My Buddhist teacher, the monk Bhikkhu Anālayo, who stands in the Theravada tradition, teaches us in four lessons spiritual deepenings to the practice of the Standing Pillar and the sitting meditation of our Taijiquan, most of which can also be implemented in the forms.
This is the four-step gradual entry into emptiness.
I have been working very fruitfully with Bhikkhu Anālayo for over 25 years. The now worldwide known and renowned monk, multiple book author and extremely disciplined practitioner, has himself practiced Chen Taijiquan before he became a monk many decades ago.
In these very special lessons, the experiences of the Chen tradition and Theravada are now to flow together for a brief moment in order to achieve a rich yield for one's own practice.
