I recently put out a free Ba Gua training video, teaching the internal essence of the art. Now the one person that I ever taught this to in-person is telling me that I should give you guys the second half of the story. Oh wow! You mean the other 63 walk and change patterns? NO! I do not mean that. Don't think like that. What he wants me to share now is the 2nd layer of work that comprises the full internal training for the basic circle walk. Physically or optically it's the same work I showed on the new film. Energetically though it's a different mode.
So yes, there's a second layer of work you can crank with this, if-and-only-if you can really work and feel what I've shown in the primary layer. And I'm using this word "layer" very pointedly. The first layer is based on the counter-twist. That's what I taught in the film released over the weekend. That primary work 'breaks you down' (in a good way) in that, like disassembling a rifle, you become intimately familiar with every energetic sub-component.
This is my Circle! There are many like it, but this one is mine!
But in fact of course it isn't the circle per se that matters, only the energy intensification. Anyway, that secondary layer is where you snap-assemble all those cleaned, oiled and shiny parts back into a single undifferentiated unified whole again. I didn't get into that because
(a) nobody can even understand or do the primary layer on which the integration is necessarily based;
(b) 25 minutes is a lot of free film right there already.
But the one person I've ever taught this to for real (irl) is telling me to just go for it, given I've already unbagged the cat and the stuff is just too way cool. He says if even one other person can get it running for real, it'll be good for business LOL. So I'm thinking later this month I'll put out Volume 2, where I'll teach the secondary, unifying layer of circle work. The two layers work together, it's not like you ever graduate from one only do the next. It's like how the master swordsmith beats and folds the white-hot blade, in a way breaking it down repeatedly but only so he can fold it even stronger and stronger on every cycle. So if you're into this, you can look forward to that 2nd Volume on the foundation of Ba Gua energy activation.
