 Qigong and Taiji: Choosing Your Path 
Self healing, self care, self initiated healing, energy balancing, performance enhancement and even reaching toward spiritual peace all are benefits that may be gained from the practice of all forms of Qigong including Taiji.

The variety of possibilities for what to study and from whom to learn are endless. China and the other Asian countries are immense and ancient. Estimates for the number of varieties of self improvement methods, which includes all forms of Qigong and Taiji, is between 3,000 and 5,000.

Clearly, after thousands of years of development and use each of the different approaches is valuable and valid.

You may be asking: How then shall I decide which type of practice to pursue? Would the practice be different if my goal is healing rather than performance enhancement? Is the simple path as useful as the esoteric path? Can I learn from video tapes, audio tapes or books ? Is it necessary to have a teacher? Is it better to practice with a group? I've heard of Qigong Masters, shall I seek a master? How much is it necessary to practice?

To get further information choose from the above options.
