Taoism emphasizes the underlying unity of the individual and the cosmos, living in harmony with the true Way or Dao (Tao), giving up petty viewpoints, simplicity, solitary retreats, avoiding violent interference with others, a simple natural diet, natural and compassionate living, sharing with others, seeking insight into "emptiness", seeking a higher understanding or enlightenment, living a healthy lifestyle, storing and circulating energy (Qi, Chi, Prana), practicing meditation, studying and working diligently, and seeking mystical insights.These methods and practices were explored and adapted in China for thousands of years to help to maintain good health, to prevent and cure diseases, to restore vitality, to calm the mind, and to enhance the spirit of the patient or practitioner.It is likely that ancient dances, medical theory, military drills and exercises, shamanistic rituals, and Buddhist and Taoist practices were all sources for the specific and formal movement routines of Dao-yin or Chi Kung (Qigong).The ancient terms for these types of Qigong or Chi Kung (energy/Qi/breath training) fitness exercises include: Dao Yin (guiding, breathing and stretching), "guiding and stretching" or "pulling and guiding" exercises; or, Daoqi Yinti (guide the qi and stretch the body); or, Yang Sheng Fa (Longevity Practices, Nourishing Life); or Neidan (Inner Alchemy).Some of the romantic messages read 'would you like to have a cute Eurasian baby' and 'I'm learning Chinese hard so that I can treat your ears with sweet words'.Ulove's female members hold signboards as advertisement as they appear on the club's official account on Chinese social media.She is tall, blonde and a typical beauty in the eyes of Chinese people.Mr Mei told Mail Online that he decided to set up Ulove club after many men in China started asking him how they could find a wife as beautiful as his.
Mr Mei said Ulove Club currently has around 75 male members, who are mainly middle-class businessmen from major Chinese cities, and more than 300 female members, who are all Ukrainian.Artwork, medical manuals, folklore, treatises, scriptures and reports on the subject go back over 2,500 years.Likewise, military physical conditioning techniques, and training with military weapons (bow, sword, staff, saber, knife, spear, etc.) are of comparable antiquity.Before that, he had already had a trading company and a bronze valve factory in Ukraine.'Compared to Ukrainian men, Chinese men are better husbands,' said Mei Aisi, who referred to Ukraine as 'a land of beauties'.'Ukrainian men often have male chauvinism. This happened to my wife's sister.'In comparison, Chinese men know how to care for their families.'Based in Kharkiv, the second largest city of Ukraine, Ulove is a match-making agency that connects talented Ukrainian women with exceptional Chinese men, according to Mr Mei.Female candidates as young as 17 wear glamorous makeup and evening dresses at the monthly speed-dating event to attract successful single men who travel from China to Ukraine especially in hope of finding a pretty European wife. Deep-pocketed bachelors first pay a 96,000 yuan (£11,000) annual membership fee - or 300,000 yuan (£34,600) as VIPs - before spending an extra 69,000 yuan (£8,000) on each dating event held at a luxurious golf club in Kharkiv.Mr Li, who is from Shaanxi Province, China, said European women are more out-going and innocent - compared to Chinese women.
