I got quite an unexpected surprise yesterday afternoon.

It’s really opened up a whole new world for me.

Let me explain…

I recently returned from teaching PERFECT Qigong workshops in the USA.

I had a great time.

And I got to fire my first shotgun and really enjoyed it too =)

Got to love that 2nd Amendment my friends in the USA enjoy.


I was nipping to the shops to pick up some veggies when I bumped into my neighbour.

We’ve a lot in common.

A love of martial arts, an interest in weapons and a respect for discipline and hard work.

I don’t get to see him often because he works nights.

So it was a good opportunity to have a chat and to find out if there were best times for me to use some of the noisier machinery in my Worfice because I don’t want to wake him up.

And in case you’re wondering what a Worfice is it’s what you get when you combine the words: Workshop and Office together =)

And I was explaining how I got to fire a pump action shotgun whilst I was visiting the US.

That’s when he dropped the bombshell on me.

He said: “You do know you can own and fire a shotgun here in the UK? There’s a range and clay pigeon shoot about 10 miles down the road. I’ll take you with me next time I go if you want.”

You could’ve knocked me down with a feather.

Turns out there’s a thriving sub-culture of gun and knife folk here in the UK.

I never knew that.

43 times I’ve made the journey around the sun and I’ve only just discovered this fact.

Makes me wonder what else I don’t know.

So what’s any of this got to do with Qigong?

Not much to be honest, but it gives me an opportunity to share with you some facts you don’t know.


71% of people who originally joined the ZEN+ Journal, back in March 2013 when it was called the Qigong Inner Circle, are still readers 18 months later.


64% of those who are no longer readers of the journal where members for 12 months or more.


I’ve never had to give a refund.

So what does that tell you about the ZEN+ Journal?

I’m not sure…

But it tells me the information in it’s 14 pages must be purdy darn good.

It tells me that having direct, preferential access to me is highly valued.

And it tells me I’ve done a great job of finding the right people around the world to reveal everything I know about living a longer, healthier and happier life.

Not bad huh?

And each month I ship the ZEN+ Journal out to 15 different countries, with 49% of them going to the USA.

Now September’s issue will be shipping out on Monday, so if you’d like to get on board and benefit from my £65 ethical bribe…

Best Scooby Doo on over here.

Bye for now


P.S. I aim to get each issue of the ZEN+ Journal out during the first week of each month.

The September issue has been slightly delayed due to me being in the USA for 10 days and then spending 5 days building my Worfice.

Sorry about that.
