The work of a master teacher.


Devotion of inspiring.  Understanding the power and complexity of this way of health is both easy and very difficult. The work is obvious and the outcome so kind, yet, this internal work is very demanding. We arrive at a place of comfort knowing the grounding in practice. In this every day work we recreate the foundation in reconnection.

The work of a master teacher in the field of Chi Kung and Tai Chi was offered. In the Chinese tradition the work is given to the student. Work of this nature helps reclaim consciousness and wholeness. In this, the lineage is held and protected in heart. I dedicated my life to work as is expected. The devotion and work of inspiring others isn’t common, for a woman this is unusual training.

The training is continual and helps to resolve the issues with aging. The use of this kind of practice helps to caliber the changes when growing old. The way of practice is nothing but gentle and conscious work.

The training isn’t common. I was blessed to work with masters. These were the ones who took refuge from the torn health and courage of the patriarch. These people remembered the price paid for the work given. They knew how to hold power and never disrespected the trainer. This meant that students were given privilege and power.

When training with master teachers the work is delicate. The masters clearly hold the way of work to support the continuation of the training work no matter what. If this means teaching at the most basic level for the people, then the lineage is held.  I looked to see why I could be chosen out of so many possibilities. It was simply that I was open to receiving with kindness. 

The work of practicing together gets held in a strong way. Energetics build on all levels and the play gets stronger. The student learns the holding of energetics and how a playful forum of heart doesn’t harm. Regular practice offers a center for health. When the student is given the support to learn the forms and gives time to practice with the group the learning unfolds in kindness. It’s a way of old that teaches how to hold the power together. There are times when the work is done alone and the practicing is done without others, these are special moments when the heart is held without the group.

With decades of experience the student is given the task of sharing the practices. I was given the task to teaching Chi Kung and Tai Chi. When the training takes on a mind of its own the knowledge precedes itself. There is a way that the work will continue due to circumstance. What we gained through this experience is the knowledge of how to listen to the flows of a collective that helps to hold us in the light of consciousness.

 

 

 

I give thanks and honour those teachers who have held the gift of light and have offered excellent training in Chi Kung and Tai Chi. May these practices be passed down with the same love as was given.
