Welcome to the Qigong study group.
If you're here, you signed up for the group.
I am Koujiryuu, I'm the group leader and resident crazy Daoist. I will be leading you through the study group with content I have prepared, I will also be assisting you with questions or problems you're having in understanding or doing the material.
The lessons will be posted every Friday for the next six weeks. Except, lesson 1 will be posted tomorrow (Saturday) since today we're getting everyone organized. At the end of the group, there will be a long post about continuing training and we will take a week to try and figure out and correct mistakes, answer questions, and have a time for you to rate the group in content and leadership. So, consider it 7 weeks with the last being the end of the obligation to practice daily. I feel posting things on a Friday is good because it gives everyone the weekend to get acquainted with the material and exercises. Hopefully most of you don't work on the weekend and have no obligations or fewer obligations to attend to. Consider the weekend your time to read the coursework and try the exercises contained, to learn them before practicing for the week.
Coursework will be stickied in the forum and you can report your experiences with the exercises there.
Anyway, we will start by breaking the ice. Since we are going to be doing something deeply personal and spiritual as a group, I feel it is best if we get to know each other a little bit. I'll start. If you have a serious, valid reason not to post your name- post your alias, or something else to call you. Remember, you get out what you put in to this group.
