Taiji - Daoist Principles in Practice

Yangchengfu Chengmanching Huangxingxian

True Taiji

There is only one true Taiji, one set of principles. Human deviation gave rise to family styles (Yang, Wu, Chen etc) which each has strengths and weaknesses. Their strengths are where they follow the principles and their weaknesses are where they deviate from the principles.

We emphasize the waist movement (twisting wave) of the Chen Style, the advancing power (issuing transverse wave) of the Yang Style, the borrowing of partners force (neutralising vertical pressure wave) of the Wu style. We follow my teachers advice: "Return to the original principles, from before the styles diverged."
Lengthen Your Life

Health Secrets

After 50 years of internal investigation the secrets of good health and long life have become clear.

Your body's intelligence will maintain your health if you give it what it needs then don't interfere more.

The normal lifespan for a human is around 120 years, but each mistaken interference shortens that span.


In Response" Video Interviews

"The great purpose of life is internal evolution. All are born to this but most quickly forget why they are here."

Once enmeshed in the physical world, life serves merely the body's survival. Society's physical and social edifices, intended as forms within which humanity may evolve, become prisons. Many dream of escape but few find the practical path to freedom.

9 clouds meditation

Meditation has 9 levels

Each of the 3 main realms has 3 sublevels, giving 9 energy clouds. Meditation works on the deep structures of the mind. It is a serious and potentially dangerous exercise. The ideal is to follow a senior master who has at least 20 years of self-cultivation. However, few who teach meditation fit this situation. Everywhere, inexperienced people foolishly play with the internal life of others, changing road signs and taking shortcuts, all for the purpose of power or money. Students are led astray, wasting time and energy on superficial or imaginary methods.
