Steps On How to Be Mindful

Courtesy of ricecatalyst.org
Being mindful is a personal attempt to know thyself. 

Deep. Philosophical. Easy. 

Hard to do. 

You can read books, articles, listen to audios, watch videos and be taught or mentored. It can be complicated. Or you can make it as simple and natural as breathing in and out.

Each morning, I start my mindful day with Tai Chi and Qigong. It would be nice for you to join me. Unfortunately, you will have to walk that path by yourself, a journey if trekked properly will lead you to self actualization and inner peace.

Being Mindful During the Holiday Season

This is the time of year when we celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve.  

Unfortunately, happy times comes with the burden of additional tasks and responsibilities like carrying  heavy rocks on our backs with every step we take.

Mindfulness of Normal

Recently, I revisited the practice of mindful meditation. For those who aren't aware, it’s simply the ability the focus on the moment.

Now think about it?  How many of us can focus on one thing; for example, a job to be done without distraction; multitasking, listening to headsets while cooking, watching television while texting, or thinking about a multitude of things while walking to work.

Benefits of Tai Chi Energy: Healing and Staying Healthy

By Sensei Domi

Staying fit and healthy are things we seniors or baby boomers think about all the time.  As soon as we wake up and roll out of bed, the aches and pains remind us of our ages.

My wife and I were at a friend's house, sharing wine and conversation.  Aside from talking about grandchildren, retirement, and fixed incomes, we talked about our health, how once vibrant and athletic we were, now reduced to taking handfuls of pills --  our bane: arthritis, diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure; in essence, taking synthetic prescription medication to stretch the inevitable.

Gotta stay alive, right?  But is pill taking our only option?

Anti-Aging, DHEA and Qigong


By Sensei Domi

As a long time martial artist who now trains Taijiquan and Qigong every day, I’ve definitely enjoyed some of the neat benefits, one of them is appearing youthful, years younger than what my nearly 60 years on this earth presents.  Everyone who I meet with ask me what my secret is, I tell them that I eat right, avoid stress, enjoy life and most importantly, exercise daily, more specifically qigong and taijiguan, you may know it more as Tai Chi.
