Travel

Trains and flights within China can be booked via internet on these platforms. They also have apps for mobile devices:

http://www.ctrip.com
http://www.qunar.com

Places from where our drivers can pick you up are following. The prices are for one car going, it might be shared with others.

- Qingdao airport pick up is US$100.00
- Rizhao airport pickup US$40.00
- Weifang train station pick up is US$70.00
- Wulian train or bus station pick up is US$10.00.

Visa

Usually the procedure is always the same: You need our invitation letter plus the hotel reservation, with this you go to the China Visa Center, and a few days later you can pick up the visa. Common maximum is 3 month study-visa, this may be extended for 1 more month when you are in China.
But sometimes also longer periods may be issued. The longest is 1 year, when you have a job in China.

Next year with the opening of the school in Wulian we will have several job opportunities. For details get in touch with me via:  mail (at) practicalmethod (dot) de.

Shopping

Hey Guys, actually you can buy nearly everything in China. We first came here with three packages of diaper and then found out, that you can buy them in every supermarket to nearly the same price like in our country (Germany) :)

Hard to get is coffee and cheese. But if you really need something for your “survival”, you can get really everything online  on www.taobao.com. This is pretty much like amazon in the west. Somethings are more expensive then in our home countries, because they have to be imported (chocolate, bio-baby food etc.).

A hint for using the search field of taobao: try to translate to Chinese first, then enter the Chinese characters. Taobao also can deal with lot’s of English terms, but the price range is quite large and very likely you get much better deals when entering Chinese.

Do you want to live in tune with nature, surrounded by people striving for similiar goals, raising your children (if you have or want to have a family) in a harmonious community, rather than give them to the kindergarten?

Or do you have some money at the bank, but no idea what to do with it, how to invest AND would you like to spend some years on our mountain?

Then Daqinshan is the place for you! “Daqinshan” (大青山), literally “big green mountain” is a remote area in Shandong Province. Read more

Already some time ago now I had an interesting discussion with another person from Germany. There was one aspect showing up, which in principle could be very interessting for all of us who want to learn Taiji.

Here and there Master Chen did point out that in Taijiquan (or at least our style of Taijiquan ..) there is nothing which is related to anything we know from normal life, to the contrary, in general things are totally opposite. Right? Read more

DQS 2015 - Practical Method Germany 2Since Aug, 1st we are here on Daqingshan for Fulltime Training with Master Chen and all fellow students and disciples. Below some more pictures of these days.

We had plenty of opportunities  to improve our Taiji, there were lots of lessons with Master Chen, sceduled ones but also the “little things” in between – just as I was used to experience it on DQS. Very nice, that though the whole thing here is getting bigger, the main spirit did stay the same. Read more

From Stuart Shaw

 

May 1: More students are coming up to the mountain to learn from Master Chen.
may_2

Thoughts: When teacher teaches us a principle, we quickly “interpret” into something we already know. This is not learning. This is teaching ourself. We lost the real teachings. The right way is to take notes verbatim. Don’t need to understand right away. Follow the method.

May 2: Touch more points. It is like typing on a typewriter with all your fingers instead of typing with one finger.

Each movement requires a non-movement to support.

Dont Move is absolute in space. Don’t Move is relative. Don’t Move is also directional. Read more
