Gonzo Daoist and Dharma Punk
First two weeks of practice around Vol. 1 and 2 meds.
I'm noticing a lot of relaxation after my sessions and I heard a few times at home that I looked calmer than usual!
But on another side, I have some trouble falling asleep since I started practicing (not using waker upper at night time though) 😕
Funny thing also, almost never happens that people ask me for help, but last days, it happened several times in the street/supermarket/...
I have also a question: as I explained in my first post, I started qigong with Anthony Korahais and got some good results. Then, after learning a bit more about his former master (Wong Kiew Kit), I decided to put it aside after reading on Shaolin Wahnam forums a long thread about "overtraining" and deep cleansing provoked by their practice. It made me see that a lot of posts on Korahais' Facebook group was speaking about that as well... But I saw also that one of WKK's book is on recommended reading list of Sifu Dunn as "a notable system of chi kung".
So my question would be, is it a safe qigong practice?
I won't going back to it as I think doing anything having doubts is never beneficial in the end, but getting some lights on it would help close that chapter more easily and get it out of my mind.
Your sleep issues are likely related to channels opening more, which means circulation is better. You may want to do stillness to sink the energy. People asking for your help is generally because you seem more approachable with the literal energy that you give off now.
With regards to Wong Kiew Kit, I will ping @Roots of Virtue to chime in on this.
My understanding is that like all professionals, such as in the medical field for example, they can study the same foundation for medicine and the body, but their personal views can lead to divergence, such as some doctors pushing pharmaceuticals for extra funding but know it's harmful, others who simply follow what the scientific consensus is, and then those who get called quacks but understand the science, business, and politics affecting things. Terry Dunn endorsing readings of Wong likely is because his foundational knowledge is not wrong, though his conduct and conclusions after that are what makes it questionable.
In other words: a "quack" doctor knows what a "real" doctor knows on the basic level, but each of them makes different conclusions, whether it is about Covid, vaccines, multivitamins, sunscreen, acupuncture, or qi.
