    Life Force 1 : Sex Drive : TKF 16

    Posted on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 2:30 PM by Sifu TW Smith the site author">Sifu TW Smith

    Life Forces Life Forces Shape Your Life. This 3 part Podcast series will look at each. First up, Sex Drive. Whether you have bunches, not as much as you want, have plenty but are easily distracted by it. We must all work with it.

    If you breathe you will be engaged with these Push Life Forces. Most religions and cultures have teachings associated with these forces. A summary of various teaching led me to this :

    Life Force 1 : Sex Drive

    Sex Drive, Libido, Sexual interests is addressed in every philosophy, culture and religion.

    I have already been asked if I plan to turn this into an ebook. I am chewing on the idea :) If you have an opinion if I do, make sure you contact me. See links below for Twitter, Email, Facebook.

    This podcast created the interest to start our SexDrive ChiKung Workshop. A 2 hour Workshop designed to enhance and balance our sexual vigor and happiness.

    "The day you are born and you gasp in your first breath. Life Forces are brought into lungs with the first breath. Deny their presence, empowers them to train you. Embrace their presence, give yourself a chance to train them. "

    Transition from a Busy Day : Use Tai Chi, BaGua, / Podcast TKF 014

    Posted on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 4:42 AM by Sifu TW Smith the site author">Sifu TW Smith

    Transition Busy Day, Tai Chi, BaGua and Meditation Mindful Transition Podcast :

    This episode brings us to an almost seasonal concern that students don't feel they have enough time to practice. A busy life makes it hard to make the time, but even when you do make the time,

    Is going from '100 to 1' just hitting the brakes too hard?

    I have been there, many times. Use your Tai Chi and BaGua to transition from a busy day to a calm one.

    How do you transition from "Warp Speed" to "Calm Body and Mind"?

    My clinical and corporate experience gave me an excellent opportunity to learn how. Avoid the "Mental JackKnife" that can occur if you go from 100 to 1. :)

    We reference a few of the workshops and classes that are coming up, you can see down below.

    The KungFu Bootcamp is going fantastic. Looking at going through it again very soon.

    Question We Recently Received:

    8/15/2014: Leah after BaGua Class sent us an email

    Please tell everyone thank you for Saturday. I always leave feeling appreciative of the welcoming atmosphere at the Kwoon. Very refreshing and happy that I can look forward to the next time."

    "My Dad is 76 years old and lives in Wilson with his wife. Both would benefit from Tai Chi and seem to be curious about it. Does your school have a Tai Chi component that seniors would enjoy? I'm trying to find a program to get them started in. But it needs to be very calm, low pressure etc (I've seen some very paradoxical approaches to teaching Tai Chi; my folks need very friendly and laid back, likely with no tests, etc)." Our Response : "Our atmosphere is relaxed and I respect the care you are taking for your family. Let me know and we will meet you soon."

    Email from South China

    Sifu Smith, My apologies for the late response. I have been traveling the last month and just returned home. I really enjoyed checking out several articles on the kung fu podcast and reading about your background and heart for the treasures of life and the Chinese martial arts. Very cool. I appreciate your willingness to share a little about our efforts through our for purpose company. If you believe what we do will be interesting and encouraging to those who view the podcast I would be glad to write something up or answer any questions you may have. I am currently in SE China so my responses would be slightly delayed because of the difference in time. Thank you for your contributions to helping people live longer, healthier, and happier lives. Blessings, Shifu Stan Pawolaski

    scientific reasons to meditate Thank You, goes out to:

    Sifu Pawoloski : Thank you for the Tweet, www.middlekingdomminiatures.net / Twitter : @pandaxia

    Supports Orphans with cool hand made Kungfu miniatures.

    Ashley Heinnickel @AshHein has followed on Twitter and I have met a couple times. She is going to also take part in mindfulness program that is designed for folks who have to blend training into a day, rather than carving 15-30 minutes out of the day.

    If you have 2-4 children, the only down time you may have is from car pool to the office.
