Living a Chinese lifestyle

Peace,  harmony, love and joy

In this section I share with you the high lights of living in China for a month with my Qigong Master, Zhao and his wife, May.  These include:

  • Early morning walk

    Chengdu daily traffic - Cars, busses, bicycles, scooters, three wheelers and taxi's all have right of way and pedestrians wait for a gap!

  • Qigong practice in the park
  • Dancing in the park at night
  • Walking along the river after dinner
  • Daily meditation
  • Massage
  • Drinking tea in the local tea house
  • Mahjang
  • Shopping
  • Strolling daily in fresh local farmers market

What an experience to slip into a Chinese family for a month.

The lifestyle is so relaxed. Unhurried and easy. Many people are retired at 45 years old. They are able to pursue their hobbies. Painting, singing, writing, dancing mahjong, Qigong, Tai Chi, drumming or traveling.

Social intercourse with neighbors and friends is a daily occurrence. Morning tea, afternoon tea or playing cards or Mahjong after dinner.

Qigong for health,  Tai chi, Swords, fans and whips are  widely practiced in huge groups in all the parks everywhere first thing in the morning.
