Hi there!

Today we did the plain old wuji meditation (so good, always), and had the following discussion and fun: 
1. Meditation 
What do you do with your mind? 
- awareness of the breaths helps calm down the body and bring back the mind
- use of visualization, e.g., watching thoughts come and go as if on floating clouds
Differences between Wuji and other qigong meditation: 
- in wuji standing, mind is not actively guiding energy through the body
- in micro and macro cosmic orbit qigong, mind works with energy flow through major channels

2. Favorite Taiji Postures!
Names, Translations, Imageries: 
- feel the tall horse / high pat on the horse / pat the tall horse? english? 
- white crane/goose spread wings
- (Guan Dao:) "3 chops" / "5 chops" -- lamb chops, pork chops... 
Physicality / energy: 
- (2nd) high pat horse and after - all the spirals with the dantian rotation!
- white crane/goose spread wings
- double lotus (leg swing)
- fist under elbow - really stretches your spine!

3. Next Thursday, March 25, 7-8pm, we will continue our Meditation (7-7:30 pm) and Taiji Chat (7:30-8 pm).
