I practice Qigong. "Qigong (or ch’i kung) is an internal Chinese meditative practice which often uses slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques to promote the circulation of qi within the human body, and enhance a practitioner’s overall health"Wikipedia.

The specific style of Qigong that I practive is called YiQuan and we focus on health benefits of Qigong. I’ve been now practicing it for more than 3 years. I’ve written about my first YiQuan Qigong lesson in late 2006 and also a review of YiQuan almost a year later.

Unfortunately, there’s not much information about Qigong in English, espcially free information. There are some books, many translated book and it’s good. Lately, though, I’ve found a good Qigong podcast (audio, like a radio). This is a weekly podcast, with each episode about an hour long, which is available through Blog Talk Radio. The podcast is called "The Secrets of Qigong master" and you can listen to it on their site, download the sound files or subscribe using iTunes for automatic updates, which is what I do.

Every episode is an interview with a different Qigong master and the host brings the best people such as Mantak Chia, Chunyi Lin, Dr. Norman Shealy, Li Junfeng and many others.

Listening to some of these episodes I found it fascinating how masters of different styles and schools share the same vision of Chi, the universe and health. Some of the questions and answers go deep into these issues which makes the interviews very interesting.

So, if you’re into energy practice, energy healing, internal martial arts, and especially if you practice some form of qigong, don’t pass on this fine podcast.
