Movie Reviews

Immence instruction, but slow
Lena, LMT | Nassau, NY | 05/16/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I own serveral Qi Gong dvds & taken Tai Chi at my massage college in NY.
Mr. Milton definitely knows his stuff, what he narrates could fit into a decent size book. This video is done outside with lovely scenery with two students, one male & one female in simple cotton shirts/pants.
He speaks very relaxed & takes his time. He tells you everything you need to know before & during the exercises so you do end up doing them about 5x to 100x depending on how fast it takes to do it until he finishes his explainations. He also keeps doing it even after while there is silence.
I tend to get bored or give up easily so it took me a couple viewings to get through it since there was so much good information.
The distributer is soundstrue which on their site has a short video of the dvd.
This is from soundstrue:
* Smiling Energy practice for infusing positive, affirming emotions into every cell of your body
* Crane Massages-ideal for clearing stagnant energy from your abdominal organs
* Four Bears Practice-an easy-to-learn exercise related to t'ai chi, which provides the same benefits of physical fitness, prevention of illness, and a deep connection with the earth
* Posture of the Tao-combining classic meditation and qi gong energy practice for mental clarity and presence"
Fantastic! A fabulous set of Qi Gong exercises!

"I have seen many Tai Chi and Qigong DVDs and John P. Milton's 3-disk series is one of the absolute best available today! The exercises on "Cultivate Longevity" are fun to learn. I especially enjoy the "bear" exercises because they are so easy to learn and you feel the energetic results immediately. I think it's wonderful that each movement is explained well so that you know exactly how and why to do the exercises. Once you learn the exercises from the DVD, you can then take the included laminated cards with you to do your practice anywhere. I recommend these disks for everyone from beginners to advanced students."
A Foundation for Life

"This presentation captures the foundations of Qi Gong practice that are essential if one wishes to reap the many benefits offered. John Milton's teaching style is clear and direct. I highly recommend this for both those new to T'ai chi and long-time practitioners who desire gentle reminders of the basic teachings. As in the cultivation of "beginner's mind," practicing these foundations helped me realign and vitalize my own practice. Many thanks Grandfather!"
Clear and comprehensive

"John Milton is a master practitioner. His life long devotion to the healing aspects of qi gong is powerfully transmitted through this DVD. His instruction is clear, his presentation is deliberate and his gentle style invites both beginners and experts to gain valuable insights to enhance and deepen their practice."
