Can T’ai Chi Keep You From Going Crazy?

Can T’ai Chi Keep You From Going Crazy: T’ai Chi and the Physical and Mental Health of College Students

A group of several scientists from the Department of Physical Therapy of Georgia State University conducted a study published in The American Journal of Chinese Medicine* and Medicine and Sport Science** to assess the mental and physical health in college students and whether the practice of T’ai Chi could improve their overall health.

Tantric QigongStudents attended an hour long T’ai Chi class twice a week for 3 months that included 10 minutes of warm up exercises followed by 50 minutes of T’ai Chi instruction and practice.  Their levels of physical and mental health were measured using a health survey questionnaire (SF-36v2) before and after the intervention.

Assessed physical parameters included physical function, body pain, and general health. The mental assessment included perceptions of one’s vitality, mental, emotional, and social functioning.  What the researchers found was that both physical and mental balance improved over just 3 months or 24 T’ai Chi class sessions. This was particularly noticeable in the mental health arena.

College age students, being younger, tend to be somewhat healthier physically than older adults. Mental health can be a different deal though. The stresses surrounding college life can be quite significant, and students tend to be less experienced in healthy mechanisms to cope with this. The findings that T’ai Chi noticeably improved the students’ perception of their mental balance is therefore quite significant. My own experience as a college student learning T’ai Chi was that the practice was quite calming and balancing, in fact, an emotional lifesaver!

The scientists concluded their research paper by recommending that colleges offer “Tai Chi as a component of their ongoing physical activity programs available to students.” So, yes, T’ai Chi can perhaps keep you from going crazy. Even if you are A College Student Gone Wild!  © 2013 Keith E. Hall and www.Inner-Tranquility.com  All rights reserved.

Meditation & Conscious Breathing

Saturday, July 31, 1 PM, Olney, MD

breath2inBreath is Life! The quality of your breathing directly influences the quality of your life, and odds are your breathing is not nearly as efficient as it could be. The experience of routine stress, anxiety, injury, developmental or other traumatic events, even birth, can create deep holding patterns in the body which limit life-force and dampen your spirit.

Conscious Breathing derives its techniques from ancient Yogic and Taoist systems such as Pranayama, T’ai Chi, and Qi Gong breathing and shares some similarities with systems such as Rebirthing. This course will introduce us to methods that will:

Reverse the effects of accumulated stress and trauma.

• Begin to remove obstructions in the flow of one’s vital energy.

• Increase life-force by drawing on the energy (Chi, Prana) surrounding us at all times.

• Improve meditation, integration, well being, peace of mind, and mind-body mastery.

Increase your ability to contend with life’s challenges & fully enjoy its delights.Tuition: $35 Discount for early registration.

Surviving an Economic Crisis with your Self Intact

Friday, June 5th, 2009
6 Tips for Surviving an Economic Crisis with your Self Intact
One Path Will Fragment Your Consciousness, The Other Will Set You Free

The unemployment rate has reached its highest levels in recent memory. Major U.S. and international companies are restructuring, laying off employees, or just going bankrupt. Food prices are up, oil prices continue their slow rise after Obama’s election, and the economy is giving itself a chunky swirlie.

More importantly, my favorite el-cheapo movie theatre has permanently closed it doors. Oh, and that global warming, starvation, and pestilence thing continues unabated.

Something is happening here. But you don’t know what it is. Do you, Mister Jones? If you have been addicted to ever increasing economic crisis, recession, tantric qigong, 8 treasures, eight section brocade, ba duan jin, 8 pieces of silk, 8 twists of silk, 8 brocades, qigong, self mastery, qigong for self mastery, qigong for enlightenment, enlightenment, self actualization, self realization, spiritual awakening, kriyas, kriya yoga, kundalini, kundalini yoga, kundalini awakening, kundalini activation, kundalini rising, meditation, kundalini meditation, wu wei, t'ai chi, taiji, t'ai chi chuan, t'ai chi chuan yang style, long form, qigong meditation, Vipassana, Zen, inner tranquility, inner peace, bioenergetics, neo-reichian, Reich, orgone, qi, chi, ki, vitality, life force, chakras, tumo, dumo, dantien. tan tien, hara, bagua, Taoism, taoist, taoist tantra, tantra, tantra yoga, dakini, daka, goddess, tantrika, tantrik, stress, stress management, 10 minutes, 10 minute exercise, 10 minute stress, 1 minute stress management, 1 minute meditation, 60 second relaxation, 60 second stress manager, personal growth, spiritual growth, yoga, Sifu, classes, instruction, workshops, seminars, Intention, Manifestation, The secret, Yoga Nidra, Higher Consciousness, The Law of Attraction, What the bleep, Buddha, Buddhism, Tantric Buddhism, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Aspen Hill, silver spring, Brookeville, sandy spring, Laytonsville, Potomac, Derwood, Montgomery County, Frederick, Germantown, Maryland, District of Columbia, Washington DC, guided meditation, visualization, Theta brainwave entrainment, guided relaxation, online programs, meditations CDs, meditation downloads, meditation mp3, ambient nature sounds, ocean surf, pheromones, self healing, qigong yoga, energy yoga, chakra yoga, chakra qigong, chakra chi kung, Chakra meditation, Howard County, Columbia, Frederick, Baltimore, Northern Virginia, Prince Georges County, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming levels of external, material gratification as part of your self-definition, ya surely gotta be jonesing by now. Or freaking out. Probably both.

Last year, about 2.5 million Americans lost their jobs. We could have another 2 to 3 million jobs evanesce in 2009.  For many people, losing their job results not only in a loss of income but also self-respect, even their raison d’etre. Despondency, despair, a feeling of victimization, shame, melancholia, terror and anger may quickly follow. Thirty percent of those who have not lost their jobs report “burn out” syndrome due to corporate downsizing. Not that the CEO’s salary has been downsized, I mean the number of employees has.

Trying to do more with less, these companies lay off employees and pile the extra work on their remaining serfs. A study published by the Institute of Behavioral Science with a grant from the National Institutes of Health* shows that these retained employees are prone to greater job demands that may contribute to alcohol and drug abuse, depression, and work related injuries. In addition, the study found that layoff survivors often experience worsening physical health: They tend to eat poorly, smoke more, suffer from neck and back pain, and increase their use of sick days.

“None of the effects are good,” says psychologist Frank Landy, author of Work in the 21st Century. “Layoffs clearly have emotional and practical consequences for companies and workers.” Those psychological consequences can be long-term, lasting six years, according to the study published by the Institute of Behavioral Science. In addition, the effects of surviving multiple layoffs tend to be cumulative. They add up over time.

“It only takes one action of distrust to lose basic confidence in the employer…Once the trust has been undermined, it’s very, very difficult to recover,” says Landy. “There’s no data that suggests workers become more resilient. ‘I’m a survivor, hear me shout’? It doesn’t happen.” Whip a dog long enough and it stays hangdog whipped.  © 2009 Keith E. Hall & www.inner-tranquility.com. All rights reserved. Contact us for reprint information.

Tantric Qi Gong: FAQ

Tantric Qi Gong: Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is Tantric Qigong?
A. Tantric Qigong (or Chi Kung, Chi Gong) draws on traditional techniques of Taoist, Tantra, and Yogic practices. These practices, which have remained secret for millennia, have been revised to make them more accessible and efficacious for today’s world.

Do I need any special equipment?
A. Not really. Loose clothing such a sweat suit or yoga pants are desirable, as is a floor mat or blanket.

Q. I feel that I am so busy that I don’t have the time to incorporate anything new in my life.
A. Once learned, the 8 Treasures Tantric Qi Gong exercises can be performed in as little as 10 minutes.

Q. How long are the classes?
A. Beginner classes can meet for 60 to 90 minutes for 7 to 8 sessions. Intensive workshops can be presented in a 1/2 or 1 day format.

Q. When is the best time to practice?
A. Traditional times are in the morning and in the evening. For today’s harried professionals, a few minutes at lunchtime can make a big difference in one’s workday.

Q. Do I need a special place to perform the exercises?
A. No. Almost any place indoors or out will do. On average, a 3 foot by 6 foot space will be sufficient.

Q. Are the exercises aerobic?
A. Tantric Qi Gong can be characterized as “non-impact” aerobic exercise. There are strong cardiovascular benefits with little risk of injury. The 8 Treasures use the mind to effect positive physical and emotional changes, in this system there is no need to stress the body to achieve these benefits.

Q. I play a competitive sport, is it worth my while to incorporate these exercises in my training?
A. Yes! Tantric Qi Gong is a good warm up and cool down for more strenuous exercise. The exercises increase circulation, respiratory capacity, and oxygenation of the muscular and nervous systems, yet are not fatiguing at all. In addition, Tantric Qigong presents a forum for mental discipline similar to Zen (Zen tennis, Zen Golf, Zen archery, Zen basketball, etc.) increasing mental acuity, focus, and overall awareness. It has been said that Tiger Woods practices qigong.

Q. I am under quite a bit of stress, can Tantric Qi Gong help?
A. Stress, whether at work or at home, is a complex “parfait” of emotions under pressure. Regardless of their origins, Tantric Qi Gong helps the mind and body let go of these destructive reactions and creates a more calm, centered, alert, and efficient mind set.

Q. The advent of terrorism, rise in urban violence, and economic recession have made me much more anxious than in the past, what can this system do to help me feel more secure?
A. The sense of personal security is a balance of external and internal factors. Tantric Qigong begins by creating an awareness of internal balance in our bodies, minds, and emotions. We then extend this awareness through our senses to the external world. This sphere of heightened discernment and personal empowerment produces greater physical and emotional security. The reality is that we are much more likely to be harmed by a degenerative disease associated with chronic stress than any other external factor. Powerfully increasing our internal poise and self control reduces both the false perception of a threat, and the concomitant anxiety / stress reaction.

Q. I work in an office, and my work does not require physical exertion, yet after a few hours I feel fatigued and lethargic. Just having a cup of coffee no longer seems to work as well as it used to. How can this be counteracted?

A. It is well known that the combination of sedentary (desk bound) work habits, fluorescent lighting, stress, and computer radiation has a deleterious effect. In Qigong, we say that you are suffering from a depletion of energy or Chi (Qi). A few minutes of Eight Treasures Tantric Qigong will restore your energy without the aftereffects of caffeine. You can also use our 1 Minute Stress Manager and Relax! At the Beach: Manage Stress at Work and Home programs on CD or for download.

Q. I have a medical condition, is it wise to take this class?
A. Of course, one should always check with their physician before starting any exercise program. The exercises themselves are very gentle, yet invigorating.

Q. I have allergies, will this program help relieve them?
A. Allergies are often exacerbated by stress, so it is likely that these easy exercises could ameliorate such conditions, check with your physician.

Q. I am in therapy and I am wondering if Tantric Qi Gong could be a good adjunct to my treatment plan?
A. Tantric Qigong uses the body and breath to effect a calm mental and emotional state, so yes; it would seem to be helpful. Check with your therapist or counselor.

Q. Is this just another system of New Age psychobabble?
A. No. Qi Gong is an ancient, traditional Chinese discipline. At the height of China’s world influence, it was customarily taught to the military and medical professions, among others.

Q. I have a friend who would like to learn Qigong, but is confined to a wheel chair.
A. The exercises can be modified so that they can be performed while sitting.

Q. A relative of mine is elderly and mentally a little sluggish, can they learn Tantric Qi Gong and would it be of benefit?
A. Yes! Often the elderly have immediate noticeable benefits. A caregiver (staff member if institutionalized) can be trained to lead the exercises daily. Routine daily performance of the exercises leads to long term benefits.

Q. Is this type of exercise suitable for children?
A. Anyone who is able and willing to follow directions can perform these gentle exercises.

Q. I do physical therapy and massage therapy, are there advantages for myself or my clients?
A. For the caregiver and massage therapist, Tantric Qi Gong creates and distributes more vital life force. Body alignment allows your energy to flow unimpeded through your body. You will experience less fatigue, biomechanical or mental stress, and your clients will notice a superior quality to your treatments.

Q. I wonder if learning this discipline would conflict with my strict religious beliefs?
A. Though many people feel Tantric Qigong has a spiritual component, it is not a religion any more than jogging or swimming is. Copyright 2002-2009 Keith E. Hall Inner-Tranquility.com . All rights reserved.
