Editorial Reviews

Tai Chi Ruler is a unique method of Chinese Chi Kung (Qi Gong) that nourishes and strengthens the internal energy of the body. It consists of simple exercises performed whilst holding a 'chih'- a shaped, wooden ruler, which activates the eight strange flow or psychic meridians and the macrocosmic orbit of chi.

Tai Chi Ruler exercises enable the practitioner to quickly build high levels of chi in the body. The health benefits of regular practice can include release of chronic tension, improved structural alignment, improved blood circulation, increased balance and poise as well as a calming effect on the nervous system.

Simple to perform, yet profound in its effects, this rare form of chi kung is a true jewel of Chinese Taoist alchemy.

This elegantly crafted DVD leads the practitioner through a classic set of Tai Chi Ruler exercises as well as demonstrating the empty hand variations. Using clear diagrams and animation the dynamics of chi circulation are explored in depth.

This is the North American NTSC version of this DVD. For the PAL version (for Europe and other countries) go to https://www.createspace.com/301938

This is a GREAT DVD! I chose this one because its blurb said this practice activates the eight strange flows or psychic channels, aka the eight extraordinary meridians, which have fascinated me for years... The DVD is beautifully produced, set outdoors by a small river, and truly a pleasure to watch. The T'ai Chi Ruler set consists of 6 very simple exercises, includes variations and increasing levels of difficulty, and can be done with or without the "ruler." Many teachers say T'ai Chi Ruler is one of the easiest practices to feel the chi, and that is my experience with this DVD. One very interesting section illustrates each extraordinary channel and describes briefly what each does, and which elements of the exercises stimulate that channel. The DVD has clear diagrams and animations which demonstrate the chi circulation. Narrator and demonstrator Phil Young says the exercises are good for health enhancement, and also to increase the chi of the hands for healing. A sample of the DVD is available online.

I was surprised at how quickly I felt the energy from this practice, and easily believe Masterworks' claim that it will be particularly useful for energy healers, as well as those looking for an easy-but-effective practice to improve their overall health.

Update, January 2013. I've been doing tai chi ruler as taught in this DVD every day for 18 months now. It is a truly amazing practice that continues to grow my energy field, little by little, day by day. I have tried a number of daily chi gung practices over the years, and this one rates far above the rest in ease, effectiveness, and palpable energy cultivation.
