Some may not realise, but there are as many different ways of meditation as people that do it. Many have more than one way of meditating. We start by explaining what mediation is and provide easy examples for students to start on. Our focus is on meditation forms created by Master from his Teh Nei Chia Chuan curriculum.
Meditation forms may be done in various natural postures (lying, standing and sitting) and later can be incorporated into stationary and moving forms. The way to incorporate meditation in higher-level physical forms may be shown.
There are also deliberately incorporated aspects of focus and approach which allow guided customisations so individuals can have their own personal way to meditate, which is a relief to those beginners who commence saying, “I’ve never been able to meditate.” For those saying, “My won’t factor is stronger than my will factor,” it is heartening to know that meditation increases mental strength and lucidity, making previously impossible discipline, slowly develop into capabilities.
You may also be guided in the use of meditation for work and recreational activities for performance enhancement. Benefits include lucidity, creativity, health improvement, stress release and beneficial states of euphoria or calmness.

What do I need to bring to learn Teh Nei Chia Chuan Health, Meditation, Breathing, Qi Gong, Massage, Tai Chi, Nei, Kung and Kung Fu?
Clothing – if you wish to comfortably manage the activities, wear flexible long shorts or pants and a loose t-shirt. We wear black pants and white tops.
After three months, you are expected to wear the uniform.
For formal occasions, you would be given plenty of notice and expected to have the formal uniform jacket.
Shoes – are not to be worn on the gym mat so you can have bare feet or socks/ stockings. It is recommended if you wear shoes on the tai chi lawn that they do not have a strong grip, for it prevents you from sliding, turning and spinning easily. Master always wears Kung Fu shoes, for they are cheap and flexible. Your Senior Instructor mainly has bare feet, enjoying the grounded feeling.
Water – we are on filtered rainwater at Forgedale. Bring a drinking vessel so you can rehydrate.
Loose-leaf folder or similar – if you wish to expedite your training, it is important to get into the habit of writing down what you learn and questions you would like to ask. Then over time, you will have created your own customised learning manual.
We suggest a different for each loose-leaf page so that as your learning deepens you can add to the page and add extra pages. A book can be frustrating and restrictive. Master is a stickler for writing things down and dating each entry. You will then know the context and gain an appreciation for your improved learning over time, too.
Though we may use videos as learning aids, reliance on videos is not considered an appropriate way for students to learn. We encourage memory enhancement and patience, letting the learning flow naturally.
Published books are available from Master who can be contacted via his Facebook page. In each class, we read one or two pieces of prose from Master’s books. Master shares a lot of his literature on his Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Teh-Nei-Chia-Chuan-Tai-Chi-Kung-Fu-147054698663845/
Insect protection – as we are in a bushland setting and may train outdoors or in the open gazebo.
Weapons – are provided for lessons initially. After three months, you are expected to have your own. Beginners start with the bamboo staff and a plastic tai chi training sword.
