Dear Mastery Journal Reader,
Please enjoy the h issue of Mastery Journal featuring anexcing Master of the Month – someone, who hardly needsintroducon – Mantak Chia. With his numerous bookspublished on the subjects of Internal Alchemy, Meditaon,and Holisc Health, Mantak Chia oen oers the rstintroducon to Qigong that many westerners receive, whenperusing through the web pages on amazon.com or at theirlocal bookstore. This was the case for me and I think is oneof the main reasons I found such benet and progress in myown dreams of increased wellness by using Qigong.Last month, I was very fortunate to aend the 13
WorldCongress on Qigong in San Francisco, California. TheCongress oered a tremendous opportunity to come incontact with other Qigong praconers and teachers,experience many classes, workshops and demonstraons,as well as to broaden the horizons around the manysubjects of Oriental Medicine, healing and spiritualtransformaon. For me, it was eye-opening to see peopleaending from all over the globe. Tai Chi, Qigong andTradional Chinese Medicine are truly being embraced bythe western world. Many of the masters also traveled fromsuch places as the UK, Canada and even Italy!As you ip through the pages of this issue of MasteryJournal and our future issues, closer to the back of thepublicaon, you will nd some candid shots from manyof the various exhibions, classes and demonstraonsfrom this year’s Congress. I had a wonderful me travelingto San Francisco with Lama Tantrapa, who presentedtwo workshops at that event, and I think you’ll nd thatthe Qigong images from the Congress will inspire you topracce ever more diligently!Best Regards,Thomas Pamelia
