Right, so the lower dantian is our essence center whereas the middel dantian is the energy center, right? The md, as far as i understand, is where usable qi creation happens and also where it is distributed to the rest of the body. So why is it that in qi gong and internal martial arts breathing is done with the ld?
Also where does yuan qi get imprinted on zong qi? In the ld or md? And I've heard the ld is connected with all the meridians so that would seem like the ideal place for redistribution to me?
I'm having a really hard time understanding this.
If anyone could explain the dynamics of it to me I would really appreciate it.
