    Cultivating Spirit, Training Energy - December 2018, Malaysia

    As we announced here Sifu will be running the following course in December 2018, in Penang:

    Cultivating Spirit, Training Energy:
    Embodying the wisdom of Zhang San Feng

    We have been working with our students in the UK to help them, and ourselves, to understand and embody the wisdom of Zhang San Feng, with Sifu's generous teaching, help and support. He has also generously agreed to teach this course and we would like to invite everyone from around the world to join us in Penang in December 2018.

    The course outline is as follows:

    4. To learn how to use those skills with compassion and wisdom

    5. To experience Cosmic and phenomenal reality … at the same time

    6. To have a direct experience of Cosmic Consciousness


    Course Content

    challenges during the process

    taught by a Grandmaster


    Aspirations and needs met

    1. To clearly understand the nature, process and benefits of cultivating spirit and training energy

    3. To experience Cosmic Consciousness here and now and learn how that can be used wisely and responsibly


    Time Table

    From my understanding, among other things Sifu will be using elements of Dragon Strength, Cotton Palm and Five Dan Tien training to bring this course alive
    .

    As we explained in this post Sifu will also be teaching two courses at the Summer Camp in 2018 that will be useful preparation for anyone interested in taking this course.

    If you know anyone who might be interested in:

    Experiencing their lives as a meaningful flow of Cosmic energy

    Experiencing Cosmic and phenomenal reality at the same time

    Experiencing Cosmic Consciousness

    Embodying the benefits in living a healthy, happy and meaningful life


    and doesn't read the forum much or is not currently training with our school please pass on these details to open up the opportunity to them.

    Looking forward to seeing lots of you in Malaysia in 2017 and 2018 .

    With metta,

    We thought it would be useful to post the course announcement in this part of the forum as well as it allows people to ask questions and have a discussion. This isn't a Q&A but a chance to discuss amongst ourselves. With any luck Sifu will agree to a Q&A later.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Lots of love,

    Dear brothers,

    Thanks for moving forward with what you had already started in regards to the Arts of Immortal Zhang San Feng and many thanks to Sifu for his generosity in agreeing to teach such wonderful Courses. As it turned out, 2018 will start and end in a very ineteresting manner, with very special Courses in January in Finland, this Course already proposed for the begginng of December and with the recent announcement of moving the Special Course to December also.


    Looking forward to a very exciting end of 2017 with the Essence of Shaolin and a marvellous progression to an amazing 2118.

    Best wishes,
    Angel

    Dear Uncle Barry,

    This certainly sounds like a course not to be missed. What are the requirements for attending? Is this a Taijiquan course?

    Best Wishes,

    Dear Andrew,

    Greetings! Hoping your journey is going smoothly. Although your questions weren't directed to me, I will like to give you an answer to one of them.

    Is this a Taijiquan course?
    No, it is not a Taijiquan Course, it is a Wudang Kungfu Course.

    Looking forward to see you soon!

    Best wishes,

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for the question and Angel for his answer. I think Angel may be referring to the Summer Camp 2018 course, which is called Secret's of Wudang Kung Fu. That camp will be running from 9th July to 15th July. Obviously, depending on how one looks at it, it is Kung Fu, Taijiquan, and both Kung Fu and Taijiquan.

    Regarding the course in Penang 2018: we have been avoiding labelling it as anything other than as we described. So, there will definitely be training energy in various ways and there will definitely be cultivating spirit in various ways.

    The requirement/preparation for it is to be a good student i.e. practise what Sifu has taught. And, I am guessing, Sifu might at some point put up a video of sequences that will be used at the course. From what I understand this will include aspects of "Dragon Strength Chi Circulation" Set and Cotton Palm.

    It would be fair to say this will be a high-level course. It is also part of a progressive journey for us since Sifu taught the Legacy of Zhang San Feng at Summer Camp. If people have done, or plan to do, any of the courses Sifu has taught around the world based around Wudang Kung Fu, Zhang San Feng's legacy and Cotton Palm they would have prepared well for this course. But it is also true that any practice that Sifu has taught will also prepare you for this course. All of our training includes the three aspects of what Zhang San Feng practised and passed on - body, energy and mind - in a single practise.
