Hello Chi Gong thread, So just for an update, I experimented with the Zhan Zhuang standing chi gong a couple more times, and my experience was that though it gave me immediate energy, it led to me crashing/heating up in the long run. My acupuncturist suggested that if I work with chi gong, to do something with flowing movements, rather than standing in one place and letting the energy build. I have no doubt that the Zhan Zhuang would be very helpful for someone with a stronger constitution, just not the right thing for me right now. So...I have begun working with chi gong again, and thought I'd share what I've found. I did day 3 of the following free program from Spring Forest chi gong this morning. They felt amazing, and I have been energized since: http://www.springforesthealingfest2013event.com/?aff=4653 I wrote down the exercises, and think I will do them on my own. They are meant to be done standing, for 30 minutes, but I did some sitting and some standing, for much less than that time, and still got a lot of benefit. Be aware that each video is only up for 48 hours, and you've only got about 16 hours from the time of this posting left to watch this video, but there are more in the series, and if you sign up for their mailing list, they offer these free "Healing Fests" several times a year, through which you can access free videos on chi gong. Also, I have been experimenting with the following seated chi gong practice, which takes 10-15 minutes to do in the morning: It is the best seated chi gong program I have come across - very gentle, and more the style of someone with CFS.
