Interview with John Chang’s Neigong student

I have written earlier about this Mo-Pai neigung master in A new video of John Chang – The Magus of Java. John Chang was first shot on the Ring of Fire documentary and later was featured in the book The Magus of Java: Teachings of an Authentic Taoist Immortal by Kosta Danaos.

Kosta wrote in his book that his was not the only western student and later I posted another video, which is claimed to be of another of his western students, in 2000, performing telekinesis for the 3rd level. The video is of a poor quality, though. You can see it at Nei-kung telekinesis by John Chang’s student video

In his great blog about martial arts, Martial development, which also highlights the story of neigong and master Chang in many of his articles, Chris interviewed one of Chang’s western students. The interviewee is Jim McMillan, who’s been a long time disciple of John Chang, according to him.

Chris asked Jim the following 5 questions:

  1. How did you first become acquainted with the esoteric practice of neigong?
  2. It is often said that a traditional master will test an aspirant’s character and resolve, before deciding whether to accept them as a disciple. Did you face any such trials, or were you accepted immediately?
  3. What preconceived notions about qigong/neigong masters or methods, if any, has your personal experience since proven incorrect?
    What sacrifices–time, effort, money, et cetera–are required of a student in the Mo Pai? How do these demands compare to your previous experience in various martial arts schools?
  4. How has this training affected your physical and emotional health? Has it made your life easier, or harder?
  5. Many readers are interested in learning more about neikung, but don’t know where to start. Do you have any advice to offer?

To read Jim’s answers, head over to article at Martial Development.

It’s interesting how more and more information turns out about this interesting person.





  1. If anyone has any clues on what the meditation for level one is, please let me know! I would greatly appreciate it! 🙂

  2. WHY do you guys continue this nonsense? are you purposely misleading everyone, or are you so self deluded that you think stuff like this actually is real? I’m confused, because you seem sincere, but instead of properly testing something under proper controlled conditions and double blind protocols, you blindly accept and you endorse it instead of examining with a critical eye. where’s your critical thinking skills?

  3. I have figured out a so meof the meanings and teachings of mo pai through explorations within myself. But i fear i will hurt myself. If any mo pai practitioner can help. Maybe some guidance. Thank you.

  4. The Magus of Java is an amazing book, I read it after seeing the John Chang video online. Ive posted the video and others on my site if anyone like minded is interested – (homepage link below)

    • I have a question… Where does John Chang live ? Any clue…

  5. Thanks for the compliment and the link.

    • I looked into the martial development article and as many of the comments as I could read before many of the people became negative. I direct this toward Chris, i came across Mr. Chang a couple of weeks ago here on the internet and became overwhelmed. I can’t quite describe the feeling, but in any case I’ve since been trying as much as I am able to sift through all the scattered information I can find on how to learn (correctly) the neigong or how to become a student. I don’t have many means and more than likely wouldn’t be able to travel to the far east. But I do feel a very strong conviction to learn these abilities or practices. So if there is any way at all to get me in the proper direction I would be very grateful. Thank you, Patrick

  6. So we need to have LOUD THOUGHTS now?
