Living the Classical Chinese Traditions
This article is a transcript of a 2012 interview with Master Zhongxian Wu
Master Wu, could you tell us how you got started in taiji and Qigong?
At an early age, I developed a strong personal interest in Qigong. This was supported by the culture in my hometown. People there cherished the traditional way of living. I grew up without roads, busses, piped water and electricity. Many people in my hometown practiced the art of ancient shamanism, Buddhism, Daoism, and martial arts traditions – chanting, meditation, herbal folk medicine, acupuncture, etc. – were very common. I found all of these things very interesting and I started to try.
