There are some good posts on Wujifa Zhan Zhuang over at Mike’s Internal Gong Fu Blogspot that you may enjoy. One that I thought was interesting was his post on the mental frames we put onto our Zhan Zhuang practices.
Here is a clip from his blog:
What I’ve tried to share here is that preparing for Zhan Zhuang practice can involve much more than waking up the brain early in the morning or relaxing in the evening or preceding practice with some activity like stretching or walking or whatever. If you can become aware of your intent or focus or attitude, then like baking chocolate chip cookies, you may discover if you’re putting the chips in before, or after baking.
In Wujifa and our Zhan Zhuang practices the physical framing can be very important. What can even be more important in Wujifa and Zhan Zhuang training can be the many different mental approaches one can follow. In Mike’s blog he explores some nice points, make sure you head over there and read his post from Sept 2nd on Framing Your Zhan Zhuang Practice.
