ZEN+ : Simple, Direct, Effective : ZEN+ Benefits

What they don’t tell you about getting really good at something

By Marcus Santer

So I have this theory right…

Goes like this:

If there’s something you want to learn,
find someone who’s great at it
and learn from them

Simple right?

And with the advent of the Internet this has been made a helluva lot simpler.

So you start by buying a book or two, maybe a DVD from an expert of what it is you want to learn.

Pretty soon you realise you want to go deeper, because you’ve got questions that haven’t been answered in your books and DVD’s.

And anyway you want to improve your skills.

So what do you do?

That’s right you go to a seminar, a workshop or arrange a 1-2-1 if you can.

And this is where my frustration is.

It’s what they don’t tell you about getting really good at something.

Let me explain with an example…

A couple of years back now I decided to have a go at making a knife.

I absorbed the info on Youtube, bought a couple of PDF’s and invested in some basic tools.

And made this:


I enjoyed the process so much I kept on going and this is what my workbench looks like today:


Two years later I definitely feel I’ve reached as far as self learning is going to take me.

Plus, I really want to learn how to make folding knives.

Except I can’t.

Because to the best of my knowledge there’s nobody teaching how to make folding knives in the UK.

Now don’t get me wrong.

I can think of at least 4 knife makers in the UK who make folding knives.

But they don’t teach and I don’t know them well enough to write and ask them to show me.

And that’s the rub my fellow ZEN Beast.

  1. I want to learn
  2. I’m prepared to pay

And yet I can’t here in the UK.

Frustrated doesn’t begin to express how I feel.

So what’s the solution?

I’m not so sure at the moment.

I’m not part of the Inner Sanctum Sanatorium of knife makers here in the UK, not even a blip on the radar.

So currently the only solution I can see is to take a trip to South Africa and enrol on one of the folding knife making courses on offer out there.

We’ll see.

I mean it’s not like it’s the first time I’ve had to travel to learn the skills and techniques needed to get really good at something.

Oh well.

And that’s the bit they don’t tell you about getting really good at something…

Be prepared to have to travel 1,000’s of miles!

So if you want to deepen your PERFECT Qigong skills and you’re prepared to travel in order to learn from me face to face…

Your next opportunity is in Trondheim – Norway.

I’m offering two workshop:

  1. Workshop 1: Saturday October 24th 2015 – An Introduction to PERFECT Qigong. Discover a simple path that leads to mastery of your health, happiness and vitality in just 15 minutes a day.
  2. Workshop 2: Sunday October 25th 2015 – Cosmic Shower. The ultimate in cleansing. Discover how to reveal your inner splendour.

You’ll get plenty of time to ask your questions and I promise to do all I can to give you the benefit of my 15 years of practicing PERFECT Qigong.

I’m working on the website today, so should have full details available for you tomorrow.

Until then…

Bye for now


P.S. Whilst these are Qigong workshops, if there are enough ZEN Beasts there I’ll make time outside of the workshops for you to get some face to face time to ask your ZEN+ questions and deepen your ZEN+ skills.

It’s certainly easier than learning how to make folding knives!
