I ONLY GOT SHORT-TERM BENEFITS
Oh well, that was four months ago. But I spent that $1000 course fee, and airplane fare to Malaysia, plus my previous trip to England for a regional course. I wish the money-back policy extended to 12 months past the course.-- Tom
Sorry about not replying any further. I guess originally I just wanted to share my opinion that I think Hun Yuan and Wahnam are different. I didn't like the comparison being made.
Yes, I think relaxing is important. I don't know why I just didn't "get it". With all my effort, I think the blame more lies on the teacher (Sifu Wong) and method (Shaolin Wahnam chi kung). I tried for months and months, not making any breakthroughs, thinking maybe sometime I would. Instead, my progress went downhill until before I realized it, I needed to be in a hospital for depression.

I wish the money-back policy extended to 12 months past the course. I only got short-term benefits of about 3 weeks following the course. I felt more energetic then.
After that point, not much more. I didn't rid myself of any chronic health problems. Hey, after 6 months of diligent, (correct) practice after just one course, shouldn't one be feeling pretty darn good?
On a side note, I've never seen Sifu Wong or any of his advanced students do any special chi feats. Have you? Not the pictures, but in person?Tom
