treated Guan Yu, the famous general of Emperor Liu Bei in the Shu state during the Three Kingdoms period. A poisoned arrow had injured Guan's right arm during a battle. Hua Tuo applied anesthetic, made a cut in Guan's right arm, and then cut away the poisoned part of the flesh. The surgery was done while Guan was playing a board game. According to historical accounts, Hua Tuo saw a tumor in Cao Cao's brain and suggested brain surgery. But Cao Cao ruler of the Wei state during the Three Kingdoms era thought Hua Tuo wanted to kill him. He imprisoned Hua Tuo who died in prison. Later Cao Cao died of this illness. Hua Tuo is also known for developing "Wu Qin Xi" The famous Five Animals Frolics Healing exercises.
Sun Simiao: Sun Simao is one of the most influential physicians in the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is distinguished by his application of medicine and his adherence to an ethical code. His interest in medicine came from his own fragile health whereby he treated himself as his first patient. His mastery of medicine, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism made Emperor Wen of the Sui Dynasty, and Emperors Tai-zong and Gao-zu of the Tang Dynasty seek him out as an imperial physician. However, Sun Simiao declined these posts and devoted his life to being a physician who served the common people. He believed the best way to care for a patient was to prevent an illness before it occurred. The worst care was to treat an illness that had already occurred because it meant that he was unable to keep his patient healthy.
Sun Simiao's best known works are Qianjin Yaofang (Prescriptions Worth a Thousand Gold for Emergencies or Precious Prescriptions for Emergencies) and the Qianjin Yifang (A Supplement to the Essential Prescriptions Worth a Thousand Gold or Supplement to Precious Prescriptions). The first book is comprised of 30 volumes and lists 5,300 prescriptions. The second book is also made up of 30 volumes and lists 2,571 prescriptions. Sun Simiao's observations about diseases and his prescribed treatments are noteworthy even today. For example, he knew cholera and diarrhea were caused by what people ate and drank and not by "evil spirits" as was commonly thought. He correctly identified tuberculosis as a lung disease, which was a new concept of this time. After successfully treating 600 cases of leprosy, he is considered the earliest expert on this disease in China.
Sun Simiao is also renowned for his identification and treatment of deficiency disorders. Even though he was not exactly sure of the cause of goiter (hypothyroidism caused by lack of iodine), he knew it occurred in people who lived in certain mountainous regions and drank unsanitary water. He prescribed medicine from the thyroid glands of deer and sheep because they are high in iodine content. Nyctalopia, which is night blindness caused by lack of vitamin A, was successfully treated with pig, calf and sheep livers that contain large amounts of this vitamin. He is the first person in the medical history to document the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of Beriberi, a deficiency disease caused by lack of vitamin B1. For this, he prescribed combinations of herbs that were high in Vitamin B1.
The elderly also benefited from Sun Simiao because he was a strong advocate for maintaining health throughout a person's life. He thought life could be prolonged with measures such as performing daily Qigong, regular physical exercise, and massage therapy. He advised against excessive drinking, eating raw meat, and spitting in public. He also believed diet therapy should be tried before resorting to medicine.
Other advances made by Sun Simiao were in the areas of acupuncture, moxibustion and pharmacy. He thought moxibustion should be performed prior to acupuncture, and he was successful in determining essential acupuncture points. Sun Simiao also combined acupuncture with drug therapy, and stressed using the ashi point, which is still used by acupuncturists today. His knowledge of herbs was vast, and he insisted on harvesting them in the proper season and processing them correctly. The nickname "king of pharmacology" or 'king of prescriptions" was given to him because he was especially knowledgeable in preparation of medicinal herbs.
Li Shizhen: Li Shizhen from the Ming Dynasty is one of the greatest Chinese herbalists. He's regarded as the father of traditional Chinese medicine and the patron saint of Chinese herbal medicine. Li's key contribution is the "Compendium of Herbs" or "Bencao Gangmu" in Chinese.
The book covers nearly 1900 (1892) different herbs in 60 different categories. In ancient China, these great physicians were said to have had supernatural abilities. They could see through the human body with the Third Eye. According to traditional Chinese thought, this third eye is located in the forehead, slightly above and in between the eyebrows, and can be activated through spiritual cultivation practice. While this is a mystical concept, the Third Eye is part of the Pineal gland. Today, modern medical science recognizes that the front part of the Pineal gland contains the exact structure of a human eye.

This is a excellent introduction into Zhan Zhuang Gong. The video series demonstrates in a short time a easy to do routine. Master Lam is a long time main student of Master Yu Yong Nian, whom is a direct student of Wang Xiang Zhai of this lineage of Zhan Zhuang/Yi Quan made famous in Beijing.

Master Lam Kam Chuen is a world-renowned Chinese martial artist, feng shui master, traditional Chinese healer and author. He is proficient in both soft and hard martial arts as well as in an assortment of Chinese weaponry. However, he is most well-known for his teaching of Chi Kung (also spelled Qigong) and Tai Chi.
He was one of the pioneering forces in promoting Chinese soft martial arts to western audiences, particularly to the United Kingdom. He teaches in the United Kingdom, in the United States and in various countries in Europe. But he has students all over the world.
He was most likely to coin the phrase "standing like a tree" back in the late 80s and it had since became popular.
