In addition to kobok's anonymous aggregated feedback survey he sent out in pm's to some of you, I would like all of you to fill out this survey. Post your responses in this thread.

This is a small survey to rate the quality, leadership, and effectiveness of the Qigong Study Group.

I would appreciate it if everyone who was in the group would pitch in and let me know how I did.
Questions are on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being poor and 5 being excellent. Just copy and paste, and rate each on the scale of 1 to 5. Comments are welcome.

    How would you rate the content of the study group for things like terminology, clarity and authenticity?
    How would you rate the exercises and their progression in the course?
    How would you rate the effectiveness of the exercises in teaching you to develop Qi?
    How would you rate the group leader's effectiveness in explaining things and answering questions?
    How would you rate the group leader's overall participation in the group?
    How would you rate the group overall, all things considered?

Thank you for your time.

    How would you rate the content of the study group for things like terminology, clarity and authenticity?

4.

The only thing I might pick at is your insistence that "jin and jing are similar enough, so talking about the difference will only confuse people." We have talked about this, and you have agreed that they are different, but insist this anyway passive dismissal of traditional terminology anyway. It is inconsistent teaching, and it lacks clarity in relation to traditional teachings, which does differentiate between the two things very clearly. They are related, but not the same.

While it is true that the topic can confuse some people, especially those not interested in martial arts, I think it is important--both because of scholarly accuracy, and because I believe that one of the duties of any teacher is to dispel such confusion from a student, regardless of the topic being taught. I think it would only take one good paragraph in the Jing lecture to deal with this very appropriately.

   
How would you rate the exercises and their progression in the course?

5.

Although it is difficult to zoom through this kind of training in such a small amount of time, the progression does build up nicely.

   
How would you rate the effectiveness of the exercises in teaching you to develop Qi?

5.

Baduanjin and Dantian Meditation have especially been good learning experiences.

   
How would you rate the group leader's effectiveness in explaining things and answering questions?

5.

Although I have not asked too many questions, I have paid attention.

   
How would you rate the group leader's overall participation in the group?

5.

Working with you, especially in relation to my Yin/Yang imbalance, has been invaluable.
   
How would you rate the group overall, all things considered?

5.

This has been a very good experience for me. With the busy schedule I've had it has been difficult at times to keep up with everything, but I am happy I decided to give it a go.

4 - I still can't prove that my perception of qi is not a fabrication of my own mind.  My current goal is to experience something that I can't explain via any method other than qi (or any other metaphysical activity).

5 - I find internal martial art training is often lacking explaination of the fundamental philosophy.  I really enjoyed all of the additional material, which helped me grasp a concept that is so foreign to my culture.

Overall I would give a 4 for all the above questions, and I have enjoyed this study group along with getting the feedback. I also want to thank all who have participated.

4, almost everything was clear and what wasn't was clarified after questions.

4, was interesting and I could see the logic why it was done this way. The last week maybe needed a "teaser" for something more difficult?

5. Learned new things and got interested in old things I've missed what's not to like?  :cool:
