Bagua Zhang is an internal martial art and form of energy cultivation that manifests from
the wuji state of primordial consciousness. From the primordial consciousness the taiji wheel
turns generating the realms of form with eight characteristics called trigrams. There are four
cardinal and intermediate patterns of qi flow. Each pattern has a direction, age, color, symbol,
mantra, mudra, channel, point, form, add infintum... and palm change. Bagua Zhang is practiced
stepping in a continual circular motion gathering all of the energies of the eight directions
while the eight palm changes create circles within the circles like the planets of the solar
system rotating and revolving at the same time. Once practitioners can perform all of the
eight palm changes their channels have been opened and they can connect with the energies of
the eight direction and develop their own unique style based on their own set of
circumstances and interactions with the variable energies of others who enter the Bagua sphere.
