DAY 794. I look for beautiful scenes when I make all my movies, but I take even extra care to find the right spot for the Qigong Lesson Films (the full-length, detailed, narrated ones you get when you sign up*). This hidden forest faerie land came out of nowhere; the Qi felt like we had stepped beyond the Mists— as though just beyond the veil the rest of world lived, but here by these ancient boulders, these old, old Ponderosas and their babies, here we were set apart to thrive with no constraints of time. . This is a clip from this month’s Lesson Film, set to go out to Kwan Yin Kung Fu patrons soon. It’s Black Eagle Wings, a Metal Element that cultivates a fierce precision and a reliable protection that rests on trust and intention. This form assists us in the practice of firmly and lovingly saying “No” when necessary. . *If you’d like to learn this one and many more Qigong forms, you can study with me online. I offer a Pay-What-You-Like subscription series in which you get a new Qigong Lesson Film every month and instant access to the entire archive when you sign up via Patreon.com/breafisher {Link in bio}. . Thank you to all my patrons! My gratitude for you lifts me up. I’m continually inspired by your support, your engagement, your encouragement, and most of all, your practice. ✨🙏🏼✨ . To get on the list to be the first to know about upcoming workshops, immersions, and retreats I’ll be offering, DM me your email address. Or sign up at www.KwanYinKungFu.com and you'll also get a free Qigong Warmup Lesson Film, a series of dynamic stretches to open your joints, warm your muscles, and prepare the body to move with more ease. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Kungfu #Gungfu #Gongfu #TaiJiQuan #TaiChi #Qigong #Qi #TCM #MoveQi #Practice #EverydayGongfu #EverydayGongfuFilms #BreaFisher #KwanYinKungFu #GuanYinGongfu #TCM #TraditionalChineseMedicine #EagleClawGongfu #EagleClawKungfu #TakeExtraCare #HiddenForestFaerieLand #BeyondTheMists #OldPonderosas #NoConstraintsOfTime #BlackEagleWings #MetalElement #MetalElementQigong #QigongForPrecision #QigongForProtection #QigongForSayingNo

Going low and slow in TaiJi practice opens and strengthens the hips, increases blood flow and power in the muscles and tendons of the legs, and stabilizes the spinal support in the body. TaiJi is a comprehensive routine that, just on the physical side, benefits the whole body in many ways. Having this flexible but strong foundation enables us to improve our longevity and standard of living. There is no requirement or limitation on when to start. Young and old alike can reap rewards from the methods of TaiJi practice. #WDTKA #kungfu #gongfu #TaiJi #taichi #golow #kungfutraining #masteryuan #kungfumaster #wudang #wushu #wudangwushu #casualkungfu #chengdu #China #chinesemartialarts #martialartslife

It's #teapettuesday and we have some new friends to share. @lostinyunnan and I had fun a couple weeks ago and made some extra teapets to share. We have 2 sad robots, 2 orcas, and 2 mushrooms pairs. First come, first serve! They're only $10 each before shipping. Just make a comment about which one you want and I'll pm you. This is a really nice clay that seasons quickly. They take on color faster than Yixing teapets. These would make great little gifts for the tea lover in your life. ❤️🌲 #teapet #teapets #teafriends #PNW #orcas #mushrooms #puerh #puer #tea #puerhtea #maocha #China #Yunnan #HappyHolidays #MerryChristmas #gongfu #gongfucha #gongfutea #crimsonlotustea #crimsonlotus

Perhaps the most interesting thing about tonight’s choice of tea wasn’t that I decided to give in to my craving for Puerh, but rather that I’ve only ever had a Puerh 1 time before in my life. This tea, a Tse Puerh Beemcha, has a very citrusy and acidic body (i did steep the tea wrong, by breaking chunks of leaves off the cake with a tea pick). The aftertaste is more akin to puerhs, and sports the classic compost flavor they seem to have. This particular tea’s compost flavor seemed slightly flat, similar to cardboard. It felt like something was lacking, and left me anticipating more. The texture fit the aftertaste well, as it, too, was flat. It had a strong astringency to it i was not expecting, but it was also very thin - it did not wrap around my tongue or provide any resistance to slurping, but rather, just slid down my throat instantly. It did not care to linger at all. I’m not disappointed by this tea - rather, i’m not pleasantly surprised. I went into this tea with average expectations, having picked it up from a local chinese market for a fairly cheap price, and i think it provides a decent cup of puerh in a pinch. Oh, who am i kidding? I was rather disappointed. I don’t like acidity or thin water in my tea. #tea #teatime #teaset #pottery #ceramics #teapot #darktea #puerh #gongfu #water #traveltheglobe #mindfulness #gowithin #meditation

Yu Lang Xiang (Magnolia Blossom Fragrance) This is a tea has sweet,fruity floral aroma and taste. Tasted some light honey notes along with subtle fruity notes! No astringency and a nice smooth aftertaste. Light golden liquor. I took this tea to 5 steeps Gongfu style.

stefano_andrianopoulos. The kicks have been one of the more challenging parts of training here

The kicks have been one of the more challenging parts of training here, but also one of my favorite facets of it. Learning how to control momentum and hip rotation with every spinning kick was a huge challenge for me since I have no martial arts background. As always, I am far from satisfied with where I am at, But I wanted show some of my progress with my favorite kicks. - - #training #practice #fitnessmotivation #kick #kungfu #gongfu #wudang #wushu #china #progress #kicks #martialarts

Finally made it! 🙏💪 I give my thanks to all my Shi Xiong, Shi Jie, and Shifu for supporting me through the Shao Lin journey. It has been a long three years of hard work and sweat training under Shao Lin martial arts and philosophy; which has been a life dream of mine since childhood. It’s an honor to take up more challenges through more training and teachings to come. Funny saying from my Shi Xiong, Shi Xing Ran, “How does it feel being half way to monk-hood?” #shaolin #kungfu #gongfu #wushu #philosophy #prediscipleship #apprenticeship #instructor #journey #hardwork #sweat #training #awards

thea_philosophia. Enjoying a moment of solitude this evening with some Yang Qing Hao \"Te

Enjoying a moment of solitude this evening with some Yang Qing Hao "Tejipin" sheng pu'er which was harvested in 2004 from the Yiwu Mountain area of Yunnan Province, China and aged in Taiwan since that time. Of course, solitary tea cannot be divorced from self reflection, so I'm also reading some of Seneca the Younger's letters to his friend Lucilius. This passage in particular stuck out to me. Not because I'm an old man, but because I'd like to perfect the art of living and dying well long before my time. . . "In my old age I have ceased to desire what I desired when a boy. To this single end my days and my nights are passed; this is my task, this the object of my thoughts: to put an end to my chronic faults. I am endeavouring to live every day as if it were a complete life. I do not snatch it up as if it were my last; I do regard it, however, as if it might be my last. The present letter is written to you with this in mind as if death were about to call me away in the very act of writing. I am ready to depart, and I shall enjoy life just because I am not over-anxious as to the future date of my departure. Before I became old I tried to live well; now that I am old, I shall try to die well; but dying well means dying gladly. See to it that you never do anything unwillingly." (Letter 61.1-2)

Week #1’s poll results are in! The question was, “do you like to preheat your gaiwan/pot with water before adding tea leaves?” Of the four who voted, all four said yes! I tend to do it often as well. I feel it helps open up the tea leaves and give it a fresh flavor, but it’s best to let the pot cool a bit first, lest you burn or damage the leaves. If you are anything like me, you love being asked questions about yourself. I’ve always been a huge fan of polls, questionnaires, and the like. They’re fun! And so, as a small celebration of hitting 40 likes, i’m going to start doing a weekly poll! #tea #teatime #gongfu #ceramics #porcelain #poll #vote #questions #gowithin #pictures #exploretheglobe
